Real-World Experience in a Game

The team takes sees the pursuit of financial freedom through Bitcoin as a game. People around the world are trying to acquire bitcoin through mining, trading, shilling, and earning. In doing so, they also have to avoid the villains of inflation, monetary controls, censorship, and other forms of financial debasement.

This game is already in existence and Fold users have already benefited by capturing billions of satoshis. A more developed version will be available next year to enable individuals to find trade and hide Bitcoins. It will also allow merchants to engage the community with incentives and offers. 

Metaverse’s Next Spin

Fold’s take on the metaverse is just one of the many ideas that businesses, organizations, individuals, and communities can create a functional and engaging platform. Current development that is unrolling in the crypto space is predominantly for the gaming community. 

The metaverse has much more to offer. It can play a major role in any given industry because of the degree of human interaction that can take place. Hence, projects like Decentraland and Sandbox are seeing exponential growth.
