What are the prospects? The president has instructed officials to develop a concept for a forum on virtual space. A seminar is expected to consider the economic elements of the metaverse, cryptocurrencies, and social media. The reason for this interest may have been the increasing interest in virtual lands that unite the physical and virtual worlds through augmented reality.

Mustafa Elitaş, leader of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, said:

“I believe that metaverse-based gatherings will be developed quickly and become a fundamental part of our life.”
