Facebook changed its name to Meta.  “A magical Zoom meeting that has all the playful release of Animal Crossing.” -Janet Murra  This is one explanation of what the *metaverse* is.  And this may be our future.
What exactly is the metaverse? The metaverse is a variety of virtual experiences, environments, and assets.  Sort of like "Ready Player One."
It's tough to explain because it doesn't necessarily exist yet.  We're still in the early days of creating the metaverse.  Facebook (Meta) says “The ‘metaverse’ is a set of virtual spaces where you can create and explore with other people who aren’t in the same physical space as you.”
How will the metaverse affect us?
1) Work. The metaverse will be the future of work. We'll have the ability to fully immerse ourselves into our work and collaborate with others in virtual meeting rooms.
2) Entertainment. The metaverse will provide a place to explore whatever interests you. You'll be able to play games, attend concerts, and watch movies with your friends all at once.
3) Learning. A lot of people don't have access to good teachers. We are now able to use things like virtual reality for education purposes - immersing ourselves into simulations and environments for better learning.

1) Advertising: Become the solution for advertising in the metaverse. How can you make it easy for companies to create effective and native ads in these virtual worlds?
2) Entertainment: Fornite held a Travis Scott concert in their game. Try facilitating your own events in the metaverse. Maybe monetize through tickets using cryptocurrency?
3) Different Worlds: Right now, you can't travel from one world to another (ie. Fortnite to Roblox). Can you be the platform that enables this for companies? What about transferring NFTs and assets across worlds?
