The largest virtual reality (VR) in-person event in the world will happen in Madrid. This is in aid of launching a new metaverse.
MundoCrypto, a cryptocurrency training academy that operates in Spanish-speaking countries, is the host.
Taking place on August 27, at the WiZink Center in Madrid, 7500 guests will attempt to break a world record in the VR category. They will also try to create a new world record category that involves the Metaverse.
The Largest Virtual Reality Event and Guinness Book of World Records
The Guinness World Record for the most people using virtual reality currently stands at 1,867 participants. This record was set back in 2017, when the Metaverse didn’t exist.
The Guinness Book of World Records is sending 15 people to oversee the event. Attendees will be wearing VR headsets which allow for phones to be inserted. Ear plugs will be used for a fully-immersive experience.
The event starts at 17:00 CET on Saturday afternoon and goes until midnight. The seven-hour event will be streamed out to more than 100 countries in English and Spanish.
Mani Thawani is the founder of MundoCrypto. “My team and I are proud to have played an important role in the mass adoption of crypto over the past three years through our online educational courses. It is now time for us to bring the crypto community to a special place in our hearts, Madrid, for a unique physical experience in the Metaverse, and why not break a world record at the same time?”
Activities at the event
People who turn up can muck about in the gaming area, in a NFT room, a training room, watch presentations by crypto personalities, and participate in the Guinness Book of World Records attempt. Networking with investors, and entrepreneurs from the cryptoworld is also expected.
Tickets to attend the event are €50 but this gets refunded once the ticket holder turns up to the event.
