The Metaverse has to work 24/7, 365 days a year, so no resets, outages and pauses.


Congratulations on winning 1500 SAND Tokens.

The story that won third place the round 3 is:

The Metaverse will serve the same purpose and become the backbone of the society we will see in the upcoming years. The digitization process is only accelerating, leading to the further evolution of and within societies. The vision of new markets, new economies, and new clients is too promising to be missed. Not only for us, mere market participants, but also for world-renowned brands that have much more at stake.


Yay,@moderneremite! You have won third place and 1200 SAND Tokens!

In fourth place, we have

At the end of the day, whether it’s dating or selling shoes, no one is going to sit and wait for technology to catch up with your William Gibson dreams, so if you want people to log in to the Metaverse right now, in an attempt to address the non-gaming realms of human need, you’ll probably want to work on small improvements to the Web 2.0 status quo rather than attempt to build the world that we ultimately all want but won’t have the technical chops to deliver for another decade or so.


Excellent story@rhortx; you have won 800 SAND Tokens.

The fifth position is won by:

History doesn't repeat itself but it rhymes.


You’ve won 500 SAND Tokens, @prcwrites!
