Samsung Reveals Virtual Store 837X in Decentraland Metaverse With NFT Badges and Theater

After the electronics giant Samsung disclosed the firm’s upcoming 2022 smart televisions would boast non-fungible token (NFT) support, the company has revealed it has opened a virtual store inside the Decentraland metaverse. Modeled from the physical store Samsung 837, Samsung’s metaverse store is called “Samsung 837X.”

Samsung Enters the Metaverse

Samsung has opened its first store in the Decentraland blockchain virtual metaverse. This is a clear indication that the company cares about NFTs and the metaverse. Samsung 837X stores are modeled after the actual location in New York City. Decentraland visitors will have limited access to the virtual store for a brief time.

“Samsung’s new metaverse experience brings its spirit as an experiential playground for people to discover the amazing possibilities when technology and culture collide,” the electronics manufacturer’s announcement explains. In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the Connectivity Theater (the Sustainability Forest) and the Customization Stage.

Samsung NFT Badges & Metaverse Mixed Reality Live Dance Party

According to Samsung, fans perusing through the theater and forest can “complete quests along the way for 837X Non-Fungible Token (NFT) badges.” The theater will showcase Samsung news and the stage will feature a “metaverse mixed reality live dance party” hosted by the DJ Gamma Vibes.

“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,” Michelle Crossan-Matos the senior vice president of corporate marketing and communications at Samsung Electronics America said in a statement. Crossan-Matos added:

Metaverse allows us to go beyond spatial and physical boundaries in order to create extraordinary virtual experiences. Innovation is in our DNA, and we can’t wait for you all to experience this burgeoning virtual world.

In the meantime, Metaverse tokens derived from Decentraland or The Sandbox projects have experienced decent gains over recent weeks. Year-to date, Decentraland has increased 2,304% as the native token to the blockchain metaverse (MANA). In recent years, both projects saw significant land sales. Metaverse lands also have been selling at a high price.
