Connecting members with the Metaverse
HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 7 November 2022 – HKT (SEHK: 6823) – As emerging Web 3.0 technology and the Metaverse rapidly gain popularity, Hong Kong as an international financial hub has in recent years been proactive in expanding innovative technologies to drive its development into a global virtual asset centre. Furthering the application of its strengths, the city has demonstrated its vibrant, blooming fintech ecosystem to markets worldwide. Committed to driving Hong Kong’s fintech growth, HKT’s loyalty programme and digital ventures arm – The Club is launching a personalised NFT (non-fungible token) for its members to get an early taste of NFT experience.
The campaign allows The Club members to personally take part in the design of a tailored pixelated NFT that reflects their own style. The Club members can upload a half-body portrait or profile photo of themselves or their loved ones and input their preferred colour and accessories such as hats or glasses. The provided information and photo will be used as inspiration to mint a unique NFT, which is viewable on OpenSea, making it an ideal gift or highly memorable collectible.
Clive Chow, Chief Operating Officer of The Club, said, “As a digital industry leader, The Club has always been striving to bring the latest technological experiences to every one of our members. ‘Everyone’s NFT’ aims to facilitate the public’s entry into the new Metaverse era instead of rendering it a distant dream. Going forward, we will continue to envision novel ideas to explore the innovative future of the Metaverse with our members.”
