BNUG, Nigeria’s largest, most vibrant, and intelligent blockchain/cryptotech community is happy to announce the event as an “immersive experience and growth summit.” The conference is targeting the technologies of the 4IR and their intersection with blockchain technology.
Immerse and Grow in FutureTech
The theme of this year’s conference is “Immerse and Grow in FutureTech.” The event spans two days and is anticipated to be one of the most cutting-edge, influential immersive tech and growth conferences in Nigeria and Africa. The conference is also expected to grant participants access to GameFi platforms Virtual Reality (VR), and interactions within different metaverse worlds.
Although the existing metaverse industry has been described as being “basic and weird” because of nascent technology and adoption, it is still expected to have a profound impact on arts, gaming, education, and social interaction. Since the metaverse NFTs will drive the upcoming growth cycle in online digital collectibles, the union of metaverses with NFTs is inevitable.
Big things are to be expected of the industry as we have already seen global companies the likes of Apple, Microsoft, HTC, NVIDIA, and Meta invest in Augmented Reality (AR), VR, and other kinds of XR hardware. These all point to the massive potential of the virtual worlds and why you should register now!
Additionally, more than 5 million enthusiasts are presently logged in to the virtual world and the metaverse. All these people are currently creating and participating in the metaverse economy which is valued at over $825 Billion!
