3iQ Corp. Unveils Metaverse Headquarters in Voxels

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile – May 13, 2022) Today, 3iQ Corp (3iQ), Canada’s largest digital asset fund manager, unveiled its new virtual headquarters (HQ) located in the Voxels (formerly known as Cryptovoxels) metaverse. The Voxels metaverse is a virtual world in the metaverse, powered by the Ethereum blockchain. In this virtual world, users can create and customize their avatars, purchase and build on parcels of land. Similar to physical real estate, users own their land and assets—with their ownership and purchase history recorded permanently on the blockchain.

3iQ’s metaverse HQ is located in Rome, one of the oldest cities in the Voxels metaverse, on a parcel of waterfront property. The sleek and modern building is designed to represent the 3iQ brand and offer a space in the metaverse to share research and insights to educate visitors about the latest innovations in digital assets. The headquarters will also serve as a place for employees to gather, host webinars and events in the metaverse.

“At 3iQ, we believe that the blockchain will not only serve as the future of finance, but it is the next iteration of the internet. This announcement is akin to having a website in the early 90s.” said Fred Pye, CEO of 3iQ. “Being the first regulated digital asset investment fund manager in Canada, we’re excited to continue in that tradition of innovation and be one of the first fund managers to extend our presence into the metaverse. This move further demonstrates our commitment to making it easy for investors to benefit from the financial evolution towards blockchain technology.”

The metaverse headquarters contains a video of Fred Pye introducing the space and welcoming visitors to experience its unique features, which include:

  • Live market data
  • A guestbook signable using Ethereum wallets
  • Wearables that visitors can try on – including a rocket pack that takes you to the moon!
  • NFT collection display
  • Roof-top pool, elevators, and lounge areas
  • Displays with updates on 3iQ products
