The metaverse idea popped in a novel - Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, explaining a shared digital environment that people access using VR glasses and fiber optics network. Meta Platforms, Inc. is not the first tech giant to be fascinated by the metaverse idea. With its announcement, the metaverse is open up to new potentials - working, learning, meetings, shopping, and so on.



NFTs and Cryptos

In the platform, we can create our own space and communicate with others by leveraging an avatar. We can either own a virtual property or create a property and sell it to other metaverse users for NFTs. The users can also exchange their metaverse crypto or invest the tokens to get collectible items. Several platforms leveraging game sites are using their own tokens for the exchange of fiat currency. Working, playing, or living in a virtual world need cryptos. Here we will see some of the best metaverse cryptos for better investment decisions.
