One of the leading crypto exchange platforms, Binance’s United States branch, builds an office in the Solana-based metaverse named Portals. Metaverse combines multiple forms of technology like virtual and augmented reality that allows users to explore and interact with others in a virtual environment.
The Portals metaverse is a one-of-a-kind platform that allows users to visit different buildings and interactive rooms. The company has revealed no information regarding the cost of acquiring the virtual space for their office.
The news was disclosed by the Portals’ Head of Community and Partnerships, Chris Lund, through a tweet. Solana-based Portals is an NFT collection that provides 5000 access keycards, providing users access to pre-designed and customizable spaces in the virtual world.
The high-end features offered by Portals make it one of the primary choices for companies across the globe to start their metaverse journeys. According to Binance.US, it plans to provide the latest developments, charts, and events through the office built-in Portals.
Zachary Tindall, a spokesman for Binance.US, said, “We are creating a space in the metaverse for the Binance.US community to come together. It’s the first of many steps we’re taking to be forward-looking as we build and reach our community in new environments.”
Multiple industry-leading brands have started entering the metaverse, including Adidas, Nike, and Meta (formerly known as Facebook). Few months back, Samsung also launched a metaverse version of its Samsung 837 location in Decentraland, a metaverse platform based on Ethereum.
A blockchain consulting firm, Moonrock Capital, recently purchased one of the Degenerate Ape Academy NFTs for 5,980 SOL, making it the first million-dollar NFT sale on Solana.
