Monetise digital collections as holographic NFT collectible items
How can digital collections be monetised, and bring people closer, at the same time?
In this panel, we will explore the way to monetise digital collection as holographic NFTs. Unlike traditional NFTs, the holographic NFT collectible items come to life as if they are in the viewers’ hands, enabling collectors to exhibit them in a personalised way. We will also explore how digital collections can bring a sense of community to people through shared ownership and how it helps to finance the preservation of physical artefacts through digitisation at the same time.
