Join our Telegram channel to keep abreast of the main trends of the crypto market According to published data, about 10% of Britons are not interested in the metaverse. Another 20% doubt the metaverse will ever become popular. Despite being skeptical of the metaverse, just over 40% of respondents said they did not understand the meaning of the concept of virtual worlds at all.. Only 37% of respondents know about the metaverse. For example, in China, the mood is completely different: there, over 80% want to try the metaverse (in the UK, only 37% agree on this). Moreover, it is in China that most of all believe that the metaverse will change their lives. Source: gowlingwlg.com According to Gowling WLG analysts, such a high interest in virtual worlds in China is due to the coronavirus pandemic. The interest of the Chinese in new technologies may be due to the fact that many have begun to use video conferencing platforms to contact at work amid the covid crackdown.. At the same time, Gowling WLG experts believe that the skepticism of the British is good for business, since the market is still available for monetization.
