What exactly is the metaverse and how will we be using it in the future? In this episode, Daniel sits down with Athar Ahmed and Cameron Mordi-Semple, leaders at metaverse startup Legion Network. They go deep into not just the technology behind this burgeoning industry, but also the moral and ethical implications of living in a completely digitized society.
