DigiCorp Update - November 2022 - The paradox of governance in a decentralized world….

DigiCorp Labs is developing new Web3-based solutions for the Enterprise world. These new manageable enterprise solutions are built on top of the open source blockchain, DigiByte, with a layer for manageable Enterprise solutions. “Manageable” here, means that the solutions can be supported professionally, based upon conditional Service Level Agreements (SLAs). In fact, the challenge is to use open and decentralized solutions such as blockchain, smart contracts and (utility) tokens in the very regulated world of enterprise corporations. This contradiction or paradox is a challenge that we at DigiCorp Labs think we can solve, but it also asks for new, innovative thinking and governance developments.

Governance relates to the decision-making processes within an organization. How is the hierarchy of decisions structured, who is responsible, how are major decisions taken and implemented, and how is authority vested? Those questions have not only to be implemented in an organization's operational system, but the decentralized solution should also comply with these governance models up front. This is the challenge that DigiCorp Labs took on when we started developing Enterprise grade solutions on open-source blockchain infrastructures.

Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Every company is different, each governance model is situational, and its viability largely depends on a specific set of circumstances. While securing sovereign identities and creating passwordless authentication for employees, the company also needs a central, vested governance model with supportive dashboards. These models must be centered around a set of qualities: integrity, transparency, collaboration and proven performance. So, our decentralized authentication app has to be supported by a central platform that is not only manageable and sustainable, but complies with a range of potential governance needs.

Whatever solution we build - from p2p video conferencing as part of our suite of communication tools, to smart layers, entering a digital environment always requires identification. Therefore, our first focus is on authentication in the most secure way. We used the decentralized authentication functionality of the existing Antum application, but as mentioned in our previous blog, it wasn’t future-proof for enterprise-grade Web3 authentication. Apart from more modern development languages for decentralized authentication, a balanced, centralized management and dashboard functionality was also required. The way we solved this paradox was with the most important IP that we developed last year.

Blockchain has redefined the classic notion of governance and has shaken the very foundations upon which the “old world” of enterprise is built. Blockchain’s main value proposition is decentralization — eliminating gatekeepers or middle-men in transactions to reduce costs, and enabling parties to directly transact with each other; e.g., via smart contracts. On a large scale, this effectively means the removal of centers of authority from whom enterprises request a central governance model. Instead, we are providing these enterprises with the ability to carry out important decisions with all the required dashboard functionality to support, and sovereign employee authority is distributed. The benefit of a central governance model (assuming that a responsible and knowledgeable authority is in charge) is related to the monopoly over decision making. Typically, a central authority will possess all the relevant information to make informed decisions which serve the enterprise’s best interest.

We are now in the beta-testing phase: both decentralized (which looks good) and on a central platform (this is ongoing). Before we start with the pre-agreed Proof of Concept for launch with potential customers, we need to have formally finalized our dual beta-testing. This is planned to be finalized at the end of 2022, with a formal launch scheduled for 2023, to assure our customers have enough proof of quality to install the decentralized apps on their employees’ mobile devices, and to install the central platform for IT admins. Then, the real challenge begins: we need to build out - in full cooperation with the customer - a governance model for the new Web3 environment, in their existing Web2-based infrastructures and experiences.

DigiCorp Labs took on the unique challenge of developing a radical new application on a decentralized, open source blockchain, including the decentral use of sovereign identity-based, passwordless authentication methods in combination with high grade, enterprise-based requirements of serviceability and governance. Our choice to start the journey with future-proof development languages forced us to fully re-develop and rewrite the older, proven Antum solution. We knew in advance that this decision would require more time and testing, but that it would also give us a head start on all other potential initiatives in the market. Looking back, we are glad we took this radical decision and accepted the roller-coaster experience that was to come.

What is 'the Mirror World'

The mirror world is not the same as the Metaverse. It is a representation — the mirror image — of the real world seen in a 'digital mirror.' There we see 'Digital Twins' as the relevant objects, which not only possess information about themselves, but also contextual information, such as where they come from, what data they contain, what their important sources of information are and which other objects are important to them. A good example of a digital mirror world is Google Earth. Added digital information that is projected onto our facial image with augmented reality glasses or the heads-up display.

The term mirror world was popularized by Yale computer scientist David Gelernter. It not only reflects what something looks like, but also includes the context, meaning and function of the object, such as how we can interact with it, possibly manipulate it and experience its use as we would in the real world.

The 'world wide web' was the first digital technology platform that digitized both data and information and subjected its 'knowledge' to the power of algorithms. It was soon dominated by major innovative tech players such as Google, Apple and Microsoft. The second digital platform was social media, like Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Snapchat, which brought people together and allowed them to communicate.

Digitally Immersed

With the first platforms, we were still looking 'from the outside in.' With the Metaverse — the third digital platform — you, as a participant, will be in the middle of the digital world, an 'immersive experience' where you experience virtual reality as if it were real. The Metaverse began in the gaming world with VR headsets used to create a virtual world. In the real world, augmented headsets, as well as holograms, will visibly create a virtual environment that surrounds us. In this way, even deceased stars like Elvis can perform live concerts again.

Companies like Roblox. Sandbox, Meta, Decentralland, Blocktopia, etc. are currently important players in that 'virtual space.' But many more of these virtual worlds ( galaxies, in Metaverse terms) will emerge. We are still in the early stages and seeing the first wave of these pioneers. We know from the previous internet bubble that only the second wave of companies will reap the benefits of all the pioneers, such as Yahoo, Hives, MSN, MySpace and AOL. These first internet players have disappeared or have completely faded into the background.

A fiction and a non-fiction world

The Metaverse as a gaming platform is the 'fictional appearance' that includes virtual avatars and objects. But there is also a 'non-fiction appearance,' which reflects the real world as a digital mirror (the Mirror World). Think about personal digital identities and 'digital twins' like products and factories. CAD/CAM technology builds virtual products and workshops that reflect the real world digitally, Meanwhile, new developments based on the roll-out of decentralized Web 3.0 infrastructure and Web3 platforms equipped with token and blockchain technologies provide methods for administration, settlement and accounting, just like we capture, settle and record real physical assets in an accounting system.

These new platforms will further digitize the rest of the world. Objects and locations will be 'machine readable' by the power of algorithms. Like their predecessors, these new platforms will unleash a new explosion of wealth for businesses and the users in their ecosystem, Thanks to millions of new ideas — as well as problems and challenges — that were not possible before machines could see, recognize and read the physical world.

