Towards the end of last year, the concept of the metaverse flared up. Facebook’s rebranding into Meta was the first major step of a leading tech firm into the metaverse, and this has been followed by similar announcements from leading brands.
This week, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) event is taking place in Las Vegas. The event will see topic discussions on blockchain, the metaverse and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
