Here Are Just A Few Of The Many Celebrities You Can Find In The Metaverse

Celebrities are appearing in the metaverse in record numbers. From rappers to athletes, to businessmen and social media stars, celebrities are realizing that the Web3 experience is the wave of the future.

For example, when Snoop Dogg announced that he was joining the metaverse, he was very specific about how he explained it to Kevin Hart. “I built a whole metaverse called ‘The Sandbox,’” the Death Row Records capo said to the stand-up comedian. He also said he didn’t know s**t about it, but that he was “getting this money,” which is exactly the type of iconic thing you’d expect The Doggfather to say.
