Museum of the Future, a futuristic Emirati museum in Dubai, has teamed up with leading crypto exchange Binance to cultivate and present a collection of NFTs. Celebrating International Museum Day, the museum, deemed the world’s most beautiful and futuristic building, is introducing a brand new concept that talks about the possibilities of the future.
Launched only a few weeks ago, the Museum is already making a significant impact with visitors, with tickets and the Museum Future Talks series sold out days in advance.
In collaboration with Binance NFT, the Museum of the Future reveals its intentions to develop crypto-assets like NFTs, cryptocurrencies and the blockchain, the mixed reality, mobility, the metaverse, and other future technologies.
“Museum of the Future’s partnership with the world’s largest cryptocurrency and blockchain ecosystem player makes a significant contribution towards Dubai’s plans to establish a new international digital asset ecosystem, which will, in turn, generate long-term economic growth within the digital economy,” said Omar bin Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy, and Remote Work Applications, in a statement.
In addition, Lath Carlson, Executive Director of Museum of the Future, stated:
“This exciting project is the first of many future ventures that will see us working with the world’s brightest minds and construct high-impact developments that will shape the future.”
The Museum of the Future envisions what the world could look like in 2070, with flying taxis, wind farms, and solar energy projects conducted in space. Rising 77-meters above the ground, the seven-story structure has become home to several immersive future environments, including mixed reality, the metaverse, NFTs, and other future technologies, which aim to place visitors in an overwhelming version of the future, tapping into all five senses.
Though the Museum of the Future in Dubai may be one of the UAE’s latest technological and architectural marvels, it also epitomizes the country’s diverse natural ecosystem, which boasts a vast range of local flora, fauna, terrestrial and marine wildlife.
On closer inspection, the huge green plateau upon which the building stands is a resplendent garden that comprises around 100 species of trees and plants, reflecting the natural diversity of the UAE’s heritage.
On the other hand, the digital collectibles marketplace, Binance NFT, would add its aid with financial and technical know-how.
“We are honored to partner with the Museum of the Future in Dubai, a truly unique and innovative concept. We look forward to working with the Museum to develop industry-leading digital products that enhance the growth of the industry and promote adoption of blockchain within the region,” Helen Hai, Head of Binance NFT, added.
With Binance NFT, the Museum will develop a range of virtual assets, pioneering the crypto-technology space. The first NFT drop is set to be announced in the coming weeks, with the collection to be intrinsically linked to ‘The Most Beautiful Building on Earth,’ aiming to set new standards for NFTs worldwide.
Binance NFT is the official NFT marketplace of the world’s biggest crypto exchange Binance. It offers an open market for artists, creators, crypto enthusiasts, NFT collectors, and creative fans worldwide.
Last July, Binance NFT and Russia’s State Hermitage Museum announced their collaboration to release tokenized art from the museum collection, which had auctioned on the NFTs marketplace at the end of August 2021.
