How businesses can make the most of the metaverse and NFTs
The metaverse has become a hot topic for the business community. The word “metaverse” first appeared in the science fiction novel Snow Crash by American writer Neal Stephenson, published in 1992. In Stevenson’s book, the metaverse is a VR space that duplicates the real world and where people can communicate and interact just like offline. Events in one world affect life in another world, and sometimes it is impossible to separate the two worlds. The idea of the metaverse was vividly illustrated in Ready Player One, a 2018 American science fiction adventure film based on Ernest Cline’s novel.
