Fintech in the Metaverse
November 1, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Fintech in the Metaverse
With its incorporation of blockchain and non-fungible token (NFT) technologies, the immersive metaverse environment will create an explosion of opportunities for Fintech. While the level of penetration of virtual reality into our daily lives is still an open question—and perhaps generationally dependent—the opportunity for Fintech in the metaverse is not speculation. The purchase of virtual goods on-line is already estimated to be close to $100 billion annually, and about half that amount ($50 billion) of real-world and cyber assets are traded using crypto currencies every day. Combining an immersive on-line experience with an ownership and exchange model that persists world-wide will yield unprecedented opportunities for Fintech In the virtual world. These include virtual real estate transactions, convertible investments, markets for the exchange of goods and services—and many more.
Join us for dinner and a free-flowing discussion of Fintech in the Metaverse. Your host will be Dr. Jim Walsh, Chief Technology Officer of GlobalLogic.
