People are now bored with web2.0 where they meet with their friends 2-dimensionally. Also, it has been a pretty long time for every one of us to live in the same universe. So, the metaverse is the new technological solution that takes the audience to a completely new world where they interact with each other and take part in various activities in virtual reality. Not only can you wander freely in the metaverse, but you can even buy lands, clothes, footwear, play games, take academic classes, and whatnot.
Talking about the key facts, $500 million worth of real estate has been purchased in the metaverse. At the same time, there is more than 400 million metaverse monthly active users around the world. Both well-established businesses, as well as new entrepreneurs are investing in metaverse due to its increasing popularity around the globe.
Let’s talk about some benefits of this new concept, what changes it has bought, and how it differs from traditional IT development.
Why Are Innovative Entrepreneurs Rushing Toward Metaverse Development?
Mark Zuckerberg is set to invest tens of billions of dollars in the metaverse every year. So, the concept can not be taken lightly when a personality who incepted connectivity in web 2.0 is showing so much belief in the metaverse. Due to same, businesses and entrepreneurs worldwide are keen to leverage the benefits of a metaverse in their operations. But what are these benefits which have struck the mind of these business people so heavily? Let’s know about these benefits-
|Achieve competitive advantage
|Metaverse is still at a stage where only a few entities are leveraging its benefits. So, integrating the metaverse concept into the business helps draw customer attention and achieve competitive advantages. When a business is provided the opportunity to experience the new universe, it becomes easy to attract customers and outperform competitors.
|Building a social network
|Metaverse allows entrepreneurs and business owners to create their own social platform where they enable users to interact with each other as well as build communities. This feature helps increase brand loyalty and customer engagement by fostering a sense of community.
|Virtual world monetization
|Businesses are meant to generate income by one or more streams. While traditional businesses generate income only via core operations, metaverse brings multiple additional income opportunities to the business. Having established a virtual world, a business owner can secure a good income via different strategies such as in-world advertisements, virtual currencies, and a range of other monetization methods.
|Moreover, metaverse integration in the business makes expansion easier for business owners. With this new concept, entrepreneurs can meet other people in the industry, connect to investor, and hold meetings which help them expand their boundaries.
|A virtual store
|Most businesses are moving online which is eliminating the need for a physical infrastructure or store. So, metaverse allows to construction a virtual store in metaverse. Customers can visit this store, check out the products, and can have a real-time experience.
Difference Between Metaverse Development and Traditional Development
We have been witnessing the use of web 2.0 for a long time which is also called traditional development. It is basically the process that aims at building software and applications. These outputs are accessible from various software and platforms including mobile phones, laptops, computers, tablets, web browsers, and more. Traditional development focuses on developing creative user interfaces and interactions that can be used by audiences via defined devices.
However, it has not been long since we started talking about metaverse or web 3.0. Unlike traditional development, metaverse development is the process that focuses on creating software and application to be used in a virtual environment better known as metaverse. The virtual space developed via metaverse development can also be accessed with different devices platform. Immersive and interactive experiences of metaverse are not limited by physical boundaries or device constraints.
Talking about the focus, traditional development aims at creating functional software which can meet the needs of users. On the other hand, metaverse development aims at developing virtual experiences that can be accessed by anyone from anywhere around the globe. While working for metaverse development, one utilizes 3D graphics, game engines, and other high-end tools which are not used primarily in traditional development.
How to Choose the Best Metaverse Development Company?
Long has been discussing the benefits of metaverse and why new-age business people are rushing toward the concept. But, the truth is that you can only leverage the benefits of metaverse in your business if you have a proficient metaverse development company. The number of metaverse development entities is fewer as compared to traditional IT companies and so, you need to be careful while choosing the one for you. The following tactics can help you do so:
1. Define your requirement
You select a development company according to your requirements. It is important that you place all your requirements and expectations from the project at the center while choosing the metaverse development company. It will help the developers to ensure that they can fulfill the requirements and meet the expectation or not. For example, if you are looking for a gaming development project with integration to the metaverse, the development partner must carry an experience in gaming app development first.
