In Cluster's metaverse, users can create their own 3D avatars, interact with other users, and attend events such as concerts, conferences, and art exhibitions. Users can arrange their favorite items in their own virtual space, or visit other users' spaces. The goal of Cluster is to create an environment where people can explore and interact freely, no matter where they are in the world. The cluster also hosts corporate events, and the cumulative mobilization will exceed 20 million in January 2023.
