Thank you to those of you who submitted questions for Matthew. There were lots to choose from, but here are the questions he answered:
unconventional_petal: Why is the metaverse generating so much excitement?
wise_shrimp: Hi Matthew! What positive and negative impact will the metaverse have on socialising?
trustworthy_currency: Hi Mr. Matthew, I admire you and your accomplishments. Do you expect the metaverse to spread widely, and what will its impact be on humans in the future? Also, how will it affect us as students?
diplomatic_river: Hi Matthew! The idea of metaverse is different but in today's generation people are misusing social media platforms. In that case, if the metaverse is somewhere we can access any place virtually, then how can we be safe?