The blue hour (l'heure bleue)

This moment of this “New Digital Dawn” is special because we are now experiencing the 'blue hour,' that short, unique moment just before the sun appears above the horizon, the first twilight that offers us the unique opportunity to see this new world before it is really there, the new day when physical and digital merge, where something is only real if it exists in both the physical and the digital world. The third platform will merge with our physical world in such a way that they are seemingly one and create an absolutely new experience for human beings, the first time in human history that we can mimic the reality of the physical world in the digital world. So make a physical appearance from that digital world again and experience it as a physical experience.

This compelling event is happening right before our eyes. We are all fellow spectators to this. If you see it, it will spark your creativity and enhance our productivity in the same way as cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology and create totally new real-life use cases.

We’ll see the moment that a digital life exists in combination with digitally added intelligence. This new hybrid consciousness is tremendously exciting but hard to imagine. It creates the ability to have consciousness in a digital world, with all the "fun and fears" that science fiction writers have created in their novels and movies. Now there is actually a 'new physical experience' in an 'almost real world' that was originally conceived and modeled in the digital world.

More and more companies are venturing into the Mirror World / Enterprise Metaverse, creating strategy and deploying digital twins.
DigiCorp Labs' blockchain approach can help you with building and tooling to have this strategy in place.

DigiCorp Update - October 2022 - DigiThree Labs, ahead of the curve….

Dear Metanauts,

As we’ve already mentioned, this month is “Rocktober” and a special month for DigiCorp Labs, DigiThree Labs and our upcoming first business-to-business solution, DGMV-iD. 

DigiThree Labs, the enterprise-focused arm of DigiCorp Labs, has gained significant recognition of late, being held up as a potential gamechanger. At the European Metaverse Awards, which will be held on 27 October in Berlin, DigiCorp Labs has been shortlisted for ‘Most-Exciting Startup’ and DigiThree Labs has been shortlisted for the ‘Top B2B or Industrial Initiative’. The latter category is especially important, because this is exactly what sets DigiCorp Labs apart in the turbulent blockchain & crypto landscape; offering real world use cases and meeting the demand for trustless and decentralized technology.

With our Business-2-Business approach, we are informing companies about the great potential and possibilities of Web3 and the Metaverse. DigiThree Labs is able to provide business benefits and can create value that has an impact on the day-to-day business operations and digital safety of a company. 

To be successful at this stage of our company development, we want to have a push-and-pull sales strategy in place. With the appointment of Andreas Hartl, we have an experienced and seasoned professional on board, and his knowledge will help us accelerate our strategy to attract the right partners. Partners and System Integrators are discovering the potential of Web3 and the Metaverse for new revenue streams, and the advantage of a partner-led strategy is that prominent partners are already engaged with major clients, governments and institutions. They have all the procedures, goodwill, and certifications in place for compliance with their standards, requirements and expectations. These partners have proven to be successful, and have the ability to participate in (public) tenders. With this approach, DigiThree Labs is ahead of the curve, and indeed, Andreas is already engaged in several potential partner conversations.

The prospective partners that DigiThree Labs will be focusing on, and which can be found in our extensive business networks, can be categorized as follows:

Supported by our ERP/CRM system and an additional Partner Management platform, we will optimize our channel with impressive automated features that will greatly help our partners to be flexible, efficient and effective. This will not only give DigiThree the possibility to improve, but it will provide us with the tools to monitor and act proactively to guide and support our partners as they gain knowledge and expand the addressable market.

If everyone is moving forward together, success takes care of itself.” - (Henry Ford)

By building a partner ecosystem, we are increasing our sales success rate and, ultimately, the need for the DGMV utility token.

As always, the community's support in showing love and spreading the word is appreciated during this amazing journey.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONSTANT SUPPORT!

DigiCorp, and the four hidden secrets 

all in this Metaverse blog:

The entrance of large companies into the Metaverse will help raise awareness that there’s something significant happening - that the way we interact with machines is about to change forever.

Facebook, for example,  changed its name to Meta Platforms. 

The move was a clear line in the sand. Beyond that line, the company wants to be known as a Metaverse company.

The move came hot on the heels of the Facebook Papers, a clear and documented history of the company ignoring the harm it was doing to users.

And so, Facebook’s move was met with a combination of tech fascination (countless articles trying to explain the Metaverse to casual readers) and abject horror.

We’re clearly at an inflection point. The Metaverse may take years to be fully realized, but we need to ask hard and serious questions today:

Maybe that was one of the benefits of Facebook making such a huge splash in the Metaverse: it forced the media to pay attention and ask questions about the potential downsides to this new shift in technology.

Wired was one of the few publications to place it in the broader context of ALL of Big Tech. It noted that the giants (from Microsoft to Niantic) have very little incentive to work together to create an interoperable Metaverse, and that the era of big silos is likely to continue.

Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook), which Mark Zuckerberg has vowed will eventually become a “metaverse company,” owns not only four of the top six social media platforms, but also Oculus, which manufactures VR hardware. What could sell VR headsets more effectively than the notion that everybody will need one to access the internet of the future—especially if that same internet is Meta’s own?

For Microsoft, the metaverse is a sci-fi skin over its aggregation of platforms and products, which include its operating system (Windows), servers (Azure), comms network (Teams), hardware (HoloLens), entertainment hub (Xbox), social network (LinkedIn), and IP (Minecraft).

Right now, the metaverse lives in the space between these total service environments and their owners’ corporate blogs. It’s an invitation to work under, not with, tech giants’ services.

If Big Tech’s unchecked growth continues, there will be multiple metaverses, if there are any at all. Each will be interoperable under one tech giant’s umbrella, the same way Apple is both a walled garden and a convenient, habitable terrarium for its dedicated consumers. Users love the seamlessness of Apple’s proprietary operating system, the ubiquity of iMessage. And Apple, presumably, loves the 30 percent commission it can charge those developers who sell apps in iOS through its App Store.

Hidden Secret #1 of All This Metaverse Talk:

Developers Rule

In a neat act of corporate jiu jitsu, Meta Platforms made it seem like it was contradicting itself. And the media lapped it up.

But after following Zuckerberg’s effusive keynote address, which was filled with all sorts of nifty concept videos of how fun the Metaverse will be, one of his lieutenants had a different take.

