The metaverse – home to a future USD 5tn 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 5tn by 20301, according to McKinsey research.
Decentraland is the first and largest metaverse which leverages a crypto 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 three-storey 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.
Sygnum – a crypto-native financial institution in the metaverse
Sygnum believes that the metaverse, enabled by Web3 technologies, is evolving into the next iteration of the internet. Rooted in Swiss and Singapore heritage, Sygnum has also been an active, crypto-native member of the Web3 community since its inception, with projects including:
“Metaverse investment is ramping up, powered by crypto-enabled retail transactions and a new generation of users completely at home with socialising, shopping and working in virtual spaces. Our new metaverse hub is the natural place to showcase Sygnum’s Web3 innovations and provide a trusted entry point for investors into the fast-growing Future Finance economy”, says Martin Burgherr, Sygnum Chief Clients Officer.“
