No matter what value the metauniverse will develop in the future, the function value is identical to web 3 0

Metauniverse, which is commonly discussed in the streets in 2021, is most famous for roblox listing and meta renaming. Therefore, it has passed the basic style and values of "the first generation of metauniverse" - a 3D immersive virtual world with direct sensory experience as the core feature to hundreds of millions or even billions of people around the world, occupying the early development opportunity and "successful upper position". In just one year, the global industry, capital and financial markets have undergone earth shaking logical changes: countless Internet companies have transformed into meta universe platforms; Big capital crazy layout of early seeds; The concept dividend is used incisively and vividly in the stock market and encryption market. 2021 not only opens the prelude to the concept of the meta universe, but also opens the door to the wealth effect of the meta universe. Its fast connection makes countless new technology concepts hyped before catch up with it. It seems that all these indicate that the meta universe will be an unprecedented information technology change.

Change, first of all, originates from concepts. Judging whether a concept can eventually become a change requires its continuous hype cycle, which is constantly enlarged round by round. Obviously, metauniverse is still in the first cycle. This round makes almost the global Internet industry start to think about whether to introduce the development strategy of metauniverse, just like cloud computing in that year. The development of information technology is most afraid of stagnation due to boundary. Just as in recent years, industry and capital are hysterically looking for air outlets and trying to introduce negative entropy. Without air outlets, they also create some illusory ones. It is not taboo to say that the meta universe or metaverse also comes from this. At first, people only used the meta universe within the game boundaries such as roblox, so that the open game system can obtain greater valuation and future development space. But then it "went out of the circle": social platforms think they also need the virtual world to change people's interaction; Industrial production activities need to build a digital twin to speed up output; Entertainment activities are no longer satisfied with the traditional two-dimensional Internet interface; All mankind's yearning for the future of cyberpunk has been strengthened... After the meta universe came out of the game circle, it has become an "intersection collection" shared by other boundaries, which has gathered all the major circles of the Internet at one time. With vigour and vitality, we are not going to talk about the usefulness of the yuan universe to them. Obviously, it also depends on the future practice of their own practitioners. Perhaps walking along, some areas will automatically withdraw from the yuan universe. As the vigorous Internet plus and block chain + argument will be, it will not be suitable for all the "contestants". But for competitive athletes, it is important to cultivate their internal skills day after day, but the world-class track under the spotlight is a scarce dream. Whether it is the champion or the eighth, they will try their best to have a try.

At the current stage, metauniverse is more like a product launched by major Internet companies. There is no clear infrastructure, no solid development and evolution path, and no imaginative ecosystem prototype. Many of them just make a 3D virtual activity space and suddenly stop and fall into confusion. Roblox goes further and further in the metaverse defined by itself, completely does not care about the ideas of other families, and can do well in its own game world. Therefore, the meta universe cannot just stay in the "3D presentation layer", otherwise it is the same as making a template. It must go deeper into its logical core and further abstract it into an idea, a protocol and a more universal infrastructure. Just as the Internet originated from TCP / IP protocol, the meta universe urgently needs a "protocol origin". Since then, the meta universe seems to have become Abstract again.

If the meta universe is positioned to build a 3D world, its protocol basis should be based on graphics, such as how to make the illusion engine more revolutionary, but this vision is still "small" after all. Even if it is imagined in avalanche, the times are progressing and so are ideas; If it aims to build a virtual life, it seems that it should turn itself into a "hodgepodge", from social networking to office, from documents to videos, which is not cool enough; If you are bold, raise the meta universe to a level with the entire Internet infrastructure - in fact, after decades of development, the Internet has almost equal to the real world (real universe), and people's real life is almost centered on the Internet. The "meta" of the meta universe is not so much beyond the real universe as the Internet, Therefore, people will hear the cry of "next generation Internet". The real spiritual sustenance of the meta universe lies in "next generation Internet", also known as Web3 0

First of all, we should know that today's mature paradigm of the Internet is called web2 0. As early as 2006, Jeffrey Zeldman, the king of World Wide Web standards and a veteran pioneer of web design, realized web2 Although the Internet under 0 architecture has very high link efficiency, especially in establishing human-to-human interaction, it is also easy to breed Internet business oligarchs and can not really give users the value of the Internet. Taking this as the core argument, he first proposed a more ideal Internet Architecture - Web3 0 Unfortunately, subject to the limited practice of that era, he failed to give a feasible architecture scheme until the successful practice of bitcoin in 2009 brought the epoch-making technology paradigm of blockchain.

