While the metaverse is still very much in its prototype stage, Mark Zuckerberg believes that by the end of the decade we will have shifted into the grand metaverse.
The concept isn’t new news, innovative technologies that have been disrupting the financial services industry since the Bitcoin network came into existence in January 2009 can be used to enable the continuity of data in the metaverse. NFTs are an excellent example of how blockchain technology can be used to verify the ownership of digital assets, and there are already 3D virtual reality platforms that take advantage of them.
Decentraland, is an example of a universe that enables the user to to move from universe to universe with their digital belongings and is a fully decentralised world that doesn’t have any central leadership. The world is based on the Ethereum blockchain, and it’s controlled by a decentralised autonomous organisation. Through this organisation and voting, players can control the policies that determine how the world behaves. Decentraland also has its decentralised currency, MANA, which can be exchanged on cryptocurrency exchanges for other currencies.
With this in mind, here are a few resources that creative freelancers can look into – and are, namely, relevant – when it comes to the metaverse;
