Advantages of cloud computing that can help you in your business 2023 Mon, 17 Oct 2022 15:01:59 +0000

Businesses today are looking to operate more flexibly and profitably. This has led to the rise of cloud computing as a viable solution for almost any business. Cloud computing uses a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet and accessed through standard web browsers or mobile apps.

It allows users to store data remotely, exchange files, and access software applications from anywhere with an Internet connection. Additionally, individuals and businesses using the cloud can access their data from any Internet-connected computer or device, allowing them to sync their settings and files wherever they go.

There are many benefits to using cloud services for your business. Here are 10 benefits of cloud computing that can help your business

The Benefits of Cloud Computing That Can Help Your Business


One of the most important advantages of cloud computing is its security. If you run your business on the cloud, you don’t have to worry about protecting your data from hackers or other threats.
Cloud providers use standard security practices to protect your data, including firewalls, encryption, and authentication systems.

You can further customize your company’s security settings if your company uses a private cloud. For example, if an employee loses or misplaces a device that has access to your data, you can disable that device remotely without putting your data at risk.

You can also encrypt your data to protect it from cyber threats. Businesses can also use multi-factor authentication (MFA) to further protect their data. MFA requires users to enter a one-time passcode sent to their phone to log in and confirm their identity.


Another advantage of cloud computing is its scalability. Cloud providers offer scalable cloud solutions that you can adjust to meet your business needs.

You can scale your system up or down on demand to handle seasonal traffic or unexpected spikes in usage. This helps you avoid purchasing too much computing power and resources up front and allows your business to quickly adapt to changes in demand.

You can also try out a cloud solution before committing to it by renting a smaller instance for a trial period. Cloud solutions are also flexible enough to allow you to upgrade or downgrade your solutions as your business scales up or down.

This means you don’t have to buy more computing power than you need up front, and you don’t have to upgrade your systems again if your business starts to slow down.


Cloud computing can help you achieve greater flexibility and mobility if your business depends on people working remotely. With cloud solutions, you can access your data and run your applications from any computer or internet-connected device.

When you can access all your data from anywhere, employees can work from home, coffee shops, or anywhere else without sacrificing productivity. Additionally, cloud providers offer a wide range of collaboration and communication tools that work with their services.

You can also use these tools to collaborate and communicate with customers and suppliers who don’t need access to your company’s data.

Consistent experience is a unique benefit of cloud computing

Another advantage of cloud computing is its consistency. While different people and different departments may use other devices and software, cloud solutions ensure everyone has a consistent experience.
This prevents miscommunication and ensures everyone is on the same page. Whether you use Office 365, Google G Suite, Salesforce, or another cloud service, your business will benefit from a consistent experience across all platforms.

You can also use tools, such as identity integration, to access information from different apps without switching between them.

Reduced cost is the main advantage of cloud computing

Cloud solutions offer significant cost reductions over the long term compared to other IT solutions. You can save money on hardware, upgrades and software licenses while benefiting from a flexible and scalable solution.
Cloud providers handle all the maintenance and upgrading of their systems, so you don’t have to worry about keeping up with the latest IT trends.

Cloud solutions offer significant cost reductions over the long term compared to other IT solutions. You can save money on hardware, upgrades and software licenses while benefiting from a flexible and scalable solution.

Integration with other services

You can easily integrate multiple cloud services to streamline your workflows if your business uses various cloud services.

Many cloud services have a wide range of integrations with other services that you can use to improve your business processes. For example, you can use Salesforce to manage your leads and close rates and Zapier to link it to other business tools like Gmail, Mailchimp, and Google Calendar.

You can also use a hybrid cloud solution that allows you to keep your data close to home while accessing additional IT services through the cloud.

Unlimited storage

Cloud solutions offer unlimited storage, unlike other data storage solutions such as on-premises computers. So while you can scale down your cloud solution if you don’t need that much storage for your data, you can also scale up your storage later.

You can also use a hybrid solution to keep some of your data on-premises while storing other data in the cloud.

Faster performance

Another advantage of cloud computing is faster performance. Also, if you use the cloud, you are not limited by your hardware and your systems are more scalable.

