Peer Inc is a technology company that focuses on consumer electronics, software, and services for the augmented reality metaverse.
Not only does Peer aim to shatter the status quo by innovating and driving mass adoption like Bill Gates; who brought a PC to every desktop, but Peer also wants to deliver elegant, ease of use which is a relentless focus on the user like what Steve Jobs did with Apple.
What Is Peer?
Founded in 2021 by Tony Tran, Peer is a Web3 social network and metaverse ecosystem, built on top of its own high throughput blockchain that is designed to be even faster than Solana and Avalanche.
The internet has been developed over the past 30 years and Web3 now is its next generation. With the next generation of the internet, users not only can own their data but also port them to multiple applications.
In addition, creators can be paid via token rewards. Web3 allows the creation of all new media formats never before possible. Also, new business models will not be reliant on advertising.
In Web3, users own their entire digital footprint, which Peer calls the Decentralized Federated Identity (DFI).
Users will be able to create public utilities like access tokens to their data, therefore, they won’t need to share their DFI with each service they sign up with. This also helps to decrease their vulnerability on the net.
Services people want to use will require the token, which they’ll share, and they even can revoke access at will. People will own their digital wallets and their wallets will contact the application data.
Web3 is bringing a decentralized alternative where we are all users, owners, and developers. We all benefit together from network implementation.
Get Ready for Innovation
Peer is the first vertically integrated blockchain stack with L1-L4 built from the ground up for a holistic blockchain ecosystem that’s designed with the expressed purpose of building the metaverse.
Its L1 is a patented, multi-blockchain, proof of activity implementation #US11463397B2, which is expected to reach speeds of millions of transactions per second to support its novel metaverse ecosystem.
Through a vertically integrated ecosystem that contains the entire blockchain stack and services, Peer will enable crypto mass adoption. Peer’s coherent product experiences will make blockchain technology useful and relevant to everyday life.
The platform is built using the benefits of a broad and deep IP portfolio that spans both utility and design patents in both software and hardware. Further, the platform was developed free of VC influence.
Peer is building the world wide web of tomorrow by bringing the power of AR to the blockchain.
Imagine an entirely new type of social network where the whole point is not only to go outside with your phone, smartwatch, or Augmented Reality (AR) glasses but to also interact with digital content that was posted into a specific place in the real world by your friends, other creators, and businesses.
Yes, Peer is making the web available to you in Augmented Reality. As a result, content is no longer at the tip of your finger, it’s at first sight.

How to Get Started with Peer
Peer’s blockchain is the world’s first distributed ledger designed specifically to support Web3 and the metaverse. In addition to its incredible speed, Peer’s blockchain uses Nominated Proof-of-Stake to deliver scalability and cross-chain compatibility with a sustainable footprint.
Developers will be able to build decentralized applications on top of Peer using Rust, an open-source systems programming language designed for outstanding concurrency, speed, performance, and reliability.
Peer technology allows users to connect to the real world instead of scrolling an endless news feed. Simply open the superapp and Peer into the world. You can seamlessly transition from map mode to AR mode as you walk around.
All contents will live on the Peer blockchain and be tagged to a place, a time, and a person. Your data will be your data.
You will need its native token, the Peer Metaverse Coin (PMC), to use the app, refer your friends, and post content.
The Superapp will use its high-speed blockchain to allow you to have an encrypted version of your own data to maintain control of your information.
In essence, Peer is building a digital twin of the real world. By posting content to physical locations mapped and geolocated in the real world, you and other users can go out into the real world and find and interact with that content.It makes social media a fun gamified experience where people are actually moving around as a result of this convergence of the digital world with the physical world.
What Makes Peer Special?
Peer is not competing with anyone because it is building towards a vision that no one else has.
Today, the internet is in the midst of a revolution and the world must prepare to welcome a new cycle of convergence. Peer is right on time with an innovative approach to making the metaverse accessible to the masses. To date, the company has filed over 110 patents and raised more than $17M in a private placement.
What’s cool is Peer allows you to go to a location in real life or “teleport” anywhere in the world instantly using its app.
Let’s say you want to see what’s happening at Central Park in advance of a trip you are planning to New York. You could teleport there digitally and see all the discounts in that area within a distance radius.
Also, you could teleport to other major news events to see what is happening at this moment, what occurred in the past, or what is scheduled to happen in the future.
By using a phone, watch, or AR glasses, you can see content overlaid on top of the real world regardless of whether you are physically there or not.
Instead of being addicted to an endless news feed that gets you watching videos for hours but not actually going out and interacting in the world, Peer gets you out into the real world, interacting with people and experiences. With Peer, you will be able to reach out and touch the internet.
Peer: Get Ready
In order to create a new generation of the world wide web, Peer is building a gamified digital layer on top of the real world.
Peer will profoundly change the way people experience the world wide web. It will be exciting to see how we all benefit from the convergence of the digital and physical worlds. To learn more about Peer – just click here!
