The metaverse is a virtual digital world in which individuals can explore and earn money interacting with this virtual 3D space through the use of cryptocurrencies.
The term Metaverse has become quite popular in recent years. The term originates from a novel published by Neal Stephenson in 1992, called Snow Crash.
In the novel Snow Crash, human 'avatars' interacted in a 3d world.
“In the lingo, this imaginary place is known as the Metaverse. Hiro spends a lot of time in the Metaverse.”
What does 'Meta' in Metaverse mean?
When Neal Stephenson coined the term Metaverse, it's believed he intended the first part of the word "meta" to mean the idea of transcending reality (as in metaphysics). Today, the term is more often used to refer to 'self-referential' or distinct from the "real-world'.
How Does the Metaverse Work?
The metaverse is a 'virtual place' where individuals via their avatars can interact socially and professionally. As the metaverse grows in popularity and more people enter this virtual space, it may become the dominant place where people spent both their work and leisure time.
Already there are individuals who work and live full time within the metaverse and earn their income from it. As this trend continues, we will likely see the metaverse grow into a dominant domain where people spent the bulk of their waking time.

What is VR?
