The new (virtual) reality
With the help of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), as well as with the help of blockchain technologies, an environment that looks as real as possible is created. In this, Internet users can move freely in the form of avatars.
SaaS company Walkme used the SEMrush analytics tool to search its database with the search term “metaverse”. The average search activity for this keyword in 27 European countries was determined.
In order to ensure the reliability of the data, the term has been used not only in English but also, where possible and necessary, in the national languages. The monthly search activity thus obtained was then compensated by the total number of Internet users in the respective countries and extrapolated to one million Internet users.
