Walmart is quietly preparing to enter the metaverse
Walmart appears to be venturing into the metaverse with plans to create its own cryptocurrency and collection of NFTs.
The big-box retailer filed several new trademarks late last month that indicate its intent to make and sell virtual goods.
In a separate filing, the company said it would offer users a virtual currency, as well as non-fungible tokens, or NFTs.
Tory Lanez is Releasing His NFT Collection with Decentar Labs
Canadian rapper, singer, and record producer Tory Lanez has unveiled his first-ever NFT collection with Decentar Labs, an NFT platform using non-fungible tokens and cryptocurrency to create value for the various spaces where blockchain technology needs to reach. His first collection, known as 3NITY, was launched on 14 January.
The 3NITY collection is deflationary and periodic burning will make the collection scarce. This raises the overall value of the 3NITY NFT collection. The collection is fair-launched with no waitlisting.
Decentar is creating collections inspired by celebrity culture and will be turned into NFTs, animated series and 3D printed collectibles.
