The Metaverse Goes Mainstream

Today we’re witnessing a Cambrian explosion of metaverses driven by technological advances in software, hardware, and bandwidth and bursts of creativity in gaming, social experiences, and enterprise use cases.

This research presents the latest developments in the marketplace, the tenets of successful metaverses (e.g., openness, transparency of rewards, enforceable rules of engagement), and the role of blockchain innovation.
