New Delhi, Jan 21 (IANSlife): Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs), which are essentially blockchain-certified digital art, are getting a lot of traction among brands, artists, celebrities, and other people in India and throughout the world.
Viacom18's Youth, Music and English Entertainment (YME) cluster is getting ready to enter the fast increasing digital realm of non-fungible tokens with the launch of the NFT marketplace Fullyfaltoonft.com, which has been put up by GuardianLink.io, a pioneer and creator of NFT Technologies. This is the first of its sort in India from a youth entertainment brand, and creators/users on the marketplace can benefit from GuardianLink.io's Anti-RIP NFT technology for added security. The marketplace will feature 'fully valuable' digital art created by the same team that brings legendary brands like MTV and Vh1 to life and Comedy Central in India, and is all set to go live on 14th February 2022.
This effort will also signal the continuation of the FullyFaltoo franchise, which has evolved from an MTV show to a marketing solutions studio to an NFT marketplace that will debut its varied variety of digital collectibles. The exclusive collectibles will include creations inspired by legendary pop culture properties like Roadies and Bakra, and will be offered for auction throughout the world, giving fans the chance to claim ownership of edgy and original digital art pieces. Users will be able to acquire NFTs at a defined auction price if industry standard security layers are enabled. To make a purchase using a custodial wallet, users must first create an account on the site. GuardianLink.io has built up several layers of security.
