The metaverse as a great advertising tunnel that turns us all into advertising
The Gamium metaverse is focused on digital identities and users will participate in it through an Avatar, which will represent their unique digital identity. It is an innovative concept of identity that allows the user to be the owner of their data and exercise complete control over their privacy. In Gamium, each avatar will be an NFT that will be associated with the user’s digital identity
Telefonica and Gamium
Alberto Rosas, co-founder and co-CEO of Gamium, affirms that in his company they think that the future lies in building platforms where users can control their data and privacy. This is why they are developing a metaverse based on an identity that can be used in other applications and metaverses. The alliance with Telefónica is a support to our mission and shows our desire to go hand in hand with leading companies, says Rosas.
