Why the metaverse?
The metaverse enables individuals and organizations to take control of their online identities and personal data by providing an open, public infrastructure that is syndicated across many nodes. The metaverse also provides a decentralized exchange, allowing users to buy easily, sell, or trade digital assets without a central authority.
In addition, the metaverse is working to build a user-friendly interface that will make it easy for non-technical users to access and use the metaverse platform. Overall, the metaverse is working to build a more secure, efficient, and user-friendly way for people to interact with the digital world.
How does the metaverse work?
The metaverse is the next iteration of the internet, a 3D immersive internet that we will access, among other, using virtual reality or augmented reality. It is made up of avatars, or digital representations of people, who interact with each other in real time. The metaverse is also home to virtual businesses and organizations, which function just like their real-world counterparts.
To access the metaverse, users must install special software to create an avatar and enter the virtual world. Once they are in the metaverse, they can explore it however they like. There are no rules or boundaries, meaning users can do whatever they want.
Are the metaverse and web3 the same?
The metaverse and Web 3 are not the same. Web 3 is infrastructure and can be used to create an open metaverse. However, the metaverse can perfectly exist without Web 3. In that case, the metaverse will be owned and controlled by Big Tech instead of consumers.
