Another attempt at shoehorning artificial scarcity into VR platforms to make a quick buck. I can't tell if there's just a generation of engineers who grew up never realizing that web3's promise of "decentralized computing" already exists and is called "hosting whatever you want on your own servers". If you have the hardware to run a VR server (still a stretch), there's no need to strap an inefficient ledger to it on the off chance people want to pay for their ones and zeros; just run whatever cool VR thing you were planning to run already!

Why start at the infrastructure level? The first iteration of Facebook was a hacked together php app. It feels like a lot of these Web3 attempts are more about trying to do something "big" than actually provide value first.
