Interesting times ahead for Meta!
Meta’s announcement about NFT comes at an interesting juncture for the company. Since the company was in little bit of stress due to the decline in the revenue in the first quarter, and an added pressure due to the rolling back tests of Tik-Tok features. To divert its stress to a more niche market, where Meta has not been before, Digital Collectibles was targeted.
It is also tipped that, if Mark Zuckerberg’s company is successful in creating a successful metaverse and virtual reality space, then the prices of these digital collectibles is expected to rise ten folds in the market.
Meta’s digital invasion is not new for anyone, who is a user of social media. Now, Meta’s vision is certainly on the digital asset industry. Monopolizing the asset industry might not sound appropriate in the current situation, and also being a volatile market, monopolistic approach might be more harmful for the investors and players surrounding the market. It is surely interesting times for Meta and also for the digital asset industry.
