The Metaverse and Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook
The Metaverse is a virtual space where people can meet, interact, and share experiences with others. It offers a new level of digital sociability, as well as the opportunity for businesses to reach new markets. It will also revolutionize the digital economy by exposing customers to content and products they may not otherwise experience.
Metaverse applications have already attracted significant attention, with Microsoft, NVIDIA, and Epic Games all announcing plans to explore it. VISA recently acquired the first NFT for $150,000, and a number of popular brands are diving into the space. For example, Gucci partnered with the online game creation system Roblox to sell digital accessories and NFTs. Coca-Cola has also sold digital tokens that allow users to access the Metaverse.
In the near future, the Metaverse will be driven by entrepreneurs, who will offer services, produce content, and do useful things for the metaworld. The key to success is being able to effectively monetize these services. Tokens can be used as payment for psychological services, as well as for other products and services. For instance, online cinemas may issue tokens for movie viewing rights. Tokens can also be used to enter events or clubs.
The Metaverse may be a few years off. According to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, it may take five to ten years for metaverse services to become commonplace. But some aspects are already available, including ultra-fast broadband and virtual reality headgear. Other popular games already use meta events, including Roblox, and Fortnite is on its way to competing.
