The emergence of the metaverse is not a crisis, but an escalation battle based on the Internet. Of course, if you can’t keep up with your thinking, you may fall, you may lose your job and your wealth.
On October 31, 1959, a Scorpio boy was born in Maryland, USA. He was later the famous cyberpunk stream science fiction writer Neil Stephenson.
Stephenson’s father was a professor of electrical engineering, and his grandfather was a professor of physics. So he is naturally fascinated by physics and electronics, and he has also worked as a computer programmer.
He could have been an engineer with a relatively high salary, but Stephenson had to write novels as a literary youth. However, he never expected that the concept he created later caused a huge wave in the industry and the capital market.
Metaverse is in a mess
In 1984, the 25-year-old Stephenson published his first novel “University”, satirizing campus life, based on his alma mater Boston University. A few years later, he published an environmental thriller “Zodiac”, and everyone began to notice this young man.
At the age of 33, Stephenson finally became popular. It was not too soon or too late to become famous. His masterpiece as a cyberpunk master-“Avalanche” made his debut.
Metaverse described in Avalanche
Zuckerberg directly changed his company’s name to “Meta”.
US stocks are crazy. Metaverse concept stocks rose sharply, while Nvidia rose sharply, with a total market value of US$722.6 billion. At the beginning of this month, Nvidia’s market value surpassed Berkshire to become the seventh largest company in the US stock market.
In March, Roblox, the first stock of Metaverse, landed on the New York Stock Exchange. On the day of listing, its stock price rose from US$45 to US$70. The current total market value is nearly US$45 billion. In April, American game developer Epic Games announced the completion of a new round of financing of 1 billion US dollars. The financing funds will be mainly used to develop the metaverse business, and the company’s valuation has reached nearly 30 billion US dollars.
Landlords will accept more shocks
What does the metaverse do?
There is no accepted definition, but it can be roughly defined as follows:
Under the influence of the traditional Internet, with various technological advancements, more and more real-life relationship scenes, interactions, and identities are projected into a virtual world.
For example, people can achieve the purpose of face-to-face meetings without actually meeting together.
People don’t need to go to Midway Island to participate in a naval battle, but only need to wear relevant equipment to feel the cruelty of participating in a naval battle on Midway Island.
So, why did game stocks start to skyrocket?
Because a new gameplay was born, users can spend more money. This immersive experience, low latency, and immersive sense give users an immersive sensory experience, which is unmatched by traditional games.
Of course, what Metaverse has changed is not only the gaming industry, but also the conference video industry and the office building industry. In particular, the fate of landlords who bought office buildings may face challenges.
The listed companies related to the conference video include Leyard, Warburg Pincus, 263, TCL Technology, etc., these companies will feel the positive impact or impact brought by Metaverse in the future.
Once a conference video company breaks out in the metaverse, and has occupied the market through rapid marketing, there will be nothing for other companies. It is possible to provide services for free in exchange for users, and then make money by inserting advertisements. If you don’t want to be inserted into advertisements, you will pay.
Especially in the epidemic, this process may accelerate.
As long as the cost is low enough and the operation is convenient enough, conference video software companies that make good use of the metaverse elements will definitely surpass the outdated and conservative video conference software.
The metaverse will cause a cruel shuffle
So, what job opportunities will Metaverse bring?
The production and R&D of equipment related to Metaverse will bring a wave of job opportunities in the manufacturing industry and IT industry, and corresponding sales job opportunities will also appear.
There are quite a few job opportunities for blue-collar workers.
The job opportunities of metaverse stylist have greatly increased, such as helping people design virtual characters and digital costumes.
The income and job opportunities of Metaverse Asset Advisors will increase. How much your equipment in the game is worth, how to appreciate your NFT painting, and when to sell it all require a professional analysis by Metaverse Asset Consultants.
Yuan Universe legal counsel is also necessary, and the corresponding laws and regulations will also be extensively revised.
Metaverse will also change the banking, insurance, film, media, and sports industries. If there is any change, there will be new job demands.
The emergence of the metaverse is not a crisis, but an escalation battle based on the Internet. Of course, if the thinking cannot keep up, it may fall, it may lose its job and wealth.
In a sense, the opportunity of the metaverse is seen as a cruel shuffling battle. Some companies will go straight up, and some will fall from the top.
