CryptoMondaysVR #2 Shows Solid Progress, Come To #3

We held our second CryptoMondaysVR Meetup, which included a doubling of the attendees, to 42, icnluding a number from outside the U.S.. International attendee, Jason Chew, w/ Bitcoin Malaysia, was so impressed he wrote this:

Could this be our new future? I think so. Here is why.” :

Unlike Zoom, it requires a bit of setting up. I can say though, the user experience had been easy and intuitive.

First step is to register your account on AltspaceVR. Then install the app onto your desktop or PC (I haven’t tried the mobile version yet if there is one).

It’ll bring you inside the virtual world. The instructions are helpful, simple and easy to follow.

Boom Everybody is here.

It looks like I arrived late to the party. The presenter was just about wrapping up. Everybody was saying goodbyes and it looked as though I wasn’t only one.

Said hi, and made a few more friends.

## My Takeaways

It was quite an awesome experience.

I know virtual spaces are not new. I’ve played my share of massive multiplayer online (MMO) games. However, this feels different. And the reason why is because…

**It felt like Zoom but in VR** where you can navigate and mingle. And because the world is locked up right now by force, they are there to mingle too.

It’s still the early days. But I think its still really cool.

The timing is right and this just may be our new future moving forward.

I just completed a facelift for BitcoinMalaysia and I’m very happy with the positive feedback its receiving. It’s just the beginning of what I believe most people will be introduced as Web3.
