What is known about Baidu's metaverse? The project, called XiRang, is currently in the initial stage of development. The open source platform can host up to 100 000 users at a time, but so far there have been glitches with the uploading of avatars and virtual spaces.

According to Baidu vice president Ma Jie, the Chinese metaverse has no plans to use cryptocurrencies or speculative assets in the form of virtual real estate. At that, the platform will be based on a technology “similar to blockchain.”
