Doss gives an immersive no-code platform on mobile to a large number of GenZs creators to build and share metaverses with their communities to come and explore. A key metric validating its mobile first approach is that PC penetration is less than 20% in the GenZ population globally. Doss already has 5000+ creators in the waitlist and 300+ metaverses created in private beta.
