Smaller than the universe, but astronomical in its impact on humanity, the word ‘metaverse’ defines the intersection of human interaction with revolutionary emerging technologies. Video games, VR, avatars, NFTs, and AR are a few of the many things under its umbrella. Now, there’s a new, and largely unexpected addition to the metaverse: pets.
The metaverse’s reported market value in 2020 totaled $47.69 billion with a 43.3% compound annual growth rate. A whopping 45% of this market revenue was produced by North America alone. Financially, numbers are high for the metaverse, and its profitability will only keep growing.
With the introduction of metapets and metaverse pets, the metaverse is receiving the love we cherish from our furry friends. Platforms MetaPets, MetaLachi, Axie Infinity, and CryptoKitties are pioneering the new niche. Through them, you can monitor your own chipped pet remotely (as represented by an avatar), experience pet ownership with a virtual pet, and enjoy the company and camaraderie of a pet through the capabilities of holographic and 3D imaging technologies.
Many seek humanity through the screens of our metaverse; especially since the global Coronavirus pandemic. Tap into the future of the metaverse by discovering your own metapet, and savor the joy and gratification of holding them close.
