Mark Zuckerberg: Meta will Test Selling Virtual Goods in the Metaverse

The Index Today

Mark Zuckerberg said Meta is testing new tools that allow creators to sell virtual assets and experiences within the worlds they build on Horizon Worlds. “The ability to sell virtual items and access to things inside the worlds is a new part of [the] e-commerce equation overall,” Zuckerberg said.

Over the last few months, companies and individuals have been snapping up everything from art to real estate in virtual worlds on platforms like Decentraland and The SandBox. Now it looks as though Zuckerberg wants to let users do the same on Horizon Worlds.

In a video published late Monday as part of a blogpost, the tech billionaire said that Meta is testing new tools that allow creators to sell virtual assets and experiences within the worlds they build on Horizon.

“We’re starting rolling this out with just a handful of creators and we’ll see how it goes but I imagine that overtime we’ll get to roll it out more and more.” Zuckerberg said.
