Over the past few years, the phrase "metaverse" has been used extensively.
One could argue that nothing remotely like a single metaverse exists.
The phrase was first used in 1992's Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson to refer to a sizable virtual universe that readers may explore.
The majority of businesses interested in creating a metaverse, in particular Meta, formerly Facebook, have similar experiences in mind.
They anticipate that ultimately, people will utilize the metaverse instead of the internet to purchase, socialize, work, and play.
A cohesive virtual universe that combines corporate and user-created material is how the metaverse is typically described.
So in theory, you could ride the monorail to Fortnite Island, get in your free Chevrolet Impala that you won in a contest, and drive there to attend a concert.
