The virtual world of the Metaverse is not only planned as the next step for commercialism, but also a step for hiring. With the digital world swiftly approaching, many digital companies are looking for virtual employees, and Dubai is casting a wide net.
Dubai Metaverse plans to hire 40,000 people
Via Bloomberg, the Dubai government is aiming to take over the Metaverse market with its official Metaverse projects. Similar to American states like Carlifornia, the Dubai Metaverse is an official virtual world that anyone will be able to access.
Backed by Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, the virtual Metaverse is becoming a huge focus of the country’s economy. With many blockchain companies working out of the region, Hamdan bin Mohammed is hoping to support that market.
In a tweet, the Crown Prince stated: “We launched the Dubai Metaverse Strategy today, which aims to foster innovation in new technology. Dubai is home to over 1,000 companies operating in the metaverse and blockchain sector, which contributes $500 million to our national economy.”
In an official capacity, it would appear that the government is also attempting to cultivate itself as a major Metaverse market. The area wishes to invest heavily in the industry, propping up Metaverse companies for massive growth.
Building Digital Cities
Alongside the announcement, the Dubai government explained that it working hard to create virtual cities. Instead of small virtual worlds, the government is hoping to create full-scale cities in the Metaverse.
What these City recreations will be used for is as of yet undetermined. However, if it’s similar to South Korea, they could be intriguing virtual tourist spots. A virtual trip to Dubai anyone?
