The concept of the metaverse is opening up opportunities in the blockchain space. A metaverse will give some an alternate reality, where they can interact with others, carry out daily activities, and even earn income. Some brands are already researching how metaverse will improve their operations and revenue streams.
The term ‘metaverse’ has been linked to the author of a SciFi novel called Snow Crash. Coined by Neal Stephenson in 1992, this book describes a make-believe alternative universe in vivid detail. It combines features like augmented reality, virtual reality, and similar elements that allow users to live their regular lives in the ecosystem.
Examples of applications in the metaverse include blockchain-based platforms already driving advancements in development and creating opportunities.
