A metaverse is an online virtual world that people can explore, interact with, and create. Unlike traditional video games or social media platforms, a metaverse is designed to be more immersive and realistic, blurring the line between the digital and physical worlds.
A metaverse allows users to create avatars, or digital representations of themselves. These avatars can then explore the metaverse, interacting with other users and digital content. The metaverse is also home to a wide range of user-generated content, including 3D environments, digital artworks, and virtual reality experiences.
In order to participate in the Metaverse, you need to have decentralized identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials. People can participate with assurance knowing their identity is secure.
- Used to identify individuals, businesses, and objects in the Metaverse when interacting with other users and applications
- Individuals can own and control their own data
- Create avatar identities that are independent of any particular platform or service, giving users more control over their virtual identities and allowing them to easily move between different metaverse platforms
- Access services and applications without the need for a third party
- Used to encrypt data ensuring that only the intended recipient can access it
- People can remain anonymous in the Metaverse or share as much or as little information about themselves as they prefer
- Used to create digital signatures that can be used to verify the authenticity of transactions in the Metaverse
- Verifiable Credentials are digital documents that are used to prove your identity, membership, or skills in the Metaverse
- Can be issued by organizations, employers, or educational institutions
- Without them, it would be very easy for someone to create a fake identity and take advantage of other people
