"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"I don't think anyone understands NFTs. But, yes."
"No, and I'm scared to."
