Metaverse & the Consumer

Interview with Yonatan Raz-Fridman, Founder and CEO, Supersocial

Yonatan Raz-Fridman, CEO/Founder, Supersocial is building games/experiences for the Metaverse which by 2030, in his view, could be worth $10 trillion and accessed by 80% of the humans and their 100bn virtual avatars. Yonatan describes the Metaverse as a device-agnostic, real-time, persistent, large-scale 3D immersive experience and for it to truly emerge it has to be open and interoperable. In the next decade, we will witness proliferation in the development and adoption of other Metaverse hardware devices e.g. AR/VR, PC/Console; but smartphones will continue to dominate as an interface layer for the Metaverse. However, for an inclusive and equitable next generation internet there has to be accelerated infrastructure development and access enablement (5G, devices, etc.) in developing economies as well.
