A step in the digital world
Firstly, Barbados has become the first sovereign nation. Secondly, having an embassy in the meta verse. Above all, Barbados is planning to legally declare real estate in the digital world. By establishing an embassy in the metaverse.
Also, the Barbarian government is planning to finalise agreements with other metaverse platforms. Like Somnium space, Superworld and others.
Furthermore, Barbados working on projects. But that would be focused on the creation of virtual embassies, providing “e-visas” etc.
Besides, from next week Barbados will begin a new National journey. By removing nagging British impact. It’s going to break the nearly 400 years long bond with Britain.
