Ethereum co-founder fears Meta’s Metaverse plan may fail

Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of blockchain Ethereum, believes that companies’ attempts to build a metaverse may fail. He added that there is no clear definition of the metaverse yet and that it is too early to predict what consumers will like.

Buterin said in response to a tweet, “Anything created by Facebook will fail.” He said companies trying to build the metaverse are less likely to succeed. Earlier, Buterin had not given any assessment about the Metaverse. He frequently talks about Ethereum’s technology and the impact of decentralization via Twitter and blogs. He believes that the companies’ efforts to create the metaverse will yield no results. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg rebranded his company as Meta last year. Along with this he metaverse Big plans were indicated in the segment.

However, his attempt has met with a major setback. Meta’s Metaverse division has once again suffered heavy losses in the second quarter of this year. Zuckerberg had said in the announcement of quarterly results that this division, called Facebook Reality Labs (FRL), will be Harm approximately $2.81 billion. It generated revenue of $452 million, which is about 35 percent less than the previous quarter.

Despite this, Zuckerberg is confident that Metaverse technology will benefit the company in the coming years. “It will cost a lot for the next several years. I’m sure we’ll play an important role in building this as the use of the Metaverse grows,” he said. FRL has been assigned the responsibility of developing hardware, software and content to fulfill the company’s plan to become a major force in the metaverse. For this, this division is hiring tech workers from big companies like Apple and Microsoft. These especially include people associated with Augmented Reality (AR). Recently, the government of South Korea announced an investment of $ 177 million to finance the Metaverse projects. South Korea is one of the earliest countries to invest in the metaverse industry.
