What exactly is a metaverse?
With all the news surrounding Facebook and its new name, you might have heard of the word Metaverse and probably wondering what it means.

Verse, in the sense of universe which means everything.
Metaverse is a generalized concept; there isn’t a one-size-fits-all definition to what a metaverse means. Simply put, a Metaverse is a world or space in digital form with people, places and things that are digitally represented by objects.
Metaverse can currently be seen in several aspects of our lives like when you’re in a Zoom meeting. You are “there” in the room, but not in physical reality. In other words, Metaverse is a broader context for “bringing people together”.
Meetings is just one of the many things metaverse can be used for among others like NFTs, education, entertainment, gaming, marketing can all be redesigned for the Metaverse.