This means your website and other business applications will run faster without having to upgrade hardware.

You can also use a hybrid solution to improve your performance by keeping your most critical data close to home while accessing other data in the cloud.

Better cooperation

Cloud solutions provide an online collaborative environment that allows you to share important information with customers and suppliers. You can use collaboration tools such as wikis, blogs, and forums to work with team members and manage your projects.

You can also use collaboration tools to communicate with customers and vendors who don’t need access to your company’s data. These tools allow you to share documents, collaborate on tasks, and manage your workflow from a single platform.

disaster recovery

Even though control is an essential aspect of business success, there are some things you can’t control. Whether your organization controls its own procedures or not, there are some things that are out of your control. In today’s market, even a small downtime has a significant impact.

Business interruptions lead to lost productivity, revenue and reputation. Although you can’t prevent or foresee all disasters, there are things you can do to speed up your recovery. Cloud-based data recovery services enable rapid recovery from emergency situations, such as natural disasters and power outages.


The range of benefits of cloud computing makes it a viable solution for almost any business. It offers many benefits that can help you streamline your workflow, achieve better performance, and operate more efficiently.

By Dulya de Silva

ECONOMYNEXTSri Lanka’s new and somewhat controversial Minister of State for Tourism, Diana Gamage, is determined to press ahead with her plans to revitalize Colombo’s largely barren nightlife in a bid to attract tourists and encourage spending.

Speaking to EconomyNext, Gamage said Sri Lanka, while rich in cultural attractions to keep foreigners busy during the day, cannot compete with the vibrant nightlife offered by its competitors. Unlike countries like Singapore and Thailand, known for their street stalls and nighttime entertainment, Sri Lanka offers visitors and locals limited options in terms of things to do after dark, he said. she declared.

“Whether [tourists] want to go shopping, there is nothing open at night. They want to enjoy dancing, singing, listening to music, drinking, eating… what do we have in this country? Sri Lanka is a dead island at night,” Gamage said. The lack of entertainment options has led to an outflow of foreign currency, she said, as locals with disposable income also look to foreign destinations to spend their money.

“Sri Lankans too get their money back, convert it to dollars and go to Malaysia, Singapore or Dubai,” she said.

“They give our money to other countries. Why? Because they have nothing to appreciate in Sri Lanka.

Gamage said his critics, who often categorize the nightlife as a culture of casinos and prostitutes, cannot see the big picture. Her vision has more to do with giving people an outlet to enjoy and spend, to keep the economy going, she said.

“There should be food stalls…stores…music that people can enjoy.”

The lawmaker, from the main opposition Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB), also said culture and religion should be separated from development.

“We should have this history, we should have our culture. But that does not mean that we have to stop there and stop the development of a country.

“Every time this country has tried to develop in one way or another, people have brought forward this religious and cultural issue…today it has bankrupted us,” he said. she declared. As part of its plans to keep tourists engaged in the country, Gamage is also on a mission to change Sri Lanka’s attitude towards alcohol. The country’s current laws are too restrictive, she says.

“Sometimes people just want to go for a beer, and they can’t. We should be able to sell beer and wine in this country.

Smaller restaurants in Sri Lanka often have an easier time bribing local authorities and selling alcohol on the sly, as beer licenses are somewhat expensive and the constant refusal of tourists is bad for business. Gamage believes licensing should be more accessible to small business owners. Gamage believes it’s not too late to harness the economic benefits of a full-fledged nightlife culture and people are too narrow-minded to see it.

“I don’t know why people don’t see the opportunities we are losing. You know, we call Sri Lanka a paradise. But what paradise is closed at 10 o’clock in the evening?

EDITORIAL: It’s time to rethink the BOJ’s long-term monetary policy Sat, 24 Sep 2022 04:31:00 +0000

The global economic landscape is undergoing drastic changes triggered by a global surge in inflation.

Economic policymakers must not let outdated views prevent them from providing timely responses to these challenges. They need to keep their eye on the ball and be ready to act with agility and flexibility at all times.

