We chose oncyber to host the Everyrealm Collection gallery. Read on to learn more about the platform and how artists are using it to bring their collections to life.



NFT technology has revolutionized ownership of digital assets, creating new business models for artists and auction houses. Early on, however, creators were limited to social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram to put their work on display. Now we’re seeing the rise of metaverse curation platforms like oncyber that function as high-fidelity galleries to showcase digital assets. 


oncyber has a few key selling points that have attracted artists and popular NFT projects to host galleries on their platform.

  • Shareability - Galleries can be accessed in any browser with a simple URL.
  • Immersion - Collectors can link their digital assets directly in the gallery, allowing users to view metadata and even trade without leaving the platform.
  • Monetization - 3D architects who design oncyber spaces are able to sell their creations to other collectors as templates.

A Leader in Digital Art Curation


oncyber has art curation in its DNA. Rayan Boutaleb – the platform’s founder – grew up in the art world and was an established curator of traditional fine art before catching the web3 bug and pursuing entrepreneurship full time. 

A large part of oncyber’s appeal lies in its accessibility. It features similar mechanics to platforms such as Spatial and Mona in that it allows users to publish virtual spaces or experiences for free.

This stands in stark contrast to some of the first mover metaverses like Decentraland and The Sandbox, where the path to owning a space requires purchasing it with real money in the form of tokens. Land scarcity and speculation are core aspects of those platforms’ design scheme, whereas the newer generation of metaverse curation platforms trend toward free and open access. 



Looking to get started on the platform? Here’s a quick guide to bring you up to speed:
