New Trend: Early Adoption and Market Growth
In 2021 and 2022 Corporate America saw many Fortune 500 companies like Meta, Microsoft, Alphabet and more begin to invest billions into Web 3.0 / Metaverse projects and domain rights. Additionally many of the same companies, as well as others, began to dabble with digital ownership in the form of NFTs. The current direction of business ventures is becoming more and more digital as the next generation of consumers and employees have grown up immersed in the digital world of gaming, social media and online transactions.
Fortune Business Insights wrote in 2021 the size of the worldwide Metaverse market was estimated at USD 63.83 billion. The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 47.6% from 2022 to 2029, rising from USD 100.27 billion in 2022 to USD 1,527.55 billion.
According to experts, Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will undoubtedly play a large part of digital ownership in the coming years of the Metaverse expansion. Already NFTs have generated over $17.6 Billion in total sales in 2021 with an expected growth rate of 200% year over year.
Benefits of digital adoption combine multiple areas of integrated opportunities.
The Metaverse will combine many areas of business from Marketing and Ads to real estate and retail, along with many more. Early adoption of business branded domains will parallel the importance of Web 2.0 website domain names.
NFTs offer digital ownership on blockchain technology, which have become increasingly more popular with the rise of microtransactions whose size is expected to grow from $59.49 Billion in 2021 to $67.60 Billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.6%.
Ownership of digital assets can be great company wide or individually to add to a portfolio of assets. If you’re looking for a unique gift this holiday season for employees or friends, an NFT may be something worth looking into.
New Insight: 2022 Gifts: NFTs are in; Ugly Sweaters are out
In today's economic climate it's not surprising that companies like Taco Bell and Burger King would offer NFTs to the public or as a rewards system with their ever growing popularity. Large retail based companies like Nike, Adidas, Sony and Chanel also offered NFTs to their clients representing the item or items they had purchased.
However many other companies have taken a different approach to utilizing the digital asset, using them as an employee gift. Last December, a Web 3.0 design company called Figment, gave all 130 employees custom NFTs for the holidays. Their goal was to both add a digit asset to their employees wallet as well as help expand their employees knowledge and awareness of the blockchain asset.
Following suit, ORAI, an artificial Intelligence company also gifted all its employees NFTs this past March as recognition for their hard work.