On September 21, the US Federal Reserve raised interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point, three times the usual hike, for the third time in a row. Earlier this month, the European Central Bank also raised its benchmark interest rate by 0.75 percentage points.

These strong policy actions indicate that US and European central banks are determined to eliminate historically high rates of inflation, even at the risk of an economic slowdown.

On the other hand, the Bank of Japan, during its policy meeting on September 22, decided to maintain its positions super loose political stance. While energy and food prices are also rising in Japan, underlying consumer price inflation rates, excluding volatile fresh food, have remained within the 2% range, much lower than the figures for the United States or Europe, where prices are rising at annual rates. more than 8 percent. Wage growth also remains sluggish in Japan.

The BOJ is betting that inflation rates are “almost certain to fall below 2%” in the next fiscal year as energy prices peak, as Governor Haruhiko Kuroda put it. This view underpins the Japanese central bank’s policy of maintaining its ultra-accommodative monetary policy. With most private sector economists agreeing with the BOJ’s prognosis, the bank’s policy stance is reasonable for now.

The catch is that the structure of the global economy has changed dramatically due to the pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Uncertainty surrounding the global economic outlook has increased sharply.

There is a good chance that global inflationary pressures will increase or persist, depending on the future development of the US and European economies and Russia’s decisions in the months ahead. Japanese policymakers have no right to be complacent. The BOJ must learn from the costly mistake made by the Fed, which misinterpreted inflation as a temporary phenomenon.

The accelerating weakening of the yen due to differences in monetary policy stance between the West and Japan is helping to push up prices in the country.

On September 22, the government and the BOJ entered the currency market to support the falling yen by selling dollars against the Japanese currency. This was the first such intervention on the market in 24 years. The action will put some pressure on currency speculators betting on the continued decline of the yen. But its effects will be limited as the interest rate differential between Japan and the United States continues to widen.

Setting guidelines for future market operations to control the cost of borrowing at the September 22 policy meeting, the BOJ decided to keep long-term and short-term interest rates at current levels (around of zero). Kuroda said he sees no need to change this position at this time.

With inflation rising at rates above the BOJ’s 2% target due to the unpredictability of the economic climate, the BOJ’s policy for further easing is not consistent with the overall economic situation. Now is the time for the central bank to rethink its guidelines for market operations.

The BOJ has long feared that any sign of a change in its extremely accommodative monetary policy could cause the yen to appreciate.

Now, however, the BOJ itself has said that a sharp drop in the yen is undesirable. It should start discussing measures to respond to the changing situation, including a more flexible approach to monetary accommodation.

How to ensure price stability with wage growth in the current global economic turmoil is a key monetary policy challenge that will test the BOJ’s central banking prowess.

]]> Ms. Micha Rose Emmett shares her thoughts on the new CBI index and its benefits for Indian investors Fri, 23 Sep 2022 13:07:30 +0000

How will the new 2022 CBI Index transform and reshape the future prospects of citizenship through investment?

The CBI Index is a publication of PWM, a subsidiary of the Financial Times, and is a particularly important and relevant research tool for anyone looking to really understand what a CBI program can offer them. The way the CBI index is created is that there is an overall ranking and then a separate ranking of each of the nine pillars that exist. Depending on the client’s needs, they may be short on time and therefore need to find an efficient and fast citizenship option, or they may seek to find out how many family members they can add to their application. Thus, using the CBI Index as a general overview of the CBI industry, as well as examining each of the components separately, can help make better decisions when choosing another citizenship.

How will the new CBI index benefit Indian investors?

The CBI Index is designed as a handy tool, both for those who want to compare CBI programs as a whole and for those who want to compare specific aspects of each program. Some of the many ways Indian investors can benefit from alternative citizenship include, but are not limited to:

  • Increased mobility that would help them expand their access to a range of global markets.
  • The advantage of being a citizen of a country whose stable currency is pegged to the US dollar. This makes all the difference for astute entrepreneurs, as they can then make investment plans and reap the benefits without worrying too much about future shocks to the global economic system. Although several reasons contribute to overseas investments, the basic incentives are rate of return, investment policy and tax advantage. Indian HNWIs mainly invest in CBI to set up shop in another country, set up a second home and take advantage of the booming real estate market.
  • Education abroad has always been an important part of investment for many Indian families. Their children will have access to a high-level education in modern, state-of-the-art facilities.

