Meta, an American technology company owned by Mark Zuckerberg, recently announced that it is testing new tools. Thanks to them, the creators of Horizon Worlds will be able to earn money in the metaverse by selling their goods and services in virtual space.
Horizon Worlds in a virtual world
Meta announced some time ago that it is starting testing new tools that will give Horizon Worlds players the opportunity to earn from what they have created in virtual space. Mark Zuckerberg emphasized that these will be long-term activities that will provide the creators of metaverse with a chance for real earnings. One of the measures to achieve this goal is the $ 10 million Horizon Creators Fund, which was established in October last year.
At the moment, only a group of selected Horizon Worlds developers can use the tested tools, and thus start selling in metavers. For the time being, the recipients of the goods they offer will only be adult citizens of the United States and Canada.
Meta rewards the creators of metaverse
Sales in virtual space is not the only novelty announced by Mark Zuckerberg's company. Meta is also testing a special bonus program for Horizon Worlds developers based in the United States. Each month, they receive specific amounts for the goals they have achieved. Today, creators are rewarded for creating worlds that are most user-engaging.
As Zuckerberg himself stated, the metaverse space opens up completely new opportunities for creators, related to both the development of the business and the acquisition of new sources of income. The currency in which the salary will be paid has not yet been officially announced. It is known, however, that Meta is currently verifying "Zuck Bucks" - the virtual currency for the metaverse world.
Forecasts for the future
The metaverse space is gaining more and more interest. Therefore, it is not surprising that it becomes the subject of analyzes and forecasts for the future. Yield App CEO Tim Frost estimates that the metaverse will be worth $ 2024 trillion by 1. It is an area with enormous potential.
Frost also emphasizes that the metaverse space has a significant impact on other sectors, including on the gaming industry and the real estate market. It can be expected that soon every company operating digital assets will own real estate in the virtual world.
