00:35- About Wan Wei, Soh

  • As an advocate of open source movements, Wan Wei founded IKIGUIDE Metaverse Collective (IMC), an entity with a mission to help 10 million people crossover into the Web3.0 space.
  • Wan Wei is also one of the founding team members of the dWeb Southeast Asian node and the Metaverse for All: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity Movement.

00:52- About IKIGUIDE Metaverse Collective

  • I spent four years of my life in Finland and in 2014 we started IKIGUIDE because in Finland there was a great open source movement and culture.
  • In 2017 because of the bull market we pivoted to specialize just in bitcoin and blockchain startups.
  • In 2021, we decided to focus on Metaverse because we realized a lot of attention and capital is moving towards it.

04:26- How will the digital challenges be handled by companies in a virtual world?

  • One of the challenges is definitely the concept of safe space because especially with the open metaverse, the definition of open means that who has the right to regulate what I want to do.
  • On that matter, this is a bit dangerous because human nature is both good and bad, and we cannot really control how people will behave through their avatars on the metaverse.
  • The next challenge is probably interoperability, which is one very big technical issue in the open metaverse because we keep hearing people say that the idea of if I were to hold an NFT or a digital asset in my decentralized wallet I can actually use it in any open metaverse.

09:36- How does someone determine which metaverse to be in?

There are three reasons or three attributes of the metaverse that make it very appealing to users:

  • It needs to be interactive
  • It could be immersive
  • It needs to be social
