The metaverse is a virtual space that is built with the idea to immerse users within the online experience, mainly via virtual and augmented reality, while enabling them to interact with each other virtually. Due to its ongoing evolution, the term ‘metaverse’ currently has no single definition. There are many types of metaverses, and one can engage in any of them, depending on their preferences – metaverse being the broad term for a virtual experience or virtual environment one typically enters as an avatar.
