It’s easy to confuse the Metaverse with Mark Zuckerberg’s “Meta”. If you haven’t already guessed it, the two are not the same.
The Metaverse is a technological utopia. It represents everything the internet can possibly become. Meta is simply Facebook and all its subsidiaries rebranded.
Interestingly enough, reports say that Mark intentionally rebranded his company to get ahead of his competitors in the race to eutopia.
Business decisions like the one Facebook just made have put everyone on notice. Will the metaverse be realized sooner than expected? Or are we too excited about all of this?
The following three facts will put your uncertainties to rest.
1. 74% of Adults Are Thinking About Joining The Metaverse
Studies show that 74% of adults in the US are thinking about joining the metaverse. 41% of respondents want to experience things that they can’t in a physical reality.
The coming of the metaverse is getting the hype that a new pair of Jordans at your local shoe store would.
Another top reason people are excited for the Metaverse is community.
Research reveals that 40% of respondents are excited to use the platform to make new connections around the world.
2. The market cap for the metaverse is 14.8 Trillion
Market cap tells us a lot about the value of a thing or business. A high market cap means that business is good and investors will plug money into it.
The metaverse isn’t even an established thing yet, but there are trillions of dollars going into its establishment.
If this ain’t the future, I don’t know what is!
3. 50,000 users are already signed up for the metaverse
Numbers don’t lie.
Reports reveal that as of October 2021, 50,000 users were ready to enter the Metaverse.
50,000 people signed up for a platform that isn’t fully understood or developed as yet.
It’s clear that the Metaverse is growing somewhat of a cult following. If this continues, the internet experience will never be the same!
The Metaverse cannot be ignored.
Tech companies of all shapes and sizes are laying the foundation for services they intend to offer as soon as it’s potential is realized.
No one knows exactly when the metaverse will be launched, but all are eager to step into it. At this rate, the gap between reality and fantasy may dissolve.
