The Metaverse is still learning to walk. We can still see some trends shaping the first decade of digital technology.
Many people didn’t expect the beginning of this decade to go as planned. While some people lost thousands or even millions of dollars, others made billions. It is difficult to predict the current economic state of the world. There are always opportunities for those who see them.
One of those opportunities is the Metaverse.
The large user base that is spread across multiple platforms such as Roblox and Decentraland can help you analyze the current state of Metaverse. The Metaverse is home to over 400 million people, according to recent estimates.
Virtual worlds are big and will continue to grow. You must stay on top of the latest trends in order to capitalize. We have compiled the top Metaverse trends for 2020.
1. Metaverse Education
The concept of homeschooling is a new phenomenon that has taken the world by storm in the past two years. The traditional school system has been disrupted and schools and universities are now looking for new ways to educate students.
Multiplatforms, including Minecraft, have made it possible to create educational platforms for eLearning. We feel that this is only the beginning.
The eLearning market is expected to reach nearly $200 billion by the end of the decade. The Metaverse will only be able to realize its full potential if it invests in advanced platforms that combine virtual reality and augmented reality.
2. Marketing and Content Creation
Metaverse marketing is a key part of any business, just as online marketing flourished in 2000. Already, big brands are taking notice.
Metaverse has seen millions of dollars invested by Gucci, Adidas and, most importantly, Nike. 3D modeling is required to do this. The market is booming, which is good news for brands.
In the next five-years, the 3D-tool-creation industry is expected to grow to $6.3 billion. Designers can expect to earn good money with their creations. Take Sam Jordan, for example, who earns $90,000.00 a month selling 3D products in Roblox Metaverse.
3. Metaverse Dating
Millenials, and Gen Zers, are more comfortable with long-distance relationships than previous generations. Virtual marriages were even possible during the pandemic.
This evolution may lead to avatar-based relationships. Platforms such as NeverMet provide the tools for creating virtual relationships.
The Metaverse may allow you to date, maintain relationships, or even get married. Although it is still unclear how this will impact society, it is worth watching.
4. Art in the World of Web 3
Millions of people rarely get to see a live performance. In the 1990s Rod Stewart hosted a show that was watched by over 4 million people. However, that is nothing compared with the Metaverse.
Did you remember Travis Scott’s Fortnight concert? It was attended by 12,000,000 people. That’s what you call reach.
Art galleries and shows will be more common as more people join the Metaverse. Virtual reality art may even take off.
Without influencers, what would the Internet look like? Influencers have influenced huge sales in everything from gaming to movies, music to fashion, and even music. You can expect influencers soon to take over the Metaverse.
Alber Spencer Aretz is an example. Flamingo, a Roblox gamer better known as Flamingo is one of the most popular “letsplayers” on YouTube. His current worth is around $20 million, and he’s only in his 20s.
Influential people will be an integral part of the world as more people join the Metaverse to create content.
Look beyond 2020
These are the Metaverse trends that will define the 2020s. The Metaverse could evolve faster than we think, thanks to the advancement of enhanced avatar technologies, mixed realities, and Web 3.
The Internet became mainstream in around 10 years. It may take less time for the Metaverse.
