For Projects and Developers

The Illust AR application serves projects and developers a unique way to deliver engaging stories, messages, and experiences at scale. The following is a shortlist of some of the benefits a project or 3rd party developer receives when building on top of Illust's platform:

  • Adaptable: the Illust AR system was built so that our partners could construct new experiences from primitive building blocks. By mixing and matching feature sets on the Illust App, projects and developers can create their experiences in the world like Lego Blocks.

  • World Wide Scale: the Illust AR application is rendered in a mobile phone's web browser and is accessible through a URL. Pair this with the ability to content geofence anywhere in the world, projects and developers can seamlessly deliver experiences at the click of a button.

  • Simple to Use: out of the box smart contracts, configurable PoPs, and free geofencing tools give projects configuring an experience on the application an easy-to-use sandbox to construct elaborate events in the application.

  • Keep your Experiences Fresh: Illust AR supports many different photo, video, 3D, and audio formats and is expanding its repertoire to include games, AI, and more. By working with Illust, you'll be keeping your audience guessing and engaged.

  • Connect with New Fans: projects and users of the application can benefit from the cross- pollination of different use cases. Connect with new audiences who are already in the world.

For Artists, Creators, and Art Institutions

Artists and creators using the Illust AR platform find the following benefits:

  • Increased Visibility: the Illust application offers new ways for artists and their work to be discovered. As there are limited barriers to entry, artists can easily geofence their works in areas that were previously off-limits areas.

  • Express your Creativity: creators have flexibility in how their creations are displayed.

  • Think Locally: visitors who check in at your experience can be rewarded with a Proof of Presence token. These tokens can be used to token-gate Discord channels, merch stores, and more.
