Session description: Flairr is an extended metaverse made as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS), developed by Flairr Labs. It is a virtual world comprising of smart properties, digital identities, and digital assets, based on Block-lattice (a new generation of Blockchain) technology. The goal of Flairr is to create a digital/virtual universe (i.e., metaverse) to extend, augment and complement our world’s reality. Through the deployment of a proprietary network available via stationary and mobile devices, Flairr enables users and communities, Schools and Universities (Educational Partners), local and national businesses, merchants, and service providers (Business Partners) to connect with each other in a meaningful way. Users will get to explore their surrounding environment, play games, complete quests and challenges, create their social network and get to know other users, apply for jobs, etc., by using Flairr. On the other hand, partners may use Flairr for educational, entertainment, employment, or other purposes, as well as offer promotions and other incentives to users via digital utility tokens called “Flairrcoin” (flr). Moreover, partners can host Flairr nodes to generate, distribute, receive, send, or process their own Flairrcoin. By using the Flairr for promotions and user engagement, participating partners can reach their target audience more efficiently while reducing costs associated with traditional marketing and promotions management. This cost savings will be mainly transferred to Flairr network participants creating a more effective and sustainable win-win relationship between users and partners..
