I’d like to propose we think forward and create some sort of system to protect children moving forward. The pseudo-anonymity of a user being known only by their name/eth account may cover most of what COPA (Child Online Protection Act) intended around identity. However, the metaverse is an interesting place but not all is wholesome for kids.
To put it plainly, I would like to be able to flag an account I make as a child (13 or under) which instigates a few rules.
No gambling, but the atari arcade would be fine.
Locations are whitelisted as kid friendly. Non whitelisted locations would cause the glowing do not enter walls to pop up.
Friends only communication enabled by default.
It could be cool if there was a wearable they couldn’t take off, instead of a flag on their file. That way others could see they were a kid too and act appropriately (or maybe that makes it easier for predators to target… unsure).
Anyway, right now it feels a bit like burningman. Oh look at that awesome art! Oh this thing actually works sooo cool. Huh. Wonder what these chickens are abou-OMG that is DEFINITELY tentacle porn.
I don’t want my kids seeing that Thoughts?
