FluffAR’s network uses a proof of engagement system to verify the users on the blockchain. The AR technology used on this platform works using a 9-axis sensor fusion engine created by Candy Lab with a single code base. This is used to create a system in which you can manage all the locations, tokens and data of the platform. The software uses Unity and ARFuse.
The FluffAR app will have its own wallet in which you can store the tokens that you find along the way, a leader board that will show the people who are getting more tokens and will work with both iOS and Android.
If you are a company, you will be able to obtain data and statistics from your campaign and gamify the experience. This will allow you to increase the exposure of your brand and to create experiences that will attract more customers while you gather data about them. The company will also promote events that can help you to get more exposure.
