The internet has evolved over time, and the result of this advancement is the Metaverse. We live in a time when a massive change in human history is taking place, and our lives are bound to spill over into the Metaverse.
It is a virtual reality/augmented virtual reality world that allows you to make online social connections. The term metaverse was coined by Neal Stephenson in 1992 in his science fiction novel ‘Snow Crash,’ in which he envisioned lifelike avatars meeting in realistic 3D buildings and other digital reality environments. But this virtual world received recognition when Facebook, now known as Meta, embraced the new name, based on the sci-fi term metaverse, to potray its vision for working in a virtual reality environment.
The term “metaverse” refers to a broad change in how we communicate and interact using technology in this rapidly expanding world.
Virtual reality (VR), characterized by persistent digital ecosystem that exist even when you’re not playing and augmented reality (AR), which combines elements of the digital and physical worlds, are two examples of the technologies that collectively make up the metaverse. However, it is not necessary for those spaces to only be accessible through VR or AR.
A metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds centered on social interaction, which can be summed up as a simulated digital environment that combines blockchain, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) with ideas from digital media to produce settings for rich user interaction that mimic the real world.
As Web3 technology enabled by blockchain technology begins to be incorporated into the metaverse concept, the future metaverse will resemble our real world in many ways and may even replace some real-world activities.
The use of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in metaverse games like clothing and footwear has already been made possible by some NFT vendors, and more are planning to enter the market.
NFT fans are also becoming more aware of opportunities to invest in virtual lands on these games and then rent or sell them for a profit. Future metaverse development could also significantly impact the development of the virtual economy, which depends on online games and virtual worlds where disruptions are nil.
As a result, both users and creators benefit greatly, and this can be amplified if non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are incorporated into in-game assets, allowing for virtual economy decentralization.
Today, we have a nascent version of the metaverse, with digital goods such as NFTs portraying popular art and digital collectibles devoured by investors and crypto fans.
With significant powers like Meta entering this space and confidently indicating that it may be the new future, it is only a subject of time before other entities follow suit. It has the potential to exponentially expand the limits of the metaverse and unlock vast amounts of value previously unknown to consumers and investors alike.
The metaverse’s future also includes running openly, almost without interruption from a single community or company, as more creators from around the world seek to open outlets on the broader metaverse, just as they do on the internet today.
