No longer just a pipe dream, the heretofore elusive Web3-based initiatives are finally starting to make headway where it counts: in the daily life of consumers. One such step is the launch of Mana Interactive’s VR banking app, dubbed the Mana VR.

As a refresher, Mana Interactive is a neobank – one that exists exclusively online – and geared toward enthusiastic gamers. The bank offers a simple deposit account that is paired with a visa debit card. Mana allows gamers to accumulate rewards as they spend money. These rewards can then be redeemed for gift cards, in-game assets, etc.

Bear in mind that Mana Interactive has partnered with MVB Bank – a member of the FDIC – in order to provide holistic banking services to gamers. The company earns money through in-store sales and via advertisement of its commercial partners’ products.

Mana VR – The Future of Banking

Mana Interactive’s greatest strength is its ability to provide a unified platform for gamers to store and spend their money, all the while earning enticing rewards from gameplay and purchases.

The Mana VR forms a crucial component of what the company calls the Manaverse – a virtual reality environment for interacting with the Mana banking app. Gamers can now check their account balances, view recent transactions, and do much more without removing their VR headsets!
