On Oct 28, Facebook’s annual Connect conference proposed to rebrand itself to Meta, which is another sign of its metaverse ambitions, making the concept of “metaverse” really popular again.
The Metaverse, originated from the novel “Avalanche” by American science fiction writer Neil Stephenson in 1992. The Metaverse is equivalent to constructing a virtual world that is completely the same as the real world, and everyone can freely shuttle between digital and reality.
In fact, anyone who pays attention to this concept may know that there were virtual worlds on Roblox, Cryptovoxels etc. Players can play games, learn, communicate, interact just like in the movie “Ready Player One”.
With the development of science and technology, science fiction has now ushered in an opportunity to become a reality. 2021 can be described as the “Meta” year. The concept of Metaverse is a hot topic. Many companies are starting to focus their business models around the Metaverse.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says:
“I believe the metaverse is the next chapter for the internet.”
When it comes to Metaverse, NFT has to be mentioned.
Facebook said the company’s metaverse will support non-fungible tokens (NFT) in a possible boost to the Ethereum protocol, where the digital collectibles format has thrived. As an essential element in the Metaverse, NFT plays an important role in Metaverse. NFT trading volume grew 38,000% year-over-year to hit $10.7 billion during the third quarter 2021, according to an analysis by DappRadar, a company that helps people track NFTs and other decentralized assets.
Following an initial rapid growth in late 2017, when CryptoKitties collection gained worldwide popularity, the size of the NFT market has remained mostly stable until mid 2020, with an average of ∼60000 US dollars traded daily. Starting from July 2020, the market has experienced dramatic growth, with the total volume exchanged daily surpassing ∼10 million US dollars in March 2021, thus becoming 150 times larger than it was 8 months earlier.
