2. Project Area-Virtual Economy
Citi Challenges Sponsored by
With the rise of the concept of metaverse, people pay more attention to the virtual economy. Gaming has transformed from an recreational activity to a social platform for brands and virtual commerce and is starting to grow rapidly. Different with the real-world economies which has significant growth. Financial services in the virtual economies are extremely immature but need to grow fast to support the exponential growth in these economies.

With the growth of ‘Game as a platform’ model, we are going to facing more challenges, such as: the solutions for payments, forex and lending etc. For the financial institution they focus more on maintain better control of assets on social and legal to supply services to gamers. Clients need trusted institutions to manage the digital identities for end gamers to build trust and security.

Rise of competitive activity amongst peer banks and a rise of fintech with dedicated solutions for the virtual economy space are a threat to Citi. Could you help Citi to build a new system for metaverse companies, gamers or other metaverse end users to take the opportunities, selecting below one or more features to innovate, such as onboarding users, tokenization, custody of cryptos and NFTs, and meanwhile manage the potential risks such as anti-money laundering (AML) and various credit/counterparty risks.

Competition Introduction

With the continuous reform and opening up of China’s financial sector, Information Technology (IT) has increasingly become the fundamental driving force for the continuous innovation and healthy development of the financial service industry. At the same time, the majority of college students haven’t fully grasped the importance of IT to the financial industry, and lack the channels to acquire relevant practical knowledge and practical experience.

Aiming to support the development of China’s education and financial technology innovation through the cultivation of Financial IT interdisciplinary talents, Citigroup Services and Technology (China) Limited (hereinafter referred to as “CSTC”) formally established Citi Financial IT Education Fund Program in April 2004. Citi Financial Innovation Application Competition (formerly known as “Citi Financial IT Application Competition”, hereinafter referred to as “Citi Cup”) is an important part of the program, which aims to guide students to combine what they have learned with the development of the financial industry as well as social progress. Stimulate students' passion for science & technology as well as the financial industry, encourage teamwork, comprehensively use the knowledge they have learned, burst out financial innovations, and propose solutions with commercial prospects.

Since its establishment in 2005, Citi Cup has been recognized as a benchmark event in China's financial information technology sector, and has been supported by the Chinese government, education and industry for many years. More than 19,000 students and more than 1,900 teachers have participated in the competition. Every year, tens of thousands of teachers and students learn about the event online and in person. At the same time, through the accumulation of knowledge and experience in the competition, participants over the years have enjoyed positive development in their career in related industries such as Finance and IT after graduation.
