We are about to explore the distinctiveness of the metaverse and its connection with web3. Certainly, there have been quite a number of stories around the metaverse, its relevance and its connection with web3, however, this is an interesting article explaining and giving more details about the metaverse.
Metaverse is a hypothetical iteration of the internet that is exclusive, versatile and an immersive virtual world, facilitated by virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR),
The metaverse is widely hyped as the subsequent stage of the internet that allows human interaction from the real world into virtual worlds. I’d instead call it the internet frontier of digital connectivity, it brings users from all over the World together to share digital content or product.
ACCESSING THE METAVERSE
The metaverse is accessible to every human regardless of race or geographical location. As an individual, what is needed to access the metaverse is the internet and the virtual reality headset (VAR). However, it is only normal for this accessibility to get better and mobile-friendly over the years.
Presently, there are games on the metaverse, games like Roblox, The Sandbox, and Fortnight. Also, musicians are hosting concerts on the metaverse; over 2 million individuals in their avatars were present at Travis Scott’s virtual concert.
WEB3 ➞ METAVERSE
The metaverse is an essential feature of web3 built on blockchain technology, enabling openness and decentralisation. Also considering that, like every web3 solution, crypto is the accepted currency on the metaverse, and transactions can be done through NFTS. The way humans live in the real world is simultaneous to how the metaverse is and the virtual representation of us could be an Artiste with NFT designs, an entertainer, a developer or a trader, trading NFTs.
The metaverse and web 3 sync so well that the metaverse can help structure the web3 digital market, and being the tangible part of the blockchain, this is very much achievable. They are also linked together due to the semantic web which is a common ground for both.
Also called the future of the internet, both the web3 and the metaverse are in the developing phase, with their applicable use cases. Inarguably, the metaverse can only exist in web3, this way, digital asset in virtual reality is secured.
Built on blockchain technology, the metaverse enables humans to travel from the real to the virtual world without losing the data they created and own.
