The Linux Foundation has announced plans to build an open-source metaverse which it says could be “as impactful as the World Wide Web”, so long as companies, developers, and founders come together to meet shared goals.

The aptly named Open Metaverse Foundation(opens in new tab) (OMF) has been divided into a series of groups, that it calls Foundational Interest Groups, designed to focus on different topics. They include transactions, virtual worlds and simulations, networking, security and privacy, and legal and policy, among others. 

A large number of organizations and open-source communities have come together to form the foundation, including ChainHub Foundation, OpenSDV, and Veriken, each bringing its own wealth of knowledge.
