Solarity explained.

In the abstract of our whitepaper we state the following:

“Solarity plans to be the global go-to vr metaverse for developers, users, entrepreneurs and advertisers.
We believe that the fourth industrial revolution has started the attention economy, economy in which the preferability of a user to spend his time using your services is the most important factor of success. Solarity wants to provide the best-experience users aggregator metaverse by effectively bringing the perception of reality to the decentralized world using distributed cloud computing services and vr spaces maintaining the highest privacy & cybersecurity standards by using solana as the backend to enable solana’s ecosystem to onboard new participants at a much faster pace while also providing an high density plateau of spectators for solana’s native protocols to showcase why their service is better than the status quo’s one.”

Vision:

We want Solarity to be the ultimate metaverse experience provider, the pineal gland connecting our res cogitans: Solana, a blockchain where truth is defined by code; and our res extensa: anything a developer can imagine (and actually code).

Any static body resists the forces that are trying to make it move because of dry friction, Solarity is nothing different from that, It’s an ambitious project that requires an initial force stronger than the one when the ecosystem is set in motion.

  • Virtual cities, parks, mountains or beach places
  • Virtual reality decentralized casinos for provably fair betting or entertainment
  • Virtual decentralized banks with real or ai customer care
  • Virtual shopping experiences and decentralized e-commerce
  • Virtual concerts
  • Nft-art museum like exhibitions
  • Virtual reality zoom-like p2p applications. Private, secure & authentic (signing with pvt keys for id)
  • Private virtual parties
  • Virtual fitness experiences
  • Virtual educational scientific experiences (this use-case is highly underrated)
  • Virtual bars
  • Virtual-reality powered social networks
  • Virtual social trading platform

The compounding of all these virtually simulated realities interacting with each other, obtaining an incredibly powerful community and network effect.

A distant guiding pole star:

Building this amazing community would make it easy to eventually build the ultimate VR standalone headset that receives the livestreamed input from Solarity’s cloud computing distributed network, enabling for lightweight and cheap to build VR headsets, the perfect solution to scale VR headsets, developed and patented by the Solarity DAO, monetizing the project through NFT authentication of the headset.

(The difficult part is growing this community, not building a piece of plastic with an RFID linked to a smart-contract)

We believe there are 6 major driving forces that make the idea behind Solarity inevitable:

  • Renewable energy means that there’s energy lost due to the lack of an energy storing system(hydrogen is far from being widely adopted). This could be the incentive to mine (provide computation to the network) on Solarity rather than lose the excess energy forever.
  • The proof of stake revolution will offload a lot of GPUs/CPUs used to provide security to major protocols (most notably Ehereum) to other lucrative applications (maybe mining on Solarity)
  • The global average internet connection speed will always be greater than that of yesterday.
  • There’s excess liquidity in major defi protocols treasuries that venturing in an idea such as Solarity won’t sound that crazy as it would have 4 years ago.
  • Virtual reality is almost ready for mass adoption. (https://techstory.in/unity-ceo-predicts-ar-vr-headsets/)
  • There’s a lot of anonymous multimillionaire memes on crypto twitter that want a place to anonymously and virtually have fun.

We offer the ability to kickstart a positive loop in the digitalization of the world by incentivizing the acquisition of high-end computer specs and to be lent on Solarity when not in use. This is computation-sharing, thanks to Solana.
The largest, most powerful and reliable distributed computation network.

How is something like Solarity useful?

The more the world is interconnected, the more there’s value in the largest networks, with Solarity we offer the best incentives for users to join the ecosystem. We can be cool as anyone else and also provide cloud computed high end experience of the best contents around.

If Solarity was to become a killer-app, twitter would be flooded with Solarity content and so would Twitch & Youtube and maybe even Tiktok. Our mission is to make the best possible platform for users to spend their time onto. It has to be loved by anyone that tried it before we spend a single penny on advertisements. “Build it and they will come”.

Funding a DAO registered and operating on Solarity would be the easiest thing, enabling for ventures to invest in DAOs with the highest industry-standard security guarantees on treasury management.

All the DAOs operating on Solarity would compound their network effects with each other building a large community relatively quickly.

Solarity could easily finance itself using discrete non-invasive advertisements inside the virtual world like billboards and tv ads.

Solarity could even bring the creative industry to the ecosystem because cloud computed VR experiences could be the next movie-tickets.

At its core Solarity will be the leading provider of virtual experiences and the largest meta-community.

How is solarity profitable?

Solarity receives fees from tenants* revenues (likely 0.3%) and uses these fees to pay for a cloud computing network to serve users. Solarity also receives fees from advertising deals on the network (likely 3%).

The killer app would be a decentralized pseudonymous VR casino for twitter wassies to meet with each other and gamble through provably fair games and have fun, cause that’s what they do, while doing so they would also help the Solarity ecosystem to grow even further and give us a revenue stream to fund the development of the platform.

Solarity’s architecture:

Solarity is both Solana’s decentraland and Solana’s golem if you want an easy to understand comparison. There’s virtual land, the metaverse’s information and deterministic engine (Solarity’s land and its programs running on Solana) , and, there’s the metaverse’s manifestation, the cloud computed experience livestreamed on the user’s browser.

Possibilities enabled:

Let’s assume developers are served with a cloud computing platform, decentralized storage (IPFS or Filecoin) and a DAOs infrastructure to be able to easily form and manage shared economic value through smart contracts and governance tokens.

