Companies have been rushing into the open metaverse such as the Sandbox and Decentraland both of which are ethereum-based. The Portals seem to be a favorite among users for capturing the metaverse mania on the high-speed Solana blockchain. The Binance US spokesperson Zachary Tindall said the buildout is meant to be a gathering place for all users:
“We are creating a space in the metaverse for the Binance.US community to come together. It’s the first of many steps we’re taking to be forward-looking as we build and reach our community in new environments.”
Solana projects Magic Eden, Raydium, Audius, Bonfida, and others that will have a presence in the Portals metaverse and they generally describe a virtual world where people can interact as they do in the real world. The traditional companies made a beeline for the metaverse over the past year and the social media giant Facebook underwent a major rebrand becoming META in a broader effort to lead the metaverse-based apps. It is still unclear how Facebook’s metaverse effort will interact with the other open metaverses.
As recently reported, Changpeng Zhao’s net worth overtook Asia’s richest billionaire Mukesh Ambani despite excluding his personal crypto holdings like BTC and the Binance native token BNB token. The Binance CEO CZ is the richest crypto billioanire according to Bloomberg with an estimated net worth of $96 billion. He ranks 11th among the world’s richest people as Binance retains the position as the biggest crypto exchange in terms of the trading volume. This was the first time that Bloomberg estimated the fortune Zhao has and its growth trajectory signals a possibility of surpassing tech goliaths like Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
