The term “metaverse” is as controversial as it is a calling card for tech businesses to create the next new interactive digital experience, but Baszucki’s Ro­blox remains one of its clearest examples. Both a game and a creation platform where players design their own experiences, Roblox is massively popular, drawing in just under 58 million daily active users (DAUs) in September, a 23% year-over-over increase that negated Q2, which saw the first quarterly decrease in subscribers after years of exceptional growth.
