At the beginning of this year, some netizens found that the strategic business department of NetEase Thunder Fire Division released a number of blockchains and Metaverse-related recruitment information, including blockchain system/application development, blockchain Chain system testing, blockchain product operation, and market commerce (Metaverse/NFT direction), etc.

In addition, in response to the landing of the Metaverse, NetEase has been recruiting positions such as builders for virtual scene construction and face pinchers for virtual characters.

Ding Lei, founder, and CEO of NetEase, also said last year: "I can tell you with great certainty that NetEase has made preparations in terms of technology and planning for the Metaverse, how to design specifications and how to do technology. Reserve. One shot and we'll probably run faster than anyone else."

According to The Paper, Wang Yuan, Vice President of NetEase, Executive Dean of the Research Institute, and General Manager of NetEase Shufan, said in an interview: NetEase has accumulated technology in the field of games, through the engine capabilities and product construction capabilities of games.

It is reported that the concept of the metaverse began in the 1992 science fiction novel "Avalanche" by American writer Neil Stephenson. In the book, Stephenson describes a surreal digital space "Metaverse", where people separated by geographic space can interact with each other through their "avatars", spend their leisure time, and can control their income at will.

A number of interviewees as saying that the Metaverse, as a carrier for the integration of the virtual world and the real world, contains huge opportunities for social, content, game, office, and other scene changes, and it is the integration of blockchain. New Internet applications and social forms are generated by a variety of new technologies.

However, the metaverse is technically still in its infancy, and most companies are just getting started.

Professor Zhu Jiaming, director of the Academic and Technical Committee of the Digital Assets Research Institute, once said: The connotation of "metaverse" is to absorb the information revolution (5G/6G), Internet revolution (web3.0), artificial intelligence revolution, and VR (virtual reality) , AR (Augmented Reality), MR (Mixed Reality), especially the results of the virtual reality technology revolution including game engines.
