Metal Meets Metal

The empty warehouse was a skeleton. Normally busy manufacturing lines turned into long, unmoving snakes of rubber. The air conditioning howled, but without the chatter of moving machines, it howled…

I Bought MANA and Will Probably Hodl Because of The Metaverse

Warning: I bought MANA because of Tik Tok. So I’m probably not the best person to listen to when it comes to financial advice.

I first heard about Decentraland and MANA on Tik Tok a couple of months ago. Or maybe it has been a year? I can’t remember because 2020 never happened.

Anyway, I loved it — the idea of a metaverse.

It refers to the digital, interconnected world of the future. I’m sure you all know about it from Ready Player One and other cyberpunk fantasies.

Decentraland is a virtual reality platform that runs on the Ethereum blockchain. In the metaverse, you can purchase land and build whatever you want. It’s kind of like The Sims in VR where you buy tiles and place objects to make a nice house or a cool amusement park.

It also has a token called MANA which can be used to purchase land, goods and services in Decentraland.

So why did I finally get into it?

Facebook is huge. For it to be moving into the metaverse is game-changing. It completely legitimizes the whole space. The last time I really got excited about VR was when Mark Zuckerburg announced Oculus would be acquired by Facebook in 2014… before immersing himself in VR like The Matrix.

It didn’t come to a surprise for me though.

So Facebook’s metaverse move is rightly timed.

It was the catalyst that brought metaverse out to the public.
