The app also allows users to chat with friends while their avatars participate in virtual activities such as camping, swinging, dancing, sailing, and more. Besides that, your avatars can also visit and leave notes in other users’ rooms.

Bondee’s Relevance To The Metaverse
You may be wondering what Bondee has to do with Web3 and the Metaverse. It’s a cute social media app that has nothing to do with crypto or NFTs.
That may be true for now, but little did you know, Bondee has blockchain elements.
While real-world money will be used to purchase B-Beans, B-Beans can be used to purchase NFTs, which users can then store in their blockchain wallets.
When you make a purchase, the app will receive the following information: your blockchain wallet balance, the details of your B-Beans order, and the details of your NFT order.
Furthermore, it is currently unknown what Bondee’s NFT offerings will be.
Why Does This Matter?
Okay, now we get it. Bondee is cute, and it will incorporate NFTs, but so what?
Let me tell you why this is a big deal. The whole app is like the vision of the metaverse but in miniature form.
With Bondee, we now know that people are indeed interested in this kind of experience. experiences where they are in control, have avatars that look like them, and interact with other people in a completely new way.
Nowadays, a simple Facebook status update or new tweet won’t cut it. People are now longing to experience something more. That’s where the metaverse comes in.
The sudden fame of Bondee is a living testament to that.
