Frank Fitzgerald, founder of Pax.World, said,
“MetaWeek proved to be very beneficial to Pax.World after our attendance earlier this year where we went on to build multiple priceless partnerships and win ‘metaverse of the year’ in Dubai.
“We believe the metaverse is not only for fun and business but [also] community building and education. MetaWeek also represents this along with our mutual desire to make the metaverse open for everyone. [All] this is why it was easy to say yes when they asked if we’d join them again in September.”
Tapping into new larger audiences is one of the best ways for world-known brands from various sectors to benefit from entering the world of metaverse. New communities and myriads of ways to interact with them define the virtual realms and spark more interest from luxury fashion brands, tech giants and smaller businesses.
George Paliani, CEO of CoinsPaid Media, said,
“Many types of blockchain projects avoid the word ‘media’ and call themselves decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), communities or other variants. However, blockchain media has a number of advantages. Such projects can show the way with features that support Web 3.0. Now we have the opportunity to speak the same language with a new generation.”
Piers Dunhill, founder of Dunhill Ventures, said,
“The investment interest in metaverse and Web 3.0 solutions from corporate entities and private offices and funds from all over the world has been increasing exponentially over the last months.
