Building the metaverse: Key considerations for investors - Matt Twigg

June 13, 2022

Today we’re thrilled to again feature Matt Twigg, senior manager and lead researcher at Fidelity Labs, based out of Tokyo, Japan. Matt again joins Colin Randall, Fidelity Canada Director of Research, for a discussion on the metaverse, focusing on key considerations for investors. Despite market volatility of late, companies continue to invest heavily in developing these new virtual worlds, including new social, economic, and governance structures within them. That leads to big questions such as who gets a say in how these worlds are created, how they should be governed, and how is the economic value produced and accessed? Matt and Colin look at these questions and more, including what key trends we should be watching for going forward, the concept of centralized vs. decentralized, digital identity, digital twins, and the economic implications of the metaverse. Matt and Colin’s first episode was released on May 30 if you’re interested in also listening to that one.
