Once upon a time, the appearance on the market of the game Pokemon Go changed the face of the industry. The phenomenon of the game was the combination of geolocation technologies and augmented reality. With the advent of blockchain and cryptocurrency, these technologies have played a new role, giving impetus to the development of the metaverse and games based on the play-to-earn mechanics.
How did the combination of these aspects show up in three popular games in space?
The first project was Dogami, which seems to have followed Pokemon Go and Animal Crossing as inspiration. Dogami is working to provide users with virtual NFT dogs that can be bred and raised. It will be a first-of-its-kind experience using geolocation for day-to-day activities and AR for people to interact with their digital companions.
Another successful application that uses geolocation and blockchain technology is StepN. It allows users to walk and run to earn money by completing daily tasks. Its concept could spur many companies, like Nike, to create a product for the metaverse, where users would be motivated to perform various tasks.
Coin Hunt World is another Explore-To-Earn app that combines augmented reality technology. Outwardly, it is very similar to Pokemon Go. For tasks, players can receive rewards in the form of cryptocurrency and NFT.
The use of AR, geolocation, and blockchain is becoming a pervasive mix of technologies in the metaverse, which suggests that more such projects will soon emerge. After all, Meta and Apple are working to create VR and AR in the metaverse. The above project only needs to consolidate the success
