The Metafest 2022 Global Party is a New Year’s Eve celebration in the metaverse hosted by Jamestown, a real estate company, and Digital Currency Group (DCG), a crypto investment firm in Decentraland.

NYE meets the Metaverse
The New Year’s Eve ball drops will take place in Decentraland and is hosted by Jamestown and Digital Currency Group (DCG). The announcement states that DCG is the largest landowner in Decentraland while Jamestown holds the famous One Times Square. Simon Koster, DCG’s head for real estate, explains how digital and real worlds can merge.
Koster stated that the metaverse was rapidly evolving to bring together some of the most intriguing and captivating parts of our favorite physical locations around the globe. “From destinations to gaming, education and retail, we can expect to see the metaverse revolutionize our online experience.”
This event demonstrates how virtual events can be integrated with real events in order to offer once-in-a lifetime experiences to those who are unable to attend otherwise.
Virtual One Times Square will feature entertainment acts, Rooftop VIP Lounges, and Live Feeds from NYC
Michael Phillips, president of Jamestown, agrees. He believes that the future of real-estate is the “thoughtful integration of the physical and virtual worlds, optimized to user experience, optimized for user. Partygoers will enjoy entertainment and music acts, as well as VIP lounges on the roof.
A live stream of the Times Square ball drop celebration will be available. Phillips said that the metaverse is an essential part of the evolution in real estate and built environments. Phillips said, “Physical real estate is limited to those who are geographically close to the location. The metaverse can provide people all over the world meaningful access through immersive virtual experiences.”
One Times Square is being recreated in the Decentraland metaverse as part of a wider digital asset strategy. This strategy aims to improve and enhance our physical real property for Web 3.0, and to open up new avenues for our assets to exist across multiple metaverses.
