What is metaverse? 

Metaverse is a virtual reality construct where users live within a digital universe. It includes different technology elements like virtual reality, augmented reality and video, which gives users a real-time digital experience. Its applications could vary from online gaming to digital avatars, and users can buy digital land and other assets using cryptocurrency. Although Mark Zuckerberg has already changed Facebook to Meta, estimates suggest that it will take years before the metaverse becomes mainstream. With the expansion of metaverse in future, users will be provided with a hyper-real alternative world.
