A revolution is unfolding,where the NFTs, metaverse and decentraland are taking over the digital world at the moment.
NTF the non-fungible token is a digital asset that represents real-world components such as art, music, in-game objects, and videos. They're frequently encoded with the same software as many other cryptos, and they're bought and exchanged online, often with bitcoin. NFT’s can be anything that is digital, you can make as many copies of a digital file as you like, including the art that comes with an NFT. However NFTs are designed to provide you with something you won't find anywhere else: encrypted ownership of the work. In terms of tangible art collection, anyone can buy a Monet print, for example. The original, on the other hand, can only be possessed by one individual.
A metaverse is a virtual world in which humans interact socially and economically through avatars. In other words, people can join a virtual world where a set of rules for participation are defined in a real-world metaphor. When it comes to NFTs and the metaverse, we need to take it a step ahead. This may be perplexing to those unfamiliar with this small world, but the following explains what's occurring:
This entails the actual transfer of resources between the real and virtual realities. The decentralised Internet, which is the key to connecting NFTs with the metaverse and allowing us to enter a new world. Metaverses have existed in the form of multiplayer internet games for decades. However, we might soon enter an era of unique experiences that are almost indistinguishable from reality, spawning new kinds of interaction for both gamers and non-gamers.
In 2021, people in the virtual world were already living in an alternate version of themselves. They could buy digital clothes for their avatar and acquire digital art in the form of non-fungible tokens, using cryptocurrencies as a legitimate form of money (NFTs). Decentraland, a virtual real estate platform, was thus a matter of time. What started off as a pixelated 2D grid whereby users could buy pixels has evolved into a 3D experience. Decentraland is a decentralised virtual world software built on the Ethereum blockchain that allows users to buy and sell virtual land parcels. People can make their own micro-worlds, complete with virtual trees, planes, and other features.
In other words, Decentraland is similar to virtual reality video games, but it is more immersive and 'real' because it owns assets. Everything that is available in the actual world can be found in Decentraland, from digital skyscrapers and rapid transportation systems to movie theatres and hotels. Pretty Crazy Right!!!
The technology that supports NFTs will be a major disruptor in terms of customer experience, new business models with the web 3.0 and a wide range of sectors will be able to use it for shared gain and contribute to the shared economy,on a global perspective. The spectrum of organisations in this industry is not only growing, but also merging, as seen by partnerships between internet startups and established corporations with vast amounts of IP. As the internet matures and digital worlds expand, the Meta industry will become increasingly vital.
