The bank is also developing expertise in blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, DeFi and other innovative solutions that could revolutionize the financial market in a few years. Knowledge gained is being used to prepare PKO Bank for the challenges ahead.

Every decade or so, the technology industry experiences a revolution that completely changes its development direction. The Metaverse, viewed from a decades’ perspective, has the potential to serve as a developmental impetus for the global economy, akin to the emergence of the personal computer, the Internet, or smartphones in the past. I would like PKO Bank Polski to be ready to take advantage of the opportunities involved and, once the Metaverse has matured, to set the pace in the technological development of the domestic banking sector and the Polish economy. This goal is achieved through the accumulation of knowledge and experience gained during our presence in the Metaverse. That’s why we decided to move our banking icon, PKO Rotunda, to the Metaverse world and launch our first branch there.

Paweł Gruza | Vice President of PKO Bank Polski’s Management Board, said in a statement.

Goal:

PKO BP maintain its leadership status in delivering innovative financial technologies, satisfying customer needs and supporting Polish entrepreneurship. Continuously investing in development and the responsible implementation of modern solutions to ensure the convenience of managing finances from anywhere and at any time.

PKO Bank’s goal is to build the knowledge and experience it will need to use the new channel to communicate with customers, and to see in practice the other opportunities a Metaverse presence can offer. As a first step, Bank will explore the potential of the Metaverse to provide a more immersive onboarding experience for new employees and provide tailored training.

New solutions in this domain have the potential to assist in overcoming the obstacles that corporations across the globe are currently confronting following the transition to hybrid work modes.

At the same time, the Bank will develop solutions for creating a new channel for communicating with customers. Over the next decade, it will also devise solutions pertaining to identifying customers’ identities in meta- worlds and evaluate the feasibility of integrating banking products.
