Hyundai also hinted at a future Metaverse, following up on an earlier notion for robots that may cross the real and virtual worlds to improve mobility.

A teaser for a new “Shooting Star NFT” was included in the announcement, with the enigmatic explanation that it is a “ticket to a whole new world” and might lead to “new NFTs.”
Hyundai unveiled its “Metamobility” concept in January, a vision for robots to act as a bridge between the actual world and the Metaverse, allowing users to “overcome the physical restrictions of movement in time and space.”
Hyundai declared as part of its concept vision:
“With the metaverse poised to become a daily area for people in the future, the company anticipates the creation of a new sort of metaverse platform in which the line between reality and virtual reality may blur, breaking away from the concept of VR as it is currently understood.”
With the release of numerous NFTs as mobility vehicles, Hyundai extended its notion, hinting at a future “Hyundai Metamobility universe” a metaverse.
NFTs and play-to-earn surveys conducted by Activision Blizzard
Players of Activision Blizzard’s games were recently asked to fill up a survey on their interest in NFTs, as well as their thoughts on play-to-earn and Metaverse games.
A screenshot of a survey done by market research firm YouGov to evaluate interest in several categories of “future gaming trends” was tweeted by Twitter user @OTadaka.
So it seems Blizzard/Activision is trying to see if players are interested in crypto and n.f*t in games. I got a survey from them and it is on the survey. I said very disinterested to them. pic.twitter.com/dIT4bVokDK

Microsoft paid $69 billion for Activision Blizzard in January, claiming that the acquisition would “supply building blocks for the Metaverse.” Microsoft CEO and chairman Satya Nadella stated that gaming will play a “key role” in the development of metaverse platforms.
HashCash Consultants, a blockchain services firm, said on April 16th that it was teaming with an undisclosed UK-based company to generate NFTs that contain information about an individual’s health.
The companies will collaborate with volunteers who will contribute their health data, with the goal of converting it into an NFT so that it can be shared with healthcare professionals, a step that the company claims will make it easier for the owner to track and monetize.
The publication used the example of a DNA testing kit provider selling its user data to a research organization to show how this form of NFT may be tracked and monetized. Raj Chowdhury, the Founder and CEO of HashCash Consultants, explained:
“Whether your genetic data is transformed into NFTs, the information is then associated with an intrinsic feature that can be traced, allowing you to track where your data ends up, track the people who hold the NFT, and figure out if it is being used without your consent.”
