Accelerator

Building the future of human-centered metaverse finance for all

Sella Group supports the growth of startups operating in metaverse finance and bringing disruptive innovations to the market through innovative technologies, in order to build an economically viable, inclusive and safe metaverse

The metaverse is a multifaceted human-centered environment based on a combination of factors such as infrastructure, interfaces, financial decentralization, computing, creator economy and hybrid/virtual experiences.
All these factors contribute to a set of new market opportunities for businesses and finance.

The global metaverse market size is predicted to attain USD 678.8 billion by 2030 (CAGR 39.4%)*

Our people’s view on the metaverse

Eva Ruiz
Southern Europe Head Fintech at Visa

“The metaverse represents the starting point towards alternative monetization opportunities and ways to pay, encompassing innovative customer experiences designed for a new generation.”

Anjali Bastianpillai
Thematic Equities Senior Product Specialist at Pictet Asset Management

“It was a pleasure to present last week at the launch event of “Metaverse 4 Finance Accelerator”: the first Italian acceleration program implemented by venture incubator dPixel and Sella Group, in partnership with OGR Torino which is deeply rooted in innovation and the generational shift driving these innovations #genZ and younger millennials which represent 33% of the population and are true digital natives. I covered all the layers of the metaverse and how this differs from web3. These layers will impact digital assets, financial technology and services through a number of innovations including the technology that’s used to build web3 – which includes blockchain, blockchain-based cryptocurrencies and NFTs. Opportunities exist if you separate the volatility of the crypto asset class from the underlying technologies such as blockchain where the developments in real world applications can be a game changer.”

“It is still unclear how the Metaverse will be designed and what the overall ecosystem will evolve into — open, closed, or hybrid models. So far, it has mostly been designed with user-centricity in mind and it operates in constant progression towards a fully-fledged, open economic system end-state. In order to fulfill that open virtual economic ideal, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) come into play as primary and indispensable tools because they represent digital property in virtual environments. If you calibrate the correct digital ownership tools and power a new format of the internet that is owned by the users and developers, the resultant system will equally be open and accessible.”
