The French government is taking aim at the power of web giants with a new consultation on the Metaverse. The consultation, published on April 11th, seeks to explore how the Metaverse could provide a more decentralized approach to digital services and an alternative to the dominance of web giants.
The Metaverse is a virtual world made up of interconnected digital realities, where users can interact with one another and with objects. It has gained in popularity over the past few years, with the arrival of virtual reality technology, and is now seen as a way of breaking up the dominance of traditional web giants.
The French government’s consultation looks at how the Metaverse could be used to provide users with a more secure and user-friendly experience, while also providing a more decentralized approach to digital services. It also looks at how the Metaverse could be used to facilitate the sharing of data between users, as well as providing an alternative way for users to access services and content.
The consultation is looking for feedback from citizens and other stakeholders on the potential benefits and challenges of using the Metaverse for digital services. It also seeks to understand the potential impact of the Metaverse on businesses and the economy, including any potential regulatory considerations that may need to be taken into account.
The French government is taking a proactive approach to exploring the potential of the Metaverse, and this consultation is part of a wider effort to make sure that the technology is used responsibly and in a way that benefits users, businesses, and the economy.
The consultation is open until June 10th and is open to everyone, including citizens, businesses, and other stakeholders. Those who wish to take part are invited to submit their feedback in the form of a questionnaire, which can be filled out online, or via post.
This consultation is an important step in the development of the Metaverse, and it will be interesting to see how France’s approach is received. It could be a significant move towards providing users with an alternative to the dominance of web giants, and it could provide an opportunity for businesses to explore new opportunities with the technology.
