Corruption through the Metaverse

Metaverse, one of the most exciting technological developments of recent years, brings with it many ethical and legal problems. These ethical concerns in the metaverse are also issues for the non-digital life – such as privacy, social and economic inequalities, accessibility, identity control, and freedom of creative expression. In addition, there are many unknowns from a legal point of view. What regulations will protect people if real-world crimes happen entirely digitally?

Every new invention can provide countless benefits when used in the name of humanity and with good intentions. But what if this doesn’t happen? When we start to see the reflections of all the problems in the real world in the Metaverse universe, will irreversible damage be possible?
