Metaverse & Web 3.0
Advising at the leading-edge of the web
At the core of tech’s great new epoch is an instinct the world of gaming has grasped for years: digital items, tokens and assets should be capable of ownership just like their physical world counterparts.

With our deep tech sector focus, we have “no qualms about breaking new ground” in this space (GDR 100).
