Benefits of investing in the metaverse

Alejandro Paltas , Director of Open Programs at isdi Mexico, assures that when it comes to investing in technology, there is no bad way to carry out this exercise.

“Returns have always been exponential in technology, not only in a technological context, but also social, cultural, and so on. If perhaps we had asked ourselves this same question 22 years ago, during the internet boom, when these big ones fell, it was believed that it was absurd to make those investments, but at that time some invested and today we have monsters like Google, Facebook, Amazon, there is a lot of investment, not as much as it should, but we will most likely see innovations in technology. And to those who bet on the metaverse and not only on it, there are six technologies behind it, which are having an impact, the universe of possibilities is enormous”, he says.

With this in mind, an important trend has been precipitated in the market and it is the one that has to do with the opportunity that brands have found in technology and in making this channel a unique opportunity to scale in the face of consumer decisions.
