Developing countries like the metaverse but rich countries don’t
This is the result of a survey about the level of excitement about the metaverse by the World Economic Forum (WEF).
Accordingly, a survey conducted by WEF shows that people in developing countries are interested in new technologies such as virtual space (metaverse), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) than people in high-income countries.
Survey results of more than 21,000 adults in 29 countries show that, 52% of them are familiar with the concept of the metaverse. 50% of respondents have positive feelings about the applicability of the metaverse in daily life.

Even in a report conducted by the Gemini exchange, half of the respondents in India, Brazil and the Asia-Pacific region said they have owned their first cryptocurrency in a while. year 2021.
