Next Earth expands its Metaverse with the first-ever transportation layer
Say goodbye to the hassles of traditional travel with Next Earth
Everything you think about traveling is worth reconsidering because Next Earth has taken transport to a whole new level.
Next Earth, sustainability-focused Metaverse with nearly 240,000 users and over 45,000 virtual landowners, has announced a new partnership today with Iomob, the groundbreaking blockchain company developing the first decentralized Mobility Marketplace Network and token protocol in the world. The new partnership will be implemented through Limitless, the Metaverse integrator and go-to full-stack solution for established brands and startups, pairing Iomob and Next Earth seamlessly.
However, the strategic alliance does not stop there; the third member of the partnership has become the socially responsible Vueling Airlines. Under the new partnership, these companies will work together to develop tools and services that allow “Next Earthians” to visualize and plan real-world journeys. From now on, users will be able to track carbon emissions and book “carbon positive” transport through the Metaverse and Iomob companion app.
Gabor Retfalvi, CEO of Next Earth, commented on the partnership, “Next Earth and Iomob are an exceptionally good match and use case. The development of methods to visualize and experience sustainable journeys within Next Earth fits perfectly with the natural evolution that defines our environment. This is a great next step for our company’s platform and evolution.”
Why is this partnership unique?
Iomob is a transport company in the “real world” that helps users plan their A-to-B journeys while allowing them to schedule a number of services such as taxis, scooters, public transport, parking and more.
Vueling Airlines is a Spanish airline that served 32 million passengers in 2019, the last year before the epidemic, and is the first airline that enables bookings through Metaverse.
They add the ability to book real flights in Next Earth and then access them via QR codes through an accompanying mobile app.
These show that Next Earth’s partnership with Iomb and Vueling Airlines brings together several unique entities that can have a significant positive impact on environmental challenges.
The future together
Next Earth has taken its place at the center of the Metaversal Industrial Revolution with its unique 1:1 recreation of the Earth and its mission to create the first decentralized virtual world.
Meanwhile, Iomob recently announced investments from True Global Ventures, A100x and Creas. Jointly with Vueling Airlines, this new venture will make intermodal mobility more accessible by tapping into 7,000 taxi fleets, micro-mobility in more than 270 cities, thousands of parking spaces and more than 480 public transit feeds.
Both Iomob and Vueling Airlines have high confidence in the partnership.
“We are working alongside Next Earth to create the transportation infrastructure that enables a more exciting, purposeful and immersive way to traverse the planet,” said Boyd Cohen, CEO of Iomob. “Airlines are actively strategizing about how to bring their presence into the Metaverse, so extending our relationship with Vueling Airlines to augment their Web3 bookings is a fantastic initiative for everyone.”
Jesus Monzo, Distribution Strategy and Alliances Manager of Vueling added:
“Visualizing real-world journeys and the carbon footprint for each leg and using a Metaverse interface to select and book the least environmentally harmful trip has never been done before.”
Next Earth is the Earth’s original digital replica; a blockchain metaverse that enables the creation of communities derived from non-fungible tokens (NFTs) of real Earth properties. The Next Earth platform enables citizens to buy and sell lands on a virtual earth while creating value on the real one; a social experiment on how virtual spaces can be managed, governed, and used to back environmental projects.
