“The aim of launching an integrated plan for metaverse at this early time for this technology is for Dubai to be among the top ten cities that will shape this sector globally,” he added.

The strategy also aims “to double the number of blockchain and metaverse companies 5 times the current number within 5 years.”

Dubai also plans to facilitate cooperation between global virtual asset service providers, thought leaders in the virtual asset sector, and international regulatory authorities.
