Solana Metaverses

So, what is a Metaverse?

Well, since this is a very young concept, it’s hard to define it. Some experts say that Metaverse is any virtual space where you can perform any actions and interact with other virtual avatars.

However, according to the most popular definitions, a Metaverse is somewhat of a “virtual-reality space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users.”

This trend shows that people are ready to invest millions of dollars into the Metaverses — and their bullishness is understandable, with Metaverses already making millions of dollars. Just one of many examples: MOBLAND project’s TVL has exceeded $100 million.
