Insightful! Thank you for sharing.

As "no pants" Horizon Worlds has already demonstrated, it seems like the more people try to develop Metaverse Worlds & Technologies, the better Second Life looks!

Hmm... maybe the idea with Horizon Worlds is that they're creating Avatars who can do Zoom? Hence no need for pants/legs??

I wasn't familiar with Richard Bartle. Sounds like a good guy. Perhaps I should read his book.

Anything they want to do with a blockchain in games, can be done without one. Where is the actual use you NEED blockchain tech for?

Transferring items between games? you’ve already been able to do that, its rare because new games built on old ones tend to have power creep, but its been done. Phantasy star online 2 new genesis did it, a lot of old portable console games did it between sequels, heck even pokemon lets you bring pokemon across game generations.

Trading items between players for real money? Hello, selling hats on the steam marketplace, no blockchain required.

Play to earn? The phillipines runescape boom showed how exploitative and unethical that shit was. And still no blockchain tech was required there.

It really is a religious belief at this point, no amount of disproving claims will convince them. Its like one of the more culty MLM corporate cultures or one of the more culty scams like Nesara and qanon.

I was raised in an actual cult, I can spot the behaviours, the remaining crypto bros display a lot of them at this point.
