Presented as the future of the internet, the metaverse has already made a name for itself around the world.
This new, all-virtual universe, grandly showcased by Facebook (now Meta) and its iconic CEO Mark Zuckerberg, is now at the heart of the company’s strategy.
Finance, art, e-commerce, education… it will occupy a large place in our existence. With this understanding, Métaverse Mate, an expert agency in WEB 3.0, has decided to be a gateway to integration in this revolution.
The structure provides companies with the creation of a metaverse universe and many other inherent services.
What is the Metaverse?
Many consider the Metaverse to be a video game. However, this universe goes way beyond “gaming”. To facilitate the understanding of the metaverse, it is necessary to explain in advance the concept of web 2.0 and that of web 3.0.
You are undoubtedly familiar with the World Wide Web, the famous WWW. This public hypertext system has long made it possible to open web pages through a browser. This is still the case today. What connection to Web 2.0 would you say. Know that Web 2.0 is only one stage in the evolution of the WWW.
In Web 2.0, website owners and others are no longer the only ones who can post content. Internet users can also offer content that is accessible to everyone. Thanks to the advent of this concept, the web has become a real platform with an excellent user experience and an emphasis on collective intelligence. Over time, the internet has made it a network where user participation has become essential.
Social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp or even Snapchat are in a sense the symbol of this Web 2.0. But just like the WWW, the latter will undergo an evolution: Web 3.0 symbolized by… the Metaverse.
Web 3.0: the metaverse
As you will have understood, the metaverse (also written as “metaverse”) is the new phase of the social experience that the web has become. The concept is very difficult to define these days; every expert has their opinion on the question. However, a definitive approach seems obvious and fits the idea perfectly.
The metaverse is a virtual and expansive 3D universe in which users evolve and interact in real time in the form of avatars (or holograms). The space within the metaverse is similar to that of the real world. You can play, buy, participate in events, learn and even collaborate like in real life.
So you understand that this is a real revolution. Some have even called it a parallel world. The experts prefer to speak of “extension to the real world”.
The metaverse therefore hosts (like social networks) a community of users represented by holographic characters. The virtual space develops and evolves according to the choices of the connected people and their interactions. It is an endless universe like the real physical world.
Metaverse: how does it work?
You’re probably wondering how the metaverse works. Keep in mind that this is hardly an ordinary game or app that you can download from the Google Store. The metaverse is a well-developed environment that uses blockchain technology to ensure greater security of data and exchanges.
To access this 3D universe, you must register on one of the platforms that grant access. They are indeed numerous. The best known is certainly Méta (Facebook). There is also Rec Room, Decentraland, Horizon Worlds, but also Microsoft.
You also need to have the right equipment. Indeed, to enter the metaverse you need a computer or a smartphone, a virtual reality headset and many other elements.
Also note that nothing is ready for the metaverse. There are still many challenges to overcome to make this revolution inevitable. Including the increase in global computing power and network level, power consumption, interoperability, etc.
Why is the metaverse THE next digital revolution?
The metaverse will make a lot possible, both for individuals and companies. Therefore, many specialists consider it the next revolution of our time.
Thanks to the metaverse, we can:
- Be more productive: Companies can create their own environment to host meetings and complete tasks faster than in real life. Agencies like Metaverse Mate help companies with this. Individuals will also be able to create a personal and favorable space to increase their productivity;
- Entertaining differently: The metaverse takes entertainment to another level. Instead of attending an event remotely, you will be integrated into it. For video games, the player no longer just leads a character; he is immersed and is at the heart of the action;
- Learning in an original way: the internet has made distance learning possible. With the Metaverse, learning becomes more visual, realistic and interactive than ever before. The students will be able to touch certain realities that are difficult or even impossible to access (discovery of constellations and celestial bodies, observation of the construction of the Burj Al Arab from A to Z, etc.);
- And so forth.
