The Global Metaverse Market: Valuing Property in the Next Frontier (We’re Not in Kansas Anymore)
Metaverse business success can really only happen with significantly more technological adoption, so any valuation of an individual metaverse business is at some level an underwriting of the technological adoption. In what areas may the metaverse be cannibalistic? In what areas may it be accretive to existing platforms/channels? Is the metaverse likely to be principally a business or personal environment, or both? What are the avenues for investment in the metaverse and determining valuation? It has recently been predicted that the metaverse economy could, in the aggregate, “generate up to $5 trillion in impact by 2030 — equivalent to the size of the third-largest economy today, Japan." Much of that impact is seen in e-commerce by far, with other market impacts in virtual learning, advertising and gaming. But how are the various “things” in the metaverse going to be valued? If you don’t know, or don’t know what the metaverse is or encompasses, this panel is for you.
