Project Dollar Dollar

In the Metaverse, where the virtual and the real world are converging, and hence the economies and finances of both worlds, our understanding of this financial convergence is still lacking. Through our design, we hope to bridge that gap through creating a safe environment in the Metaverse where learners get to practice and develop their financial literacy skills.

Our design supports social connectedness in order to improve employee well-being. Both regulation of emotions and genuine self-disclosure have been shown to enhance one's well-being (Luo & Hancock, 2020; Restubog et al., 2020). In having a place to share and participate in shared pain points of remote work isolation and mental wellness, remote workers can partake in a larger community and have access to advice on mental wellness in the remote workspace.
