    The Metaverse
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2022-06-08) World Bank
    The Metaverse, widely regarded as a successor to today’s internet, is a concept embodying a unified digital world that is tightly connected to the physical world. In the Metaverse, people can interact without physical or geographic constraints and enjoy a compelling sense of social presence. This offers a positive impact on the real world in various areas. In addition, the Metaverse can serve as a globally unified economic system for digital content that enables entities in different countries to interact frictionlessly. The emerging technologies curation series aims to capture and share Korea’s experience and lessons learned in regard to the exploration and adoption of emerging technologies such as blockchain, AI, edge-computing, IoT, 5G, and so forth. This third issue in the series briefly describes the Metaverse and its potential for solving development challenges, alongside key highlights of Korea’s experience.
