About networking

“Because even if the Metaverse is “fully realized,” it will not really exist. It, alongside each of its trees, their many leaves, and the forests they’re situated in, will just be data stored in a seemingly infinite network of servers.”

“The Metaverse And How It Will Revolutionize Everything”, Matthew Ball

About computing

“Imagine, as you navigate immersive spaces, your account continuously bidding out the necessary computing tasks to mobile devices held but unused by people near you, perhaps people walking down the street next to you, to render or animate the experiences you encounter. Later, when you’re not using your own evices, you would be earning tokens as they return the favor.”

About virtual world engines

“But if we don’t have a single Metaverse platform or operator—and if we don’t want one, either—then we need to find a way to interoperate between them.”

About interoperability

“Of course, publishers don’t want to make their competitors’ games better, nor are they usually inclined to share their play data. But no gaming company benefits from toxic behavior, and everyone is negatively affected by it. Economics, then, will drive standardization and interoperation over time.”

About hardware

“The Metaverse is a mostly intangible experience: a persistent network of virtual worlds, data, and supporting systems. However, physical devices are the gateway to accessing and creating these experiences.”

About payment rails

“The policies of Apple and Google limit the growth potential not only of virtual world platforms, but also the internet at large. For many, the World Wide Web is the best “proto-Metaverse.””

About blockchain

“However, one of the central lessons of the computing era is that the platforms that best serve developers and users will win. Blockchains have a long way to go, but many see their immutability and transparency as the best way to ensure the interests of these two constituencies remain prioritized as the Metaverse economy grows.”
