Months after launching its first NFT collection, the Dubai Police said it will drop its following collection at the 2022 edition of The Gulf Information Technology Expo (GITEX). People worldwide will have a chance at getting their hands on the second collection as it won’t be restricted to Dubai only. This is beneficial as “during the first launch, the police saw maximum interaction online from people in the UAE, Nigeria, India, US, and Saudi Arabia.”
In a local media outlet, Khaleejtimes, it has been reported that almost 23 million people expressed an interest in the genesis collection, so we can only assume that the second will be a hot commodity too.
The first collection made Dubai Police the first government entity in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the world to launch an NFT collection. Since announcing it, the police force has reportedly received more than 7,000 messages from people expressing interest in the tokens.
How will the lucky ones who can access the NFT be chosen? It’s unclear yet. However, the first collection conducted a raffle. “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,” said Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, director of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence at the Dubai Police.
