Everdome, the most hyper-realistic metaverse, has named Dr. Marwan Alzarouni as its Official Advisor. Dr. Alzarouni, an internationally recognized blockchain technology advocate, joins the team at a critical juncture in the company’s three-phase launch.
Dr. Alzarouni is well-known for his work as the CEO of the Dubai Blockchain Center, as well as the Managing Partner of the innovation consulting firm Accelliance. He was chosen to lead the Digital Asset Task Force (DATF), a research and advisory team that reports to the Dubai Future Council for Blockchain, due to his extensive experience in the field.
Dr. Alzarouni will be an invaluable asset to Everdome as an Official Advisor, bringing extensive experience in blockchain, digital transformation, and innovation.
Furthermore, Dr. Alzarouni will provide unparalleled insight into the Middle East’s shift toward blockchain and metaverse adoption, contributing to Everdome’s expansion strategy in the UAE and throughout the region.

Dr Alzarouni is a real asset with proven capabilities in our core focus area. He will help us to shape Everdome into a world-leading metaverse, creating exceptional value for players and investors alike.”
Dr Alzarouni said: “The metaverse is a natural evolution of our connected world, and technologies such as blockchain are at the heart of what will make the metaverse a success for everyone. Everdome in particular is an exciting project – the fact that it is breaking new ground and that it is rooted in the UAE, with Phase 1 of the game set in Hatta, are just two factors among many that encouraged me to join the project.”
Everdome, built on Unreal Engine 5, will provide a fully immersive web experience, drawing on the talents and vision of renowned concept artists, game creators, 3D designers, Hollywood VFX specialists, urban planning professionals, a development team that has been delivering graphics and effects for more than a decade, and a marketing team that has already found boundless success in a variety of industries.
Everdome Phase 1 includes the pre-launch phase, set in Hatta, during which users can explore the launch room and learn more about space exploration and the journey to come. Phases 2 and 3 continue the Everdome journey, from mission launch and life aboard the vessel, through to landing and settling on Mars.
