Cryptocurrency is also known as virtual currency. Suffice it to say that the word “virtual” is becoming increasingly familiar in the context of cryptocurrencies, indicating a new love of virtual reality.
More and more cryptocurrency events and meetings are hosted in VR rooms or platforms. At the same time, blockchain-based virtual worlds and platforms were created using their own cryptocurrencies, allowing virtual citizens to acquire in-house items.
But is such an important part of such growth? Or is this just a segment of the cryptocurrency ecosystem that could collapse as soon as Korovirus disappears and once again be able to attend IRL (real-life) conferences?
Usually, in the case of these items, the answer can be found somewhere in the middle.
Virtual meetings, lectures and conferences
Now that Coronavirus has effectively shut down all cryptocurrency conferences, virtual reality has taken a step forward in the near future, without attending meetings, with no chance of catching a sympathetic infection from a fellow.
Since February at least, VR has hosted Bitcoin (BTC) and other crypto meetings. It first appeared on VRChat on February 15, when developer Udi Wertheimer organized a virtual social gathering that was also attended by other prominent bitcoiners, such as Eric Wall, Brad Mills, Hodlowout and Manny Rosenfeld, chairman of the Israeli Bitcoin Association.
This initial meeting was largely social in nature, but since then the virtual bitcoin gatherings have focused on education and business. James Lopez, Casa’s CTO, Casa Security Chief Officer, delivers the first BTC lecture as it happened on February 29, when Bitcoin developer Adam Gibson gave a presentation on PayJoin, a special type of CoinJoin protocol (a method to increase transaction). By combining bitcoin payments into one transaction).
