Decentraland and Sandbox are Ethereum-based games where users can purchase virtual land plots for millions of dollars and can benefit massively if the metaverse expands in more ways than one predicted. Each can also be a takeover target for an established tech giant and rumors swirled as well. The co-founder and COO of The Sandbox Sebastian Borget said only, “nah.”
The stated goal of the Metaverse Standards Forum was announced on Tuesday and includes Sony and Alibaba and fostered the coordination and cooperation among hundreds of companies that work to establish themselves if the metaverse becomes bigger. Many in the Web3 community remained skeptical. Danny Green the general manager of the Meebits DAO said:
“At the end of the day, we’re fighting for a decentralized future and these are corporations that are representing shareholders.”
The founder and chairman of Animoca Brands Yat Siu, previously called META’s ambitions “digital colonialism.”
