Metaverse Related Platforms by Development Stage

Non-Fungible TC HQ at Decentraland: -88, -47 (Designed ByFireworks Design Studio)

“A metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection. In futurism and science fiction, it is often described as a hypothetical iteration of the Internet as a single, universal virtual world that is facilitated by the use of virtual and augmented reality headsets.” – Wikipedia

Please note that this is an non-exhaustive list of Metaverse related platforms and is for reference only (it is not perfect and does not aspire to be). Its purpose is to let people know more about the different Metaverse projects and to provide a go-to place for people who are new to the Metaverse and would like to explore the different platforms.

The projects are grouped based on their development phase and there is a chance that this directory is not fully updated with their latest developments, we try to list those with public access, so that that Metaverse platforms could be experienced by new users within this space.

Checklist for a Metaverse Platform:

  • Does it enable a multiplayer social experience?
  • Does it allow ownership or digital asset (could be NFT or in-game asset), if it is NFT, then likely a Web 3.0 Metaverse, if not, it is likely a Web 2.0 Metaverse.
  • Is it an open-world with different experience or just a game with a scripted path? (GTA V Online vs GTA Single-player)
  • Does it allow ownership of parcel or virtual space? Does it allow people to build an experience on it?
  • Is it powered by the blockchain or database? Database of ownership on blockchain vs company’s private server? Web 3.0 vs Web 2.0
  • Is it interoperable with other Metaverse worlds?
  • Does it have different locations by different entities?
  • Does 2D, 3D, VR, AR and XR matter? Or is it another layer of social activity on the web?
  • Does it have any tools for the user to build and experience the virtual world?
  • Website (flat informative surface) vs Metaverse (interactive experiential space)
  • Is there a digital economy? Can people trade within the platform? Is there connection with the physical realm?
  • Do you have a customized digital avatar that represents you versus a game story line character?

Please kindly reach out to us if we have missed any platform, or if you have any feedback, or if you are a new platform and would like to be included in this list of Metaverse platforms. Last Updated: June 22, 2022
