The metaverse is taking off, and it very much looks like it’s here to stay.
The metaverse market size is currently sitting at a pretty 47.48 billion US dollars, and it is expected to surge to 678.8 billion US dollars by 2030. This means there is no time like now to figure out how you can get involved, stay ahead of the curve, and get your slice of the pie by the time 2030 comes around.
