No one knows exactly what the metaverse will look like yet, and which companies will become the success stories of the future. But the Netherlands is the most 'metaverse-suitable' country and a number of Dutch startups already play a significant role in this. Internationally, what are the metaverse companies and stocks to watch?
The Netherlands was recently named the world's most metaverse-ready country, thanks to its strong digital infrastructure, highly skilled workforce and supportive government policies. This is good news for Amsterdam's stock market, which is home to a number of Web3 stocks that could offer growth opportunities at a faster rate than more traditional global technology stocks.
According to Uswitch research, the Netherlands has one of the highest average fixed broadband speeds at 106.51 Mbps. We also produced about $6,000 in high-tech exports per capita last year.
The Netherlands and the metaverse companies
One of the key players in the Amsterdam metaverse scene is the Dutch blockchain company Blockdata. Blockdata is a leading provider of blockchain infrastructure and services, and the technology is used by some of the world's largest companies and governments. The company's shares have performed well in recent years and are expected to continue to grow as more and more companies adopt blockchain technology.
In addition, Odyssey is a company to keep an eye on. This Dutch startup is focused on the metaverse and on this platform companies can create their own social 3D world, taking ownership of the environment. A number of well-known users are the Dutch Government, SAP and Vattenfall.
Another company that is active in the Dutch market is Beemup. Beemup is building an open metaverse ecosystem by helping artists, brands, and businesses successfully build metaspaces in Unreal Engine. Simply put: a virtual world that you can visit via your phone or computer as an avatar. For example, when visiting a show or a concert in the metaverse. You can walk around and talk to other visitors.
