The Open Metaverse Alliance (OMA3), based in Zug, is meeting for the first time at the Web Summit in Lisbon. In its announcement, OMA3 makes clear that it wants to create standards for decentralized metaverses. Early adopters include Animoca Brands, Alien Worlds, Dapper Labs, MetaMetaverse, SPACE Metaverse, SuperWorld, Sandbox, Upland, Voxels, Unstoppable Domains, and Wivity.
OMA3 aims to ensure that digital lands, virtual identities, assets, ideas and services are interoperable across metaverse platforms and transparent to all communities. Many working groups will focus on specific goals, including creating standards that allow users to navigate virtual worlds. It is also about standardizing the infrastructure for transferring digital assets between virtual worlds or even examining the protection and fair use of intellectual property in Web3 applications as well as monitoring the evolution of the regulatory environment.
The alliance invites interested companies to join. OMA3’s vision is to move from the platform-controlled world of Web2 to the user-centered Web3 metaverse. To achieve this, we have formed a coalition of Web3 companies that want to solve interoperability issues in the metaverse, and we want to leverage the alliance’s knowledge and original vision of Web3 to help deliver and set the standard for interoperability in the metaverse,” says Dirk Lueth, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Upland, and the founding member and president of OMA3.
