“Virtual Base” emphasizes the importance of “private donations,” which serve as the foundation for Médecins Sans Frontières’ medical and humanitarian aid activities and for delivering aid to places in need of medical care without being influenced by any authority. The aim is to convey this message, and we have prepared mechanisms that allow visitors’ actions in the virtual space to lead to donations to Médecins Sans Frontières.
Médecins Sans Frontières booth overview/how to donate
If you fill a watering can with water and water the sapling in the center of the square in the booth, the tree you support will grow into a large tree, and HIKKY will make a donation of 10 yen each time. Additionally, a flower will bloom with the username of the visitor who made the donation. While you can enjoy the colorful and ever-changing scenery, you can also realize that each individual’s actions have the power to change the world little by little.
*No charges will be made to individual users within this booth. In addition to the above, during the virtual market period, if you post a photo taken inside the Médecins Sans Frontières booth to It will be donated to a medical group.
Furthermore, once you have completed your donation at the booth, you can try your hand at the game “Catch the Heart,” where you have to catch the heart-shaped “fruit of support” that falls from the support tree. When the fruit is caught, items such as medicine and therapeutic food will pop up that will be donated to underserved areas around the world. If you answer the questionnaire in the booth, a hidden command will appear and you can enjoy the game again in hard mode.

Transforming donations from the Metaverse into a new culture HIKKY will make a donation to Médecins Sans Frontières according to the total number of seedling-raising actions performed at the booth during the virtual market period and the number of posts with the hashtag “#Vket Médecins Sans Frontières.”
To date, HIKKY has worked with a variety of companies and
organizations to help people become more familiar with complex themes such as “investment” and “tax payments” through the Metaverse experience. HIKKY sympathizes with the activities and philosophy of Médecins Sans Frontières, and would like to contribute to arousing interest in “donations” among a wide range of users and fostering a new culture of donations in the Metaverse. As part of this effort, HIKKY will not only promote interest in donating to Vket visitors, but will also donate up to 500,000 yen to Médecins Sans Frontières based on the number of actions users take within the booth.
The results of this donation will be announced after Vket ends through X’s Médecins Sans Frontières Vket official account and Vket official account.

One of the world’s largest Metaverse events where you can buy and sell 3D items such as avatars and real products such as clothes, PCs, and food and drinks at a venue on the Metaverse. Held since 2018, it is a pioneering event in the Metaverse that boasts over 1.2 million visitors from all over the world and holds a Guinness World Record (TM) *. In addition to buying and selling products, we also offer “experiences” unique to the Metaverse, such as riding on vehicles at the venue, receiving customer service, and participating in live music performances. Furthermore, it is possible to communicate by voice between visitors, allowing them to enjoy the immersive feeling of touring the city together in the real world.
This virtual market started with the purpose of buying and selling 3D data products between individuals, but in recent years, major companies that want to enter the Metaverse business have expanded the sale of real products, creating new possibilities for VR commerce. *Certified by Guinness World Records (TM) for having the most booths at a virtual reality market event
