Ellen Britt for CNT #NFT
Recently we reported on investment banking giant JP Morgan Chase, which has opened a lounge in the Decentraland metaverse, signaling an oncoming sea change in the banking industry.
First Mover’s Advantage
The company was the first banking institution to make this move, but others are sure to follow now that JP Morgan has blazed a trail. You can’t open up a checking or savings account just yet, but you can buy virtual real estate with NFTs and also make other purchases with cryptocurrency.
Step Into The Lounge
Their virtual space is known as the Onyx Lounge. The Lounge, in addition to a spiral staircase and a tiger (yes, a tiger!) also contains a report detailing the various types of metaverse opportunities JP Morgan Chase sees possible for businesses.
The Big Takeaway
But here’s the report’s big takeaway:
”The metaverse will likely infiltrate every sector in some way in the coming years,
with the market opportunity estimated at over $1 trillion (€880 billion) in yearly revenues.”
Are we early? Yes, but that is the best place to be if you have the foresight and the knowledge to take advantage of the moment.
