Our 13th guest on the #FintechandWeb3Founders series is Ramana Kumar, CEO of Magnati, who shares with us his vision of building an app store for payments with Magnati where customers and merchants can find multiple solutions within one platform.

The insightful discussion along with our host, Ronit Ghose touched upon making payments in the Metaverse, what it takes to be an app store of payments, and the role of the UAE regulators in embracing Fintech. Magnati’s launch of the Middle East’s first Metaverse marketplace is part of its vision of ‘Experiential E-commerce’, a new virtual retail world. Magnati’s metaverse platform is fully integrated with traditional payment rails and gateways to facilitate transactions. It is opening up ways for online retailers to reach their customers in a fully immersive experience through virtual stores. Meanwhile, users are able to experiment, pick up and purchase products in a realistic, multi-dimensional environment.