John Carmack, who is renowned in tech circles for his work in gaming (Doom) and VR, seemed to throw cold water on Zuckerberg’s vision. As reported by Fortune (and others):

"I want it to exist, but I have pretty good reasons to believe that setting out to build the metaverse is not actually the best way to wind up with the metaverse," Carmack, who has been talking up the metaverse concept since the 1990s, said. The problem, he explained, is that the concept is a "honeypot trap for architecture astronauts…a class of programmers or designers that want to only look at things from the very highest levels." Such people don't want to talk about "any of the nuts and bolts or details," he complained.

Did the media forget that Carmack works AT Meta? Did they really ignore the fact that Zuckerberg’s rules Facebook (er, Meta) with an iron fist?

Carmack actually perfectly set up the Meta Platforms narrative, because the company is in desperate need of developers.

This is one of the reasons so many big companies are announcing Metaverse plans now: to attract developers (and investment, either through advertising or goosed-up stock prices).

Carmack’s message was perfectly crafted to appeal to the developers who scorn “big picture” thinking. They just want to play with cool stuff. 

So, while Zuckberg was appealing to the media, regulators, and your mom…Carmack was simply packaging up the same message but in a more granular way.

But the takeaway from his message is still important:

Namely, the Metaverse hasn’t been built yet. And we need to get down to the nuts and bolts of how it will work before it actually happens.

Hidden Secret #2:

Web3 Communities Are Way Ahead of You, Meta

Now, this won’t be a huge surprise to those of you who already hold a MetaMask full of NFTs, or who are a Friend with Benefits.

But if all you read is the mainstream media, you’d think that only Meta, Microsoft, or Epic Games has the capacity to build the Metaverse.

And so the secret, at least on Main Street?

Sure, there’s a lot of work left to do for the Metaverse to fully emerge. And decentralized communities, powered by DAOs, tokens, NFTs and just pure, unbridled creativity are building it.

But let’s unpack this a bit further. And let’s think about what Carmack said:

“The problem, he explained, is that the concept is a "honeypot trap for architecture astronauts…a class of programmers or designers that want to only look at things from the very highest levels." Such people don't want to talk about "any of the nuts and bolts or details," he complained.”

With web3, however….the devil is IN the details. And even more importantly, those details aren’t obfuscated in a large monolithic software package (like the Unreal game engine, say, or walled away on an Azure compute cloud somewhere).

The hidden secret, therefore, isn’t just that web3 communities are already building the Metaverse; it’s that they’re doing so in transparent ways. They’re learning from each other, and they’re working in a very detailed way - from the bottom up. 

In other words, web3 is already living what Carmack is evangelizing: paying attention to the nuts and bolts.

Hidden Secret #3:

There’s More to NFTs Than Just Art

It’s clear by now that NFTs are more than just ways to verify ownership of digital art. We’re now seeing deep innovation, where avatars have utility and form the backbone of value exchange and community.

But let’s step back for a minute and look solely at the visuals of NFTs. Because there’s something intriguing going on.

Here are two ‘visions’ for our future in this emerging spatial technology we call the Metaverse:

First, Zuckberg on a surfboard:

And next, a Beeple:

The first is…sterile. Bland. The second has a vibrant energy. It’s provocative and challenging.

Neither one ‘exists’ in the Metaverse yet. Meta Platforms showed off …well, it was vaporware mostly. Concept videos.

But so is a Beeple. Or a Bored Ape.

This difference, even if we only look at it aesthetically, is profound - and it reminds us that technology is most often first adapted by those who want to subvert the status quo.

The printing press was primarily used for pamphlets. It gave a voice to those who didn’t previously have one, and it was used by pamphleteers to subvert traditional hierarchies.

Meta Platforms wants to deliver experiences TO us. Web3, on the other hand, is purpose-built to subvert hierarchies. Therefore, it’s creating its own language, its own visual shorthand. 

So, the third secret is that we are seeing the early signs of a creative revolution, one that stands in stark contrast to Big Tech’s attempt to deliver “Experiences” (which mostly consist of conference rooms and dull-looking concept videos).

Hidden Secret #4: The Tent Is Large

How often do you hear Big Tech invite others into their tent? 

You’re either on the inside, the outside, or you’re a user. 

Web3 takes a different approach: the tent is large, we’re all building the future together, and there’s very little distinction between those who are building and those who are “users.” 

In fact, the term “users” is a legacy. You can see it in coverage of the emergence of blockchain-based play-to-earn games like Axie Infinity. The legacy way to phrase this would be:

Users on Axie Infinity have earned XX billions playing the game.

But they’re not users. They are people who have ownership in the game. They can increase their stake by playing, and yes: they can convert that stake into very real-world dollars.

Play-to-earn is an exciting development, but it isn’t exclusive to games. It’s an upending of all of our old models.

And so, the fourth secret is that while Big Tech wants to deliver Experiences (with a capital E) and monetize your participation, web3 turns the idea of ownership on its head. This has the potential to unleash value for millions (or billions) of people.

Building Bridges

So, four secrets:

  1. Winning the hearts of developers will be key to realizing a vision for the Metaverse
  2. Web3 communities are already creating value from the ground up
  3. This value includes forms of creativity that will contribute to a “language” for the Metaverse that will stand in counterpoint to the sterile “Experiences” of Big Tech
  4. Because the web3 tent is large, it has the chance to even take on the 10,000 person ‘factory’ being put together by Meta (and all the billions being invested)

These four secrets also lie at the heart of the DigiCorp vision for the Metaverse:

And, in bringing these benefits to more people, we will build two key bridges:

Bridge One: Bridge the TOOLS From decentralized technologies  like provided by DigiByte and Threefold to Larger Communities.

In particular, we think that quantum-safe storage provides a critical bridge to larger enterprises. By solving an extremely difficult problem, we can attract new people and organizations to the web3 ethos.

The Metaverse will add an exponential storage challenge to our current computing paradigm, because we won’t just be storing photos or schematics - we’ll be storing ALL of your content in 3D. 

Whether a digital mirror of a factory floor or your full catalog of widgets, the physical world will be converted to having a 3D equivalent.

That’s a lot of storage - and a lot of danger.

By building quantum-safe, scalable storage solutions, we can help organizations to solve their storage problems and, in the process, build a bridge from web3/crypto into larger domains. 

Bridge Two: Bridge an Understanding of Value and Responsibility

And this is perhaps our deepest mission: because it’s about valuing humanity itself.

A growing number of people don't trust centralized platforms. We as DigiCorp believe privacy should be a human right, and people should have the choice.

