According to Clarence Chan, the founder of Bandwagon Labs, the metaverse is designed as a creative canvas where users can express their creativity while interacting with others in real time.

McDonald’s maintains full control over its in-app metaverse, which will run from June 6 to July 7. The success of this trial period will determine the future of the project and potential further deployments.

The integration of Web3 technologies, such as wallet hosting services like MetaMask, enhances the security, functionality, and use cases for digital collectibles within the metaverse.

Chan, who has personally experienced the potential of the metaverse by getting married in a virtual environment, believes that this technology can significantly boost customer retention and fan engagement. However, he also acknowledges that current metaverse experiences often suffer from issues related to third-party hosting and a lack of tangible rewards for users.

Bandwagon Labs aims to address these challenges by providing McDonald’s with a metaverse that not only allows users to engage and play with friends but also offers tangible rewards for participation.
