As expectations for Metaverse have grown recently, bubble theory has also emerged. Metaverse often refers to a three-dimensional virtual world mixed with reality, but in a bigger sense, it is a new world mixed with digital space and real space. Humans naturally moved to the digital new world after holding smartphones in their hands. The reason was ‘because it is advantageous for survival’. Now, humans live in a digital world such as Amazon, the world’s best shopping mall, YouTube, the world’s largest broadcasting station, and App Store, the world’s best software store. And this new world is evolving into a new world with enhanced virtual reality called Metaverse .

The main character is in his teens and twenties. They are flowing into the Metaverse platform at a frightening pace. More than 60 percent of U.S. teenagers have joined virtual reality games such as Minecraft and Roblox, 350 million have joined the battle game Fortnite and 300 million have joined Zeppetto, run by Naver, to enjoy various ways of virtual reality life. In a survey of teenage children in the U.S. by Roblox in June 2020, about 52 percent said they spent “more time on relationships within Roblox than real-life friends.”. What is the appeal of the Metaverse platform that is different from the existing Internet and social network service (SNS)? Generation Z, born after 1995, learned about the world by absorbing knowledge through smartphones and further formed a worldview. Humans learn the world through games when they are young. If people in their 50s and 60s made friends and learned society by playing marbles, slap-match and squid games, they met friends and learned about society based on characters that replace them in virtual reality such as Minecraft, Roblox, Fortnite and Zeppetto. 로블록스 추천게임

The COVID-19 situation that followed for more than two years also accelerated the clock of the Metaverse world. While taking classes on YouTube, watching favorite singers’avatar performances on a Metaverse platform, and shopping with friends with avatars, life in Metaverse began to be mixed with the real world. This is the beginning of Metaverse evolution. The U.S., which won the Internet platform war, is also prominent in the Metaverse platform field with big tech companies at the forefront. Apple, Microsoft (MS), Google, Meta (formerly Facebook), and NVIDIA are typical. Facebook has changed the company’s name to Meta and opened a metaverse platform called “Horizon World,” while ” Oculus Quest” hopes to sell wireless VR (virtual reality) headsets. MS is also converting its own messenger ‘Teams’ to the Metaverse method and is trying to expand its control of the Metaverse game market by acquiring Blizzard, the creator of StarCraft for as much as 82 trillion won. In addition, AR (Augmented Reality) Glass is being developed instead of HoloLens in cooperation with Samsung Electronics. Apple has also announced that it will release VR display devices by 2023, and Google is also developing VR-based video call services. It’s not just products and services. As huge capital and talented people are put into the Metaverse market, the market economy ecosystem of the new virtual world itself is rapidly expanding. The key elements that make it are NFT and cryptocurrency. NFT is an ownership registration system using blockchain. Digital items are impossible to trade because they are exactly the same when copied. However, as soon as you register with NFT, you can guarantee the ownership and sell it. It is similar to the certificate of registration of the apartment. Many digital artists are already selling these artworks. Registration of works is done with NFT, and transactions are made using Ethereum, a cryptocurrency. However, as the Metaverse and NFT markets are activated, a new type of business is growing. Many companies that want to secure Z-generation customers have opened shops on platforms such as Zeppetto and Roblox advertised and sold various items, and are now creating new business models using NFT and cryptocurrency.
