The Dubai Police plans to roll out the second collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) after the first bunch attracted approximately 23 million people globally, according to local media outlet Khaleej Times.
The Dubai police released the first NFTs in late March as part of a campaign to showcase its security, innovation, and communication values. They comprised 150 free digital assets, Blockchain.News reported.
The launch of the second bunch was reached after the authority overwhelmingly got at least 7,000 direct messages across its social media platforms.
Khalid Naseer Al Razooqi, the Director General Department of Artificial Intelligence at the Dubai Police, pointed out:
“All participants were contacted to confirm digital wallet addresses, and those who met the requirements were shortlisted in a raffle draw, of which 150 individuals won and received the Dubai Police digital assets for free.”
As the first government entity in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to develop its digital assets, the Dubai Police intends to continue enhancing policing by rolling out the second NFT collection during GITEX 2022, scheduled for October.
The first launch attracted maximal online interactions from participants in the United States, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and India.
Al Razooqi pointed out:
“NFT is a unit of data stored on a type of digital ledger called a blockchain, and every NFT is a unique copy in itself, containing complete information about the date of creation and owner. NFT-related Information documented on a blockchain cannot be falsified or copied.”
Meanwhile, according to a recent study by Forex Suggest, the UAE emerged among the top crypto-ready nations.
With a score of 6.2/10, the UAE shared the fourth position with Georgia, Romania, and Croatia. Hong Kong took the top spot after scoring 8.6/10.
