Q reflects on another dynamic week in the wonderful world of cryptocurrency
In the life of a crypto trader, dull moments are often rare in recent times. This week proves to be no exception.
Interestingly, pack leaders rise victorious from the bowels of the ‘meme’ coin ecosystem - e.g. Shiba Inu ($SHIB), Floki Inu ($FLOKI)
Fanning tinders into flames, Facebook announces a change in their name to ‘Meta’ that better reflects their enhanced vision of creating a digital universe or ‘Metaverse’ in which humans can interact within the confines of a shared virtual space.
Some readers may now wonder - what exactly is a Metaverse?
Q finds it helpful to think of the Metaverse as a common 3D digital space accessible via VR headsets such as the Oculus.
Visualise a virtual location where one can interact with others and engage in friendly conversation with other users in the Metaverse.
Perhaps, one may even attend work meetings - or play a game of meta-golf with other merry meta-folk.
Why is the Metaverse so important?
Qluster analysts suggest that the recent move from Facebook reflects a paradigm shift in technology that was initially limited to entertainment applications such as gaming or watching 3D movies.
