Utherverse pioneered the metaverse (Virtual World Web) with the launch of our first platform in 2005.

Since then, Utherverse worlds have serviced millions of users. Our 3rd generation platform is preparing to be beta tested shortly and populated within a few months. Our patented technology is years ahead of the competition.

The Shuster Meta Patent Family

The Utherverse owned and licensed patent portfolio, known as the “The Shuster Meta Patent Family”, comprises critical technological processes and methods necessary to operate a “metaverse”. In many ways, we are the founders of the metaverse and we will be forever tied to the development and prosperity of the meta-era.


Our virtual economy, established in 2007, still operates successfully to this day with over 32 billion transactions and the equivalent 15 billion dollars transacted.

Our 15 years of virtual economic governance give us critical insight into the operation and maintenance of a successful metaverse economy. The Utherverse has stood toe to toe with all previous Web 3.D competitors and outlasted them all: There.com, Google Lively, Project Sansar and dozens of others. Today we renew our commitment to rise up as the standard bearer for a brighter future in the metaverse.
