Getting married and sued in the Metaverse

Indeed a brave new world we live in. Singapore’s chosen initial official fora for the metaverse could be marriages and court. I see the similarities - potentially life-changing events presided over by state appointed officials. While virtual presence might take away some of the sting and unpleasantries of both situations, I wonder how identity management would be ensured as getting married to or suing the wrong person is no laughing matter.


What else will happen in the Metaverse? Stay tuned for an exciting announcement coming up!
