Meta is exploring the creation of a virtual currency for the metaverse. The Financial Times reports it citing some sources, according to which the currency is currently called ‘Zuck Bucks’ within the company. This is unlikely to be a blockchain-based cryptocurrency. In fact, the introduction of tokens whose control would be centralized in companies is being studied, similar to the Robux used in the popular Roblox game for children. In 2019 Facebook had tried to launch its own virtual currency, but the project called Diem then failed.
