Globe, the country’s leading digital solutions platform, showcased its leadership in Web3 and Metaverse innovations at the recent AsiaTech x Singapore (ATxSG), the region’s flagship technology event.
Invited to speak about transforming content experiences in Web3, Metaverse, and AR/VR, Ralph Aligada, Head of Globe Games, Esports, Innovations and Metaverse partnerships, highlighted Globe’s groundbreaking applications of these technologies.
The panel discussion also featured Aneirin Flynn from Singapore-based Eleos Labs and Virat Patel of Pioneer Consulting Asia-Pacific. The session was filled to capacity, and attendees from Asia-Pacific and beyond were seen standing by the stage absorbed in the discussion. The panel received overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees and the organizer.
“In a world that’s rapidly transforming through digital innovation, we at Globe understand that the future is no longer about simply providing traditional telecom services. We are no longer just a ‘telco’. We are at the forefront of a technological revolution, transitioning into a fully-fledged technology company – a ‘techco’. As we embrace this new identity, we are leveraging our technological expertise to drive innovation in Web3, the Metaverse and beyond,” Aligada shared.
Through strategic partnerships with trailblazing companies such as MetaverseGo, BUD, Coins.ph, and MetaCare, Globe is actively shaping the nation’s digital frontier. These alliances have empowered Globe to generate tangible, impactful use cases, pushing the boundaries in an exciting spectrum of ways.
Globe has introduced quicker onboarding for subscribers to Play to Earn Games, implemented Non-Fungible Token (NFT) minting with unique applications such as granting access to music festivals, and has enabled the conversion of Globe Rewards to cryptocurrency. Additionally, the company utilizes NFTs to provide access to healthcare services and has constructed its own virtual world, the Globe VH Metaverse, for exclusive live-streamed content.
“This is just the beginning. We are committed to continuous innovation and exploration of what these new technologies can offer. We are pioneering, learning, experimenting, and iterating to ensure that we’re not just talking about the future, but actively participating in its creation,” Aligada added.
