Metaverse Graphics Priority, NFT Licenses, A Couple of Lawsuits +more

People are wondering why the Metaverse graphics suck? Even after $177 Billion has been spent. It looks similar to what Second Life was years ago.

Our simple thought is, it is not a priority for those developing it right now.

There are real challenges to delivering great graphics. Even if Pixar or other Hollywood CGI houses did the graphics, the hardware and bandwidth is going to hinder delivery right now. Which means the experience of play may suffer.

Having said that, graphics and design are incredibly important. Steve Jobs knew it. Sushi restaurants know it. Presentation is as important as the meal itself.
