This enables users to track, interact and collaborate with virtual assets across all platforms and devices. It also lets you purchase virtual assets and transfer them between any virtual world or real-world location. This works because we enable any physical or virtual space to become a webspace that has a unique spatial address or Spatial URL. These SURLs enable an address to exist at any point in space, whether you are in a virtual or geo-location, you can locate any person or thing in space, subject to any blockchain-secured privacy or permissions rules.
