Metaverse Cost $1.2 Billion, Has 38 Users

Meta is just facing bad news, after bad news: They're very own 'Metaverse' is so underpopulated, that it's a legit joke. Here's why.

So, Meta's metaverse (yeah, that rolls off the tongue...) goes by the name of Decentraland, which... is a name that actually should've received my cheeky in-brackets comment. Decentraland is a world where you buy and sell virtual property, and the project cost Meta $1.2 billion dollars, and currently has... 38 active users.

Metaverse Is The Biggest Flop Ever

Look, Meta still has a shot at a gaming-foothold with its Quest, thanks to the newly revealed Gamepass addition. As far as their metaverse sandbox, Decentraland, is concerned, though... money wasted. I'll repeat what I stated up top: $1.2 billion budget, with 38 active users in a 24 hour timeframe. That's a wtf if I've ever heard one.

To be fair, there is a way to make this number sound better: The 38 users are only the people interacting with contracts and spending money. As far as 'idle' active users goes, the true number is 8000, which... is less than your run-of-the-mill TikTok account gets per video...

It's safe to say that Decentraland is an absolute embarassment for Meta, in both name and activity. It seems that ever since changing their name to Meta, Facebook has gotten nothing but big fat Ls, and while I would pity them... 38 active spenders on a project worth $1.2 billion is just too hilarious not to laugh at...
