Unlimited Access to the Metaverse Via First Headgear-Optional, Download-Free Platform
LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--$AP #1000000_Active_Users--Ault Alliance, Inc. (NYSE American: AULT) (“Ault Alliance”), a diversified holding company, and BitNile Metaverse, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNMV) (“BitNile Metaverse” or the “Company”), the company operating the rapidly growing virtual world, BITNILE.com (the “Platform”), announced that the Platform has surpassed 1,000,000 engaged users in less than seven weeks since launching its early-access phase.
The 3D Platform’s appeal is growing as a multitude of people have experienced unlimited access to the Metaverse in a browser-based format without plug-ins, downloads or apps, which can be enjoyed with or without a costly virtual reality headset.
“What’s amazing is that we are still in ‘preview’ mode, with very little interactive content in the Platform,” said Founder and Executive Chairman of Ault Alliance, Milton “Todd” Ault, III. “But that is changing rapidly, as we are planning to add some great new games and in-world features this month. Soon, the Platform will, in my opinion, be the hottest spot in the Metaverse.”
BitNile Metaverse owns and operates the Platform through its wholly owned subsidiary BitNile.com, Inc. (“BNI”).
Launched on March 1, 2023, the Platform currently provides a preview of the foundational world and related activities. New features and functionalities will be added regularly, encompassing 3D immersive games, eCommerce, live streaming entertainment, and social networking. BNI is working on implementing a tiered rewards system on the Platform to encourage users to visit frequently and stay for extended periods. Advertisers are anticipated to benefit from increased “stickiness” and inventive advertising models to be implemented on the Platform.
Regarding its upcoming features and experiences, Douglas Gintz, President of BNI, said, “We are targeting May 1, 2023 for the rollout of the first of many expected social gaming experiences that will offer eligible users a chance to win real-world prizes, including cash. We will provide more detail in the near future, or users can sign up at BITNILE.com to keep up to date.”
The Company’s dedication to improving the user experience across the Platform via ongoing innovation and expansion is expected to further solidify its position within the metaverse market. As the number of users continues to grow, the Platform is poised to become a premier destination for those seeking a truly immersive and interconnected virtual world. Users can access and explore the early-access version of the Platform and receive updates by visiting https://BITNILE.com.
The Platform uses Google Analytics to track usage and identify users. A user is considered to be engaged if one of the following conditions is met: the session lasted longer than 10 seconds; it resulted in one or more conversation events; or it resulted in two or more page/screen views.
