What is the Metaverse?
The metaverse is a collection of virtual realms. Each of these realms is like a 3D virtual city where avatars of real people live, work, socialize and carry out everyday activities. These virtual cities contain buildings that include; office spaces, banks, lounges, museums, apartments, etc. There, the avatars carry out real-life activities. If you have played video games where you had to carry out real-life activities and socialize with people as a 3D or 2D avatar you have had a taste of the coming metaverse.