But the solution to this goes beyond creating a sovereign identity for the Metaverse. It extends to helping communities and individuals to understand the responsibility that comes with taking back control of our identity.

It means providing tools so that people can innovate. It means exploring the frontiers of how individuals will enter into Metaverse spaces and how they will interact with each other.

What will the “digital handshake” of the future look like? What will it look like to exchange permissions? What happens when ‘trust’ is codified and transparent? How will we deal with bad actors? How will this connect to issues related to safety or equal access?

****

The battle for the Metaverse is now being fought in earnest. 

But we don’t need to wait for Big Tech to deliver us “Experiences” from the mountaintop. Whether you’re an individual or an enterprise, you can participate in its creation today - focused on the nuts and bolts, joining innovative communities, and taking advantage of solutions that will solve immediate problems, while advancing a more human-centric vision for the Metaverse.

DigiCorp update - September 2022

Dear Metanauts,

We’ve been continuing to work on improvements over the summer months, laying the foundation for a secure and decentralized metaverse future.

Antum is a stable platform, but with the feedback and knowledge we gained from the field (POCs), we decided several months ago to build and develop the DGMV-ID suite with a totally new architecture.

This was a bold decision, but the requirements for Web3 in an enterprise environment mean that we need a different approach to stand out of the crowd. The development team has done a tremendous job working on the solution.

We’re glad to share that we’re entered an exciting stage with the DGMV-ID alpha release, which also means that we can start planning the beta release with our early adopter customers.

But what are the differences between alpha release vs beta release? To find out more, read the rest of this blog. Let’s get started!

Alpha Testing:

Alpha testing is one type of acceptance testing that is performed to discover all the potential issues and bugs before releasing the final product to clients. This test is executed by internal employees of the company, with the core intention of listing the tasks that a normal/regular user would perform on the app, then testing them.

In simple terms, it is called alpha testing because it is performed near the end of the development of the software, before beta testing. The major focus of this testing is mimicking real-time users, using black box and white box testing techniques.

Beta Testing:

In contrast, Beta testing is performed by customers in a real-world environment. It is also called external User Acceptance Testing, and it is performed directly before a product launch. In this scenario, direct feedback from users can be a goldmine for developers, because beta testing helps the team to test the product in a customer environment, according to the Scope Of Work form our POCs.

Note that beta version is enabled for a limited number of customers in order to drive insightful feedback on the product quality. Moreover, a hybrid security testing playbook (pentesting and bug bounty) is also in place during the beta testing phase.

Beta testing ensures that the team won’t suffer massive product failures by helping to improve product quality through customer validation.

So, the key differences between alpha testing and beta testing are:

  1. On the one hand, alpha testing is performed by testers within the organization, where beta testing is performed by the end-users.
  2. Aspects like reliability and security testing are performed in detail in alpha testing, whereas reliability, security, and robustness are tested during beta testing.
  3. Alpha testing is performed at the developer’s or tester’s site, while beta testing takes place at the client’s or user’s location.

But both alpha and beta testing are extremely important in a product development life cycle.

We are proud to announce that we will be introducing our DGMV-ID alpha release to visitors during the TechEx expo on September 20th and September 21st. But that’s not all - we will also be showcasing DigiThree Labs, which will be our outlet to the enterprise world. Being a partner-led organization, DigiThree will offer professional enterprise services and consultancy to our partners, and to raise awareness among the professional enterprise community, we have started a LinkedIn campaign.

Ultimately, this provides usage of the DGMV utility token.

Our next Community AMA will be the 28th of September, in our Telegram channel.
More details will follow.

Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, where we’ll be broadcasting highlights of the TechEx expo experience!

Digicorp and the Metaverse: A Vision of the Future

Right now, it seems like everyone is rushing to build the Metaverse.
At Digicorp, we applaud this trend as it proves that we’re not alone in recognizing this as the next major shift in computing.
But we also think it’s time to take a moment to look further ahead, to understand what the Metaverse might actually mean, how it might emerge in more unexpected ways, and to recognize that this isn’t simply a new technology, but a significant shift in culture and society.

Looking beyond today’s headlines helps us to: 

•        Understand that today’s Metaverse experiments are only the first steps in creating a whole new universe. We are in the very early stages of the development of the Metaverse. It will take years (most experts expect a 10-year timeframe or longer) to fully realize its potential. It is important to build solutions, products, and services with an eye on what will be possible tomorrow, rather than solely focusing on today.

•        Identify the long-term opportunity for enterprise. While it is never possible to fully future-proof a company, we can predict scenarios, which can help identify immediate opportunities for prototypes and for building the necessary infrastructure to rapidly adapt to future change.

•        Understand the promise (and the dangers) for humanity. We believe that the Metaverse is far more than just a new way to have fun or play games. It will fundamentally reshape how we interact with machines, and it will represent the convergence of the physical and digital worlds. This creates both promise (for example, extending economic opportunities to everyone) and danger (the threat of digital surveillance apparatus). 

•        Inspire new ways to think about the future. None of us are working alone. There is no single company who will build or dominate the Metaverse. We can each have a voice in the shaping of what’s to come. No one can perfectly predict how it will all turn out - but we can create shared reference points and begin to collaborate together.


This last point is perhaps the closest to the heart of the Digicorp vision. By sharing our own thoughts and dreams for the future, we are inviting everyone to participate. By creating tools, products and services in the service of that vision, we dream of helping a million projects and more to grow and flourish.

The Metaverse Today

Whether large legacy companies or innovative web3 communities, there are hundreds of thousands of ongoing Metaverse projects:

•        NFTs are adding new utility, extensions, airdrops, and economic models. We are looking at a preview of a digital world in which ownership, trading of goods, and economic value are inbuilt. On today’s Internet, it is mostly the large data silos that make money from digital content. But tomorrow, we will be able to allocate capital and attach ownership and history to digital assets. 

•          Play-to-earn is opening up new opportunities for diverse participation in the digital economy. Axie Infinity proved to be a lifeline for thousands of people during the pandemic by allowing them to earn money playing games when other ways of earning money became difficult. But even play-to-earn is in its early stages, and we expect to see this model bleed into other forms of economic activity outside of games.

•         Today’s mega-corps aren’t excluded from this opportunity, either. Facebook has recognized both the opportunity and the threat of the Metaverse. It intends to fully transition from being a social media to a Metaverse company within 5 years. As one small part of its strategy, it has committed to hiring 10,000 people in Europe to help make this change. And Facebook is the most visible ‘corporate face’ among many legacy Internet companies all looking to embrace the Metaverse.

