The convergence of Web3, Metaverse, and Digital Twins technologies is bringing a transformative revolution to Cyber-Physical-Social systems. Web3, which is driven by blockchain and decentralization, allows users to have control over their data and digital assets. Meanwhile, the Metaverse is creating a virtual space where people can interact, work, and live together. Digital twins offer a real-time digital representation of physical objects or spaces. When these three concepts intersect, they create a dynamic and interconnected digital ecosystem where the physical and virtual worlds blend seamlessly. This paper focuses on discussing the convergence of Metaverse, Web3 technologies, and Digital Twin. We will focus on the architecture of a Web3-enabled Metaverse, which leverages the decentralized nature of Web3 to offer a distributed Metaverse. The digital twin technology will realize a Cyber-Physical-Social data binding that enables the seamless mapping of physical and social activities into cyberspace. Finally, we will discuss the challenges of a Web3-enabled Metaverse, such as security, privacy, interoperability, and ethical concerns.
