The Metaverse Economy equips fintech professionals with an in-depth understanding of the emergent economic models in the Metaverse and across Web3.

In this book, fintech and metaverse experts Arun Krishnakumar and Theodora Lau help technology and financial services professionals prepare for the convergence of several technology paradigms: Web3, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), game and finance (GameFi) and the Metaverse. The Metaverse Economy provides an overview of the types of economic models that companies can use to scale business in Web3.

Offering balanced insight into the complex world of the Metaverse, the book demystifies the technology and economic paradigms that have triggered the rise of the Metaverse. The book also focuses on the convergence of these economic models into a unified system that competes directly with traditional frameworks. The authors break down the new qualitative and quantitative attributes professionals must consider to capture the opportunities of the market.

The Metaverse Economy tackles popular questions many financial services professionals have about market shares, value permanence, the ownership economy and play-to-earn models. Packed with case studies from some of the biggest brands in blockchain, DeFi, NFTs and gaming, the book helps finance professionals understand the risks associated with the Metaverse and prepare for what lies ahead.
