What's On

According to Wikipedia, the metaverse is defined as "a hypothesized iteration of the Internet, supporting persistent online 3-D virtual environments through conventional personal computing, as well as virtual and augmented reality headsets." With recent advances in technology and growing enthusiasm amongst tech titans such as the formerly-named Facebook, the metaverse is no longer just a hypothesis and more than a buzzword.

As the metaverse continues to gain popularity, how should businesses position themselves for a novel way to interact with each other, users and content online? What exactly is the metaverse? How might the application of Play-to-Earn (P2E) and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) in the metaverse change the way we run businesses?

Join us on 10 February 2022, when Zaf Chow, Director of Digital Strategy and Partnerships of Animoca Brands, will share with us how the company's metaverse platform the Sandbox enables users to earn and trade NFTs for goods and services virtually and in real-life. Find out how the metaverse could change the way businesses operate and engage with users.
