AIXR invites you to their event

Metaverse vs Web3: A Convergence?

About this event

Within the realms of future tech, two terms that have been bandied around quite a lot recently are the 'Metaverse' and Web3. In some quarters, the terms have started to become confused, not helped by the influence of blockchain. However, it is important to realise both are entirely different concepts.

Despite their differences, however, the Metaverse and Web3 have the potential to complement each other.

In this Insights Live Webinar, our panel will investigate what the Metaverse and Web3 will mean for all of us, and look to clarify some of the confusion surrounding the terms.

Our panel of industry experts will cover topics such as:

  1. What is the difference between the Metaverse and Web3?
  2. What potential do they have to interlink?
  3. Is this something that will benefit or hinder progress?
