The State of Metaverse and NFTs

In our most recent (Q3,2022) Developer Nation survey we took a close look at the way developers engage with the Metaverse and NFTs. We explored different levels of engagement (from simple interest to actually working on them) and explored different patterns of interest across other technologies as well as on a regional level. Today we take a look at how developers are engaging with the Metaverse and NFTs.
