Itheum: Creating an Open Decentralized Metaverse

Itheum will help lay the foundations for the Open Metaverse

Ushering in the Web3 and Metaverse Era

Web3 and Metaverse are the new frontiers of technological development. Web3 is the next-gen iteration of the internet focused on decentralizing the world wide web. The Metaverse is an emergent virtual reality space through which users can interact in a computer generated environment. Both inventions are still in their infancy but are fast gaining traction driven by the development of new protocols, applications and platforms coupled with groaning adoption.

What is Itheum?

Itheum is the world’s first decentralized, cross-chain data brokerage platform. We focus on unlocking data silos, created and closely guarded by Web2 organizations, to generate new value for the owners of this data. At Itheum, we recognize that data is a highly tradable asset with immense worth for those who control it — in this sense, we aim to empower users by letting them regain control of their data to the users as we enter the Web3 and Metaverse era.

Comparing Itheum & Meta

Facebook has recently started building their much-hyped Metaverse, rebranding to Meta to help tailor to this new Web3 audience — however, it’s still a centralized platform where the company will retain huge control over all aspects of personal user data. This is anything but decentralization but rather an extension of the social media giant’s operations and transition from Web2 to Web3. Meta is a closed Metaverse that still retains the status quo, meaning they’re retaining the same data silos and will therefore benefit from the value generated by user information.

Looking Forward

At Itheum, we’re adding the building blocks needed to lay the foundation of revitalizing data usage in the Web3 era. As more Metaverse platforms continue to emerge, the management of user data will be critical, as it will greatly determine how people interact and socialize across the digital and real worlds.

About Itheum

Itheum empowers data ownership in the Web3 and Metaverse ecosystems and creates new market value for your data. It enables this by providing “decentralized data brokerage” technology. It’s a suite of tools that enable high-value data to be bridged from web2 to web3 and then be traded via peer-to-peer sales. It allows for “viral adoption” via our creative “Data NFTs” (provide “inner value” to NFTs and enable royalties / limited supply) and “N.F.Me ID” technology (a living Metaverse avatar representation of you — wrapped as an NFT and backed by personal data) and our innovative Data Coalition DAOs (which bulk trades your data). It also aims to be fully privacy-preserving, regulation-friendly and cross-chain; making it the most comprehensive core blockchain data infrastructure available in the market with use-cases in both the enterprise and consumer space.
