Bridgetown, Barbados / Toronto, Canada , Sept. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Aftermath Islands Metaverse and Liquid Avatar Technologies
Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited together with Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE:LQID / OTC:LQAVF) is excited to announce the introduction of Liquid Avatar’s Meta Park Pass, an innovative Web 3 based digital identity credential that allows users to simply and easily prove themselves as a “real person” without disclosing personally identifiable information to a website, gaming platform, eCommerce site and other online platforms. Aftermath Islands Metaverse will be the first organization to use the Meta Park Pass to assure its players and users are real people. The Meta Park Pass can be used at all participating Metaverses or platforms without having to create new credentials, making it one of the first interoperable digital identities for the Metaverse. The Meta Park Pass uses a scannable QR code to sign in along with a user’s biometrics eliminating the need for usernames and passwords and potentially reducing the opportunity for fraud.
Already recognized as a leading application in the digital identity arena, Liquid Avatar Mobile App uses blockchain based technologies in combination with biometrics to create and secure a W3C Verifiable Credential. The Meta Park Pass is accessed via the users’ biometric and will be used to determine a user’s jurisdiction via verified phone number and self-attested age with an AI verification rating. The Liquid Avatar App’s biometric and verified mobile device eliminates duplicate accounts and provides a high assurance level that every account is a real user. These features can be used by businesses to create intelligent decision processes for acceptance of users. As adoption of the Metaverse increases and more services are created, The Liquid Avatar Mobile App can provide full verification of users with available KYC (Know Your Customer) services in over 180 countries. These identity verifiable credentials can be the foundation to create unique credentials to improve a user’s experience in the Metaverse and other platforms.
With state-of-the-art realistic graphics based on the Unreal 5 engine, using GPU Cloud server technology and Pixel Streaming that allows gameplay without download and enables all types of devices, including mobile phones and tablets to display realistic graphic environments. Aftermath Islands will be deploying the Meta Park Pass with its unique biometrics and verifiable credentials to create assurance for all its users that everyone is a real person, with one user only allowed to enable one account. Users will be allowed to have multiple credentials, avatars, and other items. Aftermath Islands is also working to deploy Decentralized Identifiers to transactions and communications allowing for greater privacy across its platform.
“Aftermath Islands is excited to be one of the first to be able to support a solution that creates assurance for our players and business partners that users are real people,” said David Lucatch, Managing Director of Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited. “Deploying an interoperable digital identity solution that allows users to manage and control their personal information and data is a true game changer, and has the potential to increase safety, privacy and reduce fraud to create a better experience for all Metaverse participants.”
According to Verified Market Research, the Metaverse Market size was valued at USD 27.21 Billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 824.53 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 39.1% from 2022 to 2030. Citi has stated that the Metaverse may be in its infancy, but it could represent a revenue opportunity of as much as $13 trillion and have a major impact on not just key tech players, but also cryptocurrencies.
The Liquid Avatar Mobile App and Meta Park Pass supports the migration from Web2 to Web3 and makes it easy for a user to engage with a partner website, Metaverse or platform. By just scanning a QR code, or activating through a mobile URL, eliminating the need for username and password, the user is prompted through their mobile device to accept the credential request and to verify that request with their biometrics. The verified credential will be passed to the site or platform and facilitate a login for the user.
“Liquid Avatar Technologies mission is to usher in Web3 technologies that gives the power back to the individuals. Our tools empower people to own, manage and control their identity and digital footprint.” said RJ Reiser, Chief Information Officer of Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. “Aftermath Islands’ Metaverse is an ideal showcase for our Meta Park Pass which will allow users to prove that they’re real people and allow businesses and partners a higher level of assurance in their marketing and promotional activities, potentially creating more value for everyone.”
