Content creation market
The metaverse will radically change the market of the content creation. With Web2, content (text, video, etc.) has become accessible and easy to do for everyone, so much so that creators have become opinion leaders, influencers. The content creation market is estimated to be worth $104 billion by 2021.
With Web3 and metavers, content will also be at the centre of the discussions. In 2020, for example, the "GDP" of the game Second Life was $650 million, of which $80 million was generated by content creators.
