Outside Interactive, Inc. states that the new “Outerverse” is an alternative to the Metaverse, which encourages people to lead “real” lives. GearJunkie had one simple question: how?
What will be the currency-based online content pools and marketplaces designed solely to support transactions on the Internet? Do you incentive people to go outdoors and actually do something?
Simply put, Outside’s Outerverse uses cryptocurrencies and NFTs on the (environmentally friendly) Solana blockchain to motivate users to go out and become active. NFT products say they will focus on outdoor sports.
The benefits of buying them are also aimed at helping buyers get out. Partnerships with apps and other brands also leverage hiking / bike / run-type challenges to achieve the same effect.
Released in a phased release throughout 2022, Outerverse will ultimately consist of an NFT marketplace, creator platform, and loyalty tokens. The NFT Marketplace constitutes the first launch to begin in early June.

External teams are particularly excited to move into the world of cryptocurrencies. Whether or not the platform’s customers experience a similar spirit is somewhat highlighted.

“Game Changer”: How Outerverse works
Outside CEO Robin Thurston called Outerverse a “game changer” for outdoor enthusiasts. He also distinguished it from the evolution of the Internet or the new place where businesses aim to increase profits, the Metaverse — Or, of course, both..
“Our vision is very bold. We want to take advantage of these new technologies to take the next generation of adventurers outdoors, and blockchain the values that our followers value. We want to infuse the culture, “says Thurston. “Big Tech wants you to live a virtual life. We create experiences and content that will help you live a real life. Outerverse is adventure, inclusive and sustainable. This is where the technology that facilitates the existence of technology exists. ”
That sounds great, but at least for now, “how” sounds like much of the existing Social media challenges Or incentive content.
Most Outerverse content is in the form of NFT offerings (or “minting” for starters). To protect them, registered users can access Outerverse, choose from the available ones and purchase with either Solana cryptocurrency or credit card.
NFT is owned by the owner for running, traveling, cyclingMountaineering, film screenings and festival participation, all outdoor activities appear to be on the table.
As an example, an outsider theorized an NFT connected to a popular marathon. Fictitious NFTs may include ownership of unique digital art by the host city’s artists, invitations to marathon weekend artists’ showcases, and post-race swag bags from brand partners. As an incentive, brand partnerships allow you to record specific mileage in running apps and win invitations to VIP tents after the marathon.

Example only: The mystery of the outer berth
Of course, you can’t bother to train yourself and buy your own VIP ticket. However, purchasing an NFT has the advantage of protecting the example asset (artwork).
As Outside builds a set of content providers and brand partners for Outerverse, other similar opportunities may follow.
However, Outside has not confirmed the details of the NFT. We have also not confirmed whether some of the examples provided by NFTs will become reality.
“The possibilities are endless,” Thurston said. “Some examples have been devised, but not on a specific roadmap. I haven’t discussed these ideas with the brand, it’s just brainstorming.”
He added:[a]What we’re talking about is working with brands and creator partners to address the endless possibilities that inspire people to get out. ”
The possibilities may be endless (because I’ve heard of them), but for now, they’re also speculations. Miller has confirmed that NFTs cannot be published on the Outside.io Marketplace unless they are “enhanced with real perks and rewards.”
Of course, the project is well underway and its arrival is probably unavoidable. Thurston said 10 “famous creators and athletes are already in attendance,” Outside confirms that existing nonprofits, influencers and brand partners will create NFTs in the next 12 months. Did.
Look for heavy hitters such as SRAM, Brooks Running, and Skratch Labs in our lineup. Influential people on board include artist Chris Burkard and world champion mountain biker Rebecca Rush.
In addition to the momentum, the outer berth passport has already dropped. Basically, this is an access package that includes a 3-year subscription to Outside + and early access to future NFT minting.
Sustainability and DEI
Externals also plan to package Outerverse as a Sustainability and Diversity, Fairness and Comprehensive Initiative (DEI). The brand states that it will channel 20% of the revenue from all NFT mint in the market to select non-profit partners that support the DEI and sustainability initiatives.
And that choice to be a partner Solana It is a bid to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the market itself.Generally speaking, cryptocurrency transactions Consume a lot of energy.. However, in the Solana blockchain, transactions consume the same amount of energy as two Google searches.
Finally, Outside has promised to calculate, report, and neutralize 100% of Outerverse’s overall carbon dioxide emissions. The action is Company-wide carbon neutral By the end of 2026.
So does it work?
It is unclear if the outer berth will spawn as an antithesis in the metaverse, but the user will determine if it will spawn. A new external position as a Medes empire will undoubtedly stimulate its progress.
One of the recent proofs of a fast-growing company is that it is ready to analyze resources to actively develop new projects.
But in the end, whether Outerverse helps people get out and live a “real” life is summarized in the same gambit as usual. That is, the individual decision to leave the device and go out.
And it’s not an Outside knock.It usually requires a lot of effort To change the world.. Other than monetization, it’s unclear how Outerverse differs from current social media challenges and brand partner giveaways.
It’s up to the Outside pros to show the way — and they certainly sound excited.
“All collections from creators, renowned athletes, photographers, brands and nonprofits are hard-coded with perks designed to go out, shed blood and move your feet. “Thurston repeated.
“Sometimes you need to move little by little to get to a chilly morning. Our NFT offers digital caffeine that offers interactive rewards for peak hunts, trail maintenance, new personal vests, sleep and even meditation. Offers.”
