KPMG unveils hub in the metaverse



In an effort to assist customers in creating strategies for the metaverse, KPMG‘s US and Canadian businesses have built a so-called collaboration hub there.

Using virtual whiteboards, for example, workers, partners, and clients can have virtual team meetings at the private hub, according to a representative for Blockworks. Additionally, they will be able to hold meetings to discuss KPMG’s offerings and capabilities as well as training sessions, job interviews, employee evaluations, and employee evaluations in the metaverse.

Armughan Ahmad, president and managing partner of digital at KPMG in Canada, said in a statement: “The metaverse is enabling us to experience the ‘phygital’ world, where physical and digital worlds intersect. By 2030, there could be five billion people in the metaverse, creating a $13 trillion commercial opportunity.

In order to provide support for metaverse design, use cases of NFTs, cryptoassets, community involvement, and more extensive Web3 connections, the company’s US and Canadian businesses have developed specialized teams of personnel with experience in technology and innovation.

During the implementation and operationalization phases of their metaverse journey, these teams will support KPMG clients. For various metaverse activations, this comprises services like vendor selection, business and technical requirement design, systems integration, and program governance.

To help institutions and regulators better understand the market and the underlying technology, KPMG is evaluating Web3 capabilities

The action follows the February purchases of a World of Women NFT and the addition of bitcoin and ether to KPMG Canada’s corporate treasury. Morover, the onboarding procedure for new employees at KPMG’s US office now includes trainings on NFT and cryptocurrency.

KPMG is looking to hire additional individuals with expertise in blockchain technologies and DeFi, despite the fact that many companies in the cryptocurrency industry have chosen to freeze or slow hiring efforts in response to the sector’s recent decline.

Although there has been intense competition for elite talent, a spokeswoman claimed that recent changes in Web3 and the larger digital business are showing signs of making more talented talent available.

Artsies Collective is a beautiful NFT project



Two sisters, Juju and Natacha, who are respectively a visual artist and a life coach, co-founded and produced the arts, fashion, and events non-profit organization known as Artsies Collective.

“Our first collection of 5,555 Fine Art digital collectibles can now be found on the ETH blockchain.”

These collectibles were made using 301+ hand drawn traits and 55 original pictures created by the artist Juju. Artsies are people who are influenced by things such as liberation, pop art, fashion, fluidity, gaming, anime, and popular culture, all of which are merged into a whimsical, hybrid-utopian realm.

An Artsy membership grants the holder access to an online art hub, educational mentorships, and exclusive worldwide extraordinary art, fashion, and music events both in real life and on the web

‍ “Our goal is to provide mentorship in the areas of art, mental health, and the web, as well as opportunities for up-and-coming artists to display their work in an online gallery. This will allow us to empower creatives from the inside out. Priority consideration for exhibiting in our online gallery is given to holders. Collectors are given exclusive and early access to performances by these up-and-coming artists.”

The 5,555 NFTs are the product of an automatic computer generation based on more than 150 hand-drawn originals. In the year 2017, Juju launched the very first Artsy, and three years later, in 2021, they offered Artsy to the digital globe.

“You can boost your chances of being added to our Whitelist by taking part in our games, challenges, and artistic competitions that are hosted on Discord. Whitelist statuses are bestowed manually upon deserving individuals who are active participants in the ARTSIES COLLECTIVE community and who make significant contributions to the expansion of our initiative. In addition to that, those members of our community who demonstrate the most originality will be rewarded.”

TerraZero announces metaverse collaboration



TerraZero Technologies Inc., a Metaverse technology company and interactive experience studio, worked with Atlantic Records and Jason Derulo for an immersive activation in Decentraland.

The Metaverse is flooded with various brands. Despite the fact that there is a limitless supply of creative alternatives, very few people engage with their audiences in ways that go beyond ordinary marketing efforts. Very few famous people actively interact with their fans in the digital space without any boundaries.

TerraZero Technologies, a Metaverse and technology startup, teamed with Atlantic Records to spread the label’s activations across different Metaverse worlds. Atlantic and TerraZero teamed with Jason Derulo on unique Metaverse activations.

Recreate Jason Derulo’s music video for “Slidin'” in Decentraland as an experience produced by TerraZero, premiere the video, give fans a chance to style the environment themselves, and give away an exclusive Metaverse pool party to one lucky fan and their friends.

Decentraland hosts the event and music video debut on June 29

Jason Derulo: “I would’ve done anything for this kind of relationship with my idols.” “The Metaverse and how people can come together… TerraZero and what we developed together are the Internet’s future. I’ve always been a gamer, which has influenced my music and profession. Being an avatar in the Metaverse and communicating with others directly shows who I am beyond the screen and speakers. It’s unreal but real.”

Jason will attend the premiere as his TerraZero-created avatar, making this activation unique. Jason’s avatar will appear at Decentraland Metaverse places leading up to the premiere, which TerraZero will capture in “limitless worlds”

The concept, created by TerraZero’s Chief Metaverse Officer Ryan Kieffer and Chief Experience Officer Brandon F. Johnson, merges real-world individuals like Jason Derulo with eternally open-ended stories and moments that would never be feasible, let alone interactive and social, in any other media.
