FUNDGO and the First NFT Union in Vietnam Initiate a Firm Foundation for National Digital Economy
On November 22, 2022, the Establishment Ceremony of NFT Union was successfully held at Hotel Majestic Saigon, 1 Dong Khoi Street, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City. The ceremony welcomed large organizations from the blockchain industry in general, and NFT filed in particular, as well as representatives from enterprises, investment funds, and the technology community who are interested in NFT.
The term NFT (Non-fungible token) was coined in 2017, which refers to a unit of data on a digital ledger called blockchain. Each NFT can represent a unique file so they are not interchangeable. With strong growth potential, NFT is widely applied in all fields. They are expected to become an effective solution in protecting assets in general and intellectual property rights in particular.
