Metaverse, Web3 and other terms have been used to describe certain aspects of the future web. These technologies are creating immersive worlds that cross digital and real-life beyond the hype. As more people migrate to the metaverse to work, play and “live,” so to speak, real-world complications are bound to arise.
Ever wondered how crime will be regulated in the metaverse. How can we prevent bad actors from ruining the next leap in human ingenuity and innovation? Cointelegraph’s editor-in-chief Kristina Lucrezia Cornèr pondered these questions and more in an exclusive interview with Next Earth’s David Taylor and ActiveFence’s Tomer Poran. The talk lasted 20 minutes and was held in Dublin’s oldest bar.
Poran responded to a question about how to address the problem of bad actors in the metaverse.
“Don’t try to fix fraudsters or Nazis or terrorists. They will continue to exist. They existed before the internet and they’ll exist after.”
However, that doesn’t mean the problem can’t be addressed. “There is one aspect that we as platform providers can do, which is education,” said Taylor. “And just constant education. It will never be enough.”

Taylor and Poran also provided examples of bad actors within the metaverse. We don’t want to spoil the interview, but one example was a plot of land in the shape of a swastika being sold. There are also the scammers, fraudsters and crooks.
Corner closed the interview by asking when mainstream society will finally be ready to embrace the metaverse. You’re going to want to hear the experts’ thoughtful answers on this one, especially if you are banking on metaverse plays being part of your crypto portfolio moving forward.
