The doors of the Metaverse are accessible to anyone interested, through the various platforms that have contributed to its start. Through the advertising platforms, virtual reality can be linked to a fantasy video game or to never-before-seen worlds. On these advertising platforms you can create an avatar and interact with other users – have a coffee, go for a walk, see a concert, attend a fashion show or an art exhibition.
Some of the platforms can just be accessed via web browser, thus offering a limited immersive experience, while others let you access the virtual worlds via mobile and AR/VR wearable devices.
While a gaming platform can combine multiplayer dynamics with the ability for users to create content, a blockchain-based platform may go much further, allowing participants to own property, and start a business venture. The Metaverse leverages on the blockchain technology to create ways to monetize the experience, similar to the real world, though a virtual one.