Near-Term Trends

The range of innovations emerging in the pre-Metaverse is staggering and it has only just begun. There are already indicators that the next wave of innovation is already upon us:

DAOs, cross-chain integration, and other crypto innovations will create successive waves of innovation. While NFTs are already generating significant trade, they are really only in their earliest stages in terms of their potential being fully utilized. Currently, their utility is being extended to include entire story worlds (and representation by Hollywood agents, as with the example of Bored Apes), and they are starting to underpin both online and offline value.

But next up will be increased fractional ownership models, innovative licensing schemes, and cross-over to DAOs, tokens and other crypto innovations. The sale of JPEGs as NFTs will very quickly come to be seen as the first shot across the bow. Soon, entire industries will have competition. What has happened with art is now shifting into fashion, music, and other markets.

‘Outside’ funding will continue to flood the space. Venture capital firms are playing an increasing role in bringing Metaverse projects to market. This is part of a broader realignment that started during the pandemic and was boosted by readily available/low interest capital, a shift towards more online activity during COVID lockdowns, and a clear sense of crypto FOMO (and perhaps a desire for an inflationary hedge). 

But it isn’t just VCs: as press about the Metaverse, NFTs, and cryptocurrencies continues to generate interest, we are witnessing many newcomers enter the market. These people, who would never have dreamed of having a crypto wallet, are now bidding on NFTs. 

Legacy companies are ‘all-in’ on the Metaverse and they have strong, publicly-stated ambitions. But this shift towards crypto is also playing out in more subtle ways. Mainstream media, brands and talent are showing clear interest in the space. It is an exciting time and a sign of a significant shift of capital, talent and attention to this next phase in computing.

At Digicorp, we believe that all these efforts are important experiments for the emerging Metaverse. We also believe that there’s more (a LOT more) to the story.

But first, we need to make sure we’re all on the same page when we talk about the Metaverse. And, of course, this means we need a rough definition of what it is.  

Defining the Metaverse: From Technology to Culture 

Let’s start with a few broad clarifications: 

There is only one Metaverse

Just like there is only one Internet, there is only one Metaverse. There is no argument about this among those with decades of academic and practical experience, or among those doing standards-based work in the field. 

But does it matter? We think it does, because there will be fault lines and tensions. The larger companies in the field (we’re looking at you, Facebook!) will want to advance their interests. Web3 will naturally create a counterpoint to more siloed efforts.

One of the reasons that thought leaders talk about THE Metaverse is to make clear that our shared end goal is singular: that there is no benefit to competing versions of the Metaverse, just as there would have been no benefit to competing versions of the Internet (sorry, AOL!). 

The Metaverse is primarily ‘spatial’

The Metaverse is emerging now because it has become easier to experience rich 3D content. Our phones can scan physical objects and turn them into 3D assets, most computers and mobile devices can now support rich 3D content because of advances in graphics and other chips, and the entire world is now being scanned for the purposes of mapping or gaming.

Today, we’re mostly building virtual worlds/games and metagalaxies.

Roblox or Decentraland may eventually be major destinations in the Metaverse. But today, they stand in isolation from each other. As such, they are technically defined as virtual worlds OR, if they contain a collection of worlds, they are technically defined as a metagalaxy.

The Metaverse is a system of systems

In the same way that the Internet is made up of discrete protocols and affordances, so will the Metaverse be. It will include systems for identity, storage, rendering, asset delivery, latency management and synchronization, etc.

[In our next post, we’ll explore a few of the systems we think are important and help you to understand where they fit into the larger technical road map for the Metaverse.] 

The Metaverse is device-agnostic

Again, much like you can see ‘the Web’ on a mobile phone or a desktop computer, you will be able to ‘enter the Metaverse’ using a tablet, while wearing a VR headset, or while walking down the street with a pair of Augmented Reality glasses.

The Metaverse will most likely emerge to be much like the ‘Web’: an open-source base with various proprietary and open modules built on top.

Hidden in this idea is another recognition: that the Metaverse IS the Internet. We are not going to build a whole new suite of technologies to replace some of the core protocols of the Internet. Instead, they will be built on top of, adapted, and extended.

The Metaverse is made possible (and is primarily defined) by interoperability

This is the true glue that holds the Metaverse together. Over the next decade, we will see massive innovation in everything from cryptocurrencies to DAOs, from the creation of mirror worlds to augmented reality glasses that we can wear all day, from the realism of games to the ability to play them via cloud streaming services. 

The Metaverse will create amazing experiences for consumers and will unlock deep potential for enterprise. But the truly explosive change will occur when these innovations become interoperable

Just think of today’s web: how many websites have you signed up for, how many times have you filled out your email for a new newsletter, and how easy is it for you to find the same list of friends when you move from Discord to Twitter to Slack? 

Now think of how difficult this must be for exchanging something like a 3D pair of shoes! The Metaverse will be realized as more and more of these disparate spatial experiences link together. In the Metaverse, you will be able to shift seamlessly between worlds. The idea is that the data you share as you move between environments will be done so by choice. And ideally, the shoes you bought in Roblox can be worn in Fortnite.

How will I know when the Metaverse has arrived?

It seems like a simple enough question. But, in general, the answer will be: “you won’t.” And this answer is a bit like a secret key. 

At Digicorp, we like to say: “you won’t need to go out and find the Metaverse, because it will come to you.” 

We will witness components of the Metaverse (like storage or sovereign identity systems) before we can see them working together in their entirety. 

An Enterprise Example

Let’s walk through what we mean. 

Let’s say you build a mirror version of your factory floor in digital form. You allow collaborators in from partner companies and your engineering team in Asia is able to log in and collaborate with supervisors in Europe.

One day, you find you can click on a doorway in this virtual factory and it immediately ‘teleports’ you to a virtual version of a part supplier’s warehouse. You can browse their catalog, make some quick annotations on a 3D model, chat with their sales team, then teleport right back. 

That is the Metaverse. It will come to YOU. One day, all our 3D experiences will start connecting.

Today? Not so much. We can’t pop from a session in Fortnite over to Minecraft with a click of a button. Instead, we need to log out and log back in to each experience.

Have a look at your mobile phone: imagine if, instead of all of those little icons, you were able to jump between ‘apps’ from a common interface.

