What is Metaverse?
Metaverse is the integrated network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection. The metaverse is the next gigantic opportunity for investors, entrepreneurs, creators, and businesses to tap into the biggest revolution of digital technology that we have ever seen. The term “metaverse” originated in the 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash.

Three years into the Covid pandemic, authors needed to find new ways to connect with readers and metaverse could be the next practice. On this occasion, Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar emphasized the importance of the next practices over the best practices.
