Big tech luminaries are preaching the coming of the next internet. Tomorrow’s cyberspace will be empyreal, transcendent, immersive, 3D, and all folded together – the disparate sites and services we live and breathe gathered under one interconnected network. It will be a super platform that convenes sub-platforms: social media, online video games and ease-of-life apps, all accessible through the same digital space and sharing the same digital economy. 

The metaverse is the next evolution of social connection, defined by real-time persistency, economies, communities, digital avatars and accessibility across multiple devices. Below we’ll unpack what the metaverse is, how it’s evolving and the key technology building blocks that are forming the foundation of the future today.
