    Tomas Bendz (Around the Corner) – Metaverse as an industry is forecast to generate approx. $1.5 trillion in 2029 from today’s $100 billion with an annual growth rate of over 40%. But, for most people today, the Metaverse is an unknown concept and few people can explain what it is, let alone put it into practice. In this lecture, we take it from the beginning, we sort out all the concepts, put it in context, go through what it is that makes Metaverse relevant right now and above all, show different use-cases and applications.
