As part of a campaign to showcase security, innovation, and communication values, the Dubai Police has rolled out a set of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) comprising 150 free digital assets, according to local media outlet Khaleej Times. 

Khalid Naseer Al Razooqi, Director of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence at Dubai Police, noted:

“All those interested have to do is share the announcement of Dubai Police Value NFT post with their friends and send a direct message with their names, emails, and NFT wallet addresses to Dubai Police on their social media platforms.”

The NFTs will be rolled out for free as long as the public, both inside and outside the nation, participates in the campaign.

As the first government entity in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to develop its digital assets, the Dubai Police seeks to enhance policing.

Al Razooqi pointed out:

“NFT related Information documented on a blockchain cannot be falsified or copied at all.”

NFTs continue taking the world by storm based on some of their traits like limited supply and proof of ownership. 

Having set its eyes on becoming a blockchain and crypto capital, the UAE is setting the ball rolling by establishing various initiatives.

For instance, crypto companies got the green light to set up business in the Dubai Multi-Commodities Centre (DMCC) free zone last year. 

Likewise, Citizens School, Dubai educational institution, recently announced the acceptance of Bitcoin and Ethereum payments for tuition, Blockchain.News reported. 

The institution partnered with a digital currency platform to process the crypto payments by automatically converting them to dirhams (AED). Therefore, the crypto-friendly approaches being adopted in the UAE have made nearly 67% of residents to be interested in crypto investments, according to data analytics firm YouGov.
