Metaverse is a buzz wordy word these days but, every day, more companies are realizing how powerful of a marketing tool these virtual worlds can be.
The consumer electronics giant has entered the metaverse by opening a store and cultural center inside Decentraland, a decentralized virtual gaming world based on the Ethereum blockchain. Samsung is jumping things off with their new location in the virtual world, by offering users an interactive scavenger hunt and chance at earning limited edition wearable in-game items.
Samsung 837, a flagship New York City experience center, has added a location that you can explore virtually.
