Time magazine has published a list of the 100 most influential companies in the world in 2022. Among the pioneers were OpenSea (the largest NFT marketplace) and The Sandbox (the metaverse).

Sandbox named one of the top 100 most influential companies

The publication included in the list those companies that shape the future of various sectors of the economy, including healthcare, entertainment, technology.

Companies were selected according to criteria such as “relevance”, “influence”, “innovation”, “leadership”, “ambition” and “success”. They were also categorized as pioneers, titans, leaders, innovators, and disruptors.

OpenSea made the list thanks to the project’s significant role in the NFT hype. The trading volume on the marketplace jumped 646 times last year, to $14.6 billion.

The Sandbox appears in the Top 100 as an example of a “new world”. Sales of digital land in the metaverse project exceeded $2 billion. In a year, the number of its owners jumped by 375% to 19,000. The number of users of The Sandbox reached 2.1 million. “They own part of this new world and contribute to its creation”, says Mataverse co-founder Sebastien Borge about Sandbox users.

Big brands and celebrities are also getting in on the action: in February, Gucci bought Sandbox land for an undisclosed amount “to create an interactive shopping experience,” while Snoop Dogg sold thousands of in-game avatars for around $475 each.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the HSBC bank acquired a virtual piece of land in the Sandbox metaverse.

Major Indian retailer Reliance Retail has implemented support for digital rupee payments in one of its Freshpik stores and plans to expand this experience to all formats of the network.

One of the largest retail chains in India, Reliance Retail, began accepting digital rupees as part of a pilot project.

V Subramaniam, chief executive of Reliance Retail, noted that the adoption of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is in line with the firm’s vision of providing “choice” to Indian consumers. The executive also emphasized that this initiative gives the firm the opportunity to offer an alternative payment method in its stores.

To make a purchase, customers only need to scan a QR code.

“Indians will get another efficient and secure alternative payment method” — said the top manager.

The deployment of CBDC was made possible through collaboration with ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Innovative Technologies.

Plans for the country’s CBDC were laid out by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on October 7, 2022. The country’s central bank has identified various factors, including the potential positive and negative impact of the digital rupee on the country. According to the RBI, one of the motivations for creating a CBDC is to reduce the operating costs of managing cash.

It seems that Samsung took into account the problems with the Galaxy S22 line of smartphones and did not repeat them in new devices when it comes to cooling systems.

Well-known insider Ice Universe has published a visual comparison of the approximate sizes of cooling systems in each flagship of the past generation and the new one.

As you can see, all systems have become noticeably larger, and in the younger model, instead of a graphite film, an evaporation chamber has appeared.

Whether this is enough for the new products not to overheat and not throttling so much, tests will show, but the performance, as we can already see, is really good. Recall that today we also saw a comparison of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S23 Ultra cameras.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the notch in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and about Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor.
