Meta to begin testing transactions tools for its metaverse

Facebook owner Meta Platforms is beginning to test tools for selling digital assets and experiences within its virtual reality platform Horizon Worlds, a key part of its plan for creating a metaverse.

The tools will be available initially to a handpicked set of users who are creating virtual classes, games and fashion accessories within the company’s immersive platform, which is accessible via VR headsets, Meta said in a statement. Using one tool, those select users will be able to sell their accessories or offer paid access to specialized digital spaces they have built.

The social media giant is also testing out a “creator bonus” program for a small set of Horizon Worlds users in the United States, through which it will pay participants each month for using new features the company launches.
