He is also the author of The Hunt for Unicorns: How Sovereign Funds are Reshaping Investment in the Digital Economy and The Digital Silk Road: China’s New Growth Story.“Metaverse is really just shorthand for an entire set of decentralized and distributed technologies, including AI, GAI, blockchain, tokenization, AR, VR and interactive, immersive, experiential XR media and Web3, which in various combinations will be applied in multiple ways in every field of human endeavor, we believe,” Ma said.

“No region on Earth and no economic or societal realm can be left behind in the transformative Metaverse economy.
