According to the most recent Steam poll statistics, Meta controls 60% of the SteamVR market. Quest or Quest 2 are used by 40% of all SteamVR users.
Consumers will find the Meta Quest 2 to be the most economical and convenient VR headset. The Quest 2 is priced at $299, with a $399 premium version available. Nothing comes close to these pricing when compared to other options on the market. Furthermore, the Quest 2 does not require the use of a computer, making it a no-brainer for newcomers to the game.
SteamVR is Valve’s virtual reality content distribution platform as well as the VR hardware driver system. The Valve Index is a pricey PC-connected headset that has been on the market for more than two years. The Quest 2 is far less expensive than Valve’s hardware and offers a number of advantages, including wireless streaming for wireless VR.
Not unexpectedly, the Meta’s Quest 2 continues to gain traction month after month, according to Valve’s latest Steam survey findings. According to the results of this month’s study, over 36% of SteamVR users use a Quest 2 headset to enjoy their VR content, and when added in the 4% who use the original Quest headset, that accounts for 40% of all SteamVR users utilizing a Quest device.
Users of Meta’s earlier Rift and Rift S headsets account for a sizable portion of Steam VR users. The original Oculus Rift remains a popular VR headset, with over 5% of SteamVR users still using it. When it first came out, the Rift S was a much more popular headset. Over 20% of SteamVR customers are currently utilizing Oculus Rift, the company’s latest PC VR device.
In the race for virtual reality, Meta is ahead of the race. More than 60% of VR users purchased their headgear from Mark Zuckerberg’s company, despite the fact that there are more than a half-dozen additional VR headsets on the market. By 2022, this market will hopefully be more competitive.
CBI acquires Xave World Metaverse
Crypto Blockchain Industries, a French creator of games, technology, and blockchain products, has announced the acquisition of Xave, a blockchain technology firm located in Barcelona and Argentina that has been building Xave World, a specialized music metaverse. The Xave World metaverse, which has its own cryptocurrency and marketplace, provides a variety of entertainment and performance experiences, as well as production tools and multiple NFTs centered on music and performers.
Xave will become a part of the Alphaverse as a result of this purchase, integrating all music-related activities and allowing all Alphaverse users to enjoy events and music from Xave-launched artists.
The Xave World Metaverse leverages blockchain technology to create innovative experiences around music, making various technologies and tools available to artists and content creators to create their own concerts, sell tickets and NFTs, and broadcast via streaming, for example, in order to develop and promote their communities. Additionally, users will be able to monetise their own experiences and contribute to the growth of known or upcoming artists.
Xave World Metaverse has a decentralized economy using its own cryptocurrency
The Xave World Metaverse operates on a decentralized economy, which is fueled by its own cryptocurrency, Xave Coin, which has been openly traded on the Probit Global platform since March 2022. Xave has developed its own NFT marketplace, dubbed Xave Market, which functions as a digital shop dedicated to the selling of NFTs. Xave has created a unique approach that enables everyone to contribute to the funding of artists, their work, and their performances, as well as participate in their success.
Not only are the NFTs digital treasures, but they also provide access to rare encounters with the artists. Additionally, users and artists will be able to own a piece of Xave World’s open metaverse by buying plots of land and constructing unique houses or places inside it. Each piece of land conceals a secret, function, or valuable resource that owners might uncover and profit from.
Degree Deodorant Company Plays Host To Metaverse Marathon
Degree, the deodorant brand, has announced a partnership with Metaverse platform Decentraland recently. In order to help build a new standard of inclusivity and representation in the Web3.0 digital world. Decentraland and Grammy-nominated musician Fat Joe, along with the famous Paralympic Athlete Blake Leeper, will soon come together to host the Degree “Metathon.” This will be the world’s first marathon in the Metaverse. This event will take place on April 26 (tomorrow), 2022 at 6 p.m. EDT.
“From different body shapes to cultures to physical abilities, inclusion is key to making people feel welcome. I’m proud to take part in the Degree® Metathon™ and highlight this important message, so everyone feels comfortable and accepted in the metaverse.” -Degree Team
However, the Metathon by Degree is only the beginning. The project encapsulates the purpose of the whole new trajectory for the company called the Breaking Limits Program. This project will be a five-year, $5 million push to transform lives with the “power of movement.” This new Program is aimed at supporting youth sports organizations, whose individuals must confront serious barriers to being physically active. These barriers include racial biases, sexual orientation prejudice, ableism, financial limitations, gender, age, socioeconomic status, and many others. This project will provide these heroes with access to coaches and mentors, along with safe spaces to move and be active.
“Over the last several years, Degree® has made great strides in progressing our mission of championing everyone to have the confidence to move more, and now we’re taking that same mission into the virtual world.” This was a comment from a representative at Degree.

FOV Ventures aims to support metaverse ventures in Europe
FOV Ventures is a new venture capital firm that seeks to invest in metaverse enterprises in their early stages. According to the company, its first fund raised $18.1 million.
The venture capital firm, was founded last month by founding partners David Haynes and Petri Rajahalme with the goal of focusing on European-based metaverse firms. FOV Ventures describes itself as Europe’s go-to fund for ambitious founders launching a firm in the Metaverse, the Internet’s successor state and a trillion-dollar potential. “As a specialist fund, we invest at the earliest stage and attempt to contribute value through our domain expertise and worldwide network.”
The business typically makes first investments of up to €500,000 in pre-seed or seed stage European startups.
“We want to add value and collaborate as much as possible as a specialized fund. We are happy to lead rounds and bring in other angel investors at the pre-seed stage, or syndicate with other lead VCs at the seed stage”, says the company.
The company claims to have raised $18.1 million (€16.5 million) to date, with a target of $27.5 million (€25 million) for its first fund. The company expects to invest $274,000 to $550,000 (€250,000 to €500,000) in up to 25 pre-seed and seed stage businesses through the fund.
“Avatars and Identity,” “Retail and Digital,” “Immersive Social,” “Future of Work,” and “Tools and Infrastructure” are among the areas in which the corporation claims it wants to invest.
“The metaverse represents a significant expansion of today’s Internet,” according to the company, “growing more immersive, developed with new tools such as real-time 3D game engines, and crossing an increasingly blurred barrier between the virtual and physical worlds.”
The two founding partners, according to the company, have prior venture capital experience. Dave Haynes previously worked for Vive X, HTC’s virtual reality investment fund, and Seedcamp, a European startup capital business. Petri Rajahalme was the managing director of the Nordic XR Startups fund, where he was in charge of eight XR startups.
