Happy International NFT Day!
Today is the official International NFT Day, a time to commemorate the invention of non-fungible tokens.
The term non-fungible token, or NFT, was coined by Dapper Labs' Chief Technology Officer Dete Shirley on the same day, Sep. 20, in 2017.
To celebrate, Dapper Labs is joining The Sandbox and LuLuLand World for a full metaverse experience.
"NFTs have become the lifeblood of communities, innovation, and blockchain adoption," The Sandbox team wrote. So, this year, Dapper Labs launched the first-ever NFT Day, a new officially recognized holiday that will celebrate non-fungible tokens across every blockchain.
Other companies, projects, and platforms like OpenSea and STEPN are also joining in on the fun.
"To celebrate, we’re featuring historical NFT collections on our homepage today," OpenSea wrote on Twitter. "Every project is a part of NFT history, but for today’s theme, we chose projects that represented milestones for the space."
The event started at 10 a.m. ET.
"Happy NFT Day," STEPN wrote on Twitter. To celebrate, STEPN [is] in The Sandbox Game, partying with our ecosystem partners. Jump into the Metaverse."
How are you celebrating, anon?
