TRON VR :globe_with_meridians::video_game:

Inspiration :bulb:

In the realm of digital asset management, users often grapple with security risks, opaque practices, high fees, and restrictive vendor lock-ins imposed by centralized systems. :worried: These issues not only undermine trust but also limit user accessibility and control over their digital content, especially in the burgeoning field of virtual reality. TRON VR confronts these challenges head-on by pioneering a decentralized platform that revolutionizes how digital assets are stored, managed, and interacted with! :rocket:

Overview :star2:

Welcome to TRON VR, where we redefine digital interactions by merging virtual reality with blockchain technology! :dark_sunglasses::sparkles: TRON VR is a decentralized platform that utilizes the robust TRON blockchain and the BitTorrent File System (BTFS) to provide unparalleled security, transparency, and reduced transaction costs. Get ready for a game-changing experience!

Project Goal :dart:

To establish a decentralized platform that enables the storage and seamless interaction with all types of digital assets using TRON and BTFS, allowing users to explore, interact with, and own their virtual reality experiences. Dive into a world where you control your digital destiny! :earth_africa::dizzy:

Key Features :key:

  • Enhanced Security and Ownership: Leveraging blockchain’s immutable ledger, all user data, ownership information, and transactions are securely recorded. :shield:
  • Elimination of Vendor Lock-in and Lower Fees: Our decentralized approach reduces dependency on centralized entities and lowers transaction fees. :money_with_wings:
  • Global Accessibility and Empowerment: Democratizes access to digital assets, enabling global interaction without geographic or financial barriers. :globe_with_meridians:
  • Scalable and Interoperable: Supports a wide variety of digital assets and facilitates expansion and cross-platform interoperability with BTFS integration. :chart_with_upwards_trend:

Tech Stack :hammer_and_wrench:

  1. Smart Contract on TRON: Deployed on the TRON Shasta testnet to manage metadata for 3D objects, ensuring secure storage on the blockchain.
  2. BTFS for Storage: Utilizes BTFS’s decentralized network for efficient and secure data storage.
  3. TronLink Wallet Integration: Facilitates secure transactions and blockchain access.

Installation and Testing :package:

To engage with TRON VR:

  1. Download the Unity package from the project website.
  2. Install it and use a compatible VR headset to access the platform.
  3. Navigate through a diverse range of digital assets in a virtual gallery, interact in real-time, and verify asset details through the blockchain interface.

Project Milestones :checkered_flag:

  • Hackathon: Deployment of the smart contract and operational VR interface.
  • Future Milestones: Development of a Web UI to facilitate the addition and retrieval of digital assets to and from BTFS.

Join Us :handshake:

Join us at TRON VR, where we’re not just imagining the future of virtual realities—we’re building it! :milky_way: Explore, interact, and truly own your digital experiences in a secure, transparent virtual world with TRON VR. Shape your reality; the future is yours to own, powered by TRON and BTFS. :fire:

Welcome to Hackathon session 6

Can you elaborate on the types of digital assets that users will be able to store and interact with on the TRON VR platform?

Thank you @Okorie! Hi @Chizz, right now it is just static 3D models (like .fbx, .obj files). I want to eventually expand that into entire virtual NPCs and worlds that you can interact with in VR!

All the state changes will be stored in BTFS so you can for the first time own these virtual realities and have the ability to transfer these living breathing metaverse assets to where-ever it is needed while retaining all memories and previous interactions!

Thank you very much!! My first time hacking on TRON, it was a blast

William welcome to season 6. You need to include project website, video (maybe from youtube, facebook or vimeo) and source code on forum too. So developers and TRONics here can review your project in detail. Good luck in voting phase

In what ways do you plan to ensure user empowerment and ownership over their digital interactions within the virtual reality landscape?

Hello @williamwang , welcome to TRON hackathon!

I reviewed your submission. I could not find any interaction with TRON or BTFS on your code. Looks like you just copy/pasted the CID from the nft hub, then pasted it into a smart contract, later on copied again and just downloaded the previously uploaded content and used it for your VR app.

This does not qualify as integration. Hopefully you can come back with a truly integrated blockchain VR solution on Season 7.

Good luck!
