METRO Webinar: Decentralized Apps, the Metaverse, and the “Next Big Thing”

May 26, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Why did Facebook rename itself for the Metaverse? What is the metaverse & how are people experiencing it? How are artists, nonprofits, even the NBA are racking up seven-figure payouts for otherwise mundane pieces of media called NFTs (non-fungible tokens)? Why are they so despised? In this session, we look at the crazy breakthrough apps and items populating decentralized web. Plus demonstrations of how people are working, trading & creating in the metaverse.

This event is part of a series of workshops presented by Metropolitan New York Library https://metro.org/decentralizedweb
