102 - The Emerging Metaverse | Sam Englebardt & Richard Kim
These two guests are getting their hands dirty as the gaming, cultural, and technological worlds converge into the Metaverse. Trying to predict, invest, and help build this emerging phenomenon is a massive endeavor, but it’s one that we need to get right.
Exploring what the Metaverse actually is, how today’s internet compares to the digital worlds of the future, and optimizing the user experience comprise the core of this discussion—but we open it to understanding the skeptics in the space, as well game economies and tokenomics. Sam and Richard expect to see a mass exodus into the Metaverse over the next couple decades… how are you going to play the Metaverse game?
