Hermès reveals plans for Metaverse and there's an NFT "beer with Bill Murray" - Zoop Web3 Highlights
Hermès Is Making Plans for Digital Assets, Fashion Events Crypto, and Metaverse
The Web 3.0 industry could soon see another major luxury brand enter the market. Hermès is preparing to enter the Web 3.0 space after filing a trademark application that includes the metaverse, digital assets, and cryptocurrencies.
The trademark application covered software that can manage, store, and view digital assets and collectibles, cryptocurrencies, and virtual goods to be utilized in metaverses.
Another trademark application followed that covers retailing of virtual goods, trade shows, and fashion events in a virtual environment. Additionally, the trademark makes provision for an online marketplace where sellers and buyers of digital assets can converge to trade.
Other highlights of this week in Web 3.0 include the exciting news of PlatON bringing on board Encentive. The LatticeX Foundation, which oversees PlatON, has granted Encentive funds to bring its multi-chain DApp building platform and turn-key to PlatON's next-gen internet infrastructure network.
Meanwhile, Xterio, a game publisher and developer, has secured $40M in funding from top players like Makers Fund, XPLA, FunPlus, Animoca Brands, etc. The funds will go towards building the next big thing in cross-platform web 3.0 franchises.
It seems the Twitter crypto community is not totally convinced by the recent move of Meta to integrate digital assets and collectibles onto its platforms, Facebook and Instagram, primarily due to the company's past controversies on data leaks.
A digital ticket to an event called beer with Bill Murray just sold for an astonishing 119.2 ETH, worth about $185,000.
As the Ethereum merge edges closer, OpenSea has announced that its platform won't be supporting any forked Digital assets.
