More Countries Embrace NFTs 🇦🇪
Over the past year, the number of countries interested in NFTs has increased significantly. Last week, we discussed how the United States plans to regulate NFT to boost its economy. This week, we cover two countries that have increased their NFT initiatives.
Firstly, the British government declares its intention to use Royal Mint to create NFT in a bid to become the world’s leading digital economy. It also intends to implement flexible regulatory measures to manage this rapidly growing industry.
Secondly, the Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi has sponsored a two-day NFT workshop in which 220 personnel worked together to build NFT. This is the UAE’s first attempt at developing NFTs demonstrating Abu Dhabi’s innovative culture.
The Rarer It Is, The More Exclusive It Gets 🏎️

In addition to the car and NFT, the winner will also receive VIP access to exclusive events, a special tour of the Museo Lamborghini, and a virtual meet & greet with Steve Aoki and Krista Kim.
