What is metaverse?
It is a virtual network where people can take virtual interactions to the next level. In other words, it is a virtual-reality space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users.
Indians are taking keenly to the trend, with many metaverse startups coming out of the country.
The singer posted a video on his Instagram saying that he will perform at a concert in Party Nite, one of the first metaverse spaces to come out of the country. Party Nite, marketed as “India’s own metaverse,” allows people to create avatars, play games, and earn NFTs. Party Nite is a “digital parallel universe, powered by blockchain where people can hang out with friends as customisable avatars, meet new people as well as joint parties and events,” according to the metaverse website. The platform also allows users to claim, mint, and sell digital collectables like NFTs.