Explain in detail the nine pillars that have defined the CBI index for different countries.

The CBI Index rates CBI programs based on these nine pillars: freedom of movement, standard of living, minimum investment, travel or residency requirement, citizenship timeline, ease of processing, due diligence, family, and product certainty.

Freedom of movement measures the relative strength of each country’s citizenship based on three equally weighted factors: the number of destinations to which a country’s passport allows unrestricted travel, the number of prime business centers to which it gives access and the extent to which a given citizenship offers rights of establishment in other countries.

The Standard of Living Pillar is a measure of the quality of life offered by the 13 CBI assessed jurisdictions and this pillar is vital for those aspiring to relocate and ensure a prosperous and fulfilling lifestyle. Likewise, it is essential for those who want to take advantage of local business opportunities or need to transfer and protect their assets.

The Minimum Capital Expenditure pillar measures one of CBI’s most practical and important considerations – the amount of capital required for the investor to become an eligible applicant for the program of their choice. The cost of applying for CBI increases with the number of dependents – or eligible family members – included in an application. In some jurisdictions, this increase is proportional, while in others the cost only increases as a result of the inclusion of multiple dependents.

Mandatory Travel or Residence examines the travel or residence requirements imposed on applicants before and after the grant of citizenship.

The Citizenship Timeline pillar examines the average time it takes for citizenship to be obtained by the applicant.

The Ease of Processing pillar measures the end-to-end complexity of the CBI application process. In some jurisdictions, the application process can be a cumbersome and tedious task that takes time for the applicant; in others, it is streamlined and the applicant receives clear instructions on what to do. The overall simplicity of the application process is particularly important, and the promise of a smooth and hassle-free process can generate willingness to commit to a program. The Due Diligence Pillar focuses on each nation’s commitment to ensuring that its program remains transparent and efficient in assessing potential applicants for citizenship. It is therefore a measure of the integrity of each program.

The Family Pillar measures the extent to which investors can obtain citizenship for their immediate and extended family. The CBI Index recognizes that the rise of increasingly complex family relationships is driving investors to seek programs that allow a more diverse range of family members to be included in a primary application.

Finally, product certainty encompasses a series of factors that measure the certainty of a program across five different dimensions: longevity, popularity and fame, stability, reputation, and adaptability. Additionally, it assesses a program’s responsiveness to major global events, such as the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine, which have had a significant impact on global mobility and due diligence requirements.

How are Indian families and investors improving their global mobility through citizenship by investment?

By having an alternative citizenship, especially one that provides access to global business hubs, it allows Indian families and investors to have a much wider reach globally, conduct their business, attend schools and even in the case of medical tourism if they need it. rush to Singapore for an urgent operation. Having that flexibility of knowing that you have citizenship, which allows you access to a country to visit for those purposes, becomes very valuable.

Share a brief summary of your geographic expansions, if any

At CSGP we find it particularly important to understand our local or regional market and so we are careful not to jump into a market until we have a good understanding of the customer’s pain points, looking for the potential of the market and market demand. We’ve noticed there are changes in a few markets that were previously less exciting, and a lot of that is because Covid has caused a huge shift in the way we think about freedom, opportunity and access. Therefore, we find that jurisdictions that were less inclined to consider alternative citizenship in the past have become more interested in it and, in particular, I would include the Indian market in this area. That said, we have several new locations that we are looking to expand into.

Your thoughts on market analysis for 2022.

The start of 2022 seemed filled with brightness and excitement and the promise that it would be a better year than the previous two, but with the war in Ukraine and the energy crisis, married to the politics of division, 2022 turned out to be be very different from what we had anticipated. In our industry this means an opportunity as people look at the inner workings of their environment to understand what is going on in their environment and often when things are not going well they then look outside their borders to see where other opportunities lie. Of course, the countries we deal with specifically have had a very bright and prosperous 2022 so far, so they become interesting and exciting opportunities for future growth.

