No matter the biases we have against the metaverse, it is taking the world by storm. Take it or leave it, Zuckerberg seems to be seeing something that others aren’t seeing; at least, not yet. With the World Cup already going on in Qatar, many opportunities have been provided for tech enthusiasts. Here are a few things to know.
Berlinverse is Finally Happening; How Do I Participate?
One of the best ways to learn about recent trends and technologies is through conferences. Understanding the Metaverse is vital at the moment as tech companies aim to profit from the next evolution of the internet. This is the reason Berlinverse is here for you.
Berlinverse is one of the leading Metaverse conferences that is happening in the heart of Germany – Berlin! It is a 2-day conference that showcases the Future of the Internet, Web3, Metaverse, NFTs, GameFI, Collectibles, Music, and Digital Art/Generative Art. The conference offers participants the chance to experience the Metaverse “hands-on”. Participants will explore, discover, and uncover a lot of amazing businesses, artists, entrepreneurs, and hidden treasures over the course of 2 days. It is scheduled to be held on the 6th and 7th of December, 2022. It should be of little wonder that the event would be held in the NOTAGALLERY on Postdamer street 124, 10783 Berlin, Germany. Berlin, as we know, is a city of art, music, and business altogether.
Chinese Platforms to Test Metaverse Tech During Qatar World Cup 2022 Broadcasts
With the 2022 World Cup setting the world agog, several Chinese platforms are introducing metaverse tech in their coverage of the game. The experiences, which will use virtual reality (VR) headsets and 5G as base tech, will allow the users to enjoy a metaverse-like view of the event, and will also give Chinese companies a chance to hone their implementations of this tech. China isn’t the only country that is set to benefit from Qatar’s 2022 World Cup. Migu, a subsidiary of China Mobile, the state-owned carrier, announced that it would develop a “world first” virtual environment for its users to enjoy the cup matches using VR headsets for an immersive and “surreal” experience. This was announced by Migu’s CCO Gan Yuqing, who also organized a “World Cup Music Festival” advertised to be held in the metaverse with a surprise visitor from the year 2070. More so, Bytedance, the owner of Tiktok, has announced that it will allow users of its VR goggles to enjoy soccer matches in digital spaces, letting them to invite other users for a shared metaverse viewing experience.
Local analysts think that the World Cup can be used by companies in the sector to test the quality of the experiences they can offer right now to their users. In the words of Chen Jia, an industry observer:
“Through the application of various scenarios in the metaverse of this World Cup, China can also test the overall quality of the industry chain in the field of virtual reality technology, and thus gain an early foothold in the sector.”
3 Coins That Will Revolutionize The Metaverse in 2023
In spite of the downturn which the metaverse seems to have taken, investors and analysts still see a potential in the metaverse. Investors are still looking out for projects that would experience big price increases in the near future. According to some surveys, some of the projects that can cause considerable change in 2023 include Theta Network (THETA), Decentraland (MANA) and Orbeon Protocol (ORBN). While Theta Network and Decentraland are well-known projects, Orbeon Protocol is just entering the second stage of its presale with a 125% price increase and is emerging as a new favorite among expert investor groups.
Orbeon Protocol is a multi-chain ecosystem that revolutionizes fundraising by empowering everyday people to invest in funding rounds for exciting businesses. The ORBN, which is the native token of the Orbeon Protocol, has an unusually high level of utility; it is required for business and investor users who want to use Orbeon Exchange. ORBN holders can also gain access to exclusive investor groups. Theta Network has managed to build a passionate community who are likely to continue supporting the project over the long term and it could well prove itself to be part of the critical infrastructure of the metaverse, with one important use case of Theta Network being the rendering of virtual reality (VR) worlds in real time. The price of the MANA token will appreciate as the adoption of the Decentraland metaverse grows; Decentraland (MANA) is used for both buying land (in the form of LAND tokens) and also transactions in the space. The Decentraland team has recently refuted some claims that just 675 users were active each day, saying that by their more accurate measures, the count was closer to 8,000.
