The Metaverse: Was it just hype after all?
Dear Avatars,
Dear Avatars,

In addition, one must not forget how high the intersection of the Metaverse and crypto was - and still is. And whether the Metaverse really has to or even should be on the blockchain is ultimately unresolved:

The Virtual Worlds Education Consortium brings educators together both to share what has been successful and to tackle obstacles across virtual platforms and communities:
