Around the “metaverse” proposal, 38 members joined hands

Our reporter Cui Lvping

At this year’s two sessions, Tan Jianfeng, member of the National Committee of the Chinese people’s Political Consultative Conference, 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”. Unexpectedly, this proposal was finally submitted jointly by 38 members, “Everyone’s high attention to this matter also makes me realize that in the development of the new digital economy, in the face of new things, we really need to have the wisdom and courage to advance the layout of regulatory logic.” Talking about this, Tan Jianfeng said.

Since last year, the concept of “metaverse” has gradually been sought after. Some people believe that, as an important emerging industry connecting the physical world and the digital world, “metaverse” will reshape the digital economic system and even the way of human production and life.

“I have always believed that the in-depth development of the digital economy is based on the integration with the real economy. Many things, in a long cycle, we can find that they are valuable to economic and social development, but most people can’t see their application logic clearly in the short term. At this time, we should be careful not to use the national development plan and hot concepts of capital utilization, so as to make people misunderstand the national industrial policy and mislead the implementation of local industrial planning It will generate new regulatory risks of digital economy and create a new virtual economic bubble. Since the second half of last year, Tan Jianfeng has paid close attention to the fact that the concept of “metaverse” has been pursued by the industry. In this process, he repeatedly told our reporter that he paid attention to the concept and application development of “metaverse” and arranged industry supervision and public opinion guidance in advance.

In Tan Jianfeng’s view, on the basis of adhering to the bottom line and red line, supervision should step up the formulation of corresponding norms 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 tolerance for industrial development. We should also pay attention to building the core competitiveness of the national digital economy with technology, do a good job in data security protection, and effectively prevent the superposition of various risks such as various technologies, markets and businesses.

Then you may ask, is it difficult for regulators to study policies and lay out industry supervision in advance?

In this regard, Tan Jianfeng also affirmed: “Although the operators of ‘metaverse’ community still claim that this is a decentralized society, in fact, the rules of governance and trading are controlled and guided by enterprise giants. From the development history of the Internet, public opinion governance, transaction supervision, personal privacy protection and even the maintenance of national sovereignty in the network virtual society are serious challenges, which are still being explored and improved. Metaverse will bring great challenges to the above problems Greater challenges. At present, NFT virtual artworks based on blockchain Technology (such as cartoon portraits and electronic oil paintings) have become popular in ‘metaverse’, but its supervision is difficult to implement, which may form a new channel for money laundering. Relevant industry regulatory authorities should study regulatory policies in advance to prevent possible systemic risks. “

It’s difficult to play regulatory first hand chess, but Tan Jianfeng believes that, Some things change forever: “I suggest that the Ministry of public security, the State Administration of market supervision and administration, the people’s Bank of China and other departments under the leadership of the central network information office should supervise the enterprises operating online communities, online games and online transactions with the concept of ‘metaverse’ in accordance with 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; at the same time, we should pay attention to and follow up the research in the concept of ‘metaverse’ The new models and mechanisms generated shall be studied and formulated in advance according to the needs. For example, formulate the filing and registration system and the supervision system of operation transaction mode to prevent system risks in advance. “

Rationalize the regulatory logic. From the perspective of helping the development of digital economy, the market should get rid of the word “speculation” for the concept of “metaverse” early. Tan Jianfeng believes that the core technology of “metaverse” should be systematically arranged.

“The technology level 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 is an important direction to occupy the commanding height of competition in the future. The technology and application of ‘metaverse’ are still developing rapidly. In terms of technology, we should pay attention to the international development trend, but we should not just follow the trend or take advantage of it ’, we should really find something based on our own core technology as the basis for the development of ‘metaverse’, systematically layout and invest in relevant enterprises in advance from the national level, and 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. ” Tan Jianfeng said so.

Further strengthening the guidance of public opinion is the most talked about point of view when Tan Jianfeng talked about “metaverse” in the past six months. In his opinion, objectively speaking, the current “metaverse” theory is greater than practical application, and there is still great uncertainty in related technologies. There is still a long way to reach “metaverse” and the return is still far away. Therefore, we should be more vigilant about the “story” divorced from the specific scene. 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.

“Not long ago, the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC) issued a warning on preventing the risk of illegal fund-raising in the name of ‘metaverse’. I remember we talked about this topic at that time. In that same sentence, 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 guard against negative guiding effects. In this regard, we should all From the perspective of the ball range, everyone has experience and lessons. ” Tan Jianfeng said so.
