There is no doubt that the metaverse is magical. The reason why the metaverse has such great magic lies in its inclusiveness, its primary, its chaos, and its infinite imagination. It is because of this great magic of the metacomes that we see so many players involved in the metacomes, and continue to use their own actions, continue to push the metacomes from one peak to another peak.
However, when the metaverse was first recognized, this was not the case. In many cases, what people think of as a metaverse is nothing more than an existence encouraged by capital markets. When the tuyere is over, everything will return to calm. This is inevitable, because at the beginning of the metaverse, it did become inextricably linked to capital.
We can see this by looking at Facebook’s stock price after adding the concept of a metaverse. Later, the pursuit and attention of the capital market to the metacomph exacerbated such a phenomenon. At this point, the metauniverse and capital have produced a clipping and disorderly relationship. But is this really the case? Is the metaverse really a meaningless existence trumpeted by capital? As the metaverse began to mature, more and more signs began to show that this was not the case. The great magic contained in the metaverse itself is the fundamental reason why it is constantly sought after.
However, if we have to find a footnote to the magic of the metaverse, I prefer to attribute the magic of the metaverse to its “inclusiveness”. It is precisely because of such “inclusiveness” of the meta-universe that the meta-universe can constantly open people’s imagination of it, constantly allow a variety of characters to participate in it, and constantly refresh the original cognition of it.
Metaverse technology is inclusive
When we talk about the meta-universe, we always think of a series of new technologies such as big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain and virtual reality.
It is precisely because the technology of the metacomes is inclusive that we are seeing players of all types of new technologies begin to focus their attention on the metacomes. To some extent, the metaverse has become an outlet for new technologies to be implemented and practiced. The application of new technology to the meta-universe is equivalent to finding a way out for the commercial practice of the new technology, which is equivalent to making the new technology from an ideal to a reality. Therefore, what we see is that no matter the “soft players” represented by big data and cloud computing, or the “hard players” represented by VR/AR, they all focus on the meta-universe.
Imagine if the metaverse were only dedicated to one new technology, or if there were only a handful of new technologies, would it have so much power? Apparently, no. It is precisely because of the inclusiveness of the meta-universe in new technologies that so many players of new technologies devote themselves to it, constantly looking for ways and methods to combine their own technologies with the meta-universe.
In many cases, the author believes that the meta-universe and the Internet are similar in many ways. If there is a summary of these similarities, the metaverse and the Internet’s boundless tolerance for technology is the key reason why they have so many similarities. Looking back on the development of the Internet, we can see very clearly that the Internet became the Internet precisely because it contained a series of Internet-related technologies and implemented these technologies in business.
Likewise, the metaverse, still like this, is still copying the way the Internet developed.
The metaverse scene is inclusive
Anything that is new, the key thing that makes it an age is its universality. The so-called universality means that it can be connected with enough scenes and industries, and it can include all aspects of people’s food, clothing, housing, transportation and so on. We can also see some of this in the metaverse.
In the past, the metacomes were often associated with social interaction, and in many cases, one of the scenarios that the metacomes were supposed to first fall into place was social interaction. However, with the deepening of people’s understanding of the meta-universe, more and more people are beginning to realize that the meta-universe is not only associated with social interaction, it is not only exclusive to social interaction. In addition to socializing, the metaverse can be connected to many other scenarios, and these scenarios can really build a whole new ecosystem of how people eat, wear, live, and use.
When the metaverse can include so many scenes, it is a sign that it is not just a “unique” being, but a “universal” being. It is based on such a “universality” of the meta-universe that so many different types of players can find solutions in the meta-universe and so many players can devote themselves to it.
When the metaverse is connected to a vast number of scenarios, when every aspect of our lives is changed by the metaverse, then we are living in a metaverse world. With this as the beginning, the so-called metaverse age may no longer be just a slogan, but a real presence that can accompany each of us and bring changes to our production and life. Obviously, the same cannot be achieved without the inclusion of a meta-universe of different types of application scenarios.
Users of the metaverse are inclusive
No matter what kind of business model, no matter what kind of new species, it must be able to accommodate different types of users, it must be able to include different types of users. Without this, any new thing, new business model, will not be able to achieve long-term development.
Reviewing the development history of the Internet, we can also see such a clue.
One of the most important reasons why the Internet has achieved such great development and why the Internet is connected with both end B and end C lies in its inclusiveness of traffic and users. With such inclusiveness, there will be traffic on the Internet and there will be dividends. Otherwise, everything would be nonexistent.
By the same token, with such inclusiveness, the metaverse can include different types of users and turn itself into a new traffic hub.
The ebb of the Internet era has long been described as the peak of traffic dividends. I think that the ebb tide of the Internet as traffic dividend peak is not quite right. Relative to the ebb tide of traffic dividend, the author is willing to regard it as a transfer of traffic.
In a sense, Internet-style business models and experience methods have been unable to meet the needs of users, which is the key to its decline. In fact, the traffic dividend has always been there, it’s just that we need to meet the needs of those users in a timely manner and actually convert those users into new traffic dividends.
One of the most important reasons for the emergence of the meta-universe is that it meets the new needs of users with new business models and new ways of experience, and really finds new traffic dividends in the new traffic era, and finds back those lost traffic. Standing on the standpoint of the metaverse, those who have not been changed by the metaverse, those who have not been affected by the metaverse, can be classified into its flow dividend category.
It is the release of such a new flow dividend, such a new development dividend derived from the meta-universe, which releases such a huge magic, and makes so many people devote themselves to it. On the other hand, if the meta-universe lacked such an inclusive audience, the ability to turn flow quantification into magic, it would not have attracted so many players to it.
The metaverse is unleashing more and more magic.
If we dig into the reason, the inclusiveness of the metaverse itself is undoubtedly the root cause. Only by recognizing such inclusiveness of the meta-universe and truly prying into the new dividends released behind such inclusiveness can we truly understand the real reason for the popularity of the meta-universe and the real connotation and significance of the meta-universe.
