Mizuho Bank to Launch in Second Life

Category: Banking by Stone Culdesac

The Japanese bank, Mizuho, will launch a Ferris wheel(?) in Second Life, as a new way to promote its services. The Mizuho Financial Group Inc will be the first major Japanese bank to launch in Second Life, if you really want to call this a launch. Avatars can ride the Ferris wheel once the answer some questions about the banks services and products. Which brings up a couple questions, will it be in Japanese only, and why a Ferris wheel? What is the connection?

A Mizuho bank representative said they are considering connecting Second Life to it’s Internet banking system, which is good news certainly, as we would finally have a bank backed by something other than some anonymous avatars word.

No date as to when any of this will happen was listed on the announcement.
