The Metaverse
We’ve written quite a bit in this newsletter about the metaverse itself (and especially Facebook’s clear play to dominate the space). But what about all the stuff that will go in the metaverse? There are companies hard at work building that stuff too, including things we don’t yet have in real life (Jetpacks. Hoverboards.) Read on to learn more about some of the players in this space.
‘We want to be the brand of the metaverse,’ says RTKFT’s Chris Le.

The Deeper Look
You’ve likely heard the term “play-to-earn” - a gaming concept popularized by the NFT game, Axie Infinity. This week, Sky Mavis, the developer behind Axie was given a $3 billion valuation. So does this mean we should expect more play-to-earn games in the future? And what’s happening in the space, generally? Learn up with some of the resources below. And, as always, tweet at us @blockblockio with comments, questions, or good resources we missed!
