Meta announced that the metaverse ecosystem called Horizon Worlds currently serves more than 300,000 users and that 10 thousand virtual worlds have been created so far.

One of the first actions of Facebook, which took the name Meta, was to make the metaverse universe Horizon Worlds available. This metaverse universe allows consumers to maintain both their business and private lives in a virtual world. The universe, which can be used with the company's virtual reality equipment called Quest 2, suddenly changed the technology agenda when it came out.

Joe Osborne, one of the company spokespersons of Meta, who has not shared any statistics on the use of the metaverse universe so far, announced that the number of Horizon Worlds users has reached 300 thousand people. This statement means that the platform has grown 10x since its launch in December 2021.

One of the important features of Horizon Worlds is that users can create their own worlds, just like in games like Roblox or Minecraft. According to Meta's statements, Horizon Worlds users have created and continue to create 10 thousand virtual worlds to date. This means that the virtual reality universe is getting bigger every day.

Meta has never disclosed how many Quest gear it has sold to date. However, according to third-party sources, this figure is over 10 million. This means that the number of Horizon Worlds users can reach up to 10 million. Meta has announced that it will launch the mobile version of Horizon Worlds towards the end of 2022.


Metaverse May Explode in the Global Marketplace

Hong Kong has taken another important step towards the metaverse. CSOP Asset Management has announced the nation's first metaverse exchange-traded fund (ETF). The fund will be listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on February 21, 2022. According to CSOP's statement, it was stated that the global metaverse market will increase from approximately $5 million in 2020 to $1.5 trillion in 2030, representing a 253% rise.
