JPMorgan has become the first bank to open a branch in the metaverse. Onyx, the bank’s Ethereum-based blockchain unit, set up a lounge in Decentraland.  The Onyx lounge includes a spiral staircase, a tiger and an illuminated portrait of CEO Jamie Dimon. 

JPMorgan also released a report exploring the business opportunities in the metaverse. The bank predicted the metaverse is poised to become a USD 1 trillion market/year opportunity in revenues soon. Through the report, the bank wanted to give the lay of land of the metaverse to interested clients, and  outline its plans to explore opportunities in the metaverse.

Whether it’s large tech players such as Microsoft planning to create realistic workspaces, or Ariana Grande holding a concert in Fortnite, the opportunities presented by interactive, digital worlds seem limitless, the report read.
