Metaverse is building parallel universes of sorts. Virtual reality glasses and augmented reality software will create an alternate world for users to exist and interact in. Safe to say, sophisticated technology that helps you enter an entirely different world is capable of capturing information like never before. So, just how much of a threat could this cutting-edge technology pose to our privacy? Metaverse’s leading innovator, Tom Graham, answers your most pressing questions.
Blockchain is a decentralized system that has snatched the power from a chosen few big corporations and handed it back to the masses. And is a major building block of the metaverse. So, naturally, the metaverse belongs not to corporations but to us – the people. Tom Graham explains that metaverse has no greedy billionaire that stands to benefit from your data. Additionally, data collection is made tremendously hard by way of military-grade secure and decentralized systems. That is where anonymity comes into the picture.
In this new world built with cutting-edge technology, your identity is masked – you are free to innovate without fear of humiliation from failure. At a time when there’s little you can do without being closely monitored, privacy is a luxury that comes at high costs.
Subconscious biases cause quite a few hurdles in real life. Even today, we are actively judged based on skin color, ethnicity, nationality, gender, etc. What if technology promised you a land where you can exist virtually, without anyone knowing it was you? The virtual land of metaverse gives you the chance to be truly yourself without being afraid of being unfairly judged for it.
Tom Graham reiterates the main benefit of metaverse – with the help of the decentralized Web3 system, you get to pick your avatar. For the first time, you get the freedom to choose an entirely new identity for yourself. In this land of the free, you are free to create, innovate, and inspire fearlessly!
