Background and purpose
With the ability for users themselves to transmit various information on SNS, etc., the importance of fan-based marketing, which places highly loyal users at the core of marketing, is increasing. In addition, it is expected that this trend will be further strengthened with the penetration of Web 3.0 (*2).

We will actively propose fan base marketing in the Web 3.0 era. the next deployment
Cloud Circus contributes to the expansion of the market by creating many examples of NFT utilization in companies, organizations, and brands. NFT is expected to generate synergies with the AR market, where Cloud Circus is already developing its business, and the Metaverse market, which is an adjacent market. I am planning to go. (*1) About Uemachiya Morisha Co., Ltd.
A company that revived the large cafeteria of the former Marukan department store, which sadly closed in June 2016. It was established with the two goals of “retaining the large dining room of Marukan Department Store as much as possible” and “making Hanamaki City’s Uemachi shopping district a town where Hanamaki’s industry grows.” In February 2017, the former Marukan Department Store building, which has one basement floor and eight floors above ground, resumed operations by operating only the first floor and the sixth floor where the large dining hall is located. Currently, experience-based stores are opened on the 1st basement and 2nd floors. It is attracting attention as a “step-by-step revitalization method for department stores” and a “model of department store that sells experiences rather than goods.” The company’s representative Yasuhiro Otomo is a director of Cloud Circus Co., Ltd. and a manager of several companies.
