Metaverse Coins

In its simplest form, the metaverse is an online network of interconnected 3D virtual worlds. In the metaverse, you can hang out with friends, play games, work together, and even buy and sell things. It’s a big change in how we might experience everything digital, and a core component of Web 3.

Cryptocurrencies are the backbone of the metaverse economy. They give you true ownership of your digital assets, so you can take them with you across different virtual spaces – something you still can’t do in most online games or platforms today.

Leading tech companies like Microsoft, Sony, Google, and Meta are all pouring money into building the metaverse. Some of these spaces will be run by the companies that make them, and some will be decentralized, controlled by the users themselves. The table below explores which cryptocurrencies power the different corners of the metaverse.
