Key roles for metaverse companiesWu Yunsheng (the company’s Cloud Vice-President) commented on Tencent’s achievements so far.
We will not distinguish between 2B or 2C in order to implement technology. The company’s metaverse technology can be used in applications in the 2B field (such a Baowu Steel) and in the C-side QQ metaverse. We will not be able to clearly demonstrate whether it’s 2B or 2C but we will only show the real value and convenience that our technology can provide for people’s lives as well as their production.
Liu Bai, Netease Yaotai’s “person in control”, claimed that the company has a variety of activities and almost “100 types of personalized clothing” which will be used in in-depth simulations. Bai also described the key functions of metaverse companies. Bai stated that the most important positions in Metaverse businesses are R&D and product planning. Art is also an important position.
