Open Source Metaverse
Dec 09, 9:30AM to Dec 16 , 5:30PM BST

About this Event


The Open Source Metaverse event discusses the important topic of open source in the metaverse. Although open source will inevitably be a part of the metaverse—a world without open-source code is simply impossible—to what degree will Big Brother allow core technologies of it to be open-sourced? Are we headed for an Orwellian control state with a closed-source metaverse?

CloudBeam will take up these topics as well as provide a basic understanding of the metaverse to anyone who wishes to know more about it. 


Who should attend:


The program is particularly suited for:

  • Open-source developers and professionals
  • Technology experts
  • Internet companies
  • VR, AR, XR enthusiasts
  • Cryptocurrency enthusiasts
  • Investors (angel, VC)
  • VC firms
  • Anyone interested in the metaverse

What are the benefits:

  • Know the implications of a closed-source versus an open-source metaverse.
  • See how open-source will increase financial opportunities, rather than decrease them.
  • Understand the basics of building a business around the metaverse.
