Why VICE Built Their Metaverse HQ in Decentraland with Global Executive Creative Director of VICE / VIRTUE Morten Grubak Welcome to the Metaverse

    • Technology

On this episode of the Welcome to the Metaverse podcast, I chat to Morten Grubak - Global Executive Creative Director of VICE / VIRTUE about their entry to the metaverse. They recently launched VICE HQ in Decentraland, a stunning piece of digital architecture and the hub of their future in web 3.0. Morten has an incredible insight into the vision for VICE in the metaverse and more broadly. We also talk about an amazing piece of research that VIRTUE (the creative agency by VICE) have put together called The Screenwear Paper (in partnership with The Dematerialised), all about interest and consumer behaviour around digital fashion. 

Some absolute gold in this episode, thank you Morten for coming on. All links below

This podcast is sponsored by the awesome Everyrealm (previously Republic Realm) who are a leader in metaverse innovation, investment, and NFTs. They are among the largest owners of digital real estate NFTs in Decentraland, The Sandbox and Axie Infinity to name just a few.

They’re also the creators of the Fantasy Islands metaverse NFT project, the ultra-luxury metaverse destination and community in The Sandbox and beyond. They’ve also just launched their luxury digital wearables as part of the collection, designed by The Fabricant.

And recently they also dropped their collection of GFTs in partnership with Atari, one of the world’s most iconic brands - it’s a collection designed for gifting or of course you could keep your GFT for yourself.