]]> Study finds COVID-19 pandemic has pushed physician burnout to an all-time high Tue, 20 Sep 2022 20:58:24 +0000

September 20, 2022

The rate of physician burnout in the United States increased dramatically during the first two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a study recently published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. The researchers found that 2020 marks the end of a six-year period of decline in the overall rate of burnout among physicians. At the end of 2021, after 21 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the rate of physician burnout significantly reached a new high that was higher than previously monitored by researchers. The overall prevalence of burnout among U.S. physicians rose to 62.8% in 2021 from 38.2%.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated many of the factors of physician burnout. Research has shown that due to COVID-related stress, 1 in 5 physicians intend to leave their current practice within 2 years.

“As the worst days of the COVID-19 pandemic are hopefully behind us, there is an urgent need to deal with the doctors who have put their all into our country’s response to COVID-19, too often to the detriment their own well-being,” said Jack Resneck Jr., MD, president of the American Medical Association (AMA)

The new research on physician burnout builds on landmark studies conducted at regular intervals between 2011 and 2021 by researchers at the AMA, Mayo Clinic and Stanford Medicine. Together, these studies found that the overall prevalence of burnout among American physicians was 62.8% in 2021, compared to 38.2% in 2020, 43.9% in 2017, 54.4% in 2014, and 45.5% in 2011. Each study has consistently shown that the overall prevalence of burnout among physicians was higher compared to the US workforce.

The sober results demand urgent action to support physicians by removing barriers and burdens that interfere with patient care and prioritizing physician well-being as essential requirements for achieving national health goals.

]]> The 6 Best Bitcoin Mining Software Sun, 18 Sep 2022 18:00:00 +0000

The Bitcoin mining industry is huge, with approximately one million miners worldwide working to verify blocks and get new coins into circulation. This business can earn you a handsome profit, but having the right hardware and software is important. With that in mind, it’s time to take a look at the best bitcoin mining software currently available.

Developed in 2011, CGMiner has become one of the most popular bitcoin mining programs on the market today. It is also one of the oldest bitcoin mining programs still in existence. Although its website might look pretty basic, don’t worry. There are a number of reasons why CGMiner may be the perfect bitcoin mining software for you.

First, CGMiner is compatible with a range of different hardware types, including ASIC miners and GPUs. Although bitcoin mining is mostly done using ASICs these days, it is still good to know that there is also an option for GPU mining on CGMiner. CGMiner also supports a range of other coins for mining, such as Dogecoin, which can be mined using GPUs. This program also supports FPGAs.

Although CGMiner is completely free to download, it is not really suitable for beginners. Indeed, instead of a simple graphical interface, CGMiner uses a command line interface, which can be difficult to understand. However, CGMiner is open source, allowing users to eliminate bugs, make changes, and have a more flexible overall experience.

To download: CGMiner for Windows (Free)

Unlike CGMiner, EasyMiner is a great choice for those new to Bitcoin mining or those with limited technical knowledge. This is mainly because it uses a graphical interface which is generally much easier to navigate. Like CGMiner, EasyMiner is also open source, which gives the user more flexibility and increased security (because the community can tackle bugs and vulnerabilities quickly).

EasyMiner supports Bitcoin and Litecoin mining and allows users to mine using CPUs, GPUs and ASICs. You can even mine Bitcoin and Litecoin simultaneously using EasyMiner. It’s also easy to view key stats, such as your overall profits or hardware hash rate, on the EasyMiner interface. And, if you ever run into any problems while using EasyMiner, you can find help from the community in the program’s chat window.

Plus, EasyMiner is totally free! You can use it for both solo and pool mining while benefiting from the extra layer of security that EasyMiner provides to its users through its servers.

Awesome Miner is especially useful for those with a larger mining operation or those who want to mix and match their mining hardware. In fact, Awesome Miner is scalable up to 200,000 ASICs and 25,000 CPUs or GPUs!

