    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst The Metaverse is a concept which will be more known and global with the time. It's the universe of the digital realm, where any connected human can, in simple words, make a life. Anyone can buy, sell, own, make money, create, live, interact and do anything possible in the digital era. Think also when augmented reality is around and we will be living in a constant mix between real and digital world if we so wish. Amazing.