But why does this matter? What’s the advantage in knowing that the Metaverse doesn’t have a launch date? Well, we think it has strategic value for a few reasons:

  1. The Metaverse is an emergent system of systems.

At Digicorp, we think that it is critical to understand this. The Metaverse will emerge slowly - the Web will become more three-dimensional, and worlds and games will slowly interconnect, but most importantly, the systems that make up the Metaverse are being developed NOW. 

  1. We will learn, before the Metaverse is fully realized, how to work, collaborate, create and innovate.

All of today’s early experiments are helping us to experience the potential of the Metaverse, even though we’re still a long way from it being ubiquitous.

  1. We need to build the subsystems of the Metaverse now, and not allow those systems to be dictated by powerful players.

For example, companies like Facebook, Epic or Niantic will have a vested interest in how identity is handled in the Metaverse, but we have an opportunity to avoid today’s giant data silos if we take progressive steps to build something better. 

The Metaverse: Beyond Concerts and Meetings 

If you conducted a survey of the Metaverse today, you might find it described as a set of experiences and innovations that are not yet connected. You would probably hear people point to: 

Eventually, all of these things will connect. They will be supported by: 

But the thing about the future is you can’t always predict what it will look like.

At DigiCorp we believe that much of what we can experience today will one day seem quaint! Much like the earliest websites, we will look back and see today’s pre-Metaverse utilities as just sketches of what was to come. 

Imagine… 

Sovereign identity

How can someone else “own” your identity? Well, today they do. Your identity on Facebook…is owned by Facebook. It’s the same for many of the other sites you visit or participate in. What new kinds of economic value will be created if we can take back control of our identities (and the data associated with it)?

A post-quantum world

What kinds of opportunities will arise when quantum computing finally arrives? And what will happen to all the data that we currently store (on the blockchain or elsewhere) that can be easily ‘cracked’ by quantum machines?

Semi-autonomous avatars

What happens when artificial intelligence can ‘fuse’ with our online personas? What happens if you can log in with your avatar…then just leave it there when you leave work? What if your avatar is smart enough to act on its own? What happens in an enterprise when we can help to automate some of our mundane daily tasks, allowing our avatars to negotiate, collect, trade or share on our behalf (in a safe and logical way?) 

The physical world, seamlessly fused with the digital

Imagine a future in which self-driving cars and a population wearing augmented reality glasses can scan the physical world in real time. What happens when there is a digital representation of a factory or retail store floor? A manager in Asia will be able to log in to a highly realistic Metaverse location and see what’s happening in the ‘real world’…and in real time. 

What happens when we can view data in three dimensions? Forget spreadsheets. Imagine being able to walk through a solar system of data, all of it intuitively presented and providing you with easy ways to take strategic action? 

A Metaverse with bad actors

And this, of course, is also important to recognize. If you think today’s data breaches cause problems, imagine when every aspect of your business is scanned and made ‘3D’. Whether you like it or not, companies will collaborate in the Metaverse. Everything will be scanned. Sensors will be everywhere. How do you protect yourself against the bad actors that will invariably arise? 

A new type of language

We don’t often talk about this, but at DigiCorp we believe that the Metaverse actually represents the final, deep-seated realization of the human impulse for spatial and visual content. We believe new forms of ‘language’ will emerge that we can’t even imagine yet, because spatial content represents the deepest level of meta-language. 

Talking to the machines

This is perhaps the most profound prospect for what lies ahead, because the Metaverse is emerging at about the same speed as the machines are becoming smarter than the human brain.

This may not be a coincidence. 

The Metaverse may represent something more than just a new way to interact online. Instead, it may very well represent the space in which we will finally meet a new sentient machine. 

The Next Steps in the Metaverse

There is incredible opportunity ahead but tremendous challenges that come with it. This is, perhaps, the most significant shift in computing that humanity will ever experience. It represents the final fusion of our physical and digital realities and it may bring us face-to-face with sentient machines. 

We hope you’ll join us in exploring this new frontier.

Whether you’re building early prototypes to prepare for the emerging Metaverse, or joining us as we imagine new scenarios for the future, we invite you to consider the promise (and danger) ahead, and join us on the road to the future.      

DigiCorp Update – June 2022

Dear Metanauts,

It might be crypto winter, but we can’t ignore the fact that the summer holidays are in sight. We’re forging on, continuing to focus on our product development and aim for the launch of our first products in Q3/Q4 this year.

We know the crypto markets are still having a hard time, and we can imagine that your patience as token holders is being tested. The tech companies that can withstand the pressure will be able to build our digital future and eventually, the time will come for true pioneers to shine. Bearing this in mind, we keep our focus on the longer term, which means building, developing, partnering and getting prepared for the launch and sales of our products in Q3/Q4, with true utility for the DGMV token.

The web is evolving without any doubt. Whether it’s Web 3, Web 5 or whatever it eventually becomes,  there is a great need for privacy, security and decentralization. At DigiCorp, we have anticipated this evolution of the web and we have the building blocks developed and ready to be deployed. But we think that ownership and control of our data and sovereign identity should be in the deployment of Web 3, not Web 5 as mentioned by Jack Dorsey.  Partners should be able to use these tools in their solutions, platforms or other environments. The immersive experiences that come with Metaverse platforms require the safe, secure presence of our online identity and our data, fully controlled by its owners.

Product and Technology Development

While we are working hard to finalize the development, testing and documentation for the authenticator and password manager, our Indian development team is working on our Metaverse Suite to empower data privacy and sovereignty through decentralized technologies. Our Metaverse Suite contains the tools that empower enterprises with P2P chat, quantum-safe decentralized storage, safe sharing of information, P2P video-chat, and secure browsing, specifically designed to secure everyday needs for enterprises, small businesses, organizations and governments, all with one secure blockchain-based login. This will solve a lot of security issues, because it will effectively eliminate intermediaries and permit direct communication between individuals, without jeopardizing data security or privacy.

It’s great to see customers excited to get started with our POCs when we speak to them about their expectations and compliance with industry-related protocols. The standards that need to be set for the enterprise environment mean that we have to pay an exceptionally high level of attention to the compliance, quality and security of products and processes, all of which come under the direct remit of our Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). We are proud to inform you that one of the POCs has been successfully deployed on the decentralized grid, and with this knowledge, we are able to provide a true alternative to current centralized storage providers.

Furthermore, we continue to look for talent to scale up our core team and ambassador & advisory board in roles such as technical enterprise product manager, developers, software consultants and sovereign digital identity specialists.

We're also grateful to see the positive developments and improvements to projects like DigiByte and Threefold, projects that DigiCorp has selected as pillars in our technology. We will keep the community updated about these technologies on our DigiMetaverse Show and DGMV subchannel.

