The firm’s $30 million investment in Web3 experiences this year is focused on the metaverse hub.
KPMG, the US, and Canadian-based accounting firm, has announced the opening of a metaverse collaboration hub where employees, clients, and communities may connect, engage, and search for chances for advancement in a variety of fields.
The lofty objective
The metaverse is a market opportunity, a way to re-engage talent, and a way to connect people worldwide through a new collaborative experience, according to the statement.
The collaborative hub is the next step in both companies’ initiatives to lead their people and clients toward Web 3.0.
To assist clients in creating and implementing their own metaverse initiatives, both businesses have established specialized teams.
KPMG joins a plethora of companies hoping to disrupt the metaverse and get exposure in a completely new realm of user interaction and teamwork.
By 2030, there may be five billion users of the metaverse, a $13 trillion commercial potential.
The companies will keep looking into opportunities in the crypto and Web 3.0 sectors as part of their innovation strategy.
They will also launch immersive learning and development platforms, hire talent to lend expertise, and steer the developing convergence of the physical and digital worlds, among other things.
As part of its commitment to digital assets and cutting-edge technology, KPMG in Canada earlier this year declared that it has incorporated Bitcoin and Ethereum to its corporate treasury.
Additionally, it disclosed that it has purchased a non-fungible token from World of Women (NFT).
On the other hand, NFT experiences and crypto training classes have been incorporated into the onboarding procedures at KPMG US for new hires.
