Barbados to Become First Country with Virtual Metaverse Embassy [Tweet]

Barbados, a small Caribbean island, has expanded its diplomatic reach into the digital realm, signing a deal with a blockchain-based platform to build a digital embassy, a first for sovereign governments.

The Barbadian government officially signed an agreement to establish a digital embassy in Decentraland, a user-owned, Ethereum-based digital environment, on Sunday, CoinDesk reported, citing the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade. The tech platform also noted the move in a tweet.

The island does not plan to stop its digital expansion at that, and is ironing out details for similar deals with a number of other virtual reality platforms, including Somnium Space and SuperWorld, according to the ministry.
