NFT (non-fungible tokens) are unique and non-replaceable tokens that are assigned only one ID (data) in the world. By using blockchain technology, it is possible to create digital tokens which cannot manipulate and allow its owner to prove their ownership of digital contents and to secondary distribute freely. The NFT market has been expanding fourfold in one year (Based on Minkabu’s research), and there is an increasing need to utilize NFT in the fields of art, games and other entertainment, and sports. Based on this situation, Minkabu has decided to utilize our knowledge and to provide NFT solutions that can hold value other than financial products to business partners who seek to utilize NFT. As the first step, Minkabu has agreed to provide a new service in collaboration with URAWA REDS, one of the most popular football clubs in Japan.

Minkabu develops customized NFT infrastructure for URAWA REDS which provides rare digital contents such as memorial movies, audio, and photos with digital certifications to a limited number of URAWA REDS fans within a designated community by utilizing blockchain technology. This NFT can be purchased without a crypto asset wallet, and benefits fans to support their favorite players by holding them as a valued asset. Minkabu is also supposed to develop a function that allows customers who purchased certain products to obtain NFT cards via QR codes by linking to products in online stores and in-house goods.

Utilizing its own AI and blockchain technologies, Minkabu will expand its unique NFT solution business to various fields, starting with sports.
