Internet culture is culture. Everyone is online and spending most of their lives there. You can even argue the metaverse has been here, not just with obvious examples, like World of Warcraft and Fortnight, but even Instagram. There are people already buying assets, they're buying the Louis Vuitton purse, to take a photo of to impress a bunch of digital people with their digital asset, which just happens to be a photo of them wearing the purse, that 99.999% of people will never actually see them with. So, the metaverse is here; it's just not evenly distributed.
