How to Connect to GMV

To get the best experience in Genesis MetaVerse, your viewer must be easy to use. As with everything else online, usability is the single most important factor for your online grid experience. After all, no one wants to spend hours and hours just figuring out ‘how it works’ – they simply want to use the thing, as fast, cheaply and easily as possible.
