Castles in the Sky

Season #1 Episode #1

Why are investors spending millions to buy land in a virtual world?  What opportunities does the metaverse hold for creators and artists? How do communities engage with each other within the metaverse?

There’s been increasing buzz about the metaverse in the last two years. From Facebook’s rebranding to Meta to Dolce & Gabbana’s first NFT sale, which included a $1.3M crown, news of the metaverse is everywhere. At the same time, with these lofty conversations and acronyms thrown around, it’s still an intimidating topic for the everyday person.

We’re excited to welcome Claire Seidler, COO and co-founder of Stageverse, to help demystify the making of a metaverse. Stageverse helps creators, communities, and brands build beautiful 3D spaces in their social metaverse platform.

In this episode, Claire and I talk about how Stageverse got started, why there’s no one way to define the metaverse, how Stageverse takes social media to the next level, creating safety and security in the metaverse, doing social good in the metaverse, why land is so valuable in a virtual landscape, what sets apart the worlds that are winners and losers, the relationship between the creator economy and claiming space in the metaverse, Stageverse’s upcoming land sale, and more.
