What is Metaverse?
Microsoft, Facebook and other tech companies have claimed a virtual reality universe is the future of the Internet. Facebook should be known as a “metaverse company”, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in July on an earnings call. It moved closer to this vision in recent weeks revealing a virtual reality workspace for remote workers. In May, Microsoft said it is “uniquely positioned” with a stack of artificial intelligence and mixed reality tools to help companies start developing “metaverse apps today”, as mentioned in a recent article on Washington Post.
So, what is Metaverse? The Metaverse, a term coined by sci-fi novelist Neal Stephenson in his 1992 novel “Snow Crash” to describe the virtual world in which the protagonist, Hiro Protagonist, socializes, shops, and vanquishes real-world enemies through his avatar. In the current tech-realm, the Metaverse is much of a muchness, a new kind of Internet, a network of always-on virtual environments in which many people can interact with digital objects. They also have virtual representations of themselves or so-called avatars.
Metaverse is coming closer.
With the significant development of Blockchain Technology, Metaverse is coming closer. Imagine a game powered by NFT technology, allowing players to collect and exchange assets in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). In other words, this is a virtual economy where players own assets and have the right to make final decisions. A parallel universe allows people to circulate and create value by digitizing tangible assets.
So, has this trend become imminent or still in its early stage? Does the enthusiastic participation of many blockchain projects founded by the Vietnamese mean proof of this trend? Is the Vietnamese market ready to adopt NFTs?
