Onyx – Virtual Lounge

JP Morgan, the largest US bank, has opened the Onyx lounge in Decentraland, making it the first lender in the metaverse. The bank’s first excursion into the virtual world is the virtual lounge. JP Morgan’s permissible ETH-based services are known as Oynx. The same name refers to a virtual lounge that allows institutions and corporations to enter the metaverse.

The financial behemoth has released reports on the general acceptance of cryptocurrencies. JP Morgan’s recent paper delves into the metaverse and the possibilities for integrated commerce applications. Customers can now purchase digital treasures and experiences from electronics and fashion companies that have entered the realm of digital real estate and metaverse parties.

“There is a lot of client interest to learn more about the metaverse. We put together our white paper to help clients cut through the noise and highlight what the current reality is, and what needs to be built next in technology, commercial infrastructure, privacy/identity, and workforce, in order to maximize the full potential of our lives in the metaverse”, said Christine Moy, JPMorgan’s head of crypto and metaverse.

The average price of a virtual plot of land grew in the second half of 2021, climbing from $6,000 in June to $12,000 in December across the four major Web 3 metaverse sites: Decentraland, The Sandbox, Somnium Space, and Cryptovoxels, according to JPMorgan’s examination of “metanomics.“

„In time, the virtual real estate market might see services similar to those offered in the real world,“ according to the JPMorgan report. These services include credit, mortgages, and rental agreements. It went on to add that collateral management in decentralized finance (DeFi) might play a role, and that this could be managed by decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) rather than traditional finance corporations.


Components of the metaverse continue to evolve at a dizzying speed. Building a corporate strategy around such a dynamic environment marked by rapid development and new entrant innovation might be difficult but it’s necessary. In the upcoming years, you will see the housing markets booming but probably, mainly the virtual ones.
