the founder of Ethereum – Vitalik Buterin – discussed how the metaverse it could be, but pointed out that corporate projects for virtual worlds do not seem to be promising.
In a string of tweets, Buterin was especially critical of Goal (GOAL) – Big Tech founded and run by Mark Zuckerberg – referring to the company by its old name, Facebook.
According to Decrypt, the founder of Ethereum said that the attempt to metaverse de Meta will “fail”, as no one has been able to define what the term actually means.
“We don’t really know the definition of ‘metaverse‘ Still, it’s too early to know what people really want. So anything Facebook creates now will fail,” Buterin said in a tweet.
My critique is deeper than “Metaverse Wikipedia will beat Metaverse Encyclopedia Britannica”. It’s that we don’t really know the definition of “the metaverse” yet, it’s far too early to know what people actually want. So anything Facebook creates now will misfire.

The creator of the second largest cryptocurrency in the world was not convinced by the way companies imagine the metaversebut stated that the creation of these virtual worlds is an inevitable step towards current technology.
“O metaverse will happen,” added Buterin in another tweet. “But I do not believe that any of the existing attempts to intentionally create the metaverse will get somewhere.”

According to Decrypt, a group of companies from Web 3.0 met to set standards for the metaverseafter centralized companies such as Meta, Sony and Microsofthave joined in a separate agreement.
