Meta Begins Testing ‘Tools’ for Metaverse ‘Digital Asset’ Sales

‘Tools’ for Metaverse ‘Digital Asset’ Sales

Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, may have turned its back on its once-grand stablecoin plans, but it is far from done with digital forms of money – with its metaverse pivot leading it to create “tools” that will let its users sell “digital assets” such as tokens, crypto-currencies, and even physical goods in an online marketplace called Metaverse.

The tech firm was founded by Peter Diamandis in 2014 as part of his own interest in decentralized finance (DeFi). It has been a long-time effort, though, for Metaverse users to try things out on what it calls its platform – which offers some 2.8 billion coins and token holders around 1,400 types of tokens ranging from the classic Ether and Monero to newer projects such as Polkadot and Tanglecoin. This year alone, more than $1.6 trillion was locked up on the metaverse via these transactions, although this number is expected to rise as other currencies start trading on the platform.

“tools” are meant to allow customers to

These “tools” are meant to allow customers to “sell” their crypto assets (and possibly earn crypto as collateral) through virtual credit cards or cryptocurrency wallets; make new purchases in the same way using the card to pay; trade traditional financial instruments, including stocks, bonds, futures, commodities and cryptocurrency; play interactive games with others who can take advantage of the same trading opportunities; set price targets and set limits on how much they want to bid and offer, all to encourage them to invest time in the market.

How much they want to bid and offer

And while some will be more popular than others, when you think about it, most people would agree that there are many good use cases, not least because it could help alleviate any shortages or price shocks faced by buyers and sellers in the marketplace. One theory suggests that one way investors might benefit from being able to sell their crypto holdings on and off is simply through offering some cashback if they want to sell their digital assets at a higher price. This idea has come under fire from both sides of the blockchain spectrum in recent weeks, however, especially after Elon Musk suggested he’d like to see crypto currency become legal tender.

The future of crypto is an economy based on trust

“The future of crypto is an economy based on trust and value not government control, and every coin sold or asset used should only ever be created by people who are willing to give up some portion of their personal wealth and risk getting killed by somebody else’s decision on whether or not to do so. This is a basic principle of economics,” says Benzinga founder David Marcus. In short, he believes this concept applies to the realm of crypto as well: There are many cryptocurrencies/tokens/crypto assets that were created for various reasons. They’re not necessarily worth the paper they are printed on – they have a strong reputation around the world due to the fact most are backed by real world assets.

Protect against inflation or sudden loss

 

This helps to protect against inflation or sudden loss of value, both of which are key factors for holding crypto over the longer term. He adds that this principle also applies to other industries such as food or clothing, where consumers can turn their backs on profit-maximizing businesses that don’t share the risk-reward model of buying stuff through retailers that buy stock on Amazon.

Economist talking about crypto

When we hear an economist talking about crypto as a bubble and a “foolish bubble” type of thing, I think this is something that should be taught to young generation, because it is going to be the biggest and best disruption in history. Many of the ideas behind crypto, like decentralization, can apply to almost all kinds of markets and products with little to no overlap or distinction between different ones, since our values are completely separate from anything that came before it. If there is a point where some industries and markets are heading toward becoming similar enough that their values begin to resemble ours, then that is exactly what is coming up. Now, some of the big players in these industries might try to argue that they are not trying to copy anyone, but instead just helping to create better products. But they can never really claim that because they never invented Bitcoin or Ethereum.
