What is the metaverse? On a broad level, one metaverse definition might essentially describe the metaverse as an ongoing interoperable digital world filled with interactions, assets, experiences and other features that overlap with real life. The metaverse exists in various forms. One metaverse example might include a digital virtual reality world in which users own valuable items, represented as nonfungible tokens (NFT) that can be sold and transferred in the real world outside of that particular metaverse.
“The metaverse” can be used to describe all metaverse sub-categories in general. A specific metaverse, on the other hand, might be something such as a single specific metaverse NFT game, complete with metaverse real estate (digital real estate in that metaverse).
