Jamestown, the owners of Times Square and Digital Currency Group Bring NYE to Metaverse with MetaFest 2022.

What is MetaFest 2022?

It will be the perfect opportunity for you to dip your feet into the Metaverse by exploring Decentraland and attend a familiar event that will include immersive games and music, rooftop VIP partying, NFT galleries, and the ball drop, and much more.

This is the perfect opportunity for users to attend the event safely without actually having to physically be on location.

What is Decentraland?

Decentraland is a virtual reality (or VR) platform that lets users create their own virtual worlds. Users can download a browser extension called MetaMask, which enables them to interact with the virtual land.

Decentraland was founded in 2016 by Juan Benet and backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Union Square Ventures, and other investors. In 2017, they raised $30 million from Andreessen Horowitz, UnionSquare Ventures, and others.
