Is the Metaverse Likely to Succeed?
It looks like people will soon stop treating the metaverse as science fiction. By 2026, one in four people will spend at least one hour a day in the metaverse for work, shopping, education, communication, and entertainment. That’s why tech giants are serious about the metaverse.
Almost all major companies are investing in the metaverse in some way. Meta is going to invest $10B a year to make the metaverse work. Microsoft acquired Blizzard for almost $69B in the race to the metaverse. And non-tech brands like Coca-Cola, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana are creating digital products with the metaverse in mind. If the metaverse takes off, they’ll be among the first to capitalize on it. Did you know that several startups have already received funding for their metaverse business ideas?