This enables for the next era of video games: Magnificent VR creator-centric free-to-play games with direct programmable payments to the creator/team.

There’s no app store that wants fees from you, you’re entirely in control of your game thanks to the non-invasive ad placement inside the world (people reached with the ad are publicly available to everyone (Blockchain Data + Trigger (Spectators +=1) when ad is seen)

  • Developers now no longer have to worry about hardware requirements and can make more beautiful games.
  • Solarity offers new marketing tools to explore new business models

With a blockchain economy native to their game, developers effortlessly have access to:

  • nano-payments
  • players in-game ownership
  • transparency
  • certified authenticity

All of the above provide an organic token based economy whose base unit is $SOL in Solarity.

Proposition:

We want to unite the entirety of the ecosystem on a project that would benefit everyone and we want this project to be community owned.

Mission:

Provide the best & easiest metaverse experience to onboard billions of people to the Solana ecosystem combining cloud computed virtual realities and browser-wallets to sign in as user credentials, while being completely self-sustainable, through advertised virtual events, virtual billboards and virtual businesses deals.

And provide to all of Solana ecosystem’s users and creators an easy way to access the virtual reality technologies.

Users are captured by applications that offer them the best time possible and the best incentives to use their platform. Solarity wants to develop the ultimate user aggregator, a metaverse, a social network, a game.

A sandbox creation tool for virtual enterprises.

Passion:

We want the virtual reality that we always dreamt of to come true. We wanna get there by providing the best tools and the most powerful computation to developers

(Dream of a standalone VR headset that can run Crysis…)(hope someone gets the joke)

By creating this virtual reality platform we plan to unify the Solana ecosystem and many users across the world being the leading platform of the VR revolution.

By using Solarity, the Solana community & leading figures would be able to endorse the best protocols for certain tasks inside the ecosystem to protect users from fraudulent actors.

The possibilities that Solarity enables in terms of adoption and innovation would truly be infinite; developer’s imagination would be the limit.

Execution:

  • Publish whitepaper
  • Gather social exposure in the Solana & crypto-twitter community
  • Ask for ecosystem growth grant
  • Use grant to create:
    Solarity’s DAO and easy management platform (proposal submission and voting)
    VR standalone application demo (blockchain agnostic)
    Kickstart Solarity (blockchain backend connected to VR
    Demo to explore possibilities enabled by VR assets registered on Solana)
  • Launch Solarity (Begin the token airdrop schedule that will distribute 50M tokens to the first 1.3M addresses registered.
  • Plan seed round, raising capital by offering Solarity’s DAO governance tokens. The money raised by this seed will be deposited in the DAOs treasury and will be controlled by seed participants through the newly acquired governance tokens. This way we guarantee that Solarity is a solid & serious project.

Use raised money to:

  • Develop Solvegas* on top of Solarity to be able to constantly make
    money on fees to fund further developments
  • Research & develop distributed cloud computing platform
    And offer it through Solarity’s client.
  • Develop an SDK and use a lot of the funds raised to plan a
    Solarity hackaton for people to develop their own tenant app using our noob-friendly SDK. (that doesn’t require code)
  • Civic for identity
  • Serum for any kind of conversion in transactions or microtransactions
  • Audius for VR concerts & official metaverse’s audio provider & musical label
  • Media network to be the official metaverse’s media provider
  • Metaplex & Sollectify to offer easy to set-up virtual stores and decentralized VR e-commerce.
  • FTX foundation for charity donations and TSM live virtual e-sports events. (imagine being able to observe league of legends match from inside the arena like a rally competition using VR)
  • Many more partnerships, everyone has a plan for VR implementation

Plan first public transparent auction of verse tokens

  • Develop & register a standalone portable and lightweight VR headset powered by the Solarity cloud computing network that only needs fast internet connection to work effectively launching the mainstream VR to onboard billions of users following the Prusa open-source strategy:
    Free patent, only nft certified headsets are Solarity approved, the others just add users to the network.
  • Once Solarity has reached this step, revenues are distributed to verse token holders and 10% of the revenues go to FTX charity foundation
    (thanks to a really high level of automation we can donate 10% of all revenues)

* (Killer app, decentralized VR casino & betting platform, we need to have a stream of revenue and 0.3% fees on decentralized bets of any kind could be the winning move)

RISK ASSERTION

  • Not being able to launch the DAO
  • Not being able to raise capital at 1st seed
  • Not being able to develop a cloud computing backbone
  • Having the right incentives
  • Having the right guarantees over DAO’s treasury management
  • Have a vast, deep and quality network to source for the brightest minds and the right amount of capital.

(we need help from the Solana community for this task)

Competitors:

The first two projects have talents but lack vision and compounded network effect.

Decentraland lacks some fundamental crypto-economic systems incentive engineering:

The VERSE token is valuable both to VC (the holders that stake the most in the first 2 years will be the ones receiving the tokens minted from the 2nd year), Businesses (Solarity provides an incredible service for almost free, setting low fees on their revenues) and Users (They get airdrops from Solarity partners).

Any generic holder is also incentivized since the network’s revenue will be distributed to token holders once the development is complete.

Every single one of the projects above lacks the magnet-effect that the coolest of communities, insanely cheap fees, insanely fast transactions and cloud computing will give to Solarity (and to Solana subsequently)

In the next article we’ll walkthrough Solarity’s Tokenomics.
