The metaverse – home to a future USD 5 trillion crypto-powered economy
The metaverse is an always-on interactive 3D world built on open blockchain technology that allows users to socialise, play games, work and earn, shop and develop new skills. As personal digital, physical, financial and social worlds become increasingly linked by connected devices, the demand for enhanced user experiences also continue to rise. The metaverse has the potential to deliver these enhanced experiences and reach a value of USD 5 trillion by 2030, according to McKinsey research.
Decentraland is the first and largest metaverse which leverages a crypto asset called MANA to facilitate gaming and the purchase of virtual land, goods and services in the space. Sygnum’s three-storey hub is located in the virtual equivalent of New York’s Times Square. Users’ avatars can learn about Sygnum in the Crypto Garden and experience Sygnum’s vision of Future Finance in action throughout the complex. Areas include the SYGN lounge with a CryptoPunk receptionist, an interactive NFT gallery featuring curated exhibitions from Sygnum, its clients and leading creators, plus an exhibition hall for events and launches.
