Included in Full Research


  • Web3は、インターネットに取って代わるものではなく、インターネットのWebコンポーネントの一部を非中央集権化する。

  • メタバースが進化しても、これがインターネットやWebに取って代わることはない。メタバースはそれらをベースにして、仮想的に拡張されたイマーシブな (没入型の) デジタル空間 (3Dレンダリング、拡張現実 [AR]/仮想現実 [VR] など) や物理空間 (アンビエント [環境に溶け込んだ] コンピューティング、ヒューマン・オーグメンテーションなど) を創り出す。

  • Web3とメタバースは、並行して進化している相互補完的な概念であり、企業はこれらを単独で、あるいは組み合わせて活用できるようになる。インターネットは1つしか存在しないが (ただし、地政学的な分断の増加によるいくつかの例外はある)、メタバースの実装環境は複数存在するようになり、Web3がその土台となる可能性がある。



  • Web3の将来を評価する際は、データとアプリケーションの非中央集権化に重点を置く。特定のテクノロジにフォーカスするという罠を回避する。

  • イマーシブ機能の拡張に注力し、メタバースの進化に備える。「完璧なメタバース」は決して実現しない可能性があるため、その登場を待ってはならない。

  • 中央集権型モデルと非中央集権型モデル (およびハイブリッド・モデル) が価値をもたらす時期と領域を評価し、Web3とメタバースから価値を得られる可能性を高める。非中央集権型モデルが価値をもたらす数少ないビジネス機会を文書化し、ポートフォリオを作成し、そうしたビジネス機会を追求する。
