An Infrastructure for Web3

The openverse network is an infrastructure, to establish next generation internet that "data sovereignty returns to everyone"

The Hub for Blockchains

The Openverse Network is an hub, which empower you send values(Tokens/NFTs, etc) between blockchains like sending an email.

Protocols for Metaverses

The Openverse Network is building a series of standards and protocols to promote the social cooperation between the metaverses.

Openverse Network


Openverse is a hub network based on blockchain technology. The most important ability is to realize: Value(Tokens/NFTs/Messages) transmission is just as simple as sending an email between the different metaverses and blockchains which joined in or connected with the openverse-based.

Openverse is not a competitor to Ethereum. It embraces Ethereum. Some projects like SDK or Bridge allow you to bring ETH and ERC20 tokens over to the openverse network and send Openverse IBC tokens into the Ethereum ecosystem. Other Openverse projects include Ethermint that brings the Ethereum Virtual Machine to Openverse and Sommelier Finance that reduces Ethereum transaction costs for decentralized finance (DeFi) applications.

Mission & Vision

After about 3 to 20 years of efforts infuture, Openverse hopes to provide services for social coordination with the following mission and vision as its goal.


An Infrastructure for Web3

We are in the era of switching from the centralized Internet, that is, Web 2.0, to the decentralized Web3. Under the concept of Web 3.0, the ownership of digital content created by users is clearly owned and controlled by users, and the value created will also be distributed according to the agreements signed by users and others. We need a world-wide web3 infrastructure.


The Hub for Blockchains

Under current circumstances, each blockchain network has formed its own ecosystem and small society, and is an island of value. Many teams have developed a large number of bridges and protocols to link various networks. On this basis, we are carrying out the next step of development. Through the interchain communication protocols, different blockchain networks can communicate securely.


Protocols for Metaverses

Like the communication between blockchain networks, all meta-universe ecosystems also need to be interconnected. The connection is based on mutually accepted standards and protocols. The Openverse Team attempts to collect and sort out scattered protocols, form a unified protocol series of the metauniverse, break through various information islands, and let users hold value to flow.

Openverse network


Through the following features, especially the concept of openness, Openverse will attract more ecosystems to join the entire system.



Just like websites have domain names, metaverses and blockchains will have names. These names will be managed on the openverse network, which will operate a Universe Name Service.



Universe Identify(UID) are the account standard of the IBC-enabled world. Essentially, they allow metaverses to securely control accounts on other metaverses over IBC.



The IBC application layer can be used to build a wide range of cross-chain applications, including but not limited to token transfers, interchain accounts, non-fungible token transfers and oracle data feeds.



The U.T. (Universe Time) purpose is the united time scale of the metaverses, like A.D. (Anno Domini) and B.C.(Before Christ) for human world, timestamp for computer and internet.

Decentralized autonomy is achieved through community voting mechanism, Byzantine consensus and staking validators.

Off-Chain Proposal

It's very important to give a proposal time off-chain to receive feedback, input, and edits before going on-chain and asking for votes.

On-Chain Proposal

The openverse has an on-chain governance mechanism for signaling, changing consensus parameters, and spending funds from the community pool.

Network consensus

The underlying technology behind Openverse is the Tendermint Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) consensus algorithm, which is designed to ensure finality, order consistency, and optional availability.


Staking is the process of locking up a digital asset (Bitgold in the case of the openverse network) to provide economic security for a public blockchain.

Nodes all over the world

Validators and service nodes provide a consensus basis for the network, maintain network security, and provide access point services.
