What is the Metaverse and how does it work?

Imagine that you could transport yourself to a world where everything is possible, with no borders, no laws of physics, where you can do everything you want, and the fastest way to get there is from your own home. Metaverse is the tech world’s next big thing, but it’s still a long ways from delivering on its promise.

It turns out that this place exists and is called Metaverse. Welcome! Today we will tell you what it is and how this fantastic virtual world works within everyone's reach.


As the name implies, the Metaverse is a reality or a virtual environment that does not exist physically but is an extension of the real world in which humans can interact socially, economically, and even politically. This virtual universe is contained within a software-controlled that tries to replicate the real world but without limitations or borders.


METAVERSE OR METAVERSES?

When discussing the Metaverse, people usually think that it is a single virtual world analogous to the real world we know. Currently, what we have is not one but many metaverses that compete with each other.


Some of the most popular metaverses are NVIDIA OMNIVERSE, FORTNITE, MINECRAFT, ROBLOX, THE SANDBOX, among many others.


All these virtual worlds are independent of each other, meaning that a user of the Metaverse of Fornite cannot interact directly with a user in the Metaverse of The Sandbox.
