Deep in the heart of Europe, a young architect named Christian Schlag is making waves in the tech world. Born in a small village near Stuttgart, Germany, and currently studying architecture at the University of Liechtenstein, Christian is the founder of a startup called V3chta, a company that brings together architecture, blockchain, and the metaverse.
Inspired by his childhood fascination with shapes and buildings, Christian’s journey has led him from rural Germany to Edinburgh, and now Liechtenstein, where he balances studying architecture with running his ambitious startup.
V3chta is a visionary project that seeks to define and create three-dimensional virtual spaces in the emerging concept of the metaverse. Through his work, Christian hopes to make the metaverse as accessible as possible for businesses and individuals, offering them a chance to explore, work, and relax in new and exciting environments.
One of V3chta’s standout projects, ArC, is a testament to this vision. ArC was a fully virtual design exhibition, showcasing works from five incredible artists. The exhibition remains open to the public via spatial.io, drawing participation from viewers around the world who attended the opening in virtual reality.
Drawing inspiration from innovative giants such as Elon Musk and Tim Cook, Christian understands the challenges that come with pioneering a market that is yet to fully materialize. However, he sees these challenges as opportunities to create solutions for a problem not yet fully realized by the public.
Despite being a relatively new entrant to the market since its establishment in December 2022, V3chta has already built a strong network in this niche and aims to incorporate other platforms into its own to offer a wide variety of applications to customers. They’re not just building virtual spaces, but they’re building connections, too.
The future of V3chta promises a myriad of exciting ventures. From creating spaces for virtual fashion, furniture, and even architecture itself, to developing a blockchain implementation and launching a marketplace. The startup is also planning to make its presence felt at blockchain and web3.0 events to generate more interest in V3chta.
V3chta’s most recent projects include a church project designed to foster awareness of digital religion, a fashion exhibition space, and a virtual showroom. Through these projects, Christian and his team at V3chta are slowly but surely shaping the future of the metaverse, one virtual space at a time.
