This is the Defiant’s foundational guide to the Metaverse. It would take way way too long to go into all the different expressions of the Metaverse but this is our view of how the core of this exciting new space is not about immersive universes with hypercolour graphics but something far simpler and more profound.
With thanks to Piers Kicks, Matthew Ball and Eric Elliot whose work was such a huge help in putting this together.
During the presentation ironically videos hosted on Google Drive refused to stream so I’ve included the presentation for you to view at your own leisure.