Awesome Miner is completely free and supports both Windows and Linux. However, macOS is not supported by Awesome Miner, although a web version is available for those not using a proper operating system. This program is also not ideal for beginners, as its interface can be a bit overwhelming or intimidating.

But Awesome Miner’s interface is incredibly useful, displaying various key stats like hash rate, hardware temperature, and your overall earnings. You can also view all of your connected mining devices on one screen, making it easy to keep track of all of your operations.

To download: Awesome Miner for Windows (Free)

ECOS is another great option for mining Bitcoin, especially if you’re not very tech-savvy. Indeed, the ECOS interface is easy to use. However, ECOS is different from the previously mentioned programs in that it is a cloud mining platform.

ECOS offers cloud mining for those who do not have the hardware to directly mine crypto. In this process, you enter into a mining contract and pay a fee for remote miners to make a profit for you. The platform offers various mining contracts, the duration of which you can change to your liking. Using ECOS’ cloud mining calculator, you can visualize your potential profits based on the price of Bitcoin, the length of your contract, and the power you want to use.

Although ECOS is a reputable company, it should be noted that cloud mining scams are commonplace in the crypto industry, so beware of what you are signing up for. In addition to this, ECOS also offers its users the ability to trade cryptocurrencies through the ECOS exchange app.

To download: OSCE for Android | iOS (both free)

BFG Miner is a great mining program for more experienced miners, as it uses a command-line interface, which can be tricky to navigate. BFG Miner is designed for ASIC and FPGA mining and can even be used on a Raspberry Pi. But if you’re looking to mine GPUs, consider one of the other software listed here.

Some of the best features offered by BFG Miner are its advanced synchronization and high-end operation monitoring. It is also a great program for pool mining and supports both Windows and Linux. You can even manage your mining hardware remotely using BFG Miner. And, like the other programs mentioned here, BFG Miner is free.

The Value Implications of Ethics in the Metaverse Tue, 06 Sep 2022 14:42:29 +0000

Jhe metaverse is not yet a concrete reality, but there is no denying that its vision as an immersive 3D world will affect all aspects of our personal and professional lives, from socializing and working to entertainment, learning and even more.

Any activity you currently do in physical space can be done virtually; and will allow activities that are currently limited in physical space (like flying like a bird). In addition, not only will you be able to interact between different virtual spaces, but these virtual spaces will also interact with and impact the physical spaces as well. Although it may seem impossible, almost everything we imagined has come true.

The metaverse opens up a range of opportunities, as well as a number of risks and a variety of issues and ethical concerns. Most ethical concerns are issues we have encountered in our non-digital lives, such as privacy, socio-economic inequalities, accessibility, identity control, freedom of creative expression, etc.. These are not new issues; they just reflect society as it is.

Ethical issues have existed for centuries, and humanity has only recently begun to address them. With this new technology, new concerns may emerge, such as access to biometric data or brain waves, which could be unscrupulously used to control people’s thoughts and behavior; or using multiple (and different) identities on multiple (and different) metaverse spaces.

Data is more than text and images

Biometric data

Biometric data is already available via virtual reality headsets; it refers to data that can track a user’s surroundings, physical movements, and dimensions. Through headsets and goggles that let people access the metaverse, companies can track eye movements; in which virtual environments a person goes; what body movements they make; how long they stay in an environment; and their physiological response to an experience, such as their heart rate.

There have been several incidents in recent years where apps have exposed personal and even medical information of millions of Americans, in one instance even exposing patients’ HIV-positive status.

This is undoubtedly very private and sensitive data that should be under the control of the individual, and the individual should have the ability to decide whether or not to share this data and with whom. If companies have access to this data, they must ensure that they not only secure it, but also use it appropriately to help the individual or improve their skills, rather than manipulating the data or using it for their own purposes. profit.

BCI brain waves

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) will soon be a way to access the metaverse. BCIs can be worn on the head like headphones, on the wrist or through glasses. BCI technology tracks brain wave patterns and infers thought processes through machine learning algorithms. A direct link to someone’s brain opens up new types of data to collect and analyze. Having control of people’s brains through their thoughts and behaviors can be devastating, even deadly, if used without scruples.

