While the idea of a centralized virtual world may sound more like something out of a sci-fi movie than a real-life concept, the truth is that it has already arrived. Virtual experiences have recently become more persistent and advanced, with the popularization of cryptocurrency investment, augmented and virtual reality, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Millions of people spend hours every day in virtual social spaces such as Roblox and Fortnite.
Experts project that the idea of the metaverse will only become more embedded into our society in the coming years, and the proof seems to be all around us. What does that mean for the future of human communication and engagement? Where is your place within the metaverse lie, and should you begin investing into cryptocurrencies now?
Changing America’s last virtual panel of the year plans to investigate these questions and more.
