Aside from any things discussed what Metaverse is and what it is good for, one of the important elements typically missed. Such as the Internet at its time, Web 3.0 and Metaverse, by its nature is a perfect technological sandbox to experiment with new approaches in design, technological value chains and new tools. Why? Very simple, new environments create new challenges and demands for solutions, interfaces, UX decisions and ability to make experience for users fun. At Metasites, a project I’m working on, we are taking this principle as one of the core ones and trying to build the project with constant awareness of the actual value we produce for users, both in matters of entertainment and actual practical use.
