Forbes Organizes Web3 Event in Partnership with Sandbox
The event aimed to provide subscribers and public members with additional choices for communicating with the metaverse.
Forbes Web3 Event
With its massive money-making potential, the metaverse has knocked on the doors of Forbes and The Sandbox. Forbes, a mainstream business magazine, in hopes of accelerating Web3 adoption, hosted a first-of-its-kind event in the decentralized metaverse platform on the 10th of November.
The virtual event was made open to members who had subscriptions with Forbes. The ticket to the metaverse event was a wearable NFT. However, featured games, quests and a virtual yacht also doubled as tickets. The event celebrated the company’s incredible history. It included quests, a DJ booth, virtual billionaires and a bar. In addition, a fun-yet-tough treasure hunt was organized for the attendees to participate in, where they will have to seek out various parts of the metaverse property.
Vadim Supitskiy, Forbes’ Chief Technology Officer, said:
“We’re always looking to provide more value to our members and offer them unique and engaging experiences – from the real world, Web2 and Web3. We envision this space to be a place where our community will convene, make new connections, learn, discover new ideas, entertain and have fun.”
Attendees were able to explore the Forbes metaverse publications. It included the NFT gallery and featured Forbes' virtual NFT Billionaires collection. The collection involves a set of fictional virtual investors with massive theoretical portfolios and a virtual net worth based on live New York Stock Exchange pricing. The NFTs in that collection are dynamic and updated periodically.
Sandbox Recent Activities
The Sandbox has been one of the most active metaverses in the crypto bear market, creating partnerships with brands such as Playboy and individuals like Paris Hilton. In September 2022, Sandbox partnered with 1-Group and Smobler studios to hold the first metaverse wedding.
Its partnership with Forbes shows that the magazine is still bullish on Web3 despite the crypto bear market.
