BUDAPEST and BARCELONA – Visualizing and booking your next vacation just got much easier. Next Earth, the unicorn, sustainability-focused Metaverse with more than 45,000 virtual land owners, announced that it has signed a partnership with Iomob, the pioneering blockchain company developing a decentralized protocol for the world’s first Mobility Marketplace Network and token. The new partnership is through Limitless, the Metaverse integrator and go-to full stack solution for established brands and startups, and will pair Iomob and Next Earth seamlessly.
The strategic alliance, which also includes the socially responsible Vueling Airlines, will collaborate in the development of tools and services enabling “Next Earthians” to visualize and plan real-Earth journeys. Users will now be able to track carbon emissions and book “carbon positive” transportation via the Metaverse and Iomob’s companion app.
“Next Earth and Iomob are simply the perfect match and use case,” says Gabor Retfalvi, CEO of Next Earth. “Developing methods to visualize and experience sustainable travel within Next Earth fundamentally aligns with the natural evolution that is at the core of our environment. This is a wonderful next step for our company’s platform and evolution.”
Next Earth’s partnership with Iomob and Vueling Airlines – the first airline to enable bookings through the Metaverse – melds several unique entities with the potential to significantly and positively impact environmental challenges. Iomob is a “real world” transportation company that helps users plan A-to-B journeys while allowing you to schedule a range of services such as taxis, scooters, transit, parking and more. Vueling Airlines will add the ability of booking real flights in Next Earth and then accessing them via a companion mobile app using QR codes. The new partnership falls under
“We are working alongside Next Earth to create the transportation infrastructure that enables a more exciting, purposeful and immersive way to traverse the planet,” said Boyd Cohen, CEO of Iomob. “Airlines are actively strategizing about how to bring their presence into the Metaverse, so extending our relationship with Vueling Airlines to augment their Web3 bookings is a fantastic initiative for everyone.”
Next Earth is becoming the center of the Metaversal Industrial Revolution with its unique, 1-to-1 recreation of the Earth. Iomob, meanwhile, recently announced investments from True Global Ventures, A100x and Creas. Along with Vueling Airlines, this new venture makes intermodal mobility more accessible by tapping into 7,000 taxi fleets, micro-mobility in more than 270 cities, thousands of parking spaces and 480+ public transit feeds.
“Visualizing real-world journeys and the carbon footprint for each leg, in addition to using a Metaverse interface to select and book the least environmentally harmful trip, has never been done before,” said Jesus Monzo, Distribution Strategy and Alliances Manager of Vueling.
