Network provider Globe recently held a Web 3.0 educational media workshop together with Virtusio International, a communications firm offering Web 3.0 services. The workshop was designed to equip media and content creators with knowledge to cover emerging technologies such as cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and the metaverse, to name a few.
GCash, a portfolio company under Globe’s corporate venture builder 917Ventures, will soon allow app users to buy and sell cryptocurrency on the platform.
Globe confirmed its interest in exploring the metaverse to allow people to connect, interact and even work together virtually, with initiatives spearheaded by 917Ventures, its wholly-owned corporate venture builder.
“While Web 3.0 is still at its infancy, we are already investing in learning to harness its technologies to solve problems and serve our customers and society at large,” said Yoly Crisanto, chief sustainability and corporate communications officer, Globe.
Globe and Virtusio International tapped Bitskwela, a startup offering crypto and Web 3.0 education in English, Tagalog, Cebuano, and Ilocano, to facilitate the media workshop.
“As we recognize Web 3.0’s rich potential, we acknowledge the need to work with technology platforms, the government, and businesses to advance education, build trust, and foster legitimate communities,” said Neil Trinidad, vice president and head of New Business at GCash.
