Silica neXus – ori

WHAT ARE WE BUILDING? 

CONVERGENCE (Convergence of 4 Dimensions LLC) will create the first comprehensive Cross-Reality Virtual Universe (XR-VU) combining the consumer game market with the arcade and out-of-home entertainment market. Enjoy different ways of interacting with your friends from your one account that spans across Smartphones, Tablets, Consoles, PCs, Arcades, LBEs and the ultimate in Theme Park Attractions; all with Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Standard Screen Interfaces intertwined into one virtual universe, where each planet is a completely different game/experience. 

Goals: World domination! By using our networking savvy and bleeding-edge entertainment experience, we will lure all of humanity into our web of happy, joyful, gaming goodness. Without even realizing it, the masses will fall under our spell, losing themselves forever within Silica neXus. Of course we do have a fallback plan… simply building the largest entertainment project ever conceived, creating a cult-like following through social engagement tools from Managed Crowd-Sourcing and Crowd-Funding efforts.

Innovation: First use of Contextual Based Interfaces allowing different device-dependent entertainment experiences from both personal devices and out-of-home attractions merged contextually into one virtual universe.

WHY ARE WE BUILDING THIS?  

Because we love games, virtual environments and entertainment technology. It is time for Cross-Reality to be realized. Real innovation has stagnated since the 2004 debut of World of Warcraft. Major studios seem to be re-skinning old ideas; no one wants to take a chance on a truly innovative concept because they say: “It’s too BIG”, “It’s too expensive” and “It will never work”.

This is the team that can deliver authentic Cross-Reality experiences and create the technology, tools, protocols, game mechanics and procedures for other developers to create their own interactive Cross-Reality experiences. We believe that accomplishing that goal will change entertainment forever!

We are also tired of getting ripped off when we are trying to sell digital assets earned while playing our favorite games. We believe our players—all players—deserve safe, secure transactions with their virtual items when they want to trade or sell. Putting these transactions on the blockchain might not fully eliminate the rampant fraud happening, however, it will bring it much closer to extinction. 

THE BASICS

Crowdfunding Campaign

This is where you come in!

The scope of this project expands in the five major FUNDING STAGES below - so that no matter which funding level we attain, we’re sure to deliver a great Cross-Reality experience and platform for 3rd party developers to add to. Help us co-fund Silica neXus and let’s see how big this game can get!

STAGE 1 - Redemption Robot

The Redemption Robot is the first stage of Convergence's “Player Acquisition Engine.” A kiosk in Family Entertainment Centers (FECs) to deliver rare Crypto Collectables (Blockchain Non-Fungible Tokens "NFTs") to tens of millions of new players a month, and an online marketplace / auction site for players to trade them.

Think of the Silica neXus Social AR App like a multi-player Pokémon Go with a purpose to run quests and events in the real-world environment around your town, all tied to the Virtual Universe. This app will know the players next to you and allow for groups to interact cooperatively or as opposing forces.

STAGE 2 - S.A.R.A.

Think of the Silica neXus Social AR App (S.A.R.A.) like a multi-player Pokémon Go with a purpose to run quests and events in the real-world environment around your town, all tied to the Virtual Universe. This app will know the players next to you and allow for groups to interact cooperatively or as opposing forces.

STAGE 3 - Create Hard Wired XR Content

Convergence will work with our partners to make some of their content into the first truly Cross-Reality Content spanning mobile, Consoles, PC, and out-of-home-entertainment equipment. This will give us the knowledge and best practices to create the tool sets for others to create their own XR Content.

STAGE 4 - CORE 

This stage we will take the lessons learned to create the tools for developers to create XR Content limited by their imagination.

We've focused on really awesome reward levels that we know we can deliver. This focus will allow us to devote more of your funding towards making the best Silica neXus Platform possible!

Stake your claim! This is your opportunity to grab some land on the other side of the neXus. When our first town is established and land is sectioned off, first come first served opportunity to grab your personal piece of this new frontier. We have secured a beachhead in several planetary systems which allow you to put down roots with the help of your remote avatar. Our friends from a nearby system have not only provided us with the technology that creates a safe and stable wormhole, but have also provided remote entities that resemble species and technologies from their side. This allows you to achieve telepresence on their world. To them you will appear as a native. It’s like you’re really there! Opportunity to become a beta tester for the Silica neXus Social Augmented Reality App (SARA) when it becomes available. Standard Land Plots are 150 x 150 Meters. 

Delivery:Before March, 2019

Limit: 0 of 3000 Taken
Prospector: $50.00

Monitor your Resource Bot remotely and gather valuable resources. Alloy is needed as a consumable resource to build many things; buildings, droids, weapons, vehicles, ammunition, and the like. Alloy is produced from Ore. You can either buy the ore, or create your own here so you never run out. With this level you receive one Ore Resource Bot, which detects and extracts one standard unit (SU) of ore per month to be processed into alloy by a Processing Plant. You also have an opportunity to become a beta tester for the Silica neXus Social Augmented Reality App (SARA) when it becomes available.

More about Resource Bots: Nanites (Microscopic Nanobots) assemble to form coins so people can pick them up (ever tried to pick up just one molecule?) They are also used to create Resource bots on the CORE planets of Silica neXus. These basic resource bots are used in the collection and production of basic Consumable Resources (“Consumables”) such as Fuel and Alloy on the CORE planets. These Consumables will be used by the players throughout the CORE planets just like gas and steel are consumed in countries around the world. Opportunity to become a beta tester for SARA when it becomes available.

Resource bots will be stored in users’ accounts, along with all of the other virtual goods they collect, until traded or put to use to create resource bots. Resource bots are installed on land parcels to acquire fundamental Crude or Ore for processing into Fuel or Alloy respectively. Fuel and Alloy can be used, stored or traded.  Early Adopters through Convergence’s Crowdsource campaign can become first Resource Barons in the SXVU. As the number of users grows on the system, the scarcity of resources will create a natural supply/demand market and the value of resources will fluctuate based upon this demand created by the users. Very similar to the ecosystem of the World of Warcraft community.
