Something is happening in this world.
New Things are skyrocketing almost out of control, and big amounts of money are changing people. Artists and new business and companies are being crowned as pioneers of a new world.
You’d be forgiven for not knowing about it all, though. The phenomenon I’m telling you is occurring in an alternate reality.
The “metaverse” is a convergence of our physical and digital lives that is being brought on by advancements in internet connection , AR/VR, and blockchain. It’s just the culmination of all our science fiction fantasies—what ‘Tron’ and ‘Ready Player One’ imagined, but starting to happen right now.
If that sounds good to you, then perhaps you won’t be entirely surprised that people are investing big amounts in the space. That over 400 million dollars have been dropped on the metaverse’s chosen currency, the non-fungible token (or NFT). That 40 million dollars are moving every day now, and that all of the most expensive NFT transactions in history have occurred only within the last couple of days . Just last month, Christie’s auctioned off a piece of digital art by Beeple via NFT that sold for more than $100 million.
