The metaverse has become a hot topic driven by the scientific and technological foundation and actual needs. It has received widespread attention in the scientific community, the media, and the private sector. Some studies believe that the metaverse may completely change life patterns. Theoretically, theories related to the metauniverse emerge in an endless stream, but the combination of theory and industry is still in its infancy. This paper analyzes the current situation and development prospects of the metaverse industry from the three properties of the metaverse itself. The metauniverse has broken through the limitations of time and space and has a certain industrial foundation in entertainment, education, and psychotherapy. Human-machine integration is another property of the metauniverse itself. Reality is mapped to the virtual world and combined with virtual natives to bring a new sense of somatic feedback. The third point is the unique economic value of the metauniverse. Decentralized cryptocurrency is widely used, and digital collections are used as commodities in the virtual world to promote monetary circulation. At present, the data of the metaverse industry is relatively small. To analyze the value of the metauniverse more specifically, we need to summarize the data.
