The Metaverse is the future of the internet. We are here for it. Recently Facebook had changed its name to Meta, and that just solidified the fact that the Metaverse is possibly going to come to us soon.
We are all excited about it because of the different prospects that we have now for the Metaverse to explore. We are not the only ones excited for it and waiting for it, though, because, in a recent turn of events, it seems that Walmart is also planning on joining the Metaverse.
Well? Did you expect that to happen so soon? Well, we didn’t either, but it looks like Walmart is jumping on this wagon to Metaverse soon enough. In a statement, Walmart had said this fact that it is “continuously exploring how emerging technologies may shape future shopping experiences.”
“We are testing new ideas all the time,” the company said. “Some ideas become products or services that make it to customers. And some we test, iterate, and learn from.”
They are taking this very seriously as we see the best to come forward. They have not explicitly shown interest in Metaverse verbally, but we know by their actions that they will go on with Metaverse in the future.
They might also come up with their own Cryptocurrency, and that is going to be some kind of development from their side. We are looking forward to what they are planning. Don’t worry; we are going to keep you up with the news. So make sure that you keep your eyes open on the news.
Walmart looks to be taking its first steps towards the metaverse by planning to launch its own cryptocurrency and set of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Late last month, the megastore registered a slew of new trademarks signalling its intention to produce and sell digital items across a variety of categories, including electronics, home decor, toys, sports, and personal care. Walmart announced in a separate filing that it will provide NFTs and a virtual currency to its customers.
That’s what the US government says, anyway. To the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Walmart submitted its requests on December 30.
