NFTs and Metaverse Give Users an Internet Identity

For most people who use social media, their profile pic is a common image like a selfie or a photo of them with their friends or a pet. This has been a big criticism in todays’ social media landscape. The way people express themselves in today’s social media has become limited compared to past social media platforms.

Think about it, before Facebook, there was Myspace. Myspace gave the user more tools to express themselves, users used to be able to customize their own space by adding music that they liked, artwork, etc. Somewhere down the line over the years the freedom to express yourself more freely on social media has been lost. NFTs and the upcoming Metaverse is going to help change back how a user is able to build their identity on the Internet.

If you take a look at Twitter or Discord, it has already begun. Social media selfies like CryptoPunks, Bored Ape YachtClub, andCool Cats NFT collections have been selling for tens of thousands and even millions by users who want to be able to uniquely stick out and claim their identity to express themselves the way they always wanted while also giving the user a sense of anonymity to help separate their Online identity from the real world or to face persecution for wanting to be themselves. This has been going on already for several years now and a popular representation of this happening today, especially with the youth, is the free game called VRChat.

VRChat.

VRChat is a virtual reality game where players can choose their own identities to socialize with others in VR, such as choosing to be an alien, an anime character, a monster, or any other avatar they feel that represents their personalities the best. The digital manifestation of oneself in VR is virtually limitless compared to the real world, its customization isn’t constrained. Now take VR Chats approach to identities in the virtual world and apply it to the upcoming Metaverse, this is one of the reasons why these NFTs have been selling like hot cakes, because once the Metaverse releases, these NFTs could become these users’ new unique identities into the new world.
