According to Zuckerberg, virtual items trading tools will initially be available to a carefully selected group of users. They are mainly people who are teaching classes about metaversegamer NFT, virtual fashion business in Horizon Worlds. The experience of buying and selling virtual items will be done with Meta’s VR Quest glasses. In addition to buying and selling, these people can rent out their items in the virtual world.
