Real time multiplayer metaverse relies on both TCP and UDP internet protocols to deliver fast and reliable data traffic. Let's break it down a bit to understand the core concept:

This is an animated video that teaches you about the Transmission Control Protocol vs User Datagram Protocol. TCP, or transmission control protocol, is a transport layer protocol. UDP, or user datagram protocol, provides a connectionless transport service - this video will delve into the specifics.

It is common for programmers to use two types of internet protocol when designing a network. User datagram protocol or UDP is a connectionless protocol, meaning that it does not guarantee delivery of the data. Transmission control protocol or TCP is a connectionless protocol that guarantees delivery of the data.
