Project Lead, Decentraland

Decentraland users are already using cryptocurrency to purchase virtual land. Under the partnership, companies intend to find a way to give landowners access to credit, for instance using other digital assets as collateral, would allow them to expand their businesses and offerings at greater speeds.

Our goal is not just to build new standards in global credit services, but also to give birth to a global lending ecosystem that can connect people on any currency, no matter if they trade in the real or the virtual world. Our alliance with the Decentraland team is a huge step towards this objective.
