UAE Authorities Proposed to Criminalize “Murder” in the Metaverse

UAE Artificial Intelligence Minister Omar Sultan Al Olama called for criminalization of “serious crimes” in the metaverse.

According to CNBC, the minister believes that the realism of the metaverse will allow people to “terrorize” others in various ways that were not previously available.

He added that “killing” an avatar in a realistic virtual environment could lead to aggressive retaliation, and therefore called on the International Telecommunication Union to discuss the establishment of international security standards for the metaverse, which people must adhere to regardless of jurisdiction. As an example, he cited general Internet standards that prevent drug trafficking and distribution of child pornography.

Earlier, crypto exchanges in the UAE received countless applications from Russian citizens to convert digital assets into fiat or withdraw to buy real estate
