The metaverse is considered the next evolution of the internet
With the Metaverse becoming mainstream, what will this mean on a global scale for people, businesses, and our planet? The metaverse is referred as the next phase of the internet in which the environment becomes our interface, and massive investments have already been made in its development. The impact on our lives can feel quite overwhelming with a constant push of the boundaries that are being defined by new technology such as VR, AR, and NFTs as well as new user expectations.We are still in the early stages of the move towards the metaverse and embracing the metaverse is about long-term thinking.
What is the metaverse? And what is the difference between the internet and the metaverse? What do we already see now that points towards the metaverse, and when should you act? How will the move towards the metaverse impact you and your business? And what are the perspectives?
