While the term, “metaverse” conjures images of a “Ready Player One” type virtual world, understanding what it actually is today, is a bit trickier. As you’ll learn, that’s because it’s still a nascent idea that will take 5-10 years to fully materialize. In this conversation with Alex Reeve, who leads Coinbase’s strategy on Web2, Web3, and metaverse identity, we get into what the metaverse is not, and what we think it will be once fully formed: a persistent platform composed of interconnected virtual worlds where people can socialize, work, transact, play, and create.
