Introduction from our CEO, Jawad Ashraf
Hello, and welcome to Virtua’s monthly news blog!
The metaverse will be an exciting and highly diverse place where people can represent and reinvent themselves in a way that truly reflects who they are. Here at Virtua, we’re really thrilled to be pioneering new ways for everyone to explore different aspects of their identities and personalities, socialise with a fantastic and like-minded community, and make a home for themselves in a completely new reality.
Our recent Digital Ownership Report is part of our ongoing mission to deliver a metaverse experience that people really love – and I was incredibly honoured to be featured amongst a number of leaders in the Web3 and metaverse industry in a recent article by Cointelegraph, which discusses digital identity and highlights our research findings.
You can read the full article by clicking the button below, and you can also check out a previous article published by TechCrunch, which focuses on the desire to own digital items rather than stream them. For even more fascinating results, you can read the full report through this blog post – and I’ll see you next month with more of our latest updates!
