Dual Cityzen: Providing infrastructure to build thriving Metaverses

There’s been a lot of buzz about the metaverse, but not really very little understanding of it. The topic is quite literally out-of-this-world and hard for most people to wrap their heads around. Most explanations of the metaverse are over-complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. One of the biggest questions being asked around this is how can I become a citizen of the metaverse? 

In October, Mark Zuckerberg changed Facebook’s name to Meta, indicative of a new direction for the future,  not only the company but our world. The concept solicited both praise and condemnation globally from people who were excited about the possibilities that the metaverse would open up and from people who worried about the potential negative impacts it could have on the world and on how people interact with one another. 

As one looks at the concept of the metaverse, there have been a number of different options one sees, from a simple 2D interactive platform to a fully illustrated world where people would need to use a virtual reality (VR) headset and be “transported” into their own virtual world.

The metaverse — as a concept — is not contingent on VR headsets. The simple Oxford Definition of a metaverse is “a virtual-reality space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users”. In the most simplest form, a metaverse is a virtual-reality space, (but this space can be accessed in 2D and accessed through a screen). In fact, there are metaverses today, easily accessible through the internet with your laptop. 

In the metaverse, users can have their own homes, personal belongings, but also with belongings and a view they never imagined possible to own. People could travel — virtually — to other parts of the world, and meet and have discussions with friends that are thousands of miles away. They could feel as though they are working in their office, with 3D avatars of their colleagues around them, from the comfort of their own homes. People could create their own “worlds”, designing places, spaces, and other things like games, where they could then virtually experience. 

One way in which metaverses already exist today and is accessible is through games. Games that have created alternative universes — or enable users to create their own alternative universe — are metaverse games. One such game is “The Sandbox’, where players can create their own universe by exploring, gathering and combining resources, such as dirt and water to create mud or mechanical items to create more complex items. One of the most interesting things about recent metaverse games is their ability to have a real-life impact in our daily lives. In “The Sandbox”, for instance, players can gather $SAND cryptocurrency when they buy and sell land in the game, but they could sell this cryptocurrency and convert it to their national currencies (FIAT), thereby increasing their purchasing power in society. 

The concept of the metaverse has become increasingly interesting, not least because companies are finding ways to make metaverses more interactive, but also because they could have a serious impact on a range of other industries beyond the gaming industry. The metaverse has serious potential to alter the future of other industries like the sports, arts, music, and even the real estate industry. Soon enough, we may not need to travel to physical venues to attend concerts or be part of sports programs. With the metaverse, we can feel that we are there, in a totally immersive experience. As for the real estate industry, there are already companies out there dedicated to virtual real estate. If people are to create homes and spaces within the metaverse and are to interact extensively in these spaces, there is no reason to believe that they would not pay to purchase land or a ready-made space. 

The metaverse is here and the metaverse is now. Sooner or later, most of the world will become more familiar with the concept, as it is the inevitable but exciting direction that our world is heading in.
