Anghami, one of the MENA region’s most popular music streaming services has hinted through its co-founder, Elie Habib, the possibility of creating their own cryptocurrency token known as “Anghami” token.
Earlier today, Habib posted a screenshot of his personal Anghami account showing a new section which would potentially allow users to connect their MetaMask or Rainbow Ethereum wallets in order to start earning the company’s new token as well as invest in select artists and podcasters.
As a caption for Habib’s post, he wrote “Probably nothing” which makes users believe that the company is most probably up to something interesting.
Discord’s CEO, Jason Cirton, shared a similar screenshot on his Twitter account yesterday hinting that Discord accounts linked to Ethereum may be on their way.
With the spotlight on Web 3.0, it seems like companies around the world are racing to the decentralized web.
World’s Largest Metaverse Developer Opens Dubai Office
LandVault, the largest metaverse creator, is expanding its presence into the MENA region.
LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region. The company aims to help local businesses gain a foothold in the expanding web 3.0 universe and sees exciting opportunities to bolster its client portfolio.
So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.
The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.
“We are excited to open our office in Dubai and to be a part of the vibrant tech community in the UAE. The MENA region is a key market for us, and we believe that our presence in Dubai will allow us to assist the region and explore new opportunities. We are also excited about the potential for the metaverse in the real estate industry in the UAE. We look forward to working with developers and real estate companies to showcase their properties in a new and innovative way,” says Sam Huber, CEO of LandVault.
Alongside developing the metaverse from its new Dubai office, LandVault will also deploy its technology to assist the UAE’s real estate sector. Developers will soon be able to showcase their projects in a way that was never previously possible, reaching a much wider audience with immersive and interactive property tours and even virtual showrooms.
