In the last months, especially after Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement of Meta, everyone in the tech industry was all about “metaverse”, “NFTs”, “Web 3.0”.
Even though these concepts are, for most of them, not that new (we already know the tokenization and notarization since the emergence of Ethereum, the AR/VR since Pokemon Go, the distributed networks since the creation of blockchain…), it seems everyone discovered these concepts recently, thanks to buzzing events such as a tweet sale, artworks auctions or even JP Morgan publishing a white paper about the opportunities for banks to go metaverse.
It’s true that the most iconic examples of blockchain applications are mostly in finance (think cryptocurrencies and DeFi) and on the consumer-side of things. However, there’s a lot to say about blockchain technology applied in mobility.
