No stranger to the metaverse, Forbes is embracing Web3 even further with a first-of-its-kind event in Sandbox on November 10, an initiative aimed at offering more opportunities for members and subscribers to better engage in the metaverse in ways they haven’t before.
In partnership with Sandbox, Forbes members will receive a wearable NFT as their ticket to enter the metaverse. Attendees will have the chance to explore the Forbes metaverse, which will contain many mementos that are true to Forbes form including the NFT gallery, with Forbes’ virtual NFT Billionaires on display, all of which are fictional virtual investors with enormous theoretical portfolios and a virtual net worth based on live New York Stock Exchange Pricing.
During the event, members can embark on a fun and challenging quest to find different areas of the metaverse property, including a DJ booth, bar, and dance floor. Members can also explore the famous Forbes Highlander Yacht, where the likes of Paul McCartney, Elizabeth Taylor and even Henry and Nancy Kissinger hung out back in the 1980s. Of course, attendees have the chance to interact with other members and answer fun and challenging trivia about Forbes and its history as well.
