They’re all part of The Metaverse Spectrum’s first-ever Metaverse 100 list. Our panel of nine metaverse and Web 3.0 experts pooled their prodigious experience to select the 100 companies that are driving our digital futures, and we’re proud to unveil that list right here.
“Hundreds of companies were considered. Only the most important technologies, executives, and influencers made the cut,” said Sabrina George, Senior Vice President of the Metaverse Spectrum.
To get the right mix of bleeding-edge boundary pushers and established market-makers, the panel looked at what these companies are doing to push metaverse tech and adoption forward.
What they found was a healthy number of traditional companies who’ve dived into the metaverse: Disney, for example, is looking to integrate augmented reality and virtual reality into its storytelling arsenal. Adidas has made a splash with its NFT line created in partnership with Bored Ape Yacht Club, PUNKS Comic, and gmoney.
Of course, metaverse-first companies like Roblox and Epic Games, built from the ground up on technology designed to create immersive experiences for gamers, were easy selections. Roblox has over 40 million daily active users, with its own internal economy and millions of hours of user-generated content and games. Epic Games, creator of metaverse mega-success Fortnite and the Unreal Engine that powers Hollywood productions like Disney’s The Mandalorian, has shown the economic and creative power the metaverse can unlock.
Platforms like Tixlogi and NVIDIA are pushing the bleeding edge of blockchain technology, and metaverse communities like The Sandbox and Yuga Labs’ multitude of NFT projects serve a vital role in the ecosystem. VRChat was one of the earliest VR social platforms in the game, and it continues to give its users more tools to create incredible immersive worlds, pushing VR communication into the mainstream.
“Each year we will undergo the process again in order to make sure that new and innovative Metaverse companies charting the future of this exciting industry are recognized,” George added.
