More insight into Meta’s plan to enter the Metaverse
Mark is entirely relying on his big-time venture to enter the Metaverse. He plans to invest no less than $10 billion to modify the internet and enhance users’ experience in the upcoming years.
The Metaverse Standard Forum is formed by the association of more than 37 multinational tech giants, including Sony, Microsoft, Meta, and Epic Games. The main aim of this forum is to ensure interoperability and cooperation among the organizations to establish the decentralized Metaverse.
Apple is not yet included in the Metaverse Forum, and Zuckerberg is not sure whether the operations to be conducted here will be close-ended or open-ended. The CEO of Meta has also warned his employees to gear up for an intense situation that might result from the war between the two tech giants.
