Into the Metaverse- A Decentralized Storage Approach
The world is slowly catching up to the Web 3.0 wave with Metaverse rage. The way we will work, socialize, collaborate or shop may change dramatically in the coming future. This world is vast, complex and richly detailed which would need a re-thinking the way we store data, especially user generated content like NFTs and Avatars.  Decentralized technology is the bedrock for Metaverse and so in the discussion we aim to touch upon elements of decentralized storage and its implications on the storage industry. Also, we plan to gauge the preparedness maturity of the industry for the incoming metaverse wave.