Up to now, in more than ten years, blockchain has developed decentralized networks such as bitcoin and Ethereum, also known as "world computer", and iteratively prospered a large-scale and rich variety of protocol market, application market and money market. It has completely formed its own system from the bottom currency and system to the service and life of the top, It is an all inclusive virtual social system. The interaction between people, the logic of building applications on them, and the value feedback system after the application appear to be completely different from the traditional Internet architecture. For example, in this decentralized network, people trust each other and activities are anti censorship, so it is more convenient to transfer money (or money) and other materials, not just information; Moreover, there is no company in the above business form. The most powerful one must be the agreement, decentralized agreement. The agreement generates value and the value returns to all participating users. In short, the new generation network with blockchain as the underlying architecture completely gets rid of the definition of business logic in the traditional Internet.

In the past decade, subject to the limited development of blockchain technology and ecology, although people imagined how to reproduce all applications or company forms of the Internet based on this world computer, most of them ended in failure, such as the large-scale computing power, efficient link ability and convenient service experience that are difficult to replace the Internet. Until 2020, people were surprised to find that "decentralized finance" (called defi in the industry) was really implemented on the decentralized network. It was also the first time that Ethereum and other computers in the world realized the implementation of major applications, giving birth to a market worth hundreds of billions of dollars, although mainly pure financial applications; The evolution path that people have been pursuing for ten years seems to have appeared. Then in 2021, the decentralized network completely broke away from the constraints of the financial application boundary, extended to the real world and real things, and brought the outbreak of NFT ecology. Around NFT, more and more people outside the circle can carry out cooperation, creation, development, governance, production, communication and other activities in the decentralized network, and further begin to give birth to Dao (decentralized autonomous form), social networking, virtual world and other application forms more similar to the current Internet. In this great process further from the dream, "world computers" are no longer confined to the singleness and lack of blockchain technology in the past, but pay more attention to how to build a better service experience, such as the most famous feature - "connect wallet". It can be said that today's decentralized network has officially challenged the traditional Internet architecture, and the declaration is "we are Web 3.0"!

Web3. 0 storm officially blew from the encrypted world to the mainstream world. It was a wonderful speech made by Brian Brooks at the U.S. Congress. It can be said to be a propaganda to the world - Web3 0 is a movement around the ownership of network. In 2006, although people yearned for a better Internet, they couldn't give a solution, but it was a castle in the air. Today, Brian Brooks told the world that the former vision could be realized through blockchain (World Computer), and elaborated on the token driven network value transmission law taking Ethereum as an example - network ownership is in the hands of all users holding tokens. Think further, Web 2 0 has TCP / IP, HTTP, SMTP, Linux, etc. Web3 0 mainly promotes the tools of equal rights movements such as blockchain, protocols and smart contract. At the bottom, the noble mission of human pursuit of openness, freedom and equality has not changed. The greatest significance of the era's backtracking lies in how to give the bottom layer the maximum value to realize. Only by making the bottom layer obtain the maximum value, any commercialization form on it (such as the criticized Internet application fence garden) will not turn back and monopolize the values of the whole network. In web2 0. The bottom layer is the most difficult to obtain value maximization. Without value maximization, there is no maximum value. The endorsement of the whole network is monopolized by the upper commercial trust; And Web3 0, a value maximization movement from the bottom, which outputs unshakable value remodeling logic.

So in this sense, Web3 0 has become a banner of the times, its mission is also very clear, and it no longer stays in slogans and ideas like in the past. It has a solid underlying architecture, is a protocol, and has a preliminary application landing. It has been proved that it can build an ecosystem that can be comparable to the prosperity and diversity of the Internet.

Finally, we return to the perspective of the meta universe. It seems that the surface meaning of the title of the meta universe is not so important. The meta universe is no longer the "metaverse" in the avalanche or the "meta" in the Internet world. The meta universe is more like the opening of a new era, and the core of this new era is made up of more concrete web 3 0 to host, and it has really come.
