KuCoin Labs, the investment and incubation arm of the KuCoin ecosystem, has officially announced its proceeding incubation programme with Univers Network, a metaverse infrastructure project designed to empower communities and revolutionize Web-3.
As an independent metaverse project designing infrastructure tools to enable interoperability across virtual worlds, Univers Network has over 50+ developers from its team based in Paris, France, working in both blockchain and game engines to develop an SDK that will allow for metaverse interconnectivity.
The Univers Network is developing a proprietary mechanism called ‘Choose-to-Earn’, which will connect developers and users while creating value for the user bases of both projects involved.
Its Decentralized Publishing Company (DPC) will be launched later this year, with additional projects and development studios to be involved in their ecosystem.
Another main focus for the Univers Network in 2022 will be the unification of game engines, bringing E-Sports to the blockchain, with the goal of redefining the way humans interact with virtual worlds.
“KuCoin Labs aims to enhance Web-2 entrepreneurs’ understanding and adoption of Web-3. KuCoin Labs is advising Univers Network in various aspects, sharing knowledge regarding Web-3 community incentives, technical structures, business strategy, marketing orientations, fundraising, as well as go-to-market plans, etc,” stated Lou YU, Head of KuCoin Labs.
In the future, KuCoin Labs will explore potential and diversified collaborations with Univers Network, which will grant it the scalability and resources required to be the leading innovative and metaverse infrastructure solution.
