Metaverse, which mainly utilizes virtual and augmented reality, has emerged as a buzzing concept this year.

In broad terms, it is a concept of a shared virtual space where people can interact multidimensionally through internet.

As Facebook Inc has rebranded itself as ‘Meta’ and detailed a plan on building “its own immersive digital world,” many early adopters of digital realism reportedly criticized Facebook for trying to capitalize on the metaverse concept.

Meanwhile, some analysts and investors believe that metaverse could be the next big thing on the internet, especially as Facebook’s entry could raise people’s interest in the digital worlds and, in turn, lead to the development of multiple metaverse spaces.
