NFTs or non-fungible tokens are now expanding into the mainstream industry. Recently, Dubai Police General Command debuted its NFT collection, becoming the first-ever government organization to do so.
said Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, Director of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence at Dubai Police.
The collection features 150 free digital collectibles symbolizing Dubai Police’s innovation, security, and communication values.
Brig. Al Razooqi also shared that the interest in the NFT collection wasn’t just limited to local news; instead, countries like India, Nigeria, US, and Saudi Arabia also broadcasted on international news. “The total views of Dubai Police NFT-related news reached 589,173 views, of which 418,693 were on Twitter, 24,282 on Facebook, and 146,198 on Instagram,” he said.
Dubai has been taking bold steps into the blockchain world by launching the Dubai metaverse project, approving crypto exchanges, and now, dropping their own NFT collections.
Following the success of the first NFT collection, Brig. Al Razooqi announced the second edition will be released during GITEX 2022.
