Ajman Police Breaks History as it Offers Services to Customers in the Metaverse
The Dubai Ajman Police has launched a capability to offer customer service through the metaverse. Interesting times are here
In what comes as a pioneering move, the Dubai Ajman Police force has announced it will start offering services to its customers in the metaverse.
Announced through the official Twitter account of the Ajman Police force, the move is adjudged as the first of its kind in the world.
With the United Arab Emirates taking the front lead in most innovations bordering around the metaverse, the Ajman Police’s move to offer customer service in the virtual world is untested water, one which will enable complainants to connect with the police through their digital Avatars.
Per the announcement, the Ajman Police put forth the “Request for Sponsorship” for the metaverse offering at the Dubai Gitex Global 2022 event. The metaverse communication offering is one of 70 related next-generation services that the police force has introduced using the latest programming languages around today.
As a mini global village, the metaverse offering can be accessed through multiple languages including Arabic, English, Russian, German, Chinese, French, and Spanish.
As a city in the UAE, Dubai has a very aggressive digital transformation agenda and it has been doing all it can in terms of dolling out the right regulations to help it stand out.
With the city’s blockchain ecosystem projected to be worth more than $100 million by 2025, most of the positive stance of the City has been reflected in the establishment of the Dubai Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA), an agency that is in charge of licensing crypto assets service providers looking to do business in the city.
Notably, VARA has gotten its hands pretty full and besides the Binance exchange, the agency has been granting approval to many crypto firms to operate on its shores. The forward-thinking approach of Dubai is a subset of the vision of the country to be a major hub for crypto-related initiatives in the Middle East and the world at large.
