Dear avatars,

Does the Metaverse need blockchain to ensure widespread adoption?
Not only did Cointelegraph ask, we asked too and almost three-quarters on Linkedin and two-thirds on Twitter rely on blockchain as the premise of the Metaverse.
Virtual Worlds?

The largest virtual worlds are mainly used by kids and teens; CAU (Concurrent Active Users): Roblox (5M+), Fortnite (3M+), Minecraft (2M+). In which of these are you most active?
It is mainly the adult worlds where you hang out. However, on Linkedin quite closely followed by Roblox, while on Twitter there was a tie for second place between Roblox and Minecraft. Fortnite - so far - does not play a major role.
Apropos, which of the big virtual worlds, or more precisely: adult worlds, is your favourite? What exactly do you like best about your favourite? Please respond on Twitter or LinkedIn - and feel free to comment on the virtual worlds you miss.
BTW: How is Meta doing?
