One of the trending topics is the metaverse and more specifically, the relationship that this new kind of technology has with virtual reality (VR) technologies. There have already been many different kinds of initiatives that utilize VR alongside metaverse-based efforts to provide new and innovative experiences, but the one industry that can, perhaps, most benefit from all of this is the tourism sector.

As the ongoing global pandemic continues, people from all over the world miss being able to freely travel to new places and other countries. However, thanks to a new metaverse project by Ariva, users will be given the chance to have a truly next-generation and seemingly unlimited traveling experience through which they could go anywhere they want virtually.

What is Ariva?

Ariva is a new blockchain platform that aims to improve upon the current tourist sector's inefficiencies by offering a next-generation blockchain-oriented ecosystem for the tourism and travel industry. As a result, it hopes to alter the global sector by incorporating cutting-edge products and services into its respective ecosystem.

According to its whitepaper, this is broken down into several key areas, namely Ariva.Club, Ariva.Finance, Ariva.World, and most recently, the Ariva metaverse. All of these are linked with one another, enabling increased interconnectivity and allowing visitors and travelers alike to have a one-of-a-kind experience enabled through the intuitive use of blockchain technology. 

As mentioned, the team recently launched a metaverse project named Ariva Wonderland, with land sales set to begin towards the end of January. The goal of the Ariva metaverse project is to combine the themes of travel and VR in the cryptocurrency space to create a second life fit for an evolving tourist enterprise. Users shall henceforward be allowed to enjoy a new generation of digital tourism filled with seemingly limitless future travel experiences, which is certainly going to be quite beneficial as nobody knows when the current pandemic will end and so the metaverse and VR are going to play an increasingly important role for the foreseeable future.

Accomplishments, listings and future goals

Ariva has released the Ariva.Finance staking pool ecosystem (Ariva Staking Factory — ASF), which is presently operational and its users have since staked over 10 billion ARV in a very short time. The team also announced that a crypto payment gateway, Ariva Liquidity Farming and Lottery options will be coming to Ariva.Finance very soon. Additionally, the team has created a nonfungible token (NFT) Art series named Arivaman and is currently pursuing a surprise listing.

Furthermore, the number of holders has surpassed 160,000 and social media followers have more than doubled as well. As if that weren't enough, a six-month marketing campaign agreement with Nasdaq has been reached. In this regard, TV interviews and billboards featuring Ariva shall be released in New York and on Jan. 16, Newsmax will air the first interview. 

Finally, not only did ARV receive a blue tick on BscScan and have banner ads approved there and on Etherscan, but a 6.36 billion token burn had been accomplished by the team and listings on MEXC Global, AAX, Liquid Global and Bittrex Global have all been finalized.  Currently, the Arivaman NFT series is on its way along with the land sales for the metaverse project, which is also set to take precedence for the future.
