Since Facebook announced that it was going to change its name to ‘Meta’, the term metaverse has become a huge buzzword, and it has even spilled over to the decentralised, tokenized space. And yet, the nuanced technology behind it is not really new. Blockchain, Virtual reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) which we will be accessing the open metaverse have been around for a decade and more. Synthetic media and computer games that make these virtual worlds look so realistic have been in development long before you even acquire your first Xbox. Simply put, the demand of consumers and maturity of the technology behind it has now made it possible to move the world into the web3.0 era.
