In the new era of digital immersion, the rise of the metaverse and web3 technologies have sparked a revolution in how we interact with digital and in-person spaces. This is where BrickRose Exchange, founded by Bianca Jackson comes into play as her company is bridging these new technologies to create unforgettable live experiences in a sector that’s expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2028. As these advancements continue to reshape the landscape, businesses and artists alike are discovering innovative ways to leverage these tools for bringing immersive and unforgettable live experiences to the forefront.
Why This Matters: Web3, often referred to as the decentralized internet, is the technology that underpins the metaverse. With web3, users have more control over their online interactions and transactions, fostering an environment of transparency and trust. This is immensely important as the global metaverse market is estimated to surpass around $1.3 trillion by 2030, according to Precedence Research.
Web3 is not just the backbone of the metaverse; it’s also a key player in enhancing live experiences. From virtual concerts and fashion shows to large-scale conferences and events, web3 facilitates immersive and interactive experiences that transcend geographical boundaries. With web3 technologies, organizers like BrickRose Exchange are a leading force taking these experiences to the next level.
