“Oasis TOKYO is a community platform of a metaverse and a Non-Fungible Token (NFT), showcasing the concept of the year 2035 near-future city.

Additionally, leading players in the crypto market have enhanced their efforts to increase the adoption of metaverse and blockchain gaming. Huobi recently launched a campaign worth $100 million to explore possibilities within the Metaverse ecosystem.
