When asked about how we should deal with bad actors in the context of the metaverse, Poran opined:

“Don’t try to fix scammers, Nazis or terrorists. They will stay. They existed before the Internet and will exist after.”

However, this does not mean that the problem cannot be solved. “There is one aspect that we, as platform providers, can do is education,” Taylor said. “And just constant education. It will never be enough.”
