The Walt Disney Company has recently posted a job advertisement and is looking to hire an experienced corporate lawyer to work on transactions involving emerging Web3 technologies, including NFTs, blockchain, metaverse, and decentralized finance (DeFi).

Despite a crypto downturn, global companies are betting big on Web 3 technologies. Even the global financial predicament is unable to deter multi-billion dollar companies to embark on the coveted Web3 journey. Recently, racing giant, Formula One, announced that it has registered NFT and virtual reality (metaverse) trademarks for the Las Vegas Strip Circuit, expected to take place in November 2023.

Disney is Delving Deeper Into the Metaverse

In July, Disney revealed the participants of its “2022 Disney Accelerator program” aimed at supporting technology and entertainment startups. The entertainment juggernaut selected blockchain firm, Polygon, as one of the six companies to participate in the Accelerator Program to develop Web 3 technologies including augmented reality (AR), non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and artificial intelligence (AI).

Earlier this year, Disney was granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office to create a real-world theme park where users will experience a 3D virtual world, using simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). As per reports, guests will be able to see holograms, projected onto 3D objects of their favorite Disney stars, artwork, or information, creating a highly immersive but personalized experience.
