CES is an annual event showcasing the latest technology exhibits and headlines from giants such as LG, Samsung, Amazon, Nvidia and Sony.

We solve important problems with today’s top experts,” said the preview of the Decrypting Crypto panel.

According to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) conference organizer, several leading brands will use their seats at the event to explore and promote developments in metaverse technologies such as “hardware, software, blockchain and cryptocurrency.”

Speaking of Samsung’s plans for CES – the manufacturer recently stepped up its blockchain initiatives by announcing the NFT platform for new smart TVs – Brian Comiski, CTA’s senior director of industry analysis, told The Australian:

“We’re really going to take a look at Samsung. Their smartphone progression on the show will be an interesting field to see from the Metaverse side. Their TVs will show what they can do for Metaverse. ”
“They are really trying to be a one-stop shop for the various internet economies and technologies,” he added.

Comiski made some optimistic statements about cryptocurrency, blockchain technology and NFT when he talked about interest from large companies, and described them as “the future development of payments and what trade will look like” that will grow with the metaverse.

“I think NFT and cryptocurrency really represent an opportunity for blockchain technology to become more popular with consumers,” he said.
