Petaverse’s ambition is to create the first pet (an ownable, digital companion packaged as an NFT) with the potential to exist in perpetuity. One of the most common questions that Petaverse’s creator, Tiny Rebel, is often asked is: why digital pets? There are a number of reasons. First and foremost, pets are a foundational human experience, present by our side in every stage of our evolution as a species. It is inconceivable that humanity would not want pets once again by our side as our evolution grows to encompass the metaverse. Additionally, there are also clear market-based reasons why pets make sense at this stage of web3.
