The Metaverse is a series of virtual worlds that are interconnected and accessible through the internet. The term was originally coined by Neal Stephenson in his 1992 novel Snow Crash, where it is used as a metaphor for the internet.

In the Metaverse, you can create any type of avatar you want and interact with others in this virtual world. There are many different types of avatars that you can choose from - animals, aliens, humanoids etc. And just like in real life, there are different types of people to meet and talk to in the Metaverse too!

Once you've created your character, you'll be given the opportunity to customize them with a variety of clothes and accessories, as well as choose a username.

How many people will be in the Metaverse?

There are many unanswered questions about the future of the Metaverse. What will the population be? Will people have to have a special kind of body in order to enter? What will happen if someone dies in the Metaverse? In order to enter the Metaverse, at least one person will have to have a special kind of body. The shape of this body will not be defined yet, but it might take the form of an exoskeleton or something similar. Pixels and sensors, powered by a quantum computer that's housed in the device itself (similarly to how computers are housed in desktop systems), will allow one to enter the Metaverse. What will happen if someone dies in the Metaverse? If someone passes away in a Virtual Reality environment then their digital copy will also disappear from that reality and they will only exist in the physical world.

What will the population be in the metaverse?

While the metaverse world is still being created, the population will be determined by all the people who come and make their own worlds. The population may always be changing as new people come in. A world’s population will be determined by the number of people who come into it and by their activity in the world. For example, if a person creates an avatar and logs into their world for one hour, then the population of that world would be one. If a player spends six hours online in that same space, then the population would be six.
