But what is an NFT?
Explains the director of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence of the Dubai Police. Although the term is becoming more widely known, its immaterial nature makes it difficult to understand. The Dubai Police helps to understand it. “NFT is a unit of data stored on a type of digital ledger called a blockchain, and each NFT is a unique copy in itself, containing complete information about the date of creation and the owner”, Information related to NFT documented on a blockchain is secure, the policeman insists, because “it cannot be spoofed or copied at all.”
Al Razooqi has revealed that those interested in owning the second edition of the Dubai Police digital assets should stay tuned as the second edition will be launched during GITEX 2022. In this first edition only 150 lucky ones have got the Police NFTs from Dubai. Soon, they will no longer be the only ones.
The collection has 150 free digital assets that symbolize the values of innovation, security and communication of the police force. Al Razooqi recalls that the Dubai Police is the first government entity in the EAU to create its digital assets and the first police organization in the world to do so.
