Metaverse: What does this mean to Service Providers?

Have you heard the buzz about the metaverse? "Meta what?" Some techies describe it as the digital second life or computers' fourth wave, a kind of virtual reality. For those who have kids, you are familiar with this cultural phenomenon in online games such as Fortnite and Roblox.
An article from time.com was published about a 13-year-old boy who wanted to celebrate his birthday on Roblox. This made it possible for his friends to play different games and hang out together in a virtual space.

The fashion world has its own Metaverse Fashion Week where international brands and thousands of guests are able to virtually experience fashion shows and buy and wear digital clothing directly from catwalk avatars.

Some other popular metaverse trends are hybrid offices, distance learning, and online communities.

What is exactly metaverse?
According to fashionlaw.com, the metaverse is a network of always-on virtual environments in which people can interact with one another and digital objects while operating virtual representations – or avatars – of themselves. Think of a combination of immersive virtual reality, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and the web, and you have what is increasingly being referred to as the metaverse.

While metaverse can be numerous things and descriptions, there are three forms according to fashionlaw.com:

  1. Presence - being in a virtual space
  2. Interoperability- travel between virtual spaces with the same virtual assets like virtual meetings where you can create your own avatar, and
  3. Standardization - what enables interoperability of platforms and services across the metaverse
