Metaverse, the virtual world, the virtual lands of Metaverse that have become insane prices. Why did Mark Zuckerberg turn his entire company into the Meta world, and is the investing in Metaverse profitable? Or is it entirely a crazy bubble that will disappear in the coming years???
We will answer all these questions in this episode, follow me for the next…
Metaverse… Where did the idea come from?
First… Metaverse is a word made up of two syllables: meta, meaning beyond, and the word “Verse” is a short for “universe”.
so, Metaverse means finding a world beyond the truth and connected to the real world, which we exist in it.
The roots of metaverse concept come from the past. Almost 30 years ago, when the American writer Neal Stephenson wrote the novel “snow crash”. It is a science-fiction novel, its idea was to create a virtual world parallel to the real world, and the writer Neal made the characters of the novel interact with each other, but in the form of symbolic images and in a virtual world of their choice.
There are 3 main aspects that differ from the Internet which are:
You can’t impose your virtual tangible presence in the internet, but in the world of the meta you can . You are present virtually and you touch things with metaverse gloves, you also move from place to place virtually through certain digital codes. and this thing is not available on the Internet.
In light of the great development of metaverse, “Intel” the global company turned to metaverse and metacomputers to deploy complex applications more easily, and the Intel Core processors in 2022 to provide the best games. Augmented reality and Virtual Reality (VR/AR) experiences, and realistic movie animations on computers and workstations supported by Intel processors.
Glasses (Oculus 2), are the glasses that you must use to enter the virtual world or metaverse… Put the glasses, Hold the controllers, and in seconds you will be in another world.
It is a complete digital world, close to the real world, and thanks to haptic simulation, you will feel that you have caught the things around you.
You will design your own avatar and choose your clothes, home and digital room.
There are people who tried the virtual world and said that they felt dizzy at first, something was not normal, and they became short of breath, but after a period of using the glasses, things became normal.
You know that the metaverse includes more than 250 thousand worlds,
and about 40 thousand users enter and design their digital body “the avatar”.
“VR Chat” company has allocated $95 million for developing the digital world to enable users to buy and sell, and the company’s total investment is $80 million.
Why is this huge amount of money?
Because the Metaverse technology was widely accepted by the people who used it, and people loved the virtual world in order to escape from the real world. For example, you can fly in a zero-gravity environment with the game (Echo), Or even travel through the real world in your room through the ” Wander” app, or go fishing with “Real VR Fishing’. Also, you can meet your team in the WorkPlace app or visit art galleries through Venues.
Do you remember when Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp suddenly crashed? Mark lost millions of dollars, we will not mention the details, but I want to tell you about the fact that Mark changed the company name to (Meta) and made a big fuss. Zuckerberg said that metaverse technology is the future of the Internet in the coming years, and Facebook will be entering it through VR glasses and you won’t need a computer.
Facebook said at that time that it would start a new trading in its name, under the new stock index “MVRS”, as of December 1.
Even there are people who are buying virtual lands worth millions of dollars in the world of metaverses,
and you can pay digital currencies (Ethereum) that are almost equal to 3900 dollars,
the purchase of digital lands has become a sensation among investors to catch up with the great digital development in the world of the Internet.
And if you ask me, how can you buy a real estate in Metaverse?
And you will need a digital wallet with a suitable balance, to transfer your money to cryptocurrencies such as “Ether” or “Mana” and “Sandbox” currencies.
With the help of almost complete system provided by Metaverse, you can buy, rent, exchange or even sell real-estate in the digital world,
validating property rights through non-fungible token addresses (NFTs) which are the “technology standard for unique digital assets”. Such as real estate and virtual homes.
If you asked me, if it is profitable?
I will tell you that it is very profitable… which investors talk about with long-term profits for years to come,
but with every profit there is the possibility of loss,
the loss is expected because you are dealing with a virtual world and applications that could disappear in a second.
But when we come to reality, for sure, the big companies and their investments,
which are estimated of millions of dollars, will not invest in metaverses in vain, you are like them, your rights are reserved,
and the profit is the greatest possibility from metaverse transactions.
Despite the big criticisms to that technology,
but it continues and it is developing more. We cannot deny its negatives by reducing the real life of adolescents, who are the largest target group,
and making forbidden tires in reality are available through the virtual world.
In addition to Cybercrime among users, the control of technology, mental imbalance and dizziness due to digital worlds,
the large number of electronic crimes among users, and Technology addiction that causes depression.
I mean, we were able to bring the distant things closer, facilitated companies meetings and achieved realistic dreams in our virtual world,
but at the same time we harvested negatives of metaverse world, which we cannot tolerate.
Every new technology has its pros and cons, you decide what you should take from it and at the same time keep pace with the development that is happening around you.
At the end. If you ask me… Metaverse is the future of the Internet in the coming years?
I will tell you… of course.
Because it is very clear that metaverse is the path of digital technology, the Internet, and the digital currencies as well.
