Sensorium is officially joining the Blockchain Game Alliance, one of the world's largest associations committed to promoting blockchain and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) within the gaming industry. With this, Sensorium will be able to engage with BGA's vast network of members and take part in the alliance's numerous initiatives aimed at spreading awareness about blockchain technologies and encouraging widespread adoption. "It's exciting to be a part of the BGA and join forces with this community to advance blockchain-based projects and highlight the potential brought on by the technology. As Sensorium also continues exploring not only blockchain but the vast opportunities of NFTs, including upgradable options, becoming a part of this alliance is the right step forward for us and we hope to bring a great contribution to it, too", said Alex Blagirev, Deputy CEO of Sensorium. The membership comes on the back of the recent launch of Wakatta, an NFT-focused blockchain developed by Sensorium DLT. Wakatta has become one of the first platforms to offer a new range of innovative NFTs that are upgradable, time-limited, and non-hashed. Each of these token classes was designed to drive digital impact across both digital and real-life environments, in particular in the entertainment industry. "Looking at just how diverse and inclusive BGA's membership is, it's clear that we can benefit greatly from sharing knowledge, collaborating and developing new models for NFTs in particular. This is the type of open forum that will shape the next generation of blockchain", added Blagirev. BGA membership has more than doubled this year alone, and members include developers, NFT marketplaces, gaming partners, including leading blockchain experts currently on the alliance's board like BITKRAFT's Piers Kicks, The Sandbox co-founder Sebastien Borget and Ubisoft's Nicolas Pouard.

Sensorium Galaxy Will Run On Wakatta Blockchain: Here’s Why
Hi everyone! We wanted to bring you up to speed on a major update. Today, we're excited to confirm that Sensorium Galaxy will be migrating to the Wakatta blockchain. This is a move that we've been planning for some time, but it’s now becoming a reality with the recent launch of Wakatta, an NFT and entertainment-focused blockchain. At the moment, the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse relies on Ethereum to power its in-platform currency, SENSO. This token will be at the center of the metaverse's virtual economy once it is launched in the coming months, and will be used to mint NFTs, support transactions and exchanges, unlock experiences, tickets and events, among other functionalities. We developed SENSO to ensure that Sensorium Galaxy has a thriving and fair economy, where users can expect transparency and reliability at all times. But looking at how the crypto market has evolved this past year, it became clear that the rapid increase in ETH prices (and other problems associated with Ethereum like congestion), would affect our mission of building a welcoming metaverse. That is why we focused on building a solution that would better fit the needs of an entertainment-based platform like Sensorium Galaxy.
Sensorium App Is Here: Join The Beta Test
The wait was long, but it’s finally here. Today, we’re excited to introduce the beta version of the Sensorium App — a mobile application that empowers you with advanced AI and AR tools to create intelligent virtual beings capable of elevating your social life. Since its inception, Sensorium Galaxy has been focused on developing an inclusive metaverse that leaves no one behind when it comes to platform accessibility. The Sensorium App is a first step in building a cross-platform, highly immersive, entertainment-filled alternate universe. Following our beta test stage, we will be adding new features to the Sensorium App, turning it into a true mobile gateway to our soon-to-come metaverse. “We think of the Sensorium App as a toolkit that will enhance the digital experiences of Sensorium Galaxy participants and give everyone an opportunity to get creative with artificial intelligence in a super intuitive and very amusing way. With a single app, anyone can start building autonomous virtual beings with whom it’s possible to chat on literally any topic and hang out anytime. Sensorium App opens a new chapter in our social lives,” explains Daniil Solopov, Sensorium Mobile Product Director. From a technological standpoint, Sensorium’s Chief Technology Officer Sergey Drozdkov highlights the synergy achieved by combining Google’s UI toolkit Flutter with Unity’s endless creative possibilities. “Our application leverages bleeding-edge technologies to unleash the metaverse experience of Sensorium Galaxy on your phone. This is achieved through two key technological assets - artificial intelligence and augmented reality. AI enables smart, immersive, and human-like exchanges, while AR brings together the best out of the real world and the immense opportunities of virtual settings. By combining both, we got the Sensorium App. Our application was developed on top of leading cross-platform frameworks, which translates into a seamless experience on both Android and iOS.”
