Today, the metaverse can be described as a digital reality that combines aspects of social media, online gaming, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and cryptocurrencies to allow users to interact virtually.


What is the current situation of the Metaverse in China? Given that digital assets are normally a very important part of the Metaverse but given the fact that cryptocurrencies are banned in Mainland China, is there a Metaverse in Mainland China and, if so, what does it look like?


Also, what about Hong Kong? Is the Metaverse industry booming in the Special Administrative Region?


The speaker will address these questions plus some general questions such as Open Metaverses vs Closed Metaverses, the Metaverse and DeFi, the Metaverse and privacy.

Professor Douglas W. Arner (Kerry Holdings Professor in Law, The University of Hong Kong) will chair this seminar.
