Metaverse is the term given for a 3-dimensional virtual world(s) that provides users with a realistic virtual experience. It has been a hot topic because it is seen as the next frontier in the development of the internet and how we interact with each other in the digital realm. The Online multimedia platform Second Life, founded in 1999, is considered to be the first iteration of the Metaverse. It was officially launched in 2003 by San Francisco-based Linden Lab.

The Metaverse is today envisaged as a virtual reality world where people can socialize, be entertained, work, and conduct business in online 3-D spaces without geographical or other physical constraints. For instance, people can enjoy virtual parties, play games, and sports, enjoy concerts and even attend marriages!
