Money Right
The Right to Have or Not a Virtual Personality


Money is a human right, which acquires value given the exchange offered by people, which causes its value to increase or decrease as it is received; in addition, it becomes a fundamental element for the achievement of other human rights that permeate life in society.

Traditionally, money management is delegated to governments and central banks, which have chosen to support certain currencies; although this entails unpayable debts for the vast majority of countries, proving that the management of these entities has not been successful.

Faced with this, the implementation of money by local governments offers a solution to unpayable debts, as long as it is introduced into the economy in a democratic manner; ensuring oxidation, unique feature of digital money, which guarantees economic and social development, as money is exchanged.

Digital money should be understood as a derivative of virtual legal personality, which will be addressed throughout this journal by Professor Juan Marcos Rivero.

In this section we will find initiatives that promote economic and social development through tickets, tokens and the like.


The first glimpses of the virtual personality as a concept, date from the 1980s, when in Costa Rica a project called arose, the same proposed, not only the creation of an email, but the possibility that every person had access to it and that it could interact with the other subjects that participated in that space.

For professor Juan Marcos Rivero, lawyer, university professor, and researcher, this concept has varied over time, being called in some times as digital identity or virtual personality, and referring to:

Information recorded or recorded, updated or up-to-date and imputed to a legally relevant centre of interest. Thus understood, it is nothing more than a form of personality dematerialized in information.

This dematerialization is of paramount importance, when one thinks about the possibility that it is projected in the digital field, so that it can last not only in time, but in space.

The concept of virtual legal personality is relevant, in considering the need for a constitutional reform that contemplates the fifth generation of fundamental rights, which according to the expert are:

The rights that are linked to digital identity from the fundamental range, among which it is paramount to contemplate, the right to have a digital identity, but more important than that, the right to NOT have a digital identity.

While this sounds confusing, it must be understood that the virtual legal personality is a projection of the human being in the digital field, projection that should not surpass, nor nullify the being in itself, understanding this as the one that gives it foundation; Therefore, it must be ensured the possibility thatevery human being desists from this virtual personality, especially in the face of the great advances that occur in the field of technology and that gradually displace the social interrelationships.

The fundamental right to have and renounce a virtual personality, is a circumstance that comes to identify who I am at a digital level, this allows to fill a gap, as it is that each person must own its virtual identifier, which although sometimes it is not contemplated ad perpetuam, it could subsist after death, because the amount of data that tends to be associated with this identifier belongs to the person as holder, which once deceased, should be guaranteed to remain owner of such data.
There is another group of rights, which arise from the right to have and the right to NOT have virtual legal personality, as are those related to economic projection, social projection and political projection of virtual personality, but these take value, if everyone is able to distinguish the former, as professor Rivero points out: It is essential to guarantee this right to NOT have a virtual personality, otherwise, within a few years the importance of the flesh and blood human being will disappear, which will cease to be a relevant actor in economic processes, in the international process.

An example of this is the extensive development of the metaverse, a virtual space in which each person participates with an avatar and in which he can develop the activities of his daily life, limiting his participation to other vital aspects of society, as in the economic and political field. The human being is becoming less protagonist of the transcendent social processes and more and more are the corporations, the societies and even the own artificial intelligence is taking more and more protagonism. If people of flesh and blood are to remain relevant, it must be ensured that the individual can determine the fields in which he wishes to project his virtual identity.

In this sense, the world is at the door of an immeasurable change, which can mark history, by raising the virtual legal personality to constitutional status, ensuring the transcendence of the person who so desires, outside any spatial or temporal barrier.
