The fourth edition of TheHop comes to a close this year, ending a cycle of four editions in which more than 35 pilot projects were undertaken in Spain and Brazil. The fourth edition included different leading startups and companies such as MIT, IE, Amazon, and more. In its fifth edition, TheHop will focus on WEB 3, searching the entrepreneur ecosystem for use cases related to Metaverse, tokenization of assets, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and DAOs.
TheHop Web3 Ventures
TheHop will change its name to TheHop Web3 Ventures, placing focus on use cases related to the tokenization of assets, cryptocurrency, NFTs, Metaverse, and DAOs. TheHop Web3 Ventures begins this new program with three main collaborators: Telefónica Tech, Bit2me, and AWS, with which it will begin its first projects. TheHop will also have the full support of VALHALLA as Innovation Partner.
TheHop has evolved every year, initially focusing on key areas of the Estrella Galicia group and, since 2020, with the main focus on the use of digital solutions that bring value to hospitality and the end consumer, obtaining multiple insights of value and promoting different initiatives. The evolution of TheHop has been unstoppable, adapting to the needs and opportunities of the company and the market. For this reason, TheHop is now going a step further to become TheHop Web3 Ventures, the vehicle for Web3 innovation of MOVE Estrella Galicia Digital through which the company will approach this new ecosystem.
The Move to Web3
Over the last few years, Web3 has experienced a huge growth in global adoption, and many companies are starting to position themselves in this new territory, from major technology companies to automotive companies and restaurant chains.
JJ Delgado, General Manager of MOVE Estrella Galicia Digital, stated that: "In line with our philosophy of doing things differently, we are going to immerse ourselves in the Web3 ecosystem to create and incorporate solutions that bring value to our community. We recently announced our commitment to decentralize BigCrafters.com, the marketplace for artisan products which we launched a few months ago, and where we are going to identify Web3 use cases which allow us to work towards our goal".
The aim of TheHop Web3 Ventures is to develop new internal capacities, explore the new opportunities potentially offered by Web3 and co-create different initiatives with companies that are key in the Web3 ecosystem in areas such as NFTs, cryptocurrencies, tokenization DAOs, and Metaverse, using the methodology, network, and learnings obtained through TheHop.
Gerard Gracia Arcas, Head of Digital Business Innovation at MOVE Estrella Galicia Digital, stated that: "TheHop Web3 Ventures starts this new adventure accompanied by three collaborators that are key in this sector, Telefónica Tech, Bit2Me, and AWS, and will be incorporating new allies in the coming months. Any Web3 company will be able to connect with TheHop through its new website to propose projects to bring value to the initiatives we are to undertake, and we will approach each of them based on the needs of each Project".
In 2023, the public can expect to see the first Web3 projects promoted by TheHop, and with a slew of varying initiatives already in the works, next year promises to bring exciting new developments from TheHop Web3 Ventures.

As HTC Vive continues to commit its efforts to new and innovative technologies, the company has announced its plans to team up with Imversed. Imversed is an easy-to-use VR/AR land management platform that gives users the capability to create their own GameFi currency. This currency can be used to purchase virtual real estate, 3D assets, and experiences within the Imversed metaverse.
The partnership between HTC Vive and Imversed will help to bring VR/AR technology and metaverse to a larger audience. The companies will work together to provide a no-code platform that allows users to easily create and manage their own virtual currency pool. In addition, they will also be able to manage their digital assets, in-game items and experiences with ease, compatible with multiple metaverse platforms.
"HTC Vive is a strong partner in the VR/AR industry, and we are excited to be working with them. We believe that our partnership will help to bring Imversed's easy-to-use land management platform to a larger audience," said Ed Ow, the Chairman of Imversed.
To make the platform work, Imversed also has its own blockchain that supports ERC-721 hybrid smart contracts, which is perfectly transferable with the Ethereum chain and has an extra layer of security implemented by Imversed chain itself. This allows for a high degree of security and immutability, as well as the ability to trade in-game assets with other players. The partnership between HTC Vive and Imversed will no doubt help spur on further adoption of blockchain technology in the gaming industry.
Imversed plans to launch its public chain in mid-November and will offer the first sales of its land in December. Imversed also plans to release an avatar uploader that will allow users to easily upload any form of avatar, whether in GLP or VRM format. The avatar dimensions will be standardized so that they fit within the land sizes available in the Imversed metaverse. This will ensure that users have a smooth and seamless experience when navigating between virtual worlds.
Imversed believes that the definition of a metaverse is the word "meta," which means to encompass all things and be a very open-minded company. Imversed is committed to making the metaverse easily accessible to anyone from any platform, including those from other metaverse projects.
