The term “Metaverse” has a romanticized futuristic feel to it.
However, different metaverses have existed for quite some time especially in online games such as MMO’s (Massive Multiplayer Online Games).
However, as Facebook recently announced they are changing their name from Facebook to Meta to pursue big efforts for people to live and build a world within the metaverse, the hype has started to be very real.
So, what does this mean?
Will “the metaverse” be like a new internet?
Will it be mostly owned and controlled by Facebook aka Meta?
Many questions like this are arising but we are still optimistic that freedom is something that would be vital for a world within the metaverse.
If there is freedom, there is a great chance that gambling will exist within the metaverse more than it already does on VR casinos.
Will there be gambling entrepreneurs in the metaverse?
As gambling is one of the oldest and most entertaining forms of spending time I believe it could very well happen that VR & AR casinos increase a lot in popularity.
A more advanced metaverse could be the thing that really makes these kinds of casinos enter the mainstream crowd.
As the technology for VR and AR becomes better and the hardware becomes more light and easy to use, the natural way is that we will start living in the technology instead of bending our necks, viewing it on our phones.
If we see freedom to build within the mainstream metaverse many business opportunities will open up, I believe the gambling industry will be one of the first to explore the possibilities this new digital age carries.
Let’s see what the future holds but I am excited to see what happens in this field.
