As some of East Asia's biggest tech companies delve deeper into the world of crypto, Japanese and South Korean mega-companies are eyeing the Metaverse, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), Web3 and Blockchain business expansions. South Korean telecommunications and Chaebol business giant SK, which is currently working on launching a cryptocurrency that will be compatible with a wide range of the group's services, says it will launch a Metaverse product this year.


According to Asia Kyungje, SK has made an undisclosed "equity investment" in Morph Interactive, a company it has partnered with since 2021 as it seeks to accelerate the introduction of new layers of functionality for its Ifland Metaverse platform. .SK, which has captured more than a third of the lucrative South Korean mobile carrier and IP space, says it wants to "build a crypto economy" that is both "gamified" and has customizable avatars that use NFTs. also uses. SK wants the project to be operational before the end of the year – a similar timeline is outlined for its subsidiary SK Square, which is working on a token launch.






Morph, which specializes in 3-D design for the Metaverse space, was quoted as explaining that it is working to transform Ifland into "a communication tool that is actively used in the corporate business environment". as well as the "daily life of ordinary "users".


South Korean search engine behemoth Naver, which last month invested in several Metaverse-themed startups through its own Naver Z Metaverse arm, is also the creator of chat app giant Line.

The project has already seen the firm collaborating with Japanese entertainment giant Yoshimoto Kogyo Holdings to produce exclusive NFT videos called Yoshimoto NFT Theatre. It has also struck a deal that will see it release an NFT inspired by the anime series Mobile Police Petlabor.

CoinPost reported that the firm, which owns a range of lucrative intellectual property titles, would like to spread its investments over a span of three years.
