A gallery with the Catholic Church’s internal repository made available via NFT, digital records with a certain amount of authenticity and unique value, and the Vatican’s entry into the Metavers so that people could access these materials. This is the condition of the technology company Sensorium which made the news this week.
According to a press release, the company, which specializes in making meteors, has partnered with Humanity 2.0, a non-profit organization affiliated with the Vatican.
The move was announced last Monday (2). However, this has not yet been officially confirmed by the Catholic Church. Here is what we know (and don’t know) about the action so far.
What does the project say?
The idea, according to the disclosure statement, is to keep the digital gallery, in 3D, with materials such as manuscripts, paintings and educational initiatives related to the Vatican.
Digitized versions of these works will be displayed in NFT format, files with authenticity recorded in blockchain transactions and data storage technology, a network that holds cryptocurrencies such as bitcoins.
Work interactions will be via Metavers, accessible via computer or cell phone via headphones and virtual reality. The system will even allow visitors to create virtual avatars to explore the digital gallery.
The Vatican has a rich historical heritage. His collection includes names like Michelangelo, Raphael, Mark. ChagalSalvador Daly, Paul Gauguin, واسلی Kundansky, Vincent وین Google And Pablo Picasso.
Father Philip Larry, President of Humanity 2.0, said, “We look forward to working with Censorium to find ways to democratize art, and to make it accessible to people around the world from their socio-economic and geographical boundaries. Regardless, it should be made more widely available. “
What is it Sensorium?
Created in 2018, Sensorium is a developer of virtual reality and metavers applications.
Her portfolio, according to the company, includes quotes from virtual shows by artists such as David Guetta, Armin van Buuren and Steve Aoki. And even interactive games, including JZ and The Night League titles.
And Humanity 2.0?
Foreign media sites spent several days trying to confirm Humanity 2.0’s relationship with the Vatican and get more details about the announced partnership. Lack of response led to mistrust.
Tried to interview Father Philip. LarrySpokesman for Humanity 2.0 also made. it’s nothing.
Voice says he was offered an interview before the announcement, but it became clear when the time came. A few days later, the report received the following response from the Sensorium: “Humanity 2.0. An organization affiliated with the Vatican.”
The website Futurism also reported the same problem in communication.
There is no mention of the Catholic Church’s Digital Gallery Project on the Humanity 2.0 website.
One area of concern when it comes to NFT is the risk of market scams – primarily from hacker attacks. The website Futurism says that, therefore, the sense of mystery surrounding the initiative is strange.
Statement issued by the father Larry It simply states that the Sensorium Galaxy virtual platform is in the testing phase and should be launched later this year. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
So far, the Catholic Church has not taken a position to confirm or deny involvement in the project.
