Metaverse has gained significant attention in recent years, as advances in technology have made it possible for people to interact with each other and with virtual environments in increasingly immersive and realistic ways. Some potential applications of the metaverse include virtual reality gaming, virtual events and conferences, virtual tourism, virtual education and training, virtual real estate, and virtual socializing. The metaverse is also being explored as a potential platform for remote work and collaboration, allowing people to work together and share ideas in a virtual environment. Creating a World Metaverse Index (WMI) can be important for a number of reasons: Navigation and discovery, Categorization and organization, Community building and networking, and Research and analysis. There are several indicators that could be taken into account when creating a WMI: Size and scope, Theme or focus, Technology and platform, Popularity and user base, Content and features, and Quality and stability. World Metaverse Index can be an important resource for users, creators, and researchers of virtual worlds, helping to facilitate the exploration and development of this growing and increasingly important area of the internet. This index should aim to provide users with a comprehensive overview of the different virtual worlds available, including information about their size, theme, technology, popularity, content, and quality.
