Some Web3 platforms are creating a more multicultural and diverse metaverse. 

May 10 2022

Some Web3 platforms are creating a more multicultural and diverse metaverse. YPulse’s Metaverse trend report found that 68% of BIPOC young consumers think the metaverse is the next big thing, while 66% of young people who identify as LGBTQ+ feel the same way. Recently, some platforms have been trying to make the metaverse more accessible to these demographics. Browser-based 3D meetup platform Nowhere allows users to virtually hangout with others, via video that appears in framed digital nonagons and they can move around the digital space. While the platform has some NFT integrations, it doesn’t require users to have a crypto wallet or NFT in order to join. According to its founders, Nowhere was intentionally developed to be “low tech” so people in countries with fewer high-powered computers can participate—and is “a nod to the need for multiculturalism in the coming metaverse, where there is a risk that high-priced NFTs and expensive computing gadgetry could limit participation.” Meanwhile, our trend research found that two in five BIPOC and LGBTQ+ young consumers have purchased an NFT—and other platforms are trying to make NFTs more inclusive and accessible. For example, DeadFellaz is an NFT project on OpenSea with art that is more “culturally sensitive.” (AdAge)
