One million OVER users – how we got here

One million OVER users – how we got here


The facts, figures and highlights from four incredible years (yep, just four years!)

In January 2019, founders Davide Cuttini and Diego Di Tommaso published the OVR White Paper – a document outlining their vision for the ultimate AR metaverse. Ambitious as the white paper and its roadmap were, neither Davide or Diego could have predicted the phenomenal growth that recently culminated in the OVER metaverse reaching one million global users.
