AhnLab Blockchain Company to integrate digital wallet into Sogang University’s education metaverse
South Korean cybersecurity firm AhnLab’s blockchain arm, AhnLab Blockchain Company (ABC), is poised to collaborate with Sogang University’s Graduate School of Metaverse, according to Korean news outlet Money Today on Wednesday (KST). The entities will work on the development of Metawon Campus, a metaverse education platform currently in the works at Sogang University.
“This cooperation lays the foundation for Metawon Campus to establish itself as a practical university education platform. Through the integration of ABC Wallet, we will strive to build it into a global education metaverse based on the fundamental standards of stability, convenience and scalability,” said Hyun Dae-won, Dean of Sogang University’s Graduate School of Metaverse.
Advancing security and accessibility
This project mainly entails the integration of AhnLab Blockchain Company’s digital ABC Wallet within the platform. As a non-custodial wallet, this service uses multi-party computation to support multiple blockchain networks including Ethereum, Polygon and Klaytn. This integration has the potential to enhance the security and usability of Metawon Campus, encouraging international students to participate. To further boost security, the platform will also utilize non-transferrable SoulBound tokens (SBTs) issued by ABC Wallet. By providing services in multiple languages, the platform will be available to a wider user base as well.
In addition to technological collaborations, the two parties agreed to work on R&D and marketing as well as content creation aimed at enhancing participant engagement and accessibility to education.
Kang Suk-kyun, CEO of AhnLab Blockchain Company, emphasized the role that ABC Wallet would play in helping international students experience a more secure and liberal virtual environment on Metawon Campus. He went on to reaffirm the company’s efforts to contribute to the popularization of the metaverse and the advancement of blockchain technology.
