About Theme

The term ‘Meta’ is simply an amorphous term used to refer to an as-yet-underdeveloped future of the Internet. It is supposed to take the form of a VR based virtual universe, functioning as more of a platform and with greater development and commercialization capabilities. Companies have begun to spend and earn millions of dollars on “Virtual Real Estate”, or specific plots of virtual land in virtual spaces. The Metaverse enables you to transfer virtual goods like clothing or cars from one platform to another. Hence, the Metaverse Ecosystem allows human users to live and play within a self-sustaining, persistent, and shared realm.
