Since 2021, the technology application and industrial investment around the metasexes have increasingly become the focus of social attention.Foreign tech companies such as Microsoft, Nvidia and Facebook are already developing products related to metasexes ecology.The topic of meta-universe has become a new hot spot in the development of digital economy and the forefront of the application of digital government affairs.From a science fiction concept to a realistic application, the meta-universe will form a virtual world that maps and interacts with the real world.At the same time, some criminals will also take the opportunity to use, binding, or even fictional “meta-universe” concept, engaged in illegal and criminal activities.Therefore, it is necessary to correctly understand the development of the meta-universe, and at the same time, carefully judge the various risks brought by it, and arrange the management plan in advance.The meta-universe is an audio-visual enhancement of cyberspace and an upgraded version of the evolution of the digital world from two-dimensional to three-dimensional.In the virtual world of the meta-universe, users can produce, use and trade items that are difficult to obtain or even unavailable offline, and can enjoy experiences that are difficult or impossible to enjoy offline, which may promote the emergence of a new social structure and social order.The meta-universe operated by Internet companies can become an autonomous cyber society separated from the traditional state in the real world.Compared with the existing network, the meta-universe has made new breakthroughs in interaction mode, content production, property right recognition and interaction, and can realize independent economic system, social system and identity system.Each user is immersed in the meta-universe, doing content production and editing, and experiencing work and life. In the long run, they may be “decouple” from the real world and become a “citizen” of the meta-universe.The metasexes have yet to bring completely independent new technologies, and still rely on the convergence and integration of existing technologies such as big data, cloud computing, blockchain, virtual reality, augmented reality and digital twin.On the one hand, under the impetus of scenario application, different technologies are likely to change from quantitative to qualitative in the process of combination and fusion, promoting new technological change.On the other hand, the risks of various technologies will also pile up, giving rise to new types of risks.Possible risks in the development of the meta-universe The virtual world of the meta-universe runs parallel to the real world and provides users with twin mirrors and immersive experiences similar to the real world.There will be new problems of technological convergence and reordering, and old problems of the real world will be projected.In the process of the development of the meta-universe, if the governance measures are not in place, the following risks may occur: the risk of overlaying sovereign authority and endangering network data security.Metasurverse platform rules cross offline physical boundaries, effectively affecting users in many countries and potentially undermining national and government authority.In addition, in the meta-cosmic ecology, the invasion of citizens’ personal information and hacking attacks in cyberspace in general are still possible.Given the richer production and life scenes in the meta-universe and the digitalization of the whole process of users’ activity tracks, the occurrence of destructive events may be stronger, more widespread and more harmful.The transnational operation characteristics of the meta-universe itself will also bring frequent user data outbound security issues.As NFT(non-homogeneous token), virtual currency and other new digital properties have a wider space for investment and transaction, it is easy to provide channels for new forms of money laundering, gambling, fraud, pyramid selling and other illegal and criminal activities.Risks to users’ physical and mental health and social order.The application of meta-universe is inseparable from all kinds of smart wearable devices. Long-term device wearing and interface access will bring physical and mental harm to users, and we need to pay attention to the adverse consequences such as digital addiction of minors.Further, in the meta-universe ecosystem, the trend of social, intelligent, personalized and fragmented content production is more significant, and order management becomes more difficult.On the other hand, the discourse system and value orientation of the specific application of the meta-universe are still affected by the community rules, business models and algorithms formulated by the platform operators, and the behavior patterns of early users, and there are risks of cognitive solidification, “information cocoon”, “echo chamber effect”, and “filter bubble” to a deeper level.Risk of infringement of individual rights, impact on ecological and energy security.Compared with the existing network platform, it is easier to form a closed loop of the metasurverse ecology, and it is more difficult for different metasurverse to communicate with each other.The rights and interests of laborers, consumers and operators in the metacosmic ecology may be infringed.Speculation and speculation with the help of the concept of the meta-universe will also disrupt the normal economic order.The meta-universe requires a large amount of computing power resources and consumes a lot of energy and carbon emissions. If it is allowed to develop blindly and disorderly, it will also adversely affect the high-quality development of economic society and energy conservation and emission reduction.As an emerging form of business, the meta-universe is full of vigor for technological innovation and rich potential for application and innovation. It will also have a huge impact on the economy and society.Therefore, it is important not only to recognize the metasomes as a new competitive field with potential strategic significance, but also to take measures in advance against possible security risks and strictly guard against various “gray rhinos” and “black swans” events.First, we will strengthen law-based governance, risk management and comprehensive governance.By elaborating on the extended application of laws in the field of cyber governance, such as the Cyber Security Law, the Data Security Law and the Personal Information Protection Law, it has drawn a red line and pointed out the direction for the development of the metasomes.Make an in-depth, dynamic and comprehensive assessment of the specific risks in the main application scenarios of the metasomes, investigate the development situation and trends of the metasome-related industries, formulate and reserve targeted, inclusive and forward-looking legal policies, and strive to master the rule-making rights and the dominant rights of international discourse in the future metasomes technological competition field.We will strengthen technological governance and promote compliance and supervision technologies that adapt to the development of the meta-universe.Second, we need to strengthen overall planning and coordination, identify leading departments and form cross-departmental coordination mechanisms, and actively address cross-industry, trans-regional and trans-national issues in meta-cosmic governance to ensure the stability of relevant industrial and supply chains.At a stage when the development model and path are still immature and the international competitive advantage is yet to be established, we will pay attention to the spillover effects of regulatory measures. While resolutely and severely cracking down on illegal and criminal activities, we will prudently introduce policies that have a shrinking effect, and focus on making full use of flexible regulatory means such as filing, publicity and releasing best practices.To ensure the correct development direction of the innovation chain by issuing policy guidelines;Do a good job of risk warning and legal education, education and guide the masses to improve the self-discipline consciousness to deal with the meta-universe addiction and identify the meta-universe speculation in the name of the implementation of fraud.Third, grasp the general trend, a good first move.Make full use of global resources, advance the layout of key links with high certainty, and increase the layout of key technologies such as chips and Gpus.The green energy system for the metaseismic will be deployed in advance, and the construction of related facilities and capabilities will be accelerated.Insist on doing something and not doing something, focus on the selection of beneficial fields represented by business, tourism, culture, education, pension, etc., and actively implement virtual reality and augmented reality application scenarios.We will invigorate culture through the application of the meta-universe, and promote the in-depth integration of the real economy and the digital economy.
