New Business Models for the Metaverse
After the frenzied pursuit of capital, the metaverse ecosystem has entered a smooth stage of development. At such a stage, the metaverse is no longer seen as an omnipotent or all-inclusive thing, but a objective and rational thing.
If we look at the performance of Meta and the attitude of the capital market towards the metaverse, we can see a hint of this. However, without changing the inner logic of the metaverse, the so-called metaverse is still just a concept, and only a fundamental change in the view of the metaverse can bring its development to a brand new stage.
If we were to summarize the development of the metaverse, it would begin to enter a stage of self-evolution. In such a stage, we should not just invest in the local market, but also explore the commercialization of the metaverse. Only when we find the way to commercialize the metaverse, its development can truly enter a brand new stage of development.
For the application of the metaverse, different people will always have different understanding, and different players will always enter from different angles. If we make a summary of these practices of metaverse players, constantly reducing the distance between metaverse and real business is undoubtedly a major aspect. In my opinion, only when the bridge between metaverse and real business is found, only when the pathway between metaverse and real business is opened, the development of metaverse can enter a brand new stage.
There are Pain Points Need to Be Solved in the metaverse
One of the important reasons why metaverse is getting attention is that it can really solve the pain points and problems that cannot be solved by previous models and methods. However, at least from the current development, what the metaverse shows is more the wishful thinking of the players, and the dilemmas and problems that people encounter in reality are not really solved by the metaverse. As a result, the metaverse has only become a word game for the players to get high, but not for the downstream audience to really feel.
To solve this pain point and problem of metaverse, we need to continuously strengthen the application of metaverse and continuously explore and practice the commercialization of metaverse, when metaverse really finds the way and method of commercialization, its development can really enter a brand new stage. One of the important reasons why the players represented by Meta have fallen from the top of the world to the bottom of the world now is that they are only interested in capital, but have not really found the way and method to connect with the real business.
In my opinion, the real motivation that can bring long-lasting development to Meta Universe is that it really solves the real pain points. Without this, metaverse is still just an ungrounded existence, and without this, metaverse is still a existence that relies on capital transfusion to develop.
In order to make the metaverse truly solve the pain points of real business, it is necessary to lower the threshold of metaverse application and application, and it is necessary to realize the universalization of metaverse. Only when the application threshold of metaverse is no longer unreachable, and only when the application of metaverse becomes readily available, metaverse can truly become a tool to solve the pain points of reality, and its development can truly enter a brand new stage.
A Complete Metaverse Ecosystem Needs to Be Built
If the metaverse is only applied to a certain field or a few fields, its functions and effects cannot be maximized. It is the key to build a huge ecology, to continuously land the metaverse in more scenarios, and to continuously apply the metaverse to more users to ensure that it can continue to move forward. In this process, without a strong ecology and a complete system, it is impossible to get lasting development in any way.
Looking at the current metaverse players, we can clearly feel that they only land the metaverse in a few scenes, and only limit the metaverse to a few areas. Obviously, such a state of the metaverse is also unable to obtain long-term development.
Only when a strong metaverse ecology is built, the boundaries between different scenes and industries in the metaverse are broken, the high walls between different scenes and industries are pushed down, and a strong synergy between different applications in the metaverse is established, can the development of the metaverse truly enter a new stage of development. It is foreseeable that in the coming period, we will see the combination of different players and scenarios in the metaverse, taking this as the beginning to find new breakthroughs in the development of the metaverse, so that the development of the metaverse can truly enter a brand new stage of development.
What we saw between Meta and Microsoft is just a beginning. In the future, we will see more metaverse players continue to establish connections and form a huge ecology. When such a large ecology is formed, the metaverse is no longer an isolated existence, no longer a single existence, but becomes a mutually synergistic and interconnected existence. As a result, the development of the metaverse can truly enter a brand new stage of development.
The Metaverse Needs to Be Integrated with New Technologies
We have been talking about the metaverse as a being that encompasses many new technologies. In the metaverse, we see the figure of big data and cloud computing; we see the figure of virtual reality and artificial intelligence; we see the figure of blockchain and Internet of Things ...... In a word, the metaverse itself is a big collection of new technologies.
Yes, the metaverse is indeed an existence that encompasses many new technologies. This is the key reason why the metaverse is called metaverse. However, what we also need to see is that if the metaverse is just a hodgepodge of new technologies, if the metaverse is just a big basket of new technologies, then the so-called metaverse will never be able to play its maximum function and role. To change this status quo of the metaverse, what we must do is to realize the connection between new technologies and the integration of new technologies.
Only when these new technologies are integrated and connected, and only when these new technologies build the strong skeleton of the metaverse, the development of the metaverse can be free from the existence of a mere concept, and can really bring its development to a new stage.
In the author's opinion, the most crucial point to achieve the integration of new technologies is to find the "commonality" between these new technologies, to realize the bridge between different new technologies with such a "commonality", and to find the "common language" between different new technologies with such a "commonality". When "commonality" is found among new technologies, the so-called metaverse will not be an existence dominated by nebulous technologies, but an existence with dominant technologies as the base.
Just as we have experienced in the Internet era, the metaverse will become an existence dominated by such a "commonality" of technologies. At this time, the metaverse becomes not just a metaverse itself, but a new era named after the "commonality" of new technologies. At this time, the development of the metaverse can leave the nebulousness and truly enter a brand new era.
When the patience of capital is gone, the development of metaverse has left the impatience and frenzy, and truly entered into a relatively objective and rational development state. At such a stage, we can't just rely on concepts and gimmicks to develop, but need to find more new breakthroughs in the metaverse. Only when we find a new development model that matches the development of the metaverse, can the development of the metaverse truly leave the capital-driven development model and enter a brand new stage of development.
