Sigh.

You know that one episode of Black Mirror where people are forced to give each other ratings after every interaction? Every single day, we get closer to it actually becoming reality, rather than fiction.

With Mark Zuckerberg's Metaverse becoming more prevalent day by day, it is safe to say that we'll all be entering the virtual world sooner than later, but now the company is also introducing a new form of currency dubbed "Zuck Bucks" by the company's own employees.

Don't worry – it is not a new cryptocurrency. Thank God!

The introduction of the new currency is part of Meta's development of a range of virtual products, which includes digital tokens like "creator coins" which aim to target a new user base, as plenty of former users are ditching Instagram and Facebook for TikTok.

According to The Guardian, some of the products in the pipeline include "social tokens" and "reputation tokens," which are awarded to users depending on achievements, their public persona, profession, and so on. We already know that Meta is trying to diversify its offerings, recently announcing that it will start incorporating and creating NFTs, as well as previously trying their luck at actually creating new cryptocurrency, which was shut down earlier this year.

As of now, we're still a while away before these "Zuck Bucks" actually become available, but knowing Mark Zuckerberg himself, it will start rolling out before we know it.

Who knows, maybe it will be really well-received and we'll start making friends based on their "reputation tokens!" What could possibly go wrong?
