Since last year, the concept of “metaverse” has gradually been sought after. As an important emerging industry connecting the physical world and the digital world, “metaverse” will reshape the digital economic system and reconstruct human production and life style.
When attending the two sessions in Beijing, Tan Jianfeng, member of the CPPCC National Committee, President of the fifth space information technology research institute and honorary president of Shanghai Information Security Industry Association, brought a proposal on strengthening the supervision of metaverse market and preventing the risks of new digital economy.
In the 14th five year plan, it is clearly required to “create new advantages of digital economy”, which has raised the goal and role of digital economy development and digital transformation to the height of the national economy. The central network information office recently issued the action plan for improving the digital literacy and skills of the whole people, which requires that by 2025, the whole people use digital skills to realize a digital life of wisdom sharing and harmonious governance, strengthen digital security, and greatly improve the level of digital ethics.
“From top-level design to strategic planning, we have the foundation to develop the digital economy, but at the same time, we should also prevent individuals from taking advantage of policy dividends and cutting investors’ leeks.” With the deepening development of the digital economy, Tan Jianfeng thought that we should guard against capital utilization of the national development plan and the hot spot concept, let the people misunderstand the national industrial policy, mislead the implementation of the local industrial planning, and create the risk of the new digital economy supervision, and create a new fictitious economic bubble.
In response to the possible market chaos of “metaverse”, Tan Jianfeng said that “metaverse” industry supervision, technology research and development and public opinion guidance should be arranged in advance. On the basis of adhering to the bottom line and red line, supervision should step up the formulation of corresponding standards and rules, guide social capital to invest in the field of original and leading innovation, break through existing constraints and provide a certain degree of inclusiveness for industrial development.
In this regard, he put forward three specific suggestions, including studying policies in advance and arranging industry supervision; System layout “metaverse” core technology, and further strengthen public opinion guidance.
Tan Jianfeng, who is deeply involved in the field of Internet security, found that NFT virtual works of Art (such as cartoon portraits and electronic oil paintings) based on blockchain technology have become popular in “metaverse”, but its supervision is difficult to implement, which may form a new channel for money laundering.
In the proposal, he suggested that the central network information office should lead the Ministry of public security, the market supervision and Administration Bureau, the people’s Bank of China and other departments to deal with enterprises operating online communities, online games and online transactions with the concept of “metaverse”, Supervise according to the national network security law, data security law, personal information protection law, announcement on preventing the financing risk of token issuance and other legal norms; Pay attention to and track the new models and mechanisms generated in the concept of “metaverse”, and study and formulate regulatory laws and norms in advance as needed. For example, formulate the filing and registration system and the supervision system of operation transaction mode to prevent system risks in advance.
The technology layer is the leading scene of “metaverse” and the key field for large enterprises to compete with multinational corporations. Seizing the development opportunities of “metaverse” industry and prospectively arranging key core technologies and major application scenarios are an important direction to occupy the commanding height of competition in the future.
The technology and application oriented to “metaverse” are developing rapidly. Tan Jianfeng believes that we should pay close attention to the international development trend in technology, but we should not just follow the trend, or still use the same set of ideas. We should really find something that can be used as the basis for the development of “metaverse” based on our own core technology, Systematically arrange and invest in relevant enterprises in advance from the national level to change the passive situation of following and being controlled by others for a long time in the fields of information technology and Internet, especially in the basic fields of metaverse industry, such as chips, systems, tools, etc.
“Metaverse” has a long way to go, and we should be more vigilant about some “stories” that are separated from specific scenes. Not long ago, the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC) issued the “tips on preventing the risk of illegal fund-raising in the name of” metaverse “.
Tan Jianfeng said, “The overheated investment of the capital market in metaverse and the vigorous publicity of social media are easy to mislead or adversely affect the public. We should avoid using the ‘metaverse’ community to guide social public opinion and the impact of financial and economic models, advocate a rational view of the soaring of metaverse concept stocks, and balance market development, social governance and basic values View guidance and prevent negative guidance effects. “
