FOTA integrates the Microsoft Mesh technology, a Platform built by Microsoft Corporation to explore and experience the Metaverse in the best way. Microsoft Mesh is the world's first Platform that fully supports MR technology.
MR (Mixed reality), also known as hybrid reality, is a world mixed between reality and virtual world in which real and virtual objects both exist and interact in real-time. MR is a combination of VR and AR technologies. In MR, the things of the real world and the virtual world will interact with each other. In short, this technology holds real-world information in the virtual world, creating a world that mixes both reality and fantasy. Mixed reality technology is similar to AR. But not monotonous with graphics or text on the real background, this technology focuses on systems, links to create an environment full of facilities such as SKYPE phone calls or Microsoft Hololens to connect all multimedia content and entertainment.
FOTA is designed to optimize the Unity 3D Engine. Unity 3D will be used to enhance the smooth graphical experience of FOTA characters or worlds, so that users can easily immerse themselves in the Metaverse.
In addition, the game is also built on an in-house framework that makes the operation of the platform stable as well as capable of receiving updates in the fastest way. It is guaranteed to bring a new and attractive entertainment platform.
With a vision of universalizing the Metaverse for all audiences, FOTA will be developed simultaneously on iOS, Android, WebGL, Windows, and macOS platforms right from the design process. These platforms will regularly receive the latest updates from the FOTA development team.
During development, the team has realized that a Blockchain platform is necessary for the issuance of assets in the form of NFTs as well as FOTA Tokens. Choosing Binance Smart Chain as the main platform to develop FOTA's Metaverse has shown outstanding advantages with low transaction fees, universal NFT standards, and, especially, the Binance user ecosystem. In the future, other Blockchain platforms will also be optimized with the FOTA ecosystem, such as Solana and Polygon.
Our lives have become increasingly linked to the apps, services, and devices we use to enable the experience of internet-based apps. This digital transformation allows us to interact with hundreds of applications and thousands of other users in ways that the pre-internet world did not allow.
Therefore, in the Blockchain world, and especially Metaverse, DID will become a tool that allows each individual to identify himself. FOTA believes that the Decentralized Identity system can open up new experiences for users on Metaverse platforms in the near future. DID will allow users to have more control over identity documents. They can store, manage, and authenticate their own DIDs across apps.
More about the technology, DIDs will be deeply integrated in the FOTA Metaverse platform with mechanisms related to the decentralized network. Allowing personal information to be stored on Blockchain networks will promote security, transparency, and instant access.
We are strongly focusing on the People-Process-Technology to build a fantastic game that you will enjoy playing and protect your assets and hard-working efforts. We found that applying non-fungible tokens into the gaming platform has allowed players to overcome all the adversaries they faced. Firstly, our token embraces the true ownership of gaming assets. Secondly, it will enable players to move from game to app and vice versa, so they can use our tokens everywhere they go. As a popular and proven standard of all NFTs, we utilize ERC-721, proposed by William Entriken, Dieter Shirley, Jacob Evans, Nastassia Sachs in January 2018 as a Non-Fungible Token Standard.
In the common centralized platform, digital and online games were prone to hacking and cyber-attacks from the beginning of time. Storing digital gaming assets on a blockchain would enhance the security for a player who has worked hard to collect them. The in-game purchases are recorded thoroughly on the digital ledger. We significantly increase transparency, maintain the game balance, and prevent the theft of ownership. Since the digital gaming assets are on-chain, the in-game assets cannot be replicated or destroyed as it is unique. For a user's on-chain transaction, the smart contract design guarantees the atomicity of transaction settlement, that is, either the transaction conditions are met to complete the settlement, or the transaction fails, and the user's assets are always kept in the wallet, under the user's control. We support all major Web3 wallets, which will bring not only convenience but also security. It was identified as a huge challenge to store all large data on the blockchain and not efficient. We keep those off-chain data secured by indexing them with a hash function and storing the blockchain's indexed hash value that cannot be modified.
In many projects, security-related tasks were only tackled at the very end of the software development lifecycle. Right before it's going to be deployed, a security team, or an auditing team, sometimes even externally hired only for a short period of time, would step in, do some review, and generate some reports and improvement plans. Instead of a security audit as a silo at the end, we do it on the fly. By shifting left, security practices and testing are performed earlier in the development lifecycle, rather than at the end, which allows us to discover security issues earlier and fix them immediately.
We are building our game platform on the cloud with a security-by-design approach, defense-in-depth concept, and zero-trust security framework for all our services. We reduced risk related to technology, insider threats, and the supply chain. It also helps us establish a cyber-forward strategy that reinforces and enhances company objectives, including security and trust. As we embed DevSecOps in every stage of the development lifecycle, it enables the development of secure games and related applications at the speed of Agile. Within DevSecOps, security is a central part of the entire lifecycle of the software development process. While we are iterating faster, getting feedback faster, improving faster so that we can serve you better, we have implemented Security as Code or Policy as Code for our environment on the cloud and protect it with the best of class security solutions.
