South Korea Investing Billions into the ‘Metaverse’
Star Life is an awesome online game that everyone can play for free! It encourages you to make friends with different people from all around the world, in a special virtual world.
The new game includes blockchain features like cool special items (NFTs) that you can transfer to other games or virtual worlds. This lets players have more control over the optional parts of the game and even make some money, although the game hasn’t announced what type of digital currency it will use yet.
Experts predict that the metaverse will experience less activity in 2023, but some countries like South Korea have chosen to invest money into it. South Korea has dedicated 51 million dollars to local metaverse projects. Although there are other companies, like Meta, who have decided to put more of their funds into the artificial intelligence sector instead of the metaverse.
