Leave no-one behind.
We need inclusive and accessible hardware and software so that everyone can access the Metaverse and the technologies that make it possible.
The rules of the game have changed.
Regulation is essential for people to manage the new economies and products of the Metaverse.
We ensure digital well-being.
Mental and physical health
Technology addiction, obsessive use of the Metaverse and cyberbullying are some of the health challenges we face in this new era.
We are committed to transparency and data control.
Privacy and Security
XR technology collects even more personal data such as locations, eye movements and voice patterns, which require more privacy management.
Striking a balance between freedom of expression and disinformation.
The Metaverse increasingly connects physical and virtual reality. In view of the lack of regulation, it is important to control the dissemination of malicious content.
We approach this technological challenge in a sustainable way.
To bank on a "green Metaverse" we need to reduce the carbon footprint of computing, using consensus algorithms and technologies that consume less electricity.
Innovation with values is the most effective tool for making progress and leaving the world a better place than we found it.
