Each NFT has a unique smart contract identifier that acts as a digital fingerprint and provides uniqueness and traceability to digital collectibles. This can add value to digital collectibles by proving their provenance and facilitating a smooth transaction process. According to a report from DappRadar, NFT sales volume reached USD 24.9 billion in 2021, compared to just USD $94.9 million in 2020.
Ir. Eric Chan, Chief Public Mission Officer of Cyberport said, “Blockchain technology, with its decentralised, transparent, tamper-proof, and traceable features have been driving lots of innovative solutions across industries, from finance, and healthcare to arts. NFT has become the hottest topic in the art scene recently, but it can also be applied in many other sectors. As the key promoter of blockchain technology and ArtTech in Hong Kong, Cyberport is very glad to see a group of passionate professionals establish the NFTAHK to further promote the NFT market in Hong Kong.”
Mr. Tony Chan, Founder, and Chairman of NFTAHK said, “The well-designed crypto regulatory framework in Hong Kong gives clarity to the market and positions Hong Kong as the perfect location for setting up of NFTAHK. We have received much interest for high-quality NFT projects from Chinese celebrities and artists for launching NFT projects in Hong Kong, and believe NFTAHK can be a good bridge and bring much value to NFT communities in the Greater Bay Area China.”
Mr. Samson Lee, Co-founder and Co-Chairman of NFTAHK, Founder & CEO of iSHANG and Co-organizer of TADS Awards commented, “We are delighted to formally establish NFTAHK and consolidate resources to better serve the NFT community in Hong Kong as well as international communities that are linked to Hong Kong. Hong Kong is one of the top international financial centres, and there is considerable trust in the city’s well-established contractual, private property, and copyright laws. Hong Kong has strong potential to be the leading NFT hub in Asia and globally.”