Brain-computer interface companies such as Neurosity have designed their headsets with safety in mind: “Brainwaves are automatically translated into encrypted metadata by the N1 chipset.” Therefore, if the person is using Neurosity headsets in the metaverse, marketers will be able to tell how someone is accessing it, whether through VR headsets, AR glasses, or BCIs, but personal thought patterns must be protected.

Deepfakes and alternative representations of reality

Companies will need to invest in cybersecurity to avoid data scandals and potential brand manipulation. Deepfakes, hacked avatars, and manipulated objects are some of the types of malicious behavior companies will need to watch out for.

For example, MIT and Mozilla released a deepfake video that shows President Nixon announcing that Apollo 11 had failed its mission to the moon. This video of a kind of alternate reality has received a lot of coverage and helped to deepen the conversation about deepfakes and ethics.

Protect digital twins

In the metaverse, it is not only people who will be virtualized, but also physical objects. For example, buildings, objects in the house, items in a store will all be digitally represented through a virtual twin in the metaverse. This virtual representation raises some ethical concerns:

  • Who will decide which of these objects are acceptable to be recreated digitally? Would it be regulated? Or open to creative freedom?
  • Could anyone see a virtual twin in the metaverse? For example, if a house with all of its personal items is in the metaverse, could anyone enter it or only the real owners? And if it’s just the real owners, how would that be overseen and monitored?

Protecting Children in the Metaverse

What happens in the metaverse doesn’t stay in the metaverse. We already know that what people experience in virtual reality impacts their memory, can desensitize them, or make them feel like they’ve done something before, even if they’ve never done it in reality. Marketing to children should be treated with much more care than marketing to adults, and especially in the metaverse.

Theoretically, anyone can be anything in the metaverse, but it’s still important to know key information, like a person’s age. Even if someone looks like an adult in the metaverse, companies are responsible for identifying whether they are dealing with an actual adult or a child. The responsibility should lie with the company and not with the user.

Identity and ethical concerns

Anyone can use any avatar to build their identity on the metaverse, because creative freedom knows no bounds on the platform. Freedom of creative expression allows people to choose between avatars regardless of background, but not all avatars are in equal demand. According to research, dark-skinned and female avatars are in less demand among users, raising concerns about racial and gender representation in the metaverse, which could also be related to lack of access for certain populations.

Discrimination based on race and gender is not a new problem. In an environment where individuals are free to choose what their avatar would look like, the decision may be based on unintended inherent colorism and sexism, which endangers representation in the metaverse, especially in combination with unequal access to these virtual spaces.

The main concern is that brands might be able to break out of the diversity agenda that many are required to enforce in real life, which could create two possible outcomes:

  • One possibility: Brands can abandon this agenda and recruit only a particular type of visual on the metaverse. This would harm a balanced representation in the metaverse and contradict its own values.
  • The second possibility: Brands may be able to use the metaverse to disguise their true intentions of not adhering to genuine equality policies in real life. The metaverse can serve as a facade to hide their lack of diversity, which could seriously harm society and all the progress we’ve fought for.

Reputation risk and value implications

If you want to invest in the metaverse, you can do one of the following:

  • Invest in metaverse applications traded on a crypto exchange such as Decentraland with the token symbol MANA; or the sandbox with the symbolic symbol SAND
  • If you are not into crypto and prefer to use traditional financial products, there are several metaverse funds issued and managed by different financial institutions. Examples are metaverse funds managed by HSBC, Fidelity, Axa Investment Management and Invesco. There are also exchange-traded funds (ETFs), such as VERS or FMET.

As you compare and walk through the investment decision-making process – looking at the components (i.e. the companies that make up the fund or ETF) – you should, among other things, consider any risk reputation that may derive from a company. or a brand that does not respect the ethical concerns mentioned above.

This may not be reflected in the company’s current value, but may have future implications, if the company (or brand) neglects to address them. Do your due diligence and look beyond the hype associated with the metaverse.
