What is a metaverse?
A metaverse is a virtual reality world that exists online, where users can interact with each other and create content. It is also sometimes referred to as a “virtual world” or a “3D internet”.
The term “metaverse” was first coined by Neal Stephenson in his science fiction novel Snow Crash, where he described it as “a consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts… A graphical representation of data abstracted from the banks of every computer in the human system.
