Understanding the Metaverse: Creating Opportunities for the Future of Business
The Metaverse is suddenly everywhere! From debates in Fortnite and Discord, to articles on the pages of the New York Times and marketing rhetoric from Mark Zuckerberg. With Zukerberg’s nemesis, the Winkelvoss Brotherss, just announcing they have raised $400m to fund an open source metaverse play outside of Facebook’s walled garden, a battle royale is building.

But what exactly is the Metaverse?

The Metaverse is evolving as a persistent, 3D, virtual world, a network of interconnected experiences and devices, tools and infrastructure, far beyond mere virtual reality. And it is poised to revolutionise every industry and field, from finance and healthcare to payments, consumer products, and crypto art.

During this webinar, our expert panelists will share learnings on why and how we should prepare for a new digital renaissance and what the Metaverse means in terms of employment opportunities, investments, and entire new business models.

What you will learn from this webinar:
- Who and what will power the metaverse
- New business opportunities in the virtual economy
- Introduction to decentralised worlds
- The role of cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, and NFTs in the metaverse
- The importance of your digital identity
