VR World®, which is one of the largest virtual reality clubs in the Americas, has decided to embrace crypto.
VR World, which was founded in 2017, is based in New York City. Here is how it describes itself:
“VR World is North America’s largest immersive entertainment destination, featuring over 50 virtual reality experiences, ranging from gaming, art, and film.“
In a press release issued on Tuesday (December 14), the company said that crypto can now be used to pay for goods and services thanks to crypto payment processor BitPay and that it believes this ability to accept crypto will allow it to “attract new customers and sales by tapping the massive crypto marketplace, expanding the offerings to a broader cross-section of enthusiasts and the public in general.”
Leo Tsimmer, CEO of VR World, had this to say:
“After VR World hosted the official afterparty for NFT NYC conference last month, it became clear to us – cryptocurrency has entered everyday life. With our business of mixed reality location-based entertainment is a natural fit to digital art, gaming, esports and all things in crypto-universe, it was only a matter of time when we would offer our corporate and retail customers another way to transact.
“We are humanizing technology in ways that bring us closer together in real-time and space. As we proceed with building an entertainment continuum fusing IRL and digital offerings, we expect a cryptocurrency to play a major role in our operations.
“BitPay is democratizing crypto transactions opening a sea of opportunities that go beyond a typical transactional experience and become a significant part of VR World’s Humanverse Experience Anytime Anywhere.“
