Are we moving to a Snow Crash-like reality?

It's been a month since I finished Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash and I can't seem to get some things out of my head...seeing many parallels between the book and the world as it is moving today. Here are the two greatest parallels I see:
1. Metaverse: With VR-tech finally becoming mature enough, thanks to Oculus Rift.
2. Anarcho-capitalism: With the upcoming & booming Bitcoin 2.0 protocols like Ethereum which could bring about geographically-distributed nation-states to reality.

What do you think?
