The decentralized Metaverse, operates with the power of Web 3.0, the principles of the blockchain and is built around Community. It includes AR, VR, MR and XR as ways to experience it - that which is, a reality that is different from the one we have been given. Our metaverse includes Web 3 and the decentralized blockchain as the foundation for change in transacting leading to self sovereignty, individuals right to transact for themselves and recoup the rewards for their data and contribution.

Before October 2021, people understood the Metaverse to come from the Greek word “meta” meaning “beyond”, and “verse”, ie universe in English. Thus, the metaverse would mean “Beyond our universe”, a universe transcending our reality, a digital universe.

In fall of 2021, Facebook proclaimed itself as "a Metaverse Company" changing its name to "Meta" with a logo of an infinity symbol essentially telling the world that it would forever be our Metaverse. This caused many to revolt against this form of digital appropriation.

Black 'Verse was born out of this revolution. We removed Meta to reclaim our stake on data, on individuality and our right to own our piece of the pie as well as to be a part of the team designing the future. We jump into the 'Verse, whether that be a "Meta" owned verse, preferably a decentralized Metaverse, the multiverse, a world, a space, or an infiniverse - our people are there.
