Metaverse, what does the future look like?

13 May 2022

We have all heard about the Metaverse, it’s probably the hottest word right now after Web3.0.

We have all talked about the Metaverse, whether it’s VR, AR, or gaming. 

So... What does the Metaverse mean to our ever-changing lives and the way we do business?

Come find out as we’re hosting a variety of guests, ranging from gaming experts, builders/developers, and community users.

Ask a question for your chance to be in the metaverse with them face to face, or should we say "avatar to avatar"?

Why should you be there?

We wanted to host a talk about the metaverse in the Metaverse. Hosted on xSpaces, there will be many different voices, each with their own perspective. You will get to meet like-minded enthusiasts of the Metaverse and crypto and those looking to get into the space.

 

Why even use the Metaverse?

The Metaverse adds another level to interaction and socialisation in the digital space. Users can experience worlds unlike they have seen before while making connections with people across the globe. 

 

Will I need a VR headset?

Nope. While a VR headset is necessary for the full immersive experience, xSpaces can be downloaded as an app you can use directly from your phone.
