“Walmart is continuously exploring how emerging technologies may shape future shopping experiences,” a Walmart spokesperson was quoted as saying in media reports.

“We are testing new ideas all the time. Some ideas become products or services that make it to customers. And some we test, iterate, and learn from,” according to the company.

Other retailers also have plans to enter the metaverse, like Nike, which aims to introduce NFTs and virtual sneakers, while Adidas selling out of its Metaverse’ NFT collection.

Gap has also started selling NFTs of its iconic logo sweatshirts.

The market for transactions in the Metaverse is expected to reach $6.1 billion this year, as tech giants like Meta (formerly Facebook) aim big on VR/AR-based technology to bring deeper immersive experiences to billions in the future.

According to research firm Strategy Analytics, the global Metaverse market is forecast to hit nearly $42 billion globally by 2026.

Social media giant Facebook has said it will spend more than $10 billion to build out its vision for Metaverse.
