You can create at whatever scale you want and navigate your virtual environment however you want, like walking around or through your designs. Whether what you're looking for is painting, modeling, sculpting or animating, there's plenty of software for creating art in VR, which makes knowing where to get started quite the challenge.

Charlotte de Witte Joins Sensorium Galaxy Metaverse For Exclusive VR Performances
Award-winning DJ and producer Charlotte de Witte is revealed as the latest addition to the Sensorium Galaxy Metaverse where she is scheduled to headline a series of exclusive performances in PRISM — the world’s most anticipated virtual destination for exclusive music events. As one of Belgium’s most exciting musical talents, de Witte’s meteoric rise has seen her go from performing in the underground techno scene to headlining the world’s most renowned music festivals, with her trademark stripped, hard-hitting beats fast becoming a firm-favourite amongst electronic music fans around the globe. Growing up with Belgium’s rich history of electronic music, de Witte first caught the ears of some of the industry’s biggest festivals in her teens, landing sets at festivals including Dour, I Love Techno, Pukkelpop and Tomorrowland. Since that time, she’s gone on to headline stages around the globe, grace the covers of many influential music magazines and even found time to launch her hugely successful label and party concept KNTXT. Charlotte de Witte: “Whether DJ’ing or producing, I am always searching for new ways to use my creativity and tap into deeper layers of emotion in electronic music. I want people to remember the experience after the lights go down. Working with Sensorium Galaxy is a great opportunity to deliver a completely new kind of show with the same passion I try to bring to all my IRL concerts.” De Witte will perform in the PRISM world - a unique location within Sensorium Galaxy with supernatural properties, where the environment transforms under the influence of sound frequencies. The futuristic concert venue located in the centre of the world is set to host shows on a galactic scale.
SENSO Whitepaper Released: Extended Use Cases & Detailed Product Integration
Today is a great day for Sensorium enthusiasts. We’re releasing our long-awaited SENSO Whitepaper 2.0 — a document that unveils for the first time important details about Sensorium Galaxy's metaverse and its blockchain-based currency - SENSO. Don’t have time for a long read? Here's a quick preview:
## USE CASES
### IN-PLATFORM CURRENCY The primary function of SENSO is acting as a payment method within the Sensorium Galaxy. But there’s more to it than just paying for things, especially because of the wide opportunities it represents for users. As most of you know, SENSO can be purchased from major digital asset exchanges or straight from Sensorium Galaxy's platform. However, getting SENSO in the open market can provide a dynamic discount for users. Inside the metaverse, one SENSO is worth ~$10 per unit. That rate is applied to those buying SENSO through traditional fiat payments. This mechanism incentivizes the use of the token against fiat purchases, which positively affects the burning rate.
Sensorium Becomes Member Of The Alliance Of Blockchain Industry Z-park
Sensorium is officially joining the Alliance of Blockchain Industry, Z-park (ABI), one of the largest and most influential non-profit blockchain communities in China. Currently, the Alliance has over 220 members, including key Chinese industrial partners, research organisations and technology groups, with the aim of boosting cooperation, development and adoption of blockchain-based infrastructures across China. This membership presents a unique opportunity for Sensorium to engage with regional partners in strategic technological initiatives, as the company continues bolstering its reach in China and the wider Asia-Pacific region. "Being a part of ABI means having a gateway to a vast community of established blockchain experts and researchers, opening up limitless opportunities for cooperation. China is undoubtedly one of the world's most significant centers for blockchain technology and we couldn't pass up the chance of joining this alliance to help bring more evolution and innovation to Sensorium Galaxy", said Alex Blagirev, Deputy CEO of Sensorium. As one of the earliest blockchain alliances in Asia, ABI has led numerous initiatives in the fields of blockchain education and development, leveraging the contribution of notable partners such as Huawei, Tencent, Baidu and China Mobile to help improve growth efforts. Given its extensive presence in the region, ABI is also recognised as a trusted source in industry news and development trends. “More than ever, we're dedicated to taking our virtual reality content and entertainment possibilities to new frontiers. As such, we're thrilled to be a part of a respected community of like-minded partners and we look forward to working together in achieving breakthroughs“, added Blagilev.
SENSO Featured On MXC Exchange; Trading Competition Now On

