How to define Metaverse
Three levels to understand the concept of Metaverse
Everyone is talking about the Metaverse, but what exactly is the Metaverse? I think it can be understood from three levels.
First of all, basic understanding, don’t get too hung up on this name, Metaverse put it plainly, it is “the next generation of Internet”. For the understanding of the next-generation Internet, many people think that it is the Internet of Things, and some people say that it is the blockchain, high-speed mobile Internet, AI, AR/VR, etc. All in all, adding all of these together is the next-generation Internet.
When we discuss what is Metaverse’s technology, what is Metaverse’s black technology, and what is Metaverse’s subversive development, the most basic level can actually be anatomically understood from the technical perspectives just mentioned.
Secondly, the advanced version understands that the Metaverse can be considered as the evolution of the human state of existence. Human society is in a stage of gradually migrating from a physical state of existence to a digital state of existence. Xiao Feng proposed this concept for the first time.
Then the key is that after such a migration, the boundaries of countries, races, companies, platforms, etc. will inevitably be blurred. There will be more and more people without borders, so cross-border and cross-platform cooperation will become more common and efficient, and the cost will be lower.

Conversely, investing and starting a business in Metaverse is too rigid about a certain country or a certain platform, and that is definitely not the direction of Metaverse’s business.
Finally, the advanced version understands, from the perspective of biological evolution, that the Metaverse is a new stage of human collaboration.
From a technical point of view, the era of PC Internet (WEB1.0) and mobile Internet (WEB2.0) mainly solves the problem of high-speed and free flow of information, while Metaverse, or WEB3.0, its core is the high-speed and free flow of information In addition, the high-speed free flow of value is added.
The high-speed and free flow of value has a lot of functional expansion and display forms. For example, what we have seen so far is the emergence of the Token incentive mechanism. It is precisely because of the high-speed and free flow of value that in the world of Metaverse, the infrastructure of all business forms has its own financial functions.
On this basis, DAO (Decentralized Distributed Autonomous Organization, Distributed/Decentralized Autonomous Organization), a new post-corporatized economic organization form of decentralized cooperation and shared value, was born
The “free flow of value” brought by WEB3.0, we don’t know what it will be like and what direction it will develop in the end. At present, we can only see these two directions at a preliminary level.
More importantly, it is necessary to look at the problem from the perspective of the evolutionary history of human civilization. The free flow of value can actually enable people and things that are far away, without trust and social relations, to interconnect and collaborate in a low-cost, remote, and real-time manner, and continue to accomplish something big.
In the process of evolution, the reason why human beings can overcome other creatures and finally stand out is the most important thing is our awareness, ability and system to cooperate with each other. The Metaverse actually creates a new level of human interaction system.
From the perspective of an alien planet, the Metaverse is equivalent to uniting seven or eight billion human individuals on the earth and turning it into a super “earth human” giant . This giant has its own brain and goal orientation, character, and good environmental responsiveness.
