Yat Siu

Why the internet needs a Magna Carta moment, with Yat Siu
July 11, 2023
Leo Nasskau

Yat Siu has a completely different vision for the metaverse to almost everyone else. And at the helm of an investment portfolio worth $5 billion, his perspective is as important as it is empowering.

Today, his vision for the metaverse revolves around digital property rights. He doesn’t emphasise meeting your friends in virtual reality like Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta does, nor does he emphasise immersive experiences in a headset like Apple’s Vision Pro. Instead, he envisions an internet where anyone can own their own assets, in the same way we own things in the real world, and from that, a vast and prosperous digital economy can emerge that works for everyone.

We speak about how his vision of the metaverse is different, and why it’s going to win.
