Crypto and metaverse adoption boom
Walmart’s global chief technology officer says cryptos and the metaverse will disrupt payment methods. More than that, he believes that they are bound to improve product discovery for the retail giant.
In a new interview at Yahoo Finance’s All Markets Summit, Suresh Kumar, Walmart’s global chief technology officer and chief development officer, said that the future of retail includes crypto transactions for both real world and virtual goods.
He also made sure to explain the fact that product discovery will increase in online spaces like the metaverse or live streams.
“I think that there are three major areas of disruption. Crypto falls in sort of the middle of it. I have talked before about the way in which customers are getting inspired and discovering products. That is changing.”
He continued and said the following:
“And part of that is going to happen in the metaverse. Part of that is going to happen on live streams, inside your social media app. So whether it is physical goods or virtual goods, they play a part in terms of what the customer wants.”
