Background and Activity Policy

NFTs (non-fundable or non-replaceable tokens) can be used for a wide range of purposes, including in-game items, trading cards, art, antiques, copyrighted materials, and electronic receivables, and they already have assets and a certain amount of business potential. On the other hand, due to the wide variety of uses of NFTs, there are various directions for existing and new businesses to sort out the players. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss and debate business opportunities and risks associated with NFTs, and to establish rules for sales and distribution of NFTs after exchanging opinions with external regulatory agencies and existing industry associations.
