Heated discussions about the metaverse often revolve around the linkage between the virtual world and physical world, Chen said. The metaverse is not designed to replace offline experiences but rather utilize enhanced online experiences to bring people closer to each other so that it makes the virtual experiences better, Chen explained in his speech.

“It’s like you snap your fingers, and then your families and friends will be teleported to your living room regardless where you are,” he said.
