Today we see a lot of instability in the Crypto market with the implosion of the Terra stable coin, Bitcoin plunging below USD 20 000 and Coinbase announcing that they will lay off 18% of its employees. Is this the end of the Crypto saga or just another bump in the road? The development of the Metaverse doesn't seem to halt and Crypto is still expected to play an essential role, right? Looking forward, how shall you and your organisation handle Crypto, Web3 and the Metaverse? Shall it be a part of your long-term strategy or not?
