As we usher out October, these events are coming through the door. Another traditional bank is looking to cut a slice out of the NFT pie, but the tech giant Microsoft eying the metaverse takes center stage this week.

Microsoft Seek to Bridge Its Services With the Metaverse

Software tech giant Microsoft sees the metaverse as the next iteration of the internet, according to its CMO for the UAE.

To this end, the American company is looking to bridge its cloud services and other product offerings with several metaverse experiences. This will enable institutions and users to develop enriched apps.

On top of that, the current headset produced by them, the Hololens 2, will have a prominent role in this new strategy as it is a perfect fit for the potentialities of the metaverse.
