According to the application, the company intends to provide virtual goods, including virtual foods and beverages, as well as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
In addition, the company is planning to offer a virtual convenience store with actual and virtual goods and home delivery, as well as a virtual convenience store offering gasoline.