As of May 29, 2021 at 16:00 (UTC+8) the following pairs will be made available: SENSO/BTC, SENSO/ETH, and SENSO/USDT. With over five million users across 70 countries, MXC ranks among the world’s top digital-asset trading platforms and as such, adding support for SENSO will significantly increase the availability of tokens through a safe, reliable and fast trading exchange. Currently, MXC supports the most significant number of trading pairs and global crypto markets, having over 480 coins on the platform. “Partnering with MXC to include SENSO on its platform is a significant step forward in expanding accessibility to new markets,“ said Alex Blagirev, Deputy CEO at Sensorium Corporation. ## Two Ways To Celebrate It To celebrate this exciting collaboration, we will be launching a deposit and trading competition on MXC. Here are some important details to keep in mind: ### Deposit Competition The deposit competition will start at 18:00 (UTC+8) on May 29 and run until 22:00 (UTC+8) on June 3.

Digital Immortality: Deciphering A Modern Promise Of Eternal Lives
We’ve tried it all. The mediums, the necromancers, the seances and the Ouija boards. There are also the mummies, the cyborgs, the cryonized, the genetically engineered and the biohackers. And yet, no matter how creative humans have tried being, we’re no closer to cheating the grim reaper than we were when we thought that drinking mercury was the key to everlasting life. Mankind has been chasing immortality for millennia. All the bizarre iterations aside, it’s fair to say that something lurking in the depths of our nature wants to desperately transcend biological limitations - and ultimately transcend death itself. More than just biological, immortality seems to be the ultimate human spiritual need. Vanity or not, we are also wired to want to be remembered forever by leaving behind a legacy that can outlive us and be shared with future generations. And while the formula for the ‘Elixir of Life’ is yet to be found, we are now edging closer to a transdimensional plane of existence that partially solves this age-old problem. Maybe the issue all along was less about preventing biological death but finding new ways to extend our current existence. That’s exactly where digital technologies play their part.

Best Blockchain Games To Play And Earn In 2021
Gaming is growing faster than ever before. The gaming industry is currently valued at $173 billion, with very positive indicators showing that it will surpass the $300 billion mark in the next five years. Behind this boom is a recent surge in new players, especially in mobile platforms, which have made gaming a more practical and easily accessible experience for the estimated 2.6 billion gamers worldwide. But for many, being online just for fun is no longer their primary driver. As the saying goes, time is money and players have certainly taken notice that they're making a big investment in virtual experiences with little return. So they’ve started looking for ways to monetize their hobby. However, beyond the world of eSports, there haven't even been many opportunities for casual players to cash in on the effort they put into gaming - until now. The rise of blockchain games has turned the tables on the gaming industry by making players, and not developers, the main financial decision-makers.Play-to-earn (P2E) crypto gaming is a trend that shouldn't be overlooked. But before we get into the details, it's worth understanding how it all works.
NFT Use Cases: There's More To Them Than Just Art
NFTs are all the rage. But we already know that. By now, many of us will have already come across at least a couple headlines or social media posts that we’ve probably had to scroll back just to read twice. You know, about those stories of virtual paintings, GIFs, cartoons, tweets and pictures of rocks selling for millions and all. Welcome to 2021 (because one pandemic wasn’t wild enough). But you might still be wondering what exactly makes virtual art worth that kind of mind boggling price tag, especially when, in theory, anything on the internet can be easily copied and shared. That’s because these pieces are actually NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, meaning they’re one-of-kind and can’t be duplicated. NFTs are essentially digital representations of everyday, real-life items, whose authenticity, ownership and transaction records are registered on a blockchain. This technology makes it near impossible for NFT-based digital assets to be copied, edited or hacked. Since all NFTs are: - Unique: there is always only one NFT per digital item - Non-fungible: can’t be traded for other tokens as they don’t have the same value - Scarce: the value of NFTs is tied to how rare they are They enable a new and more efficient way of commercializing digital assets, especially in industries where it’s particularly difficult to establish ownership or determine authenticity, like the luxury fashion segment. NFTs also open brand new revenue streams and have the potential to fuel the rise of innovative digital products. Many industries are already tokenizing assets including sports highlights, music albums, iconic entertainment moments and memorabilia. But as NFTs continue to grip the world, much is being asked about whether they’re just a fad and if they hold any long-term promise.
