What is the metaverse?” This question has been asked a lot lately. The word “Metaverse” means something beyond the universe since the word Meta in Greek means beyond.
Theoretically, we have multiple universes in the cosmos, including the one we live in.
Whether these universes are parallel to ours or not, this concept of multiple universes is called the “multiverse.”
In virtual reality, each simulation, application, or game can be considered one universe. An entire collection of multiple such simulations or applications can be called a Metaverse.
We can see today only the start, but the metaverse is designed to be more than simply a collection of gaming universes. It’s a hybrid of virtual and augmented reality and physical reality. Read full article here
Check out the latest Dell’s 2k QHD resolution webcam and built in mic
Dell has announced a new webcam. It features QHD video quality, a premium metal body, and a built-in microphone.
The new model, dubbed the Dell pro 2K Webcam, sits below the company’s flagship 4K Webcam, but incorporates a similar high-end aesthetic and is stable in one key respect.
This more modest resolution helps it hit a lower price of $134.99, but thankfully Dell squeezed in a noise-reducing microphone at this price point — correcting the biggest omission from the 4K model. This new camera is available globally today.
The cylindrical webcam sits on top of any monitor using a universal mount and is powered via the integrated USB-A cable.
According to Dell, the camera can handle a maximum video resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels (also known as 2K or QHD) and uses image processing to apply HDR (high dynamic range) to the video, highlights and shadows when used in poorly lit environments, such as in front of a window.
One of the key features of the new Dell webcam, and one that it shares with its more expensive 4K version, is auto-framing. It uses artificial intelligence to zoom in slightly on the subject (i.e. you), then pans and zooms to keep you centered in the frame.
The Dell pro 2K webcam also offers two fields of view (65 and 78 degrees), and the Sony starvis imaging sensor delivers 2K/QHD video at 30 or 24 frames per second and 1,080-pixel Full HD at 60 can be output with , 30 or 24fps. A 720px HD option is also available and has the same three frame rate options as 1,080px.
The autofocus lens has an aperture of f/2.0 and has a 4x digital zoom. The camera is powered by a 1.5m long fixed USB-A cable. Of course, being fixed means you can’t remove it, and since it’s USB-A, people using laptops with only USB-C cables (like the Apple MacBook Air) must use a dongle.
Being limited to USB-A and having to go the route of adapters or dongles for USB-C compatibility is a bit of a sour point, but the Pro Webcam seems to make fair compromises for that lower price. Ultimately, the picture and sound quality will most likely determine if this is the better buy over the 4K version or competing options from the likes of Logitech, Microsoft, Razer, and others.
DUREX – Safe sex in the Metaverse
Famous condom company Durex is all set to enter the metaverse and join the non-fungible token (NFT) space.
Mike Kondoudis, a licensed trademark attorney at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), tweeted on July 29, 2022, that the proprietor of Durex has filed a trademark application combining NFTs and cryptocurrencies.
Durex has not yet provided any specific details as to when or how it will make its first foray into the metaverse and NFT realms. However, the company’s patent application outlines aspects of cryptocurrency mining, virtual condoms, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, downloadable media files, and financial services with cryptocurrencies.
The sudden increase in trademark filings demonstrates how Web3’s future is rapidly expanding. Regardless of industry, the emergence of NFTs and the metaverse is appealing to everyone.
In recent weeks and months, there has been a rise in the level of interest shown in the metaverse by businesses of a medium and big scale. More than 3,300 patents associated with the metaverse have been registered with the USPTO by brands from around the world as of this point in 2022.
NIKE, Stella Artois, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton are some of the most well-known firms in the world, and all of them have taken active measures toward expanding their presence in the metaverse
The XFL, a minor professional football league in the United States, has submitted a trademark application for the word “XFL,” signaling that it has aspirations to enter the metaverse and the realm of non-fungible tokens. This news comes after the XFL filed the application for the name “XFL” (NFTs).
The company wants to include an NFT marketplace, virtual goods, and experiences in its future plans, according to its trademark application. The company will offer these.
The metaverse is still in the concept stage. While many big players in the tech industry are trying to define the metaverse and build a foundation, skeptics caution that there’s no clear way to determine in which direction the metaverse will develop.
According to Verified Market Research, the Metaverse market size was USD 27.21 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $824.53 billion by 2030. It is no surprise that businesses are scrambling to expand their market potential in the digital world.
FansRevenue – Making content creators the ambassadors of tomorrow
The emergence of influencer networks, micro-influencers and in-house programs bring a fresh wave of legal and ethical challenges to address.
Several industry players have shared their perspectives, and most agree on unavoidable principles. Still, only a few have decided to take a stand and make them the heart and soul of their business model.
For FansRevenue, experience shows that an honest and transparent approach benefits everyone, maximizing sales and customer satisfaction.
Spreading a clear message and preserving both influencers’ and brands’ trustworthiness are the only way to lead the next phase of influencer marketing and make today’s content creators the ambassadors of tomorrow.
How did FansRevenue come alive? And what was your purpose when you first started this type of business?
Influencer marketing is one of today’s fastest and most effective ways to increase brand exposure and boost sales online.
Content Creators are becoming professionals and entrepreneurs with a massive audience base, and business opportunities are flourishing exponentially for them.
So those Creators are on the lookout for perfect matches: partnership opportunities with brands that share their values and beliefs, allowing them to remain authentic to themselves, engage their fans with exciting content and earn serious money.
However, complexity and challenges await them along the way. Behind the scenes, a lot of back and forth may occur before an agreement is signed between the Influencer and the Advertiser, as such partnerships imply many legal and fiscal considerations.
Finding the right brands that fit your values is not as easy as it seems, and the process of contacting them, negotiating and completing all the paperwork can often be as overwhelming as it sounds.
In that spirit, being here to help Creators overcome these challenges and ease their path to new levels of success is what FansRevenue is all about. We want them to have all the tools and support they need to reach their desired level of success.
It has been one year since we first introduced FansRevenue, and since then, the Creators and Advertisers we work with haven’t ceased to confirm the validity of our existence.
What distinguishes FansRevenue from other influencer-marketing-focused agencies and platforms?
We believe every voice has the power to bring brand value and positive changes.
For this reason, we aim to support Creators at every step of their journey and make sure they earn maximum revenue doing what they already do.
I like to say that FansRevenue is the perfect medium between a platform and an agency, combining the forces of Affiliate and Influencer marketing for a powerful 360 digital marketing expertise that benefits our partners.

With this approach, FansRevenue hopes to inspire the industry and blaze a trail for the years to come.

A powerful example of successful Influencer marketing is how FansRevenue helped BlueChew leverage the power of Influencers and humor to raise awareness and destigmatize erectile dysfunction among young American adults.
Not only did FansRevenue and BlueChew overcome the challenges associated with promoting chewable ED treatments, but conversions and awareness (for both the advertiser and the influencers) went through the roof.
This case has also allowed FansRevenue to win the Best Social Commerce Campaigns prize at the Influencer Marketing Awards 2022, besides IKEA and Mastercard!
