It takes a village to raise a child, even in the Metaverse.

O.K., I’m going to put my mom hat on here.

But seriously WTF?!

It takes a village to raise a child.

  • For example, Citi Group — recently reported a projection that the Metaverse economy will be as large as $13T by 2030.
  • Claims that the virtual world will be the next generation of the internet with up to five billion users.
  • Snoop Dog’s latest music video and his investments in Metaverse real estate.
  • Mila Kunis’s crypto-vision debuted last summer, when she crowdfunded her animated series “Stoner Cats” through an NFT collection, token-gating the episodes powered by Ethereum.
  • Gwenyth Paltrow’s adventures with the Bored Ape Yacht Club and — BFF — her Web3.0 community for female identifying individuals pushing NFTs and crypto like it is the new Tupperware.
  • Even the UK’s very own, “highly trusted”, Chancellor of the Ex-Chequer, Rishi Sunak wants Britain to be a global hub for crypto in preparation for a future of digital virtual worlds that intersect with our physical worlds.

One female participant compared it to being in an abusive relationship that she just can’t get out of.

Raising the village alarm.

Like tigers backed into their cage, they will strike and they will demand technology that allows them to live their lives with the freedom to be healthy, balanced and happy individuals. Sadly, and at this point, not for themselves but for their children.
