Apple’s mixed reality headset poised to trigger surge in metaverse token values

A developer has claimed that Apple’s mixed reality headset could cause metaverse-related tokens to rise in value. Udi Wertheimer, a blockchain developer, tweeted, “Metaverse s—coins are going to pump so hard it’s not even funny.”

“Apple is about to launch a mixed reality headset in three weeks. Metaverse s—coins are going to pump so hard it’s not even funny,” Udi Wertheimer claimed in a tweet.

Wertheimer is not the first to predict that the arrival of Apple’s mixed reality headset could boost the metaverse market. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo have said that they expect the headset to be a major driver for metaverse adoption.

The metaverse is a virtual world that is built on decentralized blockchain networks. It allows people to exist in a parallel world where they can meet, work, party, and play as digital avatars. The market opportunity for the metaverse is estimated to reach $800 billion over the next two years.

There are currently over 237 cryptocurrencies listed as “metaverse tokens.” These altcoins allow metaverse users to make in-game purchases and engage in trading. However, it is important to note that this is a situation that could be exploited by scammers or hackers to fish for unsuspecting victims with malicious metaverse projects or rug-pull schemes.

Metaverse technology is the latest entrant to the online gaming ecosystem

Metaverse technology is the latest entrant to the online gaming ecosystem. It could benefit from development in the MR, Virtual Reality (VR), and Augmented Reality (AR) sectors.

At present, some popular brands working on metaverse offerings include Decentraland and The Sandbox, both of which offer native crypto tokens — MANA and SAND, respectively.

Other tech firms are also developing metaverse technology

Other tech firms have also been working on developing metaverse technology, including Facebook’s parent firm Meta. In 2021, Mark Zuckerberg rebranded his social networking company Facebook to a more metaverse-centric name, Meta.

Despite Zuckerberg’s claim that the technology would be mainstream in five to 10 years, Meta’s Reality Labs unit recorded its largest quarterly loss of $4.3 billion between September and December last year. The company recently cut the prices of its Meta Quest Pro and Quest 2 headsets in select regions after it faced a drop in revenue at the Reality Labs unit.

The arrival of Apple’s mixed reality headset could be a big boost for the metaverse market. However, it is important to be aware of the risks associated with this technology, such as scams and hacks.
