The metaverse is having a moment. In the first half of 2022, the word metaverse appeared more than 1,100 times in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s regulatory filings. A record high when compared to the 260 mentions in 2021, and the less than one-dozen mentions in the past two earlier decades.

This is a significant change because it provokes the work of the basic […]

For those skeptical about the project based on its name alone, this isn’t an attempt to latch onto the branding that’s defined the […]
