Metaverse is coming, and it is a big deal
The Metaverse is a term used to describe other digital universes where people work, play, and socialize. You may call it the Metaverse, the Mirror society, the AR Cloud, the Magicverse, or the Spatial Internet; but one thing is certain: it’s on its way and it’s massive.
Blockchain metaverses are on the verge of becoming the world’s most ambitious version of the internet. Various industries are looking at possibilities and new ways to expand in this thriving market, and OneRare is developing its own distinct design as a different approach to the virtual world.
OneRare is developing a Food-inspired metaverse for the global food and beverage industry, developing the first tokenization layer that celebrates food in Web3 by creating an immersive and gamified experience for users worldwide.
Blockchain is now being employed in the digital realm to tackle real-world issues. The food sector has not been immune to this invasion, and blockchain technology is at the center of many initiatives to improve how food is purchased, sold, traded, or consumed. Building a metaverse for Food is the beginning of this future.
