The largest in-person virtual reality (VR) event in the world will take place in Madrid. This helps launch a new metaverse.
MundoCrypto, a cryptocurrency training academy that operates in Spanish-speaking countries, is the host.
Taking place on August 27 at the WiZink Center in Madrid, 7,500 guests will attempt to break a world record in the VR category. They will also try to create a new world record category involving the metaverse.
The biggest virtual reality event and the Guinness Book of World Records
The Guinness World Record for the most people using virtual reality currently stands at 1,867 participants. This record was set in 2017, when the Metaverse didn’t exist.
The Guinness Book of World Records sends 15 people to oversee the event. Participants will wear VR headsets that allow for the insertion of phones. Earplugs will be used for a fully immersive experience.
The event starts at 5:00 p.m. CET on Saturday afternoon and runs until midnight. The seven-hour event will be broadcast in over 100 countries in English and Spanish.
Mani Thawani is the founder of MundoCrypto. “My team and I are proud to have played an important role in the mass adoption of crypto over the past three years through our online education courses. Now is the time for us to bring the crypto community into a special place in our hearts, Madrid, for a unique physical experience in the metaverse, and why not break a world record at the same time?
