Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the growing popularity of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the metaverse. Besides renowned global artists, the fashion and entertainment industry has also embraced the platforms, big time.
Metaverse is an alternative virtual reality for social connections. Using augmented reality and virtual reality, users can immerse themselves in the alternate world of the metaverse to interact, play games, or experience things through their digital avatar.
