➡️ Summary

📍 NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, became a popular topic in 2021's digital world, comprising digital music, trading cards, digital art, and photographs of animals. The world's most expensive NFT, "First 5000 Days" by Beeple, which cost 69 million US dollars, made news in March 2021.

📍 The number of "NFT" searches on Google increased as a result of this transaction, creating a "NFT fever." Based on an examination of the volume of Google searches for the term "NFT," Statista found that China is the nation with the greatest interest in NFTs.

📍 China is followed in terms of search volume by Singapore, Venezuela, and Hong Kong. China's interest in NFTs comes as no surprise NonFungible estimates that the market for NFTs would be worth over USD 15 billion in 2021, up 229 times (22,851%) from USD 67 million the year before. The 20- foldgrowth in NFT accounts—which rose from86,740 in 2020 to 1,976,256 the followingyear— reflects this astounding increase in interest.

📍 According to NonFungible, the market for NFTs was worth more than USD 15 billion in 2021, increasing 229-fold (22,851%) from USD 67 million the previous year. This incredible spike in interest is mirrored in the 20-fold increase in NFT accounts, which increased from 86,740 in 2020 to 1,976,256 just a year later.

📍 Digital tokens, however, are not brand-new. One of the first NFTs, CryptoKitties, a product that integrates randomly generated cat images, started selling in 2017. The use cases included show how NFTs work and how they will affect specific industries.

METAVERSE

  • " What do consulting companies say about the metaverse?
    Here is my master list of the best 15 reports of 2022.
    Which one is your favorite? Which one is missing?

    To me the reports help to get a feeling on the business of the projected market.
    If you really want to understand what is behind it, go "down the rabbit hole" and experience VR, connect with communities on discord & look into crypto.
    When you feel ready, try NFTs (but don´t invest much money, collect and learn first).

    If you are a marketing person, I suggest following people like Justin Peyton, Diego Borgo ᵍᵐ, Cathy Hackl, Jürgen Alker, Louis Schulze & Tibor Mérey, Oliver Scherenberg..." - Tim Walther

METAVERSE

  • The Top 5 Metaverse Trends In 2023 ⭐️

    ✅ Metaverse as a New Marketing Channel

    📍As with search engines and social media (the technological enablers of web 1.0 and 2.0), marketing and advertising will provide the fuel that will boost web 3.0 - the metaverse - into the mainstream.

    📍 The concept may not have completely coalesced yet, but businesses from giants of international finance like HSBC and JP Morgan to global lifestyle and fashion powers like Nike and Gucci have already staked their claim and begun building their metaverse presence. 

    ✅ The Corporate Metaverse

    📍 Aside from its power as a marketing tool, the metaverse promises to provide platforms, tools, and entire virtual worlds where business can be done remotely, efficiently, and intelligently.

    📍 We can expect to see the metaverse concept merge with the idea of the “digital twin” – virtual simulations of real-world products, processes, or operations that can be used to test and prototype new ideas in the safe environment of the digital domain.

    ✅ Web3 and Decentralization

    📍 One vision of the shape that the metaverse will eventually take revolves around decentralization.

    📍 According to the proponents of web3, distributed ledgers and blockchain technology will give rise to a new internet outside of the control of global corporations, which will no longer hold the power to censor opinions they don’t agree with or pull the plug if they want to take someone offline entirely.

    ✅ Virtual and Augmented Reality

    📍 The idea of immersive, experiential technology is central to the metaverse – whatever it ends up looking like, it will be more engaging than the digital worlds we are used to today (such as Facebook or the World Wide Web).

    📍 Therefore, many ideas of how we will interact with it involve immersive technology such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed/extender reality (MR/XR).

    ✅ More Advanced Avatar Technology

    📍 Many ideas of what the metaverse will involve us adopting avatars that represent us in the digital world.

    📍 Just as we are used to playing characters in video games or expressing our persona in social media, the avatar is the presence that we project as we engage and interact with other users – they might look like us, or like cartoon characters, or like something completely fantastic that could never exist in the real world.
