Speaking about this, Dinesh said, “The first problem we faced was on Sunday because in Tamil Nadu the lockdown was imposed due to the pandemic.

Dinesh decided to create an “avatar” dedicated to Janaganandhini’s late father, the one who will preside over the ceremony, as a tribute.
He said, “To give importance to my better half, a realistic 3D virtual avatar of her father was created in NFT, so she can feel her father’s presence virtually in the metaverse and bless our marriage. Third, everyone imagines and dreams of a big celebration. This big celebration is possible through Metaverse.”
He also added: “It is true that we had a lot of trouble explaining to our parents, relatives who do not know the Internet what a metaverse was. After a few hours of explanations, we concluded with a language simple of the video game. and examples of cartoons, then they understood. The invitation was created, in NFT, etc. and it is open to the world, people can participate from any corner and any who can participate and bless us.
The concept of alternate or virtual realities has been around for quite some time. In a sense, the Metaverse allows users to integrate computing into the real world and integrate the real world into computing, bringing a real presence to any digital space.
Although it may take a few years for India to enter the Metaverse, Dinesh is very happy to give Indians the experience of a Metaverse wedding reception at an early stage. (ANI)
