In a replay of a December 9 webinar, we explore the impacts of the metaverse, an immersive virtual world that represents the next major phase of internet technology and has profound implications for the sports industry.
The webinar featured the following panelists:
• Tony Grillo, chief strategy officer for GreenPark Sports, a California-based social gaming developer active in fast-emerging areas such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and digital collectibles.
• Kurt Pittman, co-founder and owner of esports entity Nativz Gaming, an organization formed earlier this year in Ireland and active in developing competitive gaming in the emerging Web3 environment.
• Ryan Polun, head of esports and gaming in the Americas for global sports agency Sportfive, with Polun recently transferring from a different agency role to lead the new United States-based team.
• Tony Wang, co-founder of Agora and head of emerging technologies and markets for the interactive streaming technology company.
The discussion was moderated by SportBusiness US Editor Eric Fisher.
