Experts explain how Thailand can use Metaverse for tourism, business and education

He said that initially a pilot project will be created to promote two minor provinces, adding that the picture will be clearer in two months.

Pathom Indarodom, vice president of the Digital Council of Thailand, said that although the country’s digital infrastructure is as good as any other country, Thailand is still ranked 53rd out of 65 countries when it comes to preparing for the future.

He blamed this on Thai people’s lack of interest in learning new things and adopting new technologies for application in the business sector.

Pathom said Thailand was still in the Metaverse 1.0 era where we had to wear heavy virtual reality (VR) glasses, but companies like Elon Musk’s Neuralink broke barriers by creating an interface between the brain humans and computers.

He said that very soon everything in the real world will be available in the virtual world and people will be able to enter the metaverse without any equipment.

However, he said, he was concerned about Thailand’s inability to compete with other countries due to local people’s attitude towards the digital world.

Blockchain Prime Holding co-founder Pongbol Iemvicharana hailed the development of the Social Bureau: Decentralized Justice System, saying the metaverse will make it difficult to identify people and open the door for hacking. With this judicial system in place, the bureau can track down the culprits and punish them, but he said the information should also be made available to the public. That way, he said, the public can have data in hand and protect themselves when making transactions.

Trikun Srihongse, Country Director of Zipmex, said his company’s goal is to revolutionize investing in digital assets for decentralized financial services. They will apply blockchain and crypto technology to access finance more easily, while NFTs (non-fungible assets) will play a bigger role once the metaverse grows.
