Metaverse is the latest trending buzzword in the technology space. It is a virtual network where people can take virtual interactions to the next level. With metaverse becoming a thing, Indians are also taking keenly to the trend, with many metaverse startups coming out of the country. The latest development, however, is singer Daler Mehndi announcing a special performance in the metaverse to mark the celebration of the 73rd Republic Day. With this, Mehndi becomes the first Indian artist to perform in the metaverse for his audience.
The singer posted a video on his Instagram saying that he will perform at a concert in Party Nite, one of the first metaverse spaces to come out of the country. Party Nite, marketed as “India’s own metaverse," allows people to create avatars, play games, and earn NFTs. Party Nite is a “digital parallel universe, powered by blockchain where people can hang out with friends as customisable avatars, meet new people as well as joint parties and events," the metaverse’s website says. The platform also allows uusers to claim, mint, and sell digital collectables like NFTs.
