A metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection. In futurism and science fiction, it is often described as a hypothetical iteration of the Internet as a single, universal virtual world that is facilitated by the use of virtual and augmented reality headsets. ~ Wikipedia
Metaverse is a world where users live in an enriched interactive world, making it more like the real world. It basically brings together all the real-world activities like playing games, going to a concert, celebrating parties, even owning a piece of land in a virtual space.
