Recently, the concept of the metaverse has fallen and weakened, but on the whole it is still in a relatively hot state, which does not affect everyone’s attention to the metaverse.
How hot is the metaverse? Technology giants from all over the world have deployed
ARC Group, the world’s leading smart car manufacturer in the United Kingdom, uses the existing resources of Metaspace to create big data and take the lead in deploying to enter the Metaverse. In addition, the Japanese social gaming giant GREE announced in early August this year that it will start to enter the Metaverse field with its subsidiary REALITY as the center. At the same time, Facebook changed its name to Meta and launched a VR remote creation office platform. Even some domestic technology giants are busy acquiring VR companies or preemptively registering the “Metaverse” trademark, such as Tencent, Mihayou, Kuaishou, Baidu, NetEase, etc.
The popularity of metaverse arouses great attention from government departments of various countries
- South Korea
In November, the Seoul Metropolitan Government of South Korea put forward the first work plan in the field of virtual reality services-the “Yuan Universe Seoul Five-Year Plan”, announcing an estimated investment of 3.9 billion won, which will be divided into three phases from next year in economy, culture, tourism, and education. , Letters and visits and other business areas of the municipal government to create a metaverse administrative service ecology. In addition, on August 31, South Korea’s Ministry of Finance announced the 2022 budget, planning to spend 20 million US dollars on the development of the Metaverse platform.
On November 15th, Russian President Vladimir Putin affirmed Metacosmos when attending the 2021 “Wild Smart Journey” international rally (AIJourney2021), saying that the performance of Metacosmos can be applied to benefit the people. This is because the metaverse allows people in different time and space, with the help of the virtual reality world, to leapfrog development space without leaving home.
At present, the Chinese environment does not have clear regulations to support Metaverse. However, the Internet giant Tencent revealed that although compared with other countries in the world, China may have its own management rules for Metaverse, as long as it provides user experience under the regulatory framework. , The Chinese government may allow “Metaverse” virtual environment services to operate in China.
In fact, the attitude of the Chinese local government can also explain some problems for Yuan Universe. Many local governments have begun to increase support for “Metaverse” to create a convenient life circle. The Shanghai Municipal Party Committee’s Economic Work Conference released active policies to relevant companies and capital, which will guide companies to step up their deployment of important platforms for the interaction between the virtual world and the real society in the future.
In addition, domestic technology giants have also begun to carry out in-depth exchanges and cooperation with local governments in the field of metaverse. On December 25, NetEase and the Sanya municipal government reached a cooperation agreement that will allow NetEase to set up NetEase’s Hainan headquarters in Sanya and build NetEase’s metaverse industrial base. project.
It can be seen that under a specific regulatory framework, Metaverse is also a more convenient thing in the eyes of many Chinese local governments, and it is also developing in this direction. The application of Metaverse in China may become more and more in the future. Extensive, or will penetrate into all aspects of people’s lives.
In general, the fact that Metaverse is so popular nowadays is mainly due to the following reasons:
First, the metaverse has strong sustainable development and compatibility; second, the metaverse has independent economic attributes; third, the metaverse can completely connect all and create on its own; fourth, and most importantly, the metaverse The resources are unlimited. The metaverse will create a brand new and mature virtual world in the future, which can satisfy many human imaginations. It can be said that the future is unlimited, so capital and enterprises value the metaverse so much.
Although Metaverse is still in an early stage, it is better to take the lead in layout than others. Especially now that the market space is getting smaller and smaller, and there is no room for development in many fields, the metaverse has become a battleground for capital, and its impact is by no means generalized by capital speculation.
