South Korea’s election day is tomorrow, so we’re all naturally wondering, “Which NFT platforms do the candidates use?”
Luckily, Digital Daily answered that question for us.
Ruling party candidate Lee Jae-myung was the first candidate to actively use NFTs, launching the so-called “Lee Jae-myung Fund” to raise campaign money.
Lee initially planned on two rounds of funding, but they hit their target of KRW 35 billion after just one round.
These NFTs were apparently based on Klaytn, the public blockchain of Korean internet giant Kakao using the Klip Partners NFT tool.
The NFTs are also uploaded onto OpenSea, the world’s largest NFT market. There are 17,500 thousand tokens owned by 17,500 owners.
Main opposition party candidate Yoon Suk-yeol, meanwhile, used the ICON’s own Craft Network to issue a signed visitor log as an NFT.
This was back in December, when he attended the Korea Startup Forum.
On the NFT, Yoon wrote, “Korea’s future lies with startups.”
Yoon chose not to sell his NFT out of consideration of Korean election laws.
