The Battle for an Open Metaverse

  • An open Metaverse would be one controlled by the community that uses it, works in it, and lives in it.
  • A closed Metaverse would be one that mines users’ data and implements that information to dictate their online experience

A Dystopian Future

“If one central company gains control of this [the Metaverse], they will become more powerful than any government and be a god on Earth.”

Dangers of a Closed Metaverse

  • Centralized
  • Governed by Big Tech with corporate mindsets
  • No autonomous control over user data
  • Stifles community innovation
  • Reduced opportunity
  • Less security through a lack of interoperability
