What Is The Metaverse? 

You might be wondering what exactly is the metaverse. It’s not just some buzzword. It’s what seems to be where the future of social media is evolving. Also coined web 3.0. Most initially enter the metaverse like Decentraland or Sandbox thinking that it’s a game. And while yes, you can play games inside the metaverse it’s much more than that.  It’s the future of the way brands and companies will connect and interact with their customers, and where people will be able to make meaningful relationships without an algorithm suggesting you just take a look at your best friend’s wedding photos. 

In Decentraland, one of the most popular metaverse with over 500,000 users, the users own the game. It’s completely decentralized. You can purchase land, and build whatever you wish,   there are even real casinos in the metaverse, and one clever cannabis company Kandy Girl even opened up a full blown dispensary in the metaverse touting their product was legal to ship to all 50 states earlier this month. 

How Do I Get Started In The Metaverse?

How to get started in the Metaverse? Decentraland Tutorial (MANA)

While the metaverse may seem a little complex, we promise it’s not hard to get started. Most of what happens in the metaverse all has to do with the connections you make. Twitter is a popular way for users to keep up with brands and events that are happening in the metaverse. And you’ll also probably want to familiarize yourself with discord as it’s a popular chat program where users can easily connect together to join in discussions and plan events.   

Step 1. Create A Wallet –

 A wallet is where you will store any crypto currency as well as NFTs, like in play wearable items. Your wallet address will also be used to identify your character in the metaverse. You can create as many characters as you have wallets.  In order to create a wallet follow these simple steps. 

  1. Add MetaMask to Chrome.
  2. Click on the MetaMask extension.
  3. Click on “Get Started”
  4. Select “Create a Wallet”
  5. Click on “Agree”
  6. Create a password.
  7. Store your backup phrase.(Do not lose this, if you ever lose access to your wallet you will be able to recover it using this phrase. It’s a good idea to write it down and hide it where no one will ever find it.)
  8. Confirm your backup phrase.

Step 2. Choose your metaverse. 

The party we mentioned earlier will be held in the metaverse Decentraland so if you’re looking to attend the yacht party you’ll want to click here and login with your wallet. It will ask you to create a character avatar, but you can get a bunch of cool options just by clicking the randomize button. 

After you have selected your avatar, simply jump in the game. Normally when you first enter the game you will enter Genesis plaza( the default spawn point for players), but you can easily drop yourself right into the exclusive yacht party by clicking this link. 

You can also jump into the Sandbox and check out that experience although it was lackluster to say the least. 

Is the Metaverse A Game?

No not exactly, while there are games you can play in the metaverse it’s really the evolution of social media. The metaverse is there to connect people with other people and build an experience that’s not censored. 

What’s The Future Of The Metaverse? 

The truth is that no one is certain on exactly what metaverse will become but it seems that it’s  already caught the attention of big brands, who feel it’s a very useful way to connect with their customers that they could not have been able to do before.
