Hertha BSC footballer Kevin-Prince Boateng is getting married in the Metaverse. After the first virtual wedding last year, Boateng and his fiancée are now getting married in the metaverse. A fictitious space venue was created for this purpose. Tickets for the wedding can be bought via NFT, but access is limited. While the actual location of the wedding is not yet public, supporters will be able to watch the wedding live. In this way, the virtual and real worlds are slowly merging.
MetaBrewSociety, a Munich-based company, wants to open a hybrid brewery using NFT. The company’s goal is to buy a brewery with the help of the purchased NFT, which will then be transferred one-to-one to the metaverse. According to the company, arrangements for this are already complete. The special feature: Owners of an NFT can have a voice in certain business decisions and receive at a minimum one hundred bottles of real beer per year, which they can either drink themselves or sell to others via the NFT. They will also receive other benefits such as VIP tours of the brewery, discounts and tickets to other events. The MetaBrewSociety NFT thus enables participation in the reinvention of beer, the company says on its website.
The us tech company Meta says it is opening a Meta Store in Burlingame, California. The idea is that in this shop people should familiarise themselves with the company’s hardware products and get to a better understanding of the metaverse. Meta therefore is trying to get people into the metaverse more intensively.
