The metaverse: beyond the hype

The metaverse has certainly been one of the - if not THE - most media covered topics over the last years. Despite all that, there is still no generally accepted rigid definition and without a doubt, a certain amount of hype continues to surround the topic . Building on the convergence of numerous technologies, often confused with the web3 or simple video games, the metaverse might represent the biggest market opportunity of the next 20 years.

Understanding its core principles, components and how it is already being applied on the market will be critical for any business decision maker so as not to be left behind.

This module is part of our Digital assets and metaverse curriculum.
