VR Technology, the founder of the OKOIN, is launching a new project based on the same name token – VR Casino OKO. This is the third blockchain project, which tokenomics is based on the OKOIN tokens. Two predecessors are VR Platform OKO (the platform for distributing interactive VR adult movies) and OKO Pay (the payment system for VR Technology partners through which they can accept OKOIN tokens for goods and services). It is noteworthy that all three projects are not interchangeable. Each of them is independent, and they work in parallel, thereby expanding the reach of the audience and increasing the value, stability and liquidity of the OKOIN token.
VR Casino OKO project
VR Casino OKO is a unique project that combines the atmosphere of the game in real casinos with the availability of online gambling and transparency of the blockchain. The project is based on the VR OKO helmet whose sales have already exceeded 70,000 units. In the future VR Technology plans to make the system available for other VR-devices (Oculus Rift, HTC VIve and others), provided that their hardware and software will meet the technical requirements of the project.
