The Brooklyn Nets Join The Metaverse — Becoming The First Professional Sports Team To Do So


The Brooklyn Nets have made history by becoming one of the first sports teams to join the Metaverse. However, many people don’t know what the Metaverse is or its impact on the way we do business online.

Fortunately, WIRED has a great explanation.

As AfroTech previously reported, the term “metaverse” itself is pretty similar to the term “cyberspace” in terms of what it entails. In other words, the “metaverse” isn’t a particular place but a description of how we interact with the cyber world around us.

“The technologies that make up the metaverse can include virtual reality—characterized by persistent virtual worlds that continue to exist even when you’re not playing—as well as augmented reality that combines aspects of the digital and physical worlds,” reports WIRED.

And the thing is, you don’t have to log in to “Meta” by Facebook to interact with the metaverse. Meta is just one of several channels to access the broader metaverse (So, no, Mark Zuckerberg does not “own the metaverse”).

In other words, to sum it all up — basically, the Brooklyn Nets (and other investors) are investing in getting a piece of the Internet.
