A Bankless Times study into further data on Metaverse interest and attitudes found that only 16% of people did not think they would ever work within the Metaverse, from a survey of more than 31,000 workers.

Bankless Times also found a massive increase of 938% in Google search interest for jobs within the Metaverse.
