top 7 AR/VR projects according to KuCoin


In June, Apple held a conference for developers WWDC 2023. The main event of the event was the presentation of the Vision Pro augmented reality headset.

According to KuCoin, the new product reflects Apple’s desire to rethink the interaction with digital content, and its release will contribute to the influx of users into cryptocurrency projects at the intersection of blockchain and AR / VR technologies.

Together with trading platform analysts, we talk about the history of virtual and augmented reality, technology prospects and AR/VR tokens worth investing in in 2023.

History and Perspectives of Mixed Reality

Augmented reality (AR) overlays digital graphics on the real world, while virtual reality (VR) creates a separate environment for interaction with users.

The first VR devices were released by Magic Leap and Oculus VR (now owned by Meta) in the early 2010s. They were intended for visualization of 3D projects and the gaming industry.

It seemed that in the coming years, a virtual reality helmet would become as familiar a gadget as a smartphone. However, a decade later, we still haven’t seen the VR revolution.

About five years ago, technology companies became interested in the market. Meta Quest 2 devices, Microsoft HoloLens and Valve Index devices appeared on sale.

According to Statista, there are currently 98 million and 23 million VR and AR users, respectively. The service predicts that by 2027 the number of market participants will exceed 200 million.

By 2027, the AR/VR market will increase by almost 50%. Data: Statista.

Mixed reality technologies are already applied in several areas:

  • gaming – provide a unique experience with full immersion in the game world;
  • education – increase student engagement by allowing them to visualize complex concepts and historical events, conduct scientific experiments and participate in interactive simulations;
  • healthcare – accelerate the training of medical workers and the rehabilitation of patients;
  • crypto payments – make transactions in the metaverse more secure through biometric authentication through facial recognition or iris scanning.

With the increasing availability of AR/VR devices, more people will be able to travel across the metaverse and attend events, regardless of physical location.
