Your Guide To NFT’s and the Metaverse
THE COMING OF WEB 3.0 – OVERVIEW & BACKGROUND
The Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Hologram technology have been around for over a decade, except only now has it begun to reach main stream. With this technology still in its infancy, the Metaverse and NFT’s began to surface in 2020 during the Covid lockdowns as an answer to our world being physically separated from each other.
The Metaverse is a virtual world that is being created. The world is accessed by a set of eyewear or a VR headset that allows you to see the internet in 3D, except it is the internet converted into a simulated world. In this world, people will have identities and they can BE whoever or whatever they want to be. The identities will be as real as our current government issued ID’s or drivers licenses. No one else can own it. Also part of this world are NFT’s or Non-fungible tokens that can be sold and traded.
WHAT IS BEHIND NFT AND THE METAVERSE
HOW TO GET STARTED
First, to get started on your NFT/Metaverse quest, you can begin by going to the Unstoppable Domains website and purchasing your NFT domain, that you own forever by the way. These domains can be used as your universal username across all apps and websites, as your website URL, payment address for wallets and other uses yet to be discovered. There are over 2 million domains registered and growing. This means that the chances for grabbing the name you want are great, but perhaps not for long.
