Can you truly own anything in the metaverse? A law professor explains how blockchains and NFTs don’t protect virtual property

João Marinotti , Indiana University In 2021, an investment firm bought 2,000 acres of real estate for about US$4 million. Normally this would not make headlines, but in this case the land was virtual. It existed only in a metaverse platform called The Sandbox . By buying 792 non-fungible tokens on the Ethereum blockchain , the firm then owned the equivalent of 1,200 city blocks. But did it? It turns out that legal ownership in the metaverse is not that simple. The prevailing but legally problematic narrative among crypto enthusiasts is that NFTs allow true ownership of digital items in the metaverse for two reasons: decentralization and interoperability. These two technological features have led some to claim that tokens provide indisputable proof of ownership , which can be used across various metaverse apps, environments and games. Because of this decentralization, some also claim that buying and selling virtual items can be done on the blockchain itself for whatever price y

Behind the crypto hype is an ideology of social change

  For some, promoting cryptocurrencies is political activism. Vasil Dimitrov/E+ via Getty Images Rick Wash , Michigan State University Ads for blockchain, NFTs and cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin seem to be everywhere. Crypto technologies are being promoted as a replacement for banks ; a new way to buy art ; the next big investment opportunity , and an essential part of the metaverse . To many, these technologies are confusing or risky . But enthusiasts ardently promote them . As a cybersecurity and social media researcher , I’ve found that behind the hype is an ideology about social change: Hardcore enthusiasts argue that crypto will get people to trust in technology rather than government , which they see as inherently untrustworthy.

Foreign exchange rates and factors that cause them to change

Foreign exchange rates are a good indicator of the health of a country's economy. Its exchange rate has a significant impact on the volume of trade it conducts. As a result, government agencies are constantly monitoring, analyzing, and, yes, manipulating rates. These rates can have a negative impact on individual investors' portfolios. The main cause of currency rate fluctuations is international trade. A rising currency rate means higher export prices and lower import prices on the international market.
