Forbes has decided to deepen its ties to the Web3 community by hosting an unconventional event with its Web3 partner, Sandbox. According to their collaborative intentions, this event is scheduled to occur on November 10, 2022. The primary objective and intent of this move are to provide all of its subscribers and public members with additional choices for communicating with the metaverse.
Forbes is teaming up with Sandbox in the form of a partnership to help it reach its objective. In this specific situation, all Forbes-affiliated participants will receive a wearable NFT to connect and enter the metaverse. This affords them the ability to delve deeper into the Forbes metaverse.
The virtual world will then connect them to all of the paraphernalia and collectibles currently owned by Forbes. This includes the NFT gallery, which will display Forbes’ virtual NFT Billionaires. In addition, there will be a fun and tough treasure hunt for attendees to participate in, where they will have to seek out various parts of the metaverse property.
Vadim Supitskiv, Forbes’ Chief Technical Officer, said that the goal of this massive effort is to facilitate more productive communication between the company and its users.
For as long as there has been a Forbes, there has been coverage of the metaverse. However, it wasn’t until April 2021 that Forbes changed one of its covers into an NFT and then five more consecutive covers in the Forbes 2021 Billionaires issue.
