The recent reveal of Singapore’s first curated Metaverse ecosystem - Goya Universe.

Online PR News – 01-December-2022 – SINGAPORE – Web3Re Technologies Pte Ltd, a local social enterprise and Blockchain-as-a-Service (BAAS) solutions company, recently unveiled Singapore’s first curated Metaverse ecosystem - Goya Universe.

The event, themed ‘Blockchain for Good,’ showcased how the metaverse leverages Web3 technology for real use cases, ranging from Philanthropy and Social Impact projects, Edu-tech projects intended for regional consumption as well as metaverse e-commerce stores for B2B and B2C uses utilising blockchain technology to enhance transparency, accountability, immutability, and provenance.

Representatives from charitable organisations, impact investment initiatives, bankers, family offices, and partners such as Safe Water Gardens, Daughters of Tomorrow, Project Dignity Kitchen, SSTC Institute, Design Thinkers Academy, and Crow Yoga were in attendance to share their journey into Web3 and the metaverse.

Web3Re Technologies Group Chairman, Mr. Ricky Tan, officially launched the platform with a virtual “Metaverse Grand Opening of Goya Universe’s HQ office” on its platform.

Goya Universe CEO Mr. Lim Soon Ying expressed, “Goya Universe’s launch signals a pivotal juncture for blockchain innovation. We aspire to distinguish ourselves from the bells and whistles of the metaverse and its use cases and demonstrate how we apply the technology in today's business environment.”

“Where most businesses at the very least need an email, a web page, or an e-commerce platform on a Web1.5 or Web2 space, Goya Universe's ecosystem is intent on aiding businesses to successfully transition onto Web3 by curating an immersive and interactive virtual store where consumers and active users on the platform can seamlessly obtain more information about the business and its offerings. In this, Goya Universe hopes to demonstrate how organisations can be future-ready and embrace the future today," Lim added.

Web3Re Technologies has also taken Goya Universe to another level by propositioning itself as a platform where charities and social impact organisations can leverage the power of blockchain to enhance further public trust and confidence in communicating clearly, how the funds donated or contributed are deployed through blockchain and automated through smart contracts.

Empowerment through Education and Technology
Goya also launched the “Empowerment through Education and Technology” initiative during the event, with Web3Re Group Chairman Mr. Ricky Tan announcing a S$500,000 sponsorship program for attendees of its courses.
This was followed by the announcement of Dr. Lilian Koh’s appointment as the new Dean and Co-founder of Goya Universe’s Learning Academy starting 1 December 2022.

Dr. Koh brings with her decades of experience in the education sector. She is also the founder and CEO of Fintech Academy Singapore and has held various senior portfolios in the education sector, including with the MOE as Senior Curriculum Specialist, and was a faculty member of the National Institute of Education, Singapore, under NTU. She also held various positions as a faculty associate at A*Star, Consultant to UNESCO, NHG, Pearson, MYOB, NETs, CITI, and many other esteemed institutions.

Driven by Goya’s principles of ‘Empowerment through Education and Technology’, Dr. Koh's appointment spearheads Goya’s growth locally and in the region by focusing on pedagogical and curriculum development to make quality education affordable and improve employability.

Goya also launched the first halal mall on the metaverse. And on the occasion of the upcoming Lunar New Year, Goya Universe will also reveal its collectible limited edition Zodiac-inspired NFTs to the public. These are limited edition collectibles with funds raised fully utilised to support charities and social impact causes on its platform.
