Decentraland vs Facebook Metaverse: Which Metaverse Will Succeed?

Both Decentraland and Facebook’s Metaverse have a lot going for them. However, they are slightly different from each other. And with both of them having such an established name and being at such a high level, they are likely to cause stiff competition in the market. Therefore, it's Decentraland vs Facebook. Let’s take a look at both Decentraland and Facebook’s Metaverse and see who will win the Metaverse run.

Decentraland vs Facebook Metaverse: What is the Difference? 

Indeed, both are different. Firstly, the Decentraland Metaverse is a reality whereas the Facebook Metaverse is just a concept as of now.

Secondly, Decentraland is a decentralized virtual universe that gives its users full ownership of their digital assets. This means the virtual universe of Decentraland is owned by its users. In contrast, even though Facebook calls its virtual world decentralized, it is a different concept from "decentralization" from a blockchain perspective, as Facebook is a centralized governing body.

Finally, the prospective Facebook (Oops! Meta) Metaverse is delivered in 3D and you need a VR headset to access the promised virtual world. The whole idea of Facebook Metaverse is to go beyond the confines of the computer screen and be "right there with people no matter how far apart we actually are".

On the other hand, Decentraland has yet to create a VR experience. As of now, Decentraland is a web-based platform and the gameplay is restricted to only Windows PC or macOS devices. However, in the foreseeable future, it is likely that Decentraland will be available on VR devices.

Which Metaverse Will Succeed?

Both Decentraland and Facebook’s Metaverse have their own unique advantages. However, people are actually making money on the Decentraland Metaverse while having fun. So, it's safe to say that Decentraland has already been a success. In less than a year, it has already managed to establish itself as a thriving ecosystem with thousands of people involved in the project. It is still growing steadily and the reason for that is the fact that many people love what it offers.

The Facebook Metaverse is an exciting, innovative idea. It’s a new type of online world that offers an entirely new type of social experience and promises to revolutionize the way we work and play. Although it is too early to predict the success of this prospective platform, we can already see that people are excited about Facebook Metaverse.

While some people are skeptical of Facebook Metaverse's chances of success, others believe that Facebook can bring the Metaverse mainstream. The future, however, is tricky to predict, so we need to wait and see.
