NFT has been the buzzword for 2022. For those still unversed, it stands for non-fungible token and is nothing but a digitized piece of art or memorabilia that is recorded in a blockchain and provides exclusive ownership. And to create further hype around it, Dubai has opened its first-ever physical NFT store lately!
Located in the Mall of Emirates, it will be operated by international tech giant SoftConstruct and will offer patrons a chance to browse, buy and sell NFTs in person. As per the company, visitors will also be able to interact with and look through a unique variety of physical art and even create 3D avatars of themselves through a professional 3D scanner.
The store’s opening that recently took place saw the presence of several NFT artists and exhibitors such as Amrita Sethi, the first NFT artist in the UAE, and more. The shop will also exhibit a wide array of collectibles such as that of AKNEYE, a number of hand-painted and unique eye sculptures, alongside the exclusive art toys by Chiko & Roko, and more. Opened on December 22, 2022, the ftNFT Shop, as it is called is in for big success in the future.
