Sheikh Hamdan highlighted that there are presently 1,000 companies in the Metaverse sector alone in Dubai and called the metaverse as the next revolution, which will impact all aspects of life in the next two decades. They also contribute $500 million to our national economy, and he expects it to rise strongly in the coming period.

The strategy strives to exponentially raise the number of blockchain and metaverse firms five times in five years while introducing 40,000 virtual jobs, which will contribute $4 billion towards the economy of Dubai.

He further added our objective by establishing an integrated plan for metaverse at this early time for this technology to be among the leading ten cities that will shape this sector worldwide. Dubai was and will remain a precedent for others in the world because Mohammed bin Rashid has proven to the world many times the correctness of his future and development vision that made Dubai.
