Augmented Reality game Pokemon Go has been download an astonishing 750 million times to date. In the process it has generated over $1.2 billion in revenue.
The success of Pokemon Go isn’t an isolated event. Rather it heralds the arrival of a technology that will soon have a huge impact on most peoples every day lives – Augmented Reality (AR).
AR creates an enhanced version of reality by augmenting computer generated images and sounds into a users view of the real world.

AR is also about to meet one of the other major technological trends of this decade – Blockchains.
Arcona is an augmented reality ecosystem powered by the blockchain. By bringing together the real and virtual worlds it is creating an augmented reality layer called “Digital Land”.
Arcona is designed for day to day use. Users will be able to create the real world space around them by using headsets like Hololens or even their tablet or smartphone and then interacting with the digital land.
In this digital land users will be able to rent out land and then do business from within the AR platform. Holders of the Arcona token will be able buy, sell, rent or lease land. Arcona token holders will also be to sell 3D content or software to the other users or landowners. The Arcona can also be used to buy games and professional services or to visit special venues.
