[PRESS RELEASE – Stockholm, Sweden, 10th May 2022]
Metabloxz enters into a cooperation with one of Sweden’s largest pharmacy chains. Last week, Kronans Apotek opened its first demo pharmacy in the Metaverse. The launch took place during SIME, Northern Europe’s leading strategic event on digitization.
In cooperation with the Metaverse platform Metabloxz, the pharmacy chain wants to explore the possibilities for future e-commerce in the virtual world. The Metaverse Pharmacy is the latest innovation in Kronans Apotek’s digital journey and a pilot project exploring the future of retail.
Jonny Youssef, CEO and Co-Founder of Metabloxz, said: “It is an honor and a pleasure to work with Linda Wakeham and Kronans Apotek to help them accelerate into the Metaverse with Metabloxz. I am very impressed with their ability to go from idea to decision and delivery. Kronan’s Apotek is likely the first pharmacy to explore and launch Metaverse, and we’re excited to be a part of their Metaverse journey.”
Linda Wakeham, Head of PR Strategy at Kronans Apotek says: “We believe that the pharmacy of the future is about being able to offer customers the best possible service across all channels. Whether it’s the Metaverse, no one knows, but it’s important for us to be at the forefront of digital development and examine how we can meet the demands of the future.”
Metabloxz is a scalable and flexible metaverse platform that also represents a true bridge between the physical and digital worlds. This is achieved through the use of Blockchainand tokenization technology to link physical world objects to Metabloxz’s Metaverse world. Also by integrating traditional companies and services to provide a seamless experience for the end user. The merging between the physical and digital worlds has been accelerated due to COVID lockdowns around the world.
