    Is Zuckerberg's Metaverse a Failure?

    Is Zuckerberg's Metaverse a Failure?

    Virtual reality is getting integrated into people’s lives sooner than anyone can predict. With Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta being at the forefront of this new digital revolution, this technology is going to change the way people live, connect, communicate, and do business the same way that social media has changed the world. 
    Despite the backlash that Zuckerberg receives from critics, he and his company are taking great leaps in improving the quality of Horizon Worlds, Meta’s metaverse platform. In his recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, he unveiled plans about the progress they made to make Horizon Worlds conveniently accessible for users. 
    But like social media platforms, there will be a variety of metaverse spaces to choose from. How one stands out depends on the user experience and the impact it will have on anyone.

    The Ethereum Merge Happened - This is what you need to know

    The Ethereum Merge Happened - This is what you need to know

    The Ethereum Merge paved the way for skeptics about cryptocurrency to see this new digital investment in a new light. Ethereum has gone the extra mile in making transactions easy and environmental-friendly. With the proof of stake replacing proof of work, the blockchain has the potential to help reduce the world’s energy consumption to about 0.2%. 
    The proof of stake system works as if you are putting money in a bank and leaving it untouched until you get a profitable return. Not only will this provide an easy way to reap your returns of investment, it will also not cost you much effort, time, and money.
    This innovative approach proves the reason why Ethereum stands as one of the most popular blockchains for cryptocurrency and opens doors for other blockchains to follow suit.

    Ezrawithacamera.eth - NFTs are Digital and Physical

    Ezrawithacamera.eth - NFTs are Digital and Physical

    The potential benefits of NFTs are endless. For Ezra (@ezrawithacamera on Instagram), these tokens are more than just digital assets. They are tickets to exclusive events, content and opportunities!

    As the moderator for One37pm’s Twitter page, Ezra enjoys a fulfilling career in one of Garyvee’s companies. He earned the job from his own initiative - creating a spreadsheet that lists all the possible answers and data about NFTs. By posting the spreadsheet on Twitter and tagging Garyvee, Ezra stood out among the rest of the applicants.

    Ezra’s knowledge and passion for NFTs are as boundless as the possibilities of these tokens. Collecting physical cards aside from their digital counterparts, Ezra believes that the physical world will not lose its value as technology gradually integrates virtual reality into our lifestyle. He shares more of his insights in this episode.

Best info to understand and learn

This is a completely new world to me and although I’ve been highly interested in it I’ve avoided diving in because everything else I’ve come across to learn this stuff seemed “out of my league”, so that’s why I absolutely love this podcast. It’s highly informative with lessons and information made simple and easy to understand as well as it being fun and entertaining. Highly recommend.
