Find love in Paris Hilton’s metaverse, BTC CryptoPunks soar and more

Swiping right in the metaverse

Famous New York socialite Paris Hilton thinks the metaverse may be the perfect place to find one’s true love.

Such quests include choosing a wedding outfit and ring, “rescuing a castaway and flirting with other contestants.”
