A virtual Škoda world in 3D
The Škoda Metaverse experience is a virtual 3D world based on the Nemesis platform.

Tips and tricks for the Metaverse by Diego Borgo
Diego Borgo, a well-known Metaverse and NFT advisor guiding Fortune 500 brands in this new development of the web explains: “Thanks to blockchain technology, we can now prove ownership of assets, something that was previously almost impossible. Imagine being able to own, create, and monetize your digital assets just as you would with assets in the physical world. But the story doesn’t end there. As we continue to evolve the web, we are now entering the era of the Metaverse. This is a place where people can become immersed in 3D virtual worlds, using avatars to represent themselves. It signifies another step forward in how humans connect digitally. The possibilities are limitless, and we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface.” Borgo reveals more tips and tricks in the latest release of the Simply Clever podcast.
