Metaverse - an absurd expectation or endless possibilities?
Recognized as the ultimate form of the Internet, the metaverse depicts an attractive future. People can break the limits of the physical world and create a boundless, everlasting and colorful digital world through the ultimate bionic interactive experience.
“Human society will be mapped and reconstructed in the metaverse. People will migrate their work, life and entertainment to the metaverse and create a new civilization.”
In the metaverse, people can experience any aspired life, play any role and create any world they envision. The metaverse is believed to be something that should never be manipulated or shut down by any institution or individual. People’s digital assets truly belong to themselves and no one can tamper with or take them away.
But, with reaching such technological breakthroughs the industry must prepare it self with the best tools available. The mere processing speed of present processing units, networking capabilities and display options all pose as a hindrance to the enrichment of metaverse expansion.
With the continuous breakthroughs in the underlying technologies such as blockchain, VR/AR and network transmission, people are more convinced that the day will surely come.
However, the decentralization of application, as the core requirement to ensure the eternal life, free creation and security of the metaverse, is still not fully implemented.
“The servers holding you’re precious assets are not totally secured. Malicious practices by the project owner, DDoS attacks and brute force attacks can change or destroy those servers at will.”
Present solutions provided by the industry can support the decentralized economy part of DApps, but can’t support the large-scale and complex server side computations. So almost all applications such as logical computation, data storage and image rendering are centrally processed to control the distribution of the digital assets on the blockchain. If this trend continues, the whole metaverse will be controlled by a minority of people, and all users will be the captive lambs in the virtual world.
A real metaverse must achieve the full decentralization of large-scale applications — tokens and server codes both needs to be secured by blockchain . For this reason, we built Ethanim.
