Metaverse is a new buzzword du jour. Is it a mega-trend or a fad? Many leading analysts have put a staggering $3-13 Trillion dollar worth of global economic opportunity around it. In this interactive talk, Wenjing will help demystify and unpack the layers of arguably the most important technology and business super-cycle of the next decade.
