Vitalik Buterin Says Facebook’s Metaverse Attempt Will Misfire

Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin believes that corporate attempts to build the metaverse will fail.

Buterin said this while responding to the views of Dean Eigenmann, who pointed out that “while the ideas on the metaverse concept make sense, he doesn’t think it’ll happen through Venture Capitalist funding.”

“I’d rather hang out in World of Warcraft than half of this “metaverse” crap,” Eigenmann added.

In response, Vitalik tweeted, “The “metaverse” is going to happen, but I don’t think any of the existing corporate attempts to intentionally create the metaverse are going anywhere.”

Presently, Facebook’s parent company Meta leads corporate interest in creating the metaverse after rebranding its whole business around the concept.

But Vitalik doesn’t think the move will be a success for the company. He mentioned the company stating, “Anything Facebook creates now will misfire.”
