Triller, a short-video business, has acquired an interest in the metaverse with the launch of a new platform called Metaverz on Monday.

According to Triller, Metaverz offers virtual spaces where users can interact with live music and sporting events, such as the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship or the Triller Fight Club.

The first event of the season will involve DJ Sam Feldt performing an electronic set from the Netherlands before departing into Metaverz''s virtual nightclub as an avatar to mingle with guests. This virtual performance is one of the 2,000 events Triller and its subsidiaries intend to host in the next year, mainly in the real world and in Metaverz.

"We''re concentrating on all of our events and experiences so people understand what they''re doing," says Metaverz''s head. "It''s not like you walk around aimlessly,... You get to engage around an event."

Metaverz will compete with deeper-resourced competitors like Meta Platforms, which has spent billions on creating an immersive digital environment in which people would socialize, play games, and work. According to the Wall Street Journal, its flagship game, Horizon Worlds, has struggled to gain a reputation, attracting just 200,000 users.

Triller demonstrated off virtual environments the company spent the last two-plus years building, including a sports arena, beach houses surrounded by palm trees, and a nightclub with projection screens, laser lights, and marble floors. There are also seating areas that allow users to interact as avatars or via livestreamed video that appears in a dialogue box on the screen.

The Metaverz is available on any Internet-connected device or via a browser.

Epik is developing software that allows players to earn digital currencies, dubbed Illr Bucks, that is useful to purchase virtual clothing, customize their avatars, or purchase tickets to events hosted by Triller or its creators.

The Triller video sharing app was launched in its current format in October 2019 and is attempting to compete with TikTok, a smaller company that has expanded its content and capabilities. Verzuz, the live-streaming music platform founded by Grammy-winning producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, has added new content and features to the platform, thanks to acquisitions of Verzuz, which is based on Fangage, Julius, and, who have helped developers connect with and

Triller has recently raised $310 million (roughly Rs. 2,546 crore) from Global Emerging Markets, a Luxembourg-based private investment firm, in anticipation of going public as early as next month.

Mahi de Silva, Triller''s CEO, said the company is losing money, but is considering expanding its profitability by 2023.

Sony Music Entertainment, a world-class music business, filed a lawsuit against Triller in August, demanding millions of dollars in damages after the video-sharing app allegedly waived licensing fees in March 22. De Silva described the lawsuit as a legal process.

The Washington Post reported this summer that black influencers, who had been recruited to the platform a year ago with promises of $4,000 (roughly Rs. 3,28,585) per month, believed that these payments were erratic and in some cases, inconsistent.

"We had a few flaws in the beginning of the year," de Silva said. "We are all up to date."

In 2022, Thomson Reuters will release its results.
