Tuvalu’s Minister for Justice, Communication and Foreign Affairs Simon Kofe says the Pacific island nation will become the world’s “first digital nation” as it is recreating itself in the metaverse to prepare for the worse amid rising sea levels.
The Island nation will recreate itself “in the cloud”, “piece by piece” to preserve the island and maintain sovereignty.
Rising Sea Levels
“And to keep them safe from harm no matter what happens in the physical world, we’ll move them to the cloud”, Kofe continued.
The islands of Tuvalu, like the one the Minister is seen standing on, will not survive “rapid temperature increases, rising sea levels and droughts”.
