Metaverses in Web3 Might Be “1 or 10” Years Away: Seasoned Investor
Metaverses: Infrastructure, experience layer, value-add layer
According to his post, Metaverses are models of digital virtual worlds that the users own through cryptos or non-fungible tokens.
Start-ups that he discussed fall into three categories: infrastructure, experience layer, and value-added layer (guilds, studios, marketplaces).
As a whole, “Metaverses” look like MMORPGs with blockchain aspects. According to Mr. Choi, this is similar to the diversity of L1s in 2017.

He is confident that Metaverse’s most impressive products are yet to come. Metaverse’s developers should take a cue from Facebook by considering their approaches.

The idea could take 1, or 5, or 10 years.