2. Look for Specialized Talent
The technological landscape is changing at a swift pace, and development partners ought to have the specialized talent to foster competitive advantages in the project. For instance, while working on a metaverse project, developers should have familiarity with working on blockchain, virtual reality, game engines like unreal or unity etc.
3. Go Through Their Portfolio
Evaluating the portfolio of the development partner is one of the best approaches to know about them. The portfolio is the mirror of any corporation and its achievements. Have a look at their previous projects and identify their experience of working on the metaverse projects.
4. Conduct Technical Interviews
Technical interview is the best way of knowing and evaluating the skills of the development team or individual. You can ask them about their experience on metaverse projects, what achievements they secured, what challenges they faced, and how they overcame the challenges. These types of questions will help you with something more than what they have included in their pitching document or resume.
When you are looking to work with a development team for months, their culture means a lot for the efficient outcome of the project. A project doesn’t only require technical knowledge but smooth communication, collaboration, and discipline, which contribute equally to the project’s success. Make sure the team you are hiring has these qualities.
Technological trends are changing every day. It has become more like a need and less like a choice for IT entities to keep themselves updated with the trend. Make sure the IT partner you are hiring is adaptable to new changes and loves to explore the new technologies ruling the market.
Core Characteristics of a Metaverse Project
As metaverse development is entirely different from that of traditional development, the metaverse project also differs from the traditional one. There are certain factors that are only observed in metaverse development projects. The following points will give you a better understanding of these factors:
Metaverse is a virtual world that continues to exist even when the users are not present in it. Persistence means that users keep visiting the virtual space one after another, make changes, and leave the world. At the same time, changes made by one user are also visible to another user. So, this virtual world keeps growing and developing.
Metaverse is highly interactive as it enables users to perform a lot of activities in the virtual world. It includes interacting with other users, exploring the digital environment, interacting with objects, communicating, and much more.
Metaverse project is one that delivers an immersive experience that feels real to the users. Components like realistic graphics, avatars, sound effects, wearable devices, and much more make this immersive experience possible for the audience.
4. User-Generated Content
Metaverse allows users to generate their content. Here content refers to buildings, objects, real estate, services, entertainment, and much more. This user-generated content helps foster collaboration and creativity among the users which makes the metaverse much more interesting to the target audience.
A metaverse project is meant to carry the capability of connecting to other metaverse projects that allows the exchange of assets and data. This interoperability is the main ground for developing a large and diverse virtual ecosystem.
Similar to our real universe, a metaverse also gives space to multiple users, their activities, their objects etc. So, it becomes necessary that the metaverse is scalable to fulfill the needs of all the users around the world.
There are some terminologies that make metaverse projects entirely different from traditional IT development projects. The terminologies are but not limited to
Core Features of A Metaverse Development Project
Metaverse is currently seen as decentralized, independent from the complete control of a single entity. Web 2.0, where the firm or person owns the content or platform, metaverse is going to be far away from this concept. Every user or visitor of metaverse will have the complete freedom to develop and own the content.
Metaverse is the new world where users are imagined to do a range of daily life practices like running, constructing, learning, playing, and much more. A metaverse is such a huge concept that hackers get a range of targets to attack. It includes cryptocurrency wallets, NFTs, passwords, user data, etc. In this scenario, security remains at the center of metaverse development projects.
3. Digital Currency
As we interpreted earlier, the metaverse is going to be a copy of the real world, and leveraging any product or service will require a certain type of currency. Undoubtedly, offline currency is of no use in this concept, so digital currency appears as the solution. Currently, digital currencies like NFTs and cryptocurrencies are being imagined at the place.
4. Analytics and Data Management
Metaverse doesn’t stop working even if one user stops using it or exits from it. So, a lot of data is continuously downloaded and uploaded while using the metaverse. In this landscape, terminologies like data portability, interoperability of data, ownership of data, engineering the raw data, etc, become mandatory in the development process.
5. 3D Virtual Space
Metaverse is all about 3D virtual space. While developing metaverse-related software, developers are working on developing a 3D virtual space that invites users to roam around, do the construction, and take part in various activities.
