Monex’s Coincheck plans to develop metaverse city “Oasis MARS”

Coincheck also started recruiting metaverse creators to participate as project members of “Oasis MARS” and collaboration partners to enhance “Oasis MARS” project.
Coincheck is currently focusing on developing “Oasis,” a project for urban development in a metaverse that utilizes blockchain among the emerging next-generation SNS-typed internet, and working to create a new customer experience and digital economic sphere by combining the metaverse and NFTs.
In January 2022, Coincheck began developing “Oasis TOKYO” in the metaverse game “The Sandbox,” and in March 2022, Coincheck began developing “Oasis KYOTO” in the metaverse game “Decentraland.” Collaborations with various artists, celebrities, brands, etc. have been decided even before metaverse cities are open to the public.
In “Oasis MARS,” Coincheck will continue to collaborate with various creators, artists, and other partners to advance the project and create a precedent in the still nascent metaverse, and pursue new possibilities in a world that combines metaverse and NFTs.
Coincheck is looking for metaverse creators to participate in the “Oasis MARS” project as project members, as well as artists, organizations, and companies that can help it promote the “Oasis MARS” and other “Oasis” projects through collaboration projects and etc.
