Countries Moving Towards Digital Nation

The concept of a digital network state is appealing to me, I see the limitation we experience in physical nations eliminated in the sense that, it will no longer be about migrating to developed countries for a better life, a better life can be built in a digital nation and that nation or nations becoming the place to be.

With a thriving digital nation, people can either move to physical nations conducive to residence or better still provided funds are available people can build for themselves the kind of physical lifestyle they want in their present geographical location. What anyone wishes for in society are security, a less crime society, and good roads with basic amenities like water and electricity.
For these reasons I find digital nation-states to be not only a concept but a world that we are advancing towards. Perhaps this is the metaverse we often talk about.

This is a concept not only appealing to individuals, Countries are starting to explore the digital nation possibility.

Tuvalu is an island with a population of around 12,000 in the South Pacific Island. The United Nations classified the island as “extremely vulnerable” to climate change. There is a fear that the island might get submerged in the ocean due to the rising sea level.

It is scary enough for a country to be hit by stormy weather, and earthquakes let alone submerged in the ocean, it is crazy how natural disasters can one day destructively alter the course of lives.

With climate change being the cause of rising sea levels and the possible submerging of Tuvalu, the Island's Minister of Foreign Affairs Simon Kofe gave a speech while standing in an ocean to create awareness.

To preserve the culture, and what the country means to them, the country is exploring the creation of a digital Tuvalu so there is something to remember when their Island does get submerged. It is a sad situation that a nation is up against a natural disaster of this kind, the idea of a digital nation isn't going to replace the physical, and realistically it will be nothing like the physical but it does help preserve the nation for generations to see how Tuvalu looked like before submerging (hopefully that shouldn't happen) and there could be possibilities of the digital nation excelling in various aspects economically depending on the goals and what the nation aims to achieve.

On the brighter side, Seongnam city of South Korea plans to recreate its town in the digital world with the capital city Seoul existing in the metaverse.

By the looks, a digital nation-state is not only being explored by individuals or companies, countries are beginning to toy with this option which could probably be a norm in the future.

A digital nation wow. That's a great idea to preserve their culture and nation, given that they can't do much to stop the climate change effect.

We are looking into a very interesting future here and I am really curious about how everything is going to function in the end.

I also wonder if this metaverse technology would go as far as having to go on holiday to a digital destination especially if more parts of the world could adopt a similar thing. Lol.

And I read that the Ajman police plan to become the first police agency to provide its services through metaverse tech. So it means the Police will monitor people in the virtual world too. Are we looking to put them in a digital jail too? Hehe probably be restricted to do much in a digital world. Interesting times!

A digital network state is an interesting concept that am very keen on, it is a concept that is already taking shape to bring it to life in the digital world.

No doubt digital nations are going to be nothing like physical but on the economic side we might have digital nations outperforming physical economic nations.

Lol, people are not going to be jailed for breaking the rules in digital nations, there are going to be penalties, if we use Hive for example, people get downvoted for breaking the rules which would caused the community avoiding such person, so we are going to see more of this in the future. I look forward to a future of this kind.

It would be interesting to see how they proceed but I am a little skeptical about the way they will run things. After all, it's possible for people who don't live there to dictate policies and I don't know if that will go well.

From a centralized point of view, they will have to comply with some regulations should need be for a financial aspect other than that, I don't see much reason as to why it might not be successful.

Being part of a digital nation is like being part of a religion in this way: No matter where we live, the followers of a religion act the same way regardless of location. It's also similar when it comes to sports fandoms (especially in futbol and even more provincial sports).

Shortly after I joined Hive and discovered the Presearch search engine, I discovered E-Estonia, the online presence of the nation of Estonia near Finland and west of Russia. What Tuvalu is going to do may be similar to what Estonia did.

I use Presearch as well, I just haven't cashed out the tokens yet. I never knew about E-Estonia, I guess we will have more nations having a digital versions a lot more than legalizing cryptocurrency.
True about the comparison to religion, digital nation disregards location, it can be be accessible anywhere, which is why I like it.

I've been using Presearch for about 18 months. I'm about 44 units away from cashing out. It had better be worth the wait!

I have 1721 tokens, I can't recall how much I need to accumulate before withdrawal, I have to check again now that you've got me keen lol but not a good time to withdraw compared to when it was trading for around $0.2
