Rapid Growth Attributed to Browser-Based Access and Headgear-Free Experience
LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$AP #AULT—Ault Alliance, Inc. (NYSE American: AULT) (“Ault Alliance”), a diversified holding company, and BitNile Metaverse, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNMV) (“BitNile Metaverse” or the “Company”), the company operating the rapidly growing virtual world, BITNILE.com (the “Platform”), announce that the Platform has surpassed 500,000 active users in less than one month since launching its early-access phase. This impressive growth, even with limited content and graphics, showcases the Platform’s global appeal and demonstrates the potential to be a significant contender in the metaverse space. BitNile Metaverse, through its wholly owned subsidiary BitNile.com, Inc. (“BNI”), owns and operates the Platform.
BitNile Metaverse attributes this growth to two key factors:
- The Platform is accessible via any device using any web browser, without requiring permissions, downloads, or apps; and
- The 3D Platform can be enjoyed without the need for bulky and costly virtual reality headsets.
“All you need are your eyes and a screen,” says Founder and Executive Chairman of Ault Alliance, Milton “Todd” Ault, III. “The feats that the Platform has achieved thus far, and what we hope to accomplish, are truly remarkable.”
The Company announced last week that three new games and three new in-world features will be added to the Platform within the next 30 days. The Company believes these additions will not only expand the range of experiences available to users but also contribute to the continued growth and development of the Platform.
Douglas Gintz, President of BNI, stated, “Our users have been instrumental in our Platform’s success, offering invaluable insights and feedback. Their contributions have empowered our developers to rapidly and consistently refine and enhance every aspect of the Platform.”
Launched on March 1, 2023, the Platform currently provides a preview of the foundational world and related activities. New features and functionalities will be added weekly, encompassing 3D immersive games, eCommerce, live streaming entertainment, and social networking. The Platform is working on implementing a tiered rewards system to encourage users to visit frequently and stay for extended periods. Advertisers are anticipated to benefit from increased “stickiness” and inventive advertising models unique to the Platform.
The Company’s dedication to improving the user experience across the Platform via ongoing innovation and expansion is expected to further solidify its position within the metaverse market. As the number of users continues to grow, the Platform is poised to become a premier destination for those seeking a truly immersive and interconnected virtual world.
