You can now browse, buy and sell non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in person at ftNFT Shop, the region’s first-of-its-kind physical NFT shop, which opened at Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, on December 22.
International tech company SoftConstruct, which has over eight brands offering IT solutions to various industries, more than 300 partners and over 16 offices worldwide, created ftNFT – a unique NFT marketplace operating under the Fastex ecosystem, which includes the Fastex Exchange, FastexVerse, Fastex Pay, Fastex Chain, FastToken and FirstTicket.
ftNFT is a concept that is meant to bring together NFT and crypto enthusiasts to a platform where they can interact with and experience these innovative services in a whole new way. Visitors can interact with and look through a unique variety of physical art and even create 3D avatars of themselves through a professional 3D scanner.
Guests who attended the launch of the store — on December 22 — were given a special pass, which was created in the form of a free NFT that they could claim in order to gain entry to the event. They had the opportunity to meet NFT artists and exhibitors in person and to learn about their work firsthand at the event.
Among the attendees was Amrita Sethi, the first NFT artist in the UAE and one that has created an original style of bringing art to life and vice versa through Voice Note Art.
SoftConstruct aims to open a second NFT store at Dubai Mall in the near future.
