The Decentraland platform launched what they call the ‘first virtual hotel in the metaverse’. The new digital hotel is a licensed copy of the real-world Millennium Hotels&Resorts.
A lot of brands are joining metaverse right now, as we know.
For example, McDonald’s wants to make virtual restaurants with real-world delivery services, Nike wants to sell its shoes in virtual shops.
However, another trend is creating real-world objects in the metaverse.
Well, there is no united metaverse according to the original definition meaning. So we can basically talk about different demo metaverses today.
Some of them are quite popular. Such as Decentraland, Sandbox, Axie Infinity, and others.
There is a lot going on there. For example, Millennium have just opened a hotel in Decentraland metaverse. And that’s quite an unusual story.
Singapore hotel in the Decentraland metaverse
The new hotel is named M Social Decentraland. In fact, it is a licensed version of the Singaporean hotels brand Millennium.
The company spokesperson said that the new virtual hotel is based on M Social hotels around the world and it ‘embodies the essence of the M Social lifestyle brand, aiming to be a place where everyone can gather and discover the VR universe’.
Millennium Hotels, launched in 2016, are now working in New York, Oakland, Paris, and Singapore.
As for the metaverse geography, the Virtual M Social Decentraland hotel is located in Genesis Plaza block.
When you enter it special stuff avatar would check you in and host you in the room. You can chat with other guests there, join events or simply stay the night.
Millennium Hotels company aims to involve its partners to launch different events in the new virtual property. The brand sees it as the future of resorts, and entertainment. So opening a hotel in the Decentraland metaverse seems quite reasonable.
Virtual universities are already there
Even before the M Social Decentraland launch, there was Liquid Avatar Technologies company that created virtual Canadian Lethbridge College.
The tech company provided College students with 9 000 plots of land within its Aftermath Islands Metaverse. It’s a platform for creating virtual world spaces same to the real-world analogs.
Students can build different structures, businesses, and even complete transactions in this metaverse. On some of the virtual land, the College will have its’ own campuses for online events, learning, and other services.
The idea will work at least in 2022. This semester Lethbridge College Island users can learn how to work, play, study, entertain, and earn in the metaverse.
Liquid Avatar also provided up to 100 000 in-game currency credits. So virtual money can be spent on building, buying, and trading assets like additional property, landscape items, and even avatars themselves.
So now you have a college and a hotel in the Decentraland metaverse. And it’s not even the end of 2022.