Roadmap

It’s great to see we’re still ticking the boxes on our roadmap. Timing is always a challenge when we have to take into account our businesses and agreements.
Because we’re on schedule, we’re able to showcase our products this year at a fantastic exhibition. More information to follow! 

Because of the summer holidays in July and August, there will be no blog update for a couple of months. On June 29, at 14:00 UTC, we will be holding our first quarterly AMA in our Telegram chat, where we’ll be happy to answer all your questions as best we can. Please send your questions on the Telegram chat before June 24, using the hashtag #AMA in your message.

As always, keep spreading the word by sharing our articles across social media, and tagging and mentioning our profile.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR EXTRAORDINARY SUPPORT!

DigiCorp Update – May 2022

Dear Metanauts,

It’s time once again for our monthly update.
We’re approaching the end of the first half of 2022.
We know the market hasn’t been kind to us so far. All markets are “risk-off,” not only in crypto, but also in corporate and government bonds, equities, and commodities. Volatility is very high.
We understand there is a lot of uncertainty with all investors, but we are still building!
We are laser focused on business and developing products, and the token will have real utility in our solutions.
We are becoming part of a growing Metaverse, a technical evolution that needs to put data ownership and control back where it belongs; in the hands of users, data originators and contributors.

Partnerships

We are continuing to talk to several businesses and relevant companies where we see potential win-wins.
Some talks have been very prosperous. Our partnerships are not only related to corporate enterprises, where we cannot always be transparent, but also in the blockchain- and crypto-space, where we have active engagements with several projects. Last month, we announced a partnership with Ikonic, where we have great potential in the Metaverse, Web3, NFT and gaming space. This was very well received by their community. We are proud to announce we will have them on our DigiMetaverse show soon. Let us know if you have any questions about Ikonic, so Weynand Kuijpers can address them on the show.

Product and Technology Development

We are making great progress with our authenticator and password manager. We have some great POCs lined up for this product and are already using some customer feedback to make improvements. We will have our first commercial launch soon, and we expect the product to be ready to go to market in Q3/Q4. Timelines in software development are always difficult and challenging. Finding the right talents to scale up our team takes more time than anticipated. We are improving the UI/UX and putting together the required documentation for the products, as well as taking the necessary actions to monitor and enhance quality standards. We have to have a thorough approach to apply enterprise standards, related to (pen)testing, security protocols, privacy rules and compliance.
We also continue to develop other solutions with great features and unique technologies, like quantum-safe decentralized data management solutions and peer-to-peer communication solutions.
We are making some good progress there as well.
DigiByte and the Threefold Grid are important pillars in our technology, so DigiCorp will keep supporting the development and improvement of these technologies. We are also happy with our DGMV subchannel, where we are bringing lots of DigiByte news and updates as well as talking to some special DigiByte community members.

Roadmap

It’s great to see we have ticked all the boxes and accomplished everything on our April roadmap.
Some highlights:

I would like to repeat that in June, we will be holding our first quarterly AMA in the Telegram chat.
Keep spreading the word by sharing our articles across social media, and tagging and mentioning our profile.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR EXTRAORDINARY SUPPORT!

DigiCorp Update – April 2022

Dear Metanauts,

As promised, we want to give you a monthly update about DigiCorp, our vision, developments, and where we are at the moment in our journey to a secure, self-sovereign, decentralized Metaverse. It’s time for our April update!

Time passes quickly, but even in these last few weeks, a lot has been happening on so many levels.

Partnerships

We are very positive about the ongoing conversations we’ve been having with various parties in relation to our technology. We are focusing on qualifying potential alliances and partnerships to find mutual benefits, leverage opportunities, form synergies, and explore use-cases, all with the goal of forming a fundamental basis for a roll-out of our solutions that makes use of our technology and the DGMV token. This not only applies to Metaverse projects, but also FinTech projects and Corporate Enterprises, i.e. in e-Health, Government, NGOs, and many others. We have been on a great many calls and have planted a lot of seeds. This period of due diligence is happening in several stages. Once partnerships have been confirmed, we will announce everything and explain the situation further.

Product Development

We are on track with the development of our secure authenticator and password manager (Q2/Q3 –2022). The great distinguishing feature of this authenticator and password manager is that it will be built on the decentralized Quantum Safe Storage (QSS) grid of Threefold, and it will be enhanced with additional features to ultimately become a fully-fledged interoperable Metaverse wallet. Moreover, it will have the support on a corporate level.

We have over five POCs coming up with corporate enterprises, including Liqui Moly APAC. With the right technology stack and architecture we will make our Metaverse wallet interoperable, decentralized, secure, and future proof. The blockchain security is provided by DigiByte and we will add support for more chains in the near future to make the wallet truly interoperable. The DGMV token will of course play an important role in unlocking the license-based features in our wallet app.

Our suite of enterprise solutions, such as the video conferencing tool, secure web browser, and quantum-safe storage, is making progress too. With a focus on the near future, we want to make sure that it is scalable and secure, with the DGMV Authenticator integrated. Alongside this, we are also working on more immersive user Metaverse experiences.
Here, DGMV will be a mandatory token for unlocking license-based features.

Blockchain Development

DigiByte is an important pillar in our technology; a proven, battle-hardened blockchain since 2014, with a great balance between decentralization, speed, and security. The DGB coin is also, without doubt, the most suitable form of payment in the Metaverse.

It is important that the foundation of our technology is strong, stable, and secure. We are therefore very proud of our lead developer, Yoshi Jäger, who has done a great job on the development of the DigiByte blockchain related to the merge of 8.22. He has worked several hundreds of hours to perform functional tests and fix issues with DigiByte Core. This is a significant milestone for DigiByte, and gives DigiCorp the reliability it needs to use the DigiByte blockchain technology in their applications and solutions. It also allows us to develop our layer-2 solution on top of DigiByte later this year, where DGMV token will be used as gas.

DigiCorp attach great importance to inclusiveness and decentralization. The DigiByte Foundation will provide a detailed update soon, but the purpose of our work is to empower the DigiByte ecosystem and its partners, as well as businesses like DigiCorp, the community, developers and other stakeholders.

Enterprise Approach

What sets DigiCorp apart from other projects in this space is our corporate enterprise approach. This means that we are not only able to open up our business network to our technology, but that we are also able to ensure continuity and offer professional advice, consultancy, and support. Thanks to our team of highly experienced IT and data enterprise professionals, we can lay the foundation for professional development, deployment, and integration in a corporate enterprise environment.

