According to a press release shared with CryptoGlobe, this innovative project aims to promote financial literacy and educate users on the importance of financial planning, money management, and investing in an immersive virtual environment.
As per the press release, with the rapid growth of Web3 technologies and the metaverse, there is an opportunity to create virtual environments to educate and communicate with people across the globe. The Fidelity International Campus is reportedly one of the first metaverse experiences of its kind, launched by a global asset manager.
The press release describes the Fidelity International Campus as a unique digital space designed to offer users a fun and engaging experience. It features interactive games, galleries, and experiences such as The Game of Life, the Social Mobility Gallery, and the Discover Fidelity building. Users can unlock digital assets like non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and exclusive Decentraland wearables, adding an extra layer of interest to the learning experience.
Fidelity says The Game of Life simulates real-life financial scenarios, helping users explore smart financial decisions. The Social Mobility Gallery highlights the company’s efforts in building better financial futures through supporting social mobility and even allows users to mint NFTs.
