Web3 = Metaverse


How is Web3 related to the metaverse, the other confusing tech word I can’t escape these days?

The metaverse, if you’ve been following along, is the term we’re using these days for immersive digital worlds in which users can socialize, play games, attend meetings and do other activities together. Web3 is an essential part of the metaverse, because it would allow for the creation of metaverses that aren’t controlled by a single company or governed by a single set of rules. Many objects in the metaverse may also be crypto tokens. Your metaverse avatar might be an NFT. Your metaverse house might come with governance tokens or qualify you to join a neighborhood DAO.
