The NFT collection, which includes 50 digital collectibles, was launched in the presence of Director General of the Transport Authority in Ajman, Omar Muhammad Lootah, and a number of the authority’s officials.

Government bodies in Ajman got a record in the Web 3.0 world by launching NFT collections or services in the metaverse.

Earlier in January, the Ajman Police announced the launch of its first set of non-fungible tokens within a framework of the UAE’s institutions’ keenness to tap into the metaverse and its related technologies.

The Ajman Police’s NFT collection consists of 200 digital collectibles, which are dedicated to employees, consumers, and partners.

Moreover, Ajman’s Department of Finance announced the launch of a unified government payment platform on the metaverse. Through the Ajman Payment Platform (AjmanPay), the first government payment platform on the Metaverse, all fees for the local government agencies’ services in Ajman will be collected in the virtual world.

The move comes within a framework of the ADF’s strategy to shift to digital transformation in Ajman through providing new payment methods, which are appropriate for the customers and giving distinguished user experience in line with the highest levels of ease, comfort, and safety.
