  • "As an open platform for distributed cloud computing, Hadean can be considered the 'infrastructure' that powers the metaverse so it can become a reality," the London-based company said.

    The metaverse is a digital world created by the combination of virtual reality, augmented reality and the internet. While the technology is in its infancy, many believe it will profoundly change the worlds of gaming, social media and ecommerce. Last week, JPMorgan said in a research report that the metaverse-related economy of China alone could reach $4 trillion.
