Q&A's

Does Gen Z actually care about the metaverse?

Social

"Of course, it’s the future. And any brand that doesn’t have a CMO (chief metaverse officer) within the next 5-10 years, will fall behind. But I will say that I don’t want the virtual world to completely supplant IRL. Like Sean Monahan said: “URL [should] serve IRL—not replace it.” I like going to concerts, bars, sports games, even the office. I don’t really have interest in doing that through a screen. I think the answer to this question probably depends when you were born on the Gen Z spectrum. If you’re a “Zillennial,” I think you don’t care that much (as in, are not on Minecraft all day), but if you’re on the younger end, I think you’ll spend far more time in the Metaverse."

"I think most of us (outside of marketing) don’t really know what the 'metaverse' is even though we use a version of it on Fortnite, Roblox and even Minecraft. I think over the next few years, as it expands and brands start to stake their claim in the space, it’ll start to take shape more and I believe more POVs will begin to form. As of now, the term is mostly associated with gamer culture, which has gone from being a fringe activity to mainstream."

"I do and I don’t. As someone relatively new to gaming and internet 'discourse,' I think it’s an interesting time to be a part of virtual communities and networks. But I’m not an early adopter on most things, and the metaverse is no different. I feel like I’m going to take this early stage a bit passively—read some articles, maybe buy some Bitcoin—and see where I get."

What’re your thoughts on wearable technology?

"I’m not into it. I’m also someone who is very wary about data collection. But I do like my airpods if we’re counting those."

"Don’t care."

"Seems unnecessary? I can’t even be bothered to wear my Apple Watch most days."

"If it’s practical and makes what I do everyday easier (and doesn’t look ugly) then yeahhh I’m about it."

Do you use Robinhood or any other trading platform?

"I do! I use Robinhood, but I should probably use coinbase too.."

"I used to use Robinhood but moved all of my investing to Charles Schwab, since they have a partnership with my bank and it’s easy to consolidate/manage."

"I used to! Prior to the GameStop debacle."

"I tried, but now it’s just sitting there on my homescreen."

Does Gen Z understand NFTs?

"I don't think anyone understands NFTs. But, yes."

"Absolutely not"

"No, and I'm scared to."
