Samsung837X has curated three main attractions in the metaverse that include:

  • Connectivity Theater: The attraction allows users to experience the power of seamless connectivity. The Connectivity theater will showcase Samsung news, along with learning about its customization features.
  • Sustainability Forest: Navigating through a million trees and a "mythical" encounter, Samsung has recently partnered with Veritree, a climate solution platform with the aim to plant 2 million trees.
  • Customization Stage: Acting as its main stage, the customization stage will host its first-ever metaverse dance party where visitors can enjoy music from DJ Gamma Vibes.

How do users visit Samsung837X?

For users to enter Decentraland, they need to have a desktop to access the site. Users enter Decentraland in two ways. They can log in as a guest or log in as a regular user. As a guest, users are prompted to create their digital avatar to navigate and explore the virtual world in Decentraland.

After completing a basic tutorial, users are free to roam, meet and chat with other users, and collect badges that get redeemed for other digital collectibles.

More companies are exploring the metaverse for its vast opportunities between tech, consumers, and culture.

As Michelle Crossan-Matos, the senior vice president of Corporate Marketing and Communications at Samsung Electronics America, said, “The metaverse empowers us to transcend physical and spatial limits to create unique virtual experiences that could not happen otherwise. Innovation is in our DNA, and we can’t wait for you all to experience this burgeoning virtual world.”
