Seoul Launches its Metaverse Seoul Project

News, NFT news

Seoul, the capital of South Korea, has introduced a project known as “Metaverse Seoul,” which the city claims is the first municipal-backed public metaverse platform anywhere in the world.

Oh Se-hoon, the mayor of Seoul, stated that the city’s top ten tourist attractions would be among the services provided by Metaverse Seoul to the general public. These attractions include Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village, Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Seoul Forest Park, Han River, and Lotte Tower.

A youth mentorship counseling area, a fintech lab, and a business support center will also be available at Metaverse Seoul, in addition to tax services, proof of citizenship, and counseling for civil service.

In August of 2022, Seoul carried out the preliminary stages of the first test run of Metaverse Seoul. During the test run, a digital recreation of Seoul City Hall as well as Seoul Plaza were shown to participants.

Enhancing the efficiency of public administration services is the primary objective of the three-part Metaverse Seoul project, which is scheduled to be completed in 2026. The virtual reality game Metaverse Seoul is now publicly accessible via the Apple App Store and Google Play.

During the second stage, which is expected to start in 2024, the services will be expanded to include real estate consulting and the linking of overseas investors with local enterprises.

Officials in Seoul have said that the final phase would use both virtual reality and augmented reality technologies for the purpose of overseeing the city’s infrastructure.

Oh Se-hoon continued by saying that in the “new normal,” “Metaverse Seoul would be an essential communication tool for residents.” It is an all-inclusive administrative service that everyone, regardless of location or availability, may make use of without any restrictions imposed by time or distance.