In doing this, we can really drive the adoption of our decentralized technology in day-to-day solutions for consumers and customers. We can also announce that we have hired a technology consultant and solutions architect, who will help us to deliver and execute the implementation of our solutions.
We are convinced that by focusing on corporate enterprises, they will embed and embrace this technology for the new paradigm shift to more decentralized solutions, which will ultimately be transferred to consumer advantages.

Community Involvement

It is important to understand the different approach that we as a corporate team are taking. Our project is quite unlike any other project, and expectations from people in crypto space are far removed from people in a corporate environment.

This means that with regards to marketing and communication in particular, there is a balancing act to maintain. On the one hand, we are trying to be as transparent as possible and will get the community involved as much as we can. On the other hand, we are bound by expectations in businesses when taking into account the agreements and NDAs we have signed.

We always have emphasized from the start that we are a project with a focus on the longer term.
Without doubt, the success of our business, our products, and solutions will lead to a sharp increase in demand for the DGMV token, which will also eventually benefit our crypto community.

In June, we will be holding our first quarterly AMA, with team members from different disciplines answering your questions as best they can.

Meanwhile you can help us by spreading the word. Share our articles across social media, and tag and mention our profile.

Quantum Safe File Systems: The Here and Now of Data Security

With quantum computing on the horizon, the threat to data security is growing by the minute. As it exists in its current form, cryptography won’t be enough to protect individual or business data from a cryptanalytic attack by a quantum computer. The algorithms just won’t stand up.

Worse still, the amount of data that needs protecting is set to skyrocket in the next decade. By 2025, it is predicted that global data will grow to 163ZB, 10 times the amount stored in 2016. We need to act now, before the task becomes unfathomably huge.

Put simply, quantum problems require quantum solutions. This is why quantum-secure storage can meet the dual challenges of managing exponential growth in storage requirements and compliance
reporting.

Centralization Is a Risk

At the moment, the world runs on centralized data storage systems, reduced to a few monopolizing companies. Currently, there are relatively few options for data storage, and the most-used databases are enormous.

The problem with a centralized storage system is that one single security breach, virus, or hack could jeopardize the entire database.

That risk could run to millions, even billions of pieces of data.

But data centralization isn’t just risky; it’s also unfair. While it was highly effective as an initial solution, it too often results in the unfair distribution of assets and resources. Terms and conditions associated with the systems protect the data giants, not the individuals or small businesses.
Meanwhile, the users of these centralized data systems have no choice but to accept the conditions or be prohibited from participation.

What is more, third parties engage in fierce competition to keep their data customers within their own ‘walled gardens,’ so interoperability is neither profitable nor beneficial to these providers.

Customers can be forced to join and identify themselves in multiple communities and in doing so, often lose control of their data.

Quantum Computing Will Cause Security Issues

The next major development in technology is quantum computing, and it is going to be a major security headache unless we make plans now.

The fact of the matter is that most of the popular public-key algorithms currently used to encrypt data can easily be broken. In fact, most of our security algorithms now rely on one of three mathematical problems, all of which are solvable by a quantum computer running just one algorithm.

This means the security systems we have in place now won’t stand up to a quantum attack.

In large part, our individual lives and businesses are built around online systems - commerce, healthcare appointments, communication, and more. And with the Internet of Things growing at a rapid pace, we are now seeing a vast digitization of our human existence.

But with this greater digitization comes greater vulnerability – and greater repercussions if there is a security breach.

Taking Third Parties Out of the Equation

It is time to take back control of our data.

For a time, it was convenient to have our data managed by third parties. The systems they put in place allowed our online lives to thrive. Businesses grew and communication was transformed totally.

But with quantum computing bringing these new threats and risks, the situation has changed. Now, we must remove third-party data management completely and instead put data in a decentralized, pioneering new community-driven metaverse guarded by quantum-safe algorithms. And the good news is that by doing so, we can achieve a level of online security that third parties have never attained.

But how?

First, today’s data management systems often mean that individuals lose control of their data.

Taking third parties out of data management gives people and businesses self-sovereignty. With decentralized, sovereign IDs, we can all have a safe on/off ramp to the metaverse that keeps each of us fully in control of our own data.

Second, security is obviously going to be a huge benefit. By moving data storage to quantum-safe file systems in a decentralized, trustless network, we will have the double benefits of protection from quantum attack and the guarantee that our data can’t be corrupted.

And finally, individuals and businesses alike can regain ownership of their own data. DigiCorp’s self-sovereign digital asset wallet allows consumers and organizations to manage all their own digital assets and personal data in all forms and formats directly. No more third parties: full control.

Future Proof Your Data Now

Although quantum computers do not yet have the processing power to break any tough cryptographic algorithms, it will not be long before they start to appear.

In July last year, Chinese researchers claimed to have developed the fastest quantum computer to date. To prove its speed, researchers from the Zuchongzhi project completed a calculation that would take a normal supercomputer eight years to do, in little more than an hour.

Academics and industry leaders around the world are starting to prepare for a time when quantum computing manifests itself as not only the new normal, but as the greatest threat to data security.

Businesses and individuals need to get ahead of the game before it is too late. Even the world’s largest enterprises aren’t safe. Facebook alone has seen over a billion users affected by data breaches. And in April 2020, hackers stole and put up for sale 500,000 Zoom passwords.

These are breaches that were made with the ordinary computers of today. But once quantum computers have the power to break existing security algorithms, the fight will be lost.

It is critical that we move to a safe, secure data storage model right now. But there is some good news. In DigiThree and DigiLife, the technology already exists for businesses and individuals, respectively. With these solutions, the exponential growth in both data storage requirements and compliance reporting can be met, with secure data that drives both global business operations and individual lives.

DigiThree eliminates data storage-related security risks and threats with reliable, sustainable, easy-to-integrate solutions. And as the name suggests, it’s a three-pronged attack:

  1. Quantum secure storage: simple enterprise and user-level storage and file sharing;
  2. Backup data and data archiving: secure and controlled to streamline operations; and
  3. Secure log storage: monitored and defended log file storage and archives.

Meanwhile, DigiLife will establish a secure ecosystem for consumers, including NFT transactions, full
Metaverse SID integration, and the launch of digital assets that integrate with Metaverse wallets.

The message is clear. Whether you are a business or an individual, it is time to protect your data.
