Just days after Samsung Electronics announced it will integrate Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) into its next generation of television sets, the American arm of the tech giant has floated its Samsung 837x store on Decentraland. Named after the Samsung 837x store the company set up in New York City, the virtual park will reignite the company’s technological experiences and how it is showcased to its fans around the world.
Available for only a limited time, the Samsung 837x will recreate new experiences for visitors through Connectivity Theater, the Sustainability Forest, and the Customization stages respectively. Samsung is now the latest global tech brand to float a replica of one of its most revered stores on Decentraland and the largest to date.
“At Samsung 837X, we’re excited to tell our connectivity, sustainability, and customization stories in a novel way, in a one-of-a-kind space,” said Michelle Crossan-Matos, Senior Vice President of Corporate Marketing and Communications at Samsung Electronics America. “The metaverse empowers us to transcend physical and spatial limits to create unique virtual experiences that could not happen otherwise. Innovation is in our DNA, and we can’t wait for you all to experience this burgeoning virtual world.”
What Virtual Visitors are to Expect
The Samsung 837x Connectivity Theater is aimed at unveiling the company’s “news from the CES stage and allowing guests to learn more about the powerful experiences that come from seamless connectivity and customized solutions powered by Samsung technology.”
A few days ago, Samsung announced its plans to plant 2 million trees drawing on blockchain technology provided by veritree. This proposed ecosystem will be featured prominently in the Sustainability Forest, which is a portal where guests can embark on a journey through millions of trees – and even have a mythic encounter.
The last phase is the Customization Stage and is aimed at celebrating the debut of 837x. In this stage, guests are invited to our first-ever metaverse mixed reality live dance party hosted by brilliant producer, DJ, and Vibraphonist, Gamma Vibes, from the physical Samsung 837 location.
“837X NFT badge holders will be entered into a raffle to win one of three limited-supply wearable collections from Epic to Mythic levels for their Decentraland avatar to sport.”
The Samsung partnership news, alongside other recent bullish news about Decentraland, has sent the price of the platform’s token ‘MANA’ to a new weekly high of $3.43.
