Seoul gov't launches world's 1st public services platform in metaverse

Public access to the Seoul Metropolitan Government has broadened to, literally, another dimension. The city government on Monday launched the first phase of “Metaverse Seoul,” an online platform where people can use public services offered by the authority. The areas of assistance are limited to administrative services, economic matters, tax and education for now. The government said it is the world’s first local government-launched public metaverse service.
