Everyrealm is best known  for its vast metaverse real estate holdings and  developments in leading metaverse platforms including the Sandbox, Decentraland and  23 others.

Everyrealm creates innovative and addictive social spaces that are futuristic and  interactive like video games but still familiar to a mainstream audience, by invoking real-world architecture, culture and  events. Everyrealm is developing this interactive content across many genres, including sports, education, fashion, gaming, art and  social experiences–all designed to draw users to the metaverse. We are also creating the infrastructure required to distribute that interactive content to a global, mainstream audience,” said Janine Yorio, CEO of Everyrealm.
