Roc Nation Buys Undisclosed Amount of Tokens for Still-Unreleased Social VR Platform Sensorium Galaxy
As the world catapults towards remote and virtual everything, even some of the largest and most well-established corporations are struggling to keep up. On the other hand, Roc Nation remains comfortably in the lead as a pioneer of all things entertainment-related.
Led by CEO Desiree Perez, the company’s recent purchase of an undisclosed amount of SENSO tokens illustrates its dedication to utilizing the newest cutting-edge entertainment technology. SENSO tokens may not be the new Bitcoin, but they’re going to play an important role in the world’s next “big thing” — virtual reality social media platforms.
What Is Sensorium Galaxy?
Sensorium Galaxy is the world’s most technologically advanced, still-unreleased social VR platform that is poised to take the globe by storm. Users will purchase SENSO tokens to interact within the platform, much like any other in-game currency.
SENSO tokens allow users to access on-platform virtual reality shows, customize their user avatars with more detail and buy premium content not otherwise accessible. Although the futuristic platform has not yet launched its virtual concert environment, it is expected to do so in the last quarter of 2021.
In Roc Nation’s statement regarding the transaction, Desiree Perez says that Sensorium Galaxy is well-positioned to push the entertainment industry ahead. Their digital universe focuses on the quality of user experience, which is precisely what Roc Nation wants for their artist base.
Perez knew immediately that Sensorium Galaxy would become the standard for the music industry regarding virtual events and decided to push Roc Nation forward in this new direction.
About Desiree Perez
Desiree Perez became Roc Nation’s CEO in December of 2019 and was named a Billboard 2021 Change Agent. Although these titles are new to her, Perez has been working tirelessly behind the scenes in the music industry for decades. As one of the original 5 founders of Roc Nation, Perez had been helping manage Jay-Z’s career and was responsible for negotiating his $200M, 10-year worldwide music tour.
The decision to move ahead with the purchase of SENSO tokens came easily to Desiree Perez, who leads Team Roc, the company’s philanthropic division. She shares a deep commitment to helping marginalized people have a voice in the industry and has spearheaded a number of initiatives to fight racial injustices and inequality.
In 2020, Team Roc partnered with organizations like Gathering for Justice, Until Freedom, and Feeding America, garnering Billboard’s attention during a time of worldwide crisis. Now a Change Agent, Perez told Billboard, “We strengthened our resolve to fight for those who don’t have a voice. No matter what is happening, we have a platform to raise awareness and work to change the injustices in the system.”
The purchase of SENSO tokens and Perez’s statements about Roc Nation’s involvement with Sensorium Galaxy foreshadow how the company may use the social VR platform. Like Perez’s other projects, Sensorium Galaxy may become a tool for Roc Nation to reach out to disadvantaged communities and continue fighting racial inequality by meeting today’s changemakers where they are — online.
Desiree Perez was also named Billboard’s Executive of the Year in the Women In Music awards in 2019.
