According to the World Economic Forum, a working metaverse has three key components: presence, interoperability, and standardization.

While virtual and augmented experiences get more immersive by the day, interoperability and standardization should be wired into the metaverse's DNA from day one to avoid silos and walled gardens. So how can we construct the foundation of an open, utopic metaverse in which the travel and hospitality industries can flourish without being paralyzed by the same old Web 2.0 paradigm?

The metaverse is a vast virtual world that involves a growing variety of elements, such as avatars, architects, fashion, music, marketing, and even hardware. Thus, it is almost impossible that all those things will be provided by one company. Interoperability will come naturally in the metaverse.

I am not sure that a revolution will be needed to have presence, interoperability, and standardization in the Metaverse. Today in the mobile world there is no interoperability at all, but apps allow us to be present in the same digital context.
