When or before you start using Flipverse, you will most probably come across a set of few terms that you must know to understand what Flipkart’s Flipverse platform is actually.

  • Web3: Flipkart’s Flipverse works in the world of Web3. Currently, the web version most of us use is Web2. Web3 includes concepts such as decentralization, blockchain technologies, and token-based economics.


  • Immersive shopping: Immersive shopping as the name suggest incorporates technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR), AI, and Augmented Reality to upgrade the customer shopping experience. Flipkart’s Flipverse will provide an immersive shopping experience to users.


  • Avatars: In Flipkart’s Flipverse virtual platform, you would exist as a digital twin & have a customizable avatar. You may customize your avatar and make it look just like you or you can make your avatar look entirely different.


  • Digital Collectibles: You’ll come across this term quite a lot when using the Flipkart metaverse platform Flipverse. In Flipverse, digital collectibles would mean NFTs. They can be present in different forms such as Strand and other digital items.


  • Strand: In Flipverse, a Strand means an NFT which you can claim to create your digital avatar and make Flipverse your “own virtual world.” Flipkart was also offering up to 500 Supercoins for successfully completing your KYC on Firedrops.


  • Firedrops: Firedrops by Flipkart is a newly launched feature on the Flipkart app. Firedrops by Flipkart allows you to have your own wallet which is important for storing, trading, and collecting NFTs. Flipverse by Flipkart is going to launch on the Firedrops platform in the Flipkart app, live today 18th October evening at 7 PM on the Flipkart Linkedin page.
