The Elrond Research Thesis on holoride: How The Metaverse Will Redefine Transportation

At Elrond we define the Metaverse as the interoperable meta-space that incorporates all the different digital universes, with blockchain technology acting as the key coordination mechanism in this distributed and interconnected ecosystem.

With true ownership firmly established across all the different spaces inside the Metaverse, a universe of opportunities is created for users and content creators.

You will soon be able to wear your favorite World of Warcraft armor set at a Coldplay concert in Decentraland or bring a Jedi lightsaber to the Roblox screening of the latest Star Trek movie as a conversation starter.

The endless possibilities will soon expand beyond art and entertainment into virtually all consumer - and perhaps even industrial - goods, the purchase of which will inevitably also include a virtual replica in the form of an NFT.

Environments fusing infinite combinations of real world objects and settings with virtual elements will create compelling augmented environments that will enhance productivity, make for better learning experiences and will be a lot of fun.

This is why we believe that holoride will be essential to everyone who wants to stay connected to the Metaverse on the go. The unique combination of technologies used in holoride will create a strong connection between the automotive industry and the new digital economy, which will result in entirely new business models and opportunities.

“The Elrond Research contribution to holoride is a long term commitment to support the efforts of the team that combines technological innovation with fair, transparent and compelling economics, to create an entirely new business vertical with an enormous potential.” said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond Network CEO.
