NFT project Azuki has launched a virtual city called Hilumia. Hilumia will include a toy store, arcade, gym and even a love contest called “Love Island”.

The firm, Hilumia, is an interactive virtual city shaped by the community and will expand over time,” he said, emphasizing that the local Physical Backed Token (PBT) connects the ecosystem:
