In the next few years, there will not be a precise time when the metaverse will be officially inaugurated and we will be able to step inside it to find out what it is all about. On the contrary, the Silicon Valley giants – and others – are already developing their embryonic virtual worlds, aiming at making them increasingly open and rich in experiences. Therefore, not a metaverse but many metaverses that allow us to understand what the future of our digital age could be. The real challenge of the next few years will be, above all, to combine these digital environments into a single immense virtual ecosystem, decentralised (like the internet) and within which we will be able to move seamlessly from one environment to another, thus making the most of its potential.
