One of Africaâ€™s oldest museums, the Uganda National Museum (UNM), is set to create digital representations of the unique artifacts that are on display at this facility. Working in concert with software development firm Murcom, Ugandaâ€™s biggest museum is expected to display and auction the digitally represented items on Binanceâ€™s non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace.
Uganda National Museum Artifacts to Be Made NFTs
According to Murcomâ€™s post on Medium, the â€œblockchain-based digital representations of the various items under the Museumâ€™s custodyâ€ will be created using the software firmâ€™s MUDA NFT platform. On June 24, Binance NFT will launch and both UNM and MUDA will be participants in the crypto exchangeâ€™s â€œ100 Creatorsâ€™ Campaign.â€
In the meantime, discussing the reasons prompting the Ugandan museum to join the NFT movement, Murcom Director Suleiman Murunga starts by explaining the token creation and authentication process. Next, he summarizes Murcomâ€™s working relationship with the museum saying:
The Murcom director adds that NFTs for items such as Ugandan cultural pieces, royal regalia, pre-historic pieces and ancient tools will be created.
Meanwhile, the same Medium post reveals that this project has been initiated with the key objective of raising awareness and funds for the Museum. Further, this NFT marketplace â€œwill also allow artists and content creators to launch NFTs on the Binance Smartchain.â€
