Making sense of the Metaverse

Have you heard the term ‘metaverse’ bounded around recently? Have you been trying to get your head around what this is, what it means for you, for your city or how it relates to other techy terms like blockchain, crypto and web 3.0.?

Well, if this sounds familiar, this article is for you.

In ‘How to Explain the ‘Metaverse’ to your grandparents’, Aaron Frank shows how in many cases you could replace the word ‘metaverse’ with ‘internet’ and states that to a certain extent we’re ‘using the term as a proxy for a sense that everything is about to change’. Whether you’re excited or terrified, surely you want to understand it all a bit more. It’s quite a long read but really worth the effort. You might not follow all of it as it’s quite mind blowing but it gives a flavour of what the future of tech holds for us, in the not too distant future.
