Talking about the same, Rajat Ojha, CEO of Gamitronics, the company behind India's first-ever Metaverse Concert, said in a press statement, “We have finally reached the Metaverse or Digital India. 15 Lakh people logged on to watch the concert together, but our servers weren't ready to handle such a high volume, so we hit a snag! But we managed to handle the glitch and fix the server problem. It gives me great pleasure to share with you that more than 2 crore people have seen this Digital India initiative thanks to your wishes and support. My fans have given the concert a whole new dimension by appreciating our efforts in collaboration with Gamitronics, who developed PartyNite, and I am grateful for their support for giving the concert a whole new dimension. Thank you.”
