3.2. Demand-Pull: Metaverse Participants
The eventual adoption of virtual worlds heavily depend on the rate of participation from its underlying users — in this case, the amount of user-generated content. In the current landscape however, ordinary users remain locked out from the creative process due to the fact that there exists a large skill gap to even generate a single 3D asset for use in a virtual world, let alone across the Metaverse.

Reitio eliminates the steep learning curve associated with creating a 3D asset, empowering users to create 3D renditions of their own imaginations and bring them to life on their virtual world of choice, instead of getting intimidated before they even started. Being a fully web-based solution, Reitio's mix-and-match, templates-oriented approach to 3D design ensures that the toolkit is intuitive enough to be picked up by anyone within a few minutes — the Canva for 3D assets.
A Reitio-generated 3D asset is fundamentally made up of templates stacked on top of each other — like Lego blocks. Templates come in different flavours: free default templates are provided in-house by our internal designers, while premium templates are listed by community contributors or our virtual world partners, whereby each instance of usage will subject users to a pay-per-use royalty payment to the template creator.
The whole design experience is comparable to creating Lego structures: users start by choosing a ‘base’ template, then gradually work their way up — the extent of what defines a “finished” 3D design will ultimately depend on the user itself, just like the extent of what constitutes a “completed” Lego structure will be in the hands of that structure’s builder. This design philosophy is what allows Reitio to be extremely user-friendly without sacrificing much of the variability and extensibility offered by more complex fully-fledged 3D editors.

On the other hand, our extensive integrations with various web3 virtual worlds will allow users to deploy their created 3D assets into their virtual world of choice straight from the Reitio web app, ensuring a smooth WYSIWYG [11] design-to-deployment experience for users. In addition, Reitio-generated 3D assets could also be exported to a user’s local drive — allowing them to be brought to life even on virtual worlds not natively supported (yet) on Reitio.
Finally, a Reitio account will entitle users to their own profile, where they will be able to view all their Reitio-generated 3D assets no matter if the 3D design is still an in-progress draft (which they can continue where they left off), or if it is an already exported/deployed item. Plus, a Reitio account will grant users access to their very own “Hegion pod” (more on section 3.6.), a fully customizable virtual space which acts as a personal gallery for users to showcase their 3D assets.
To create a Reitio account, users would only need to connect their web3 wallet into the platform — for non web3 users, our fiat on-ramp partners will allow for ‘traditional’ authentication methods (ex: ”sign in with email”, “sign in with Google”, etc.), such that it allows them to access the platform without a web3 wallet, albeit via a trusted intermediary entity.
