What Is the Metaverse?
The Metaverse is a virtual world that exists in the form of an online, 3D environment. It is a shared space where users can interact with each other and explore different worlds. The term was first coined by Neal Stephenson in his 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash, which described a future version of the internet as an immersive 3D experience. In this vision, people could create their own avatars to represent themselves and move around within the virtual world.
