One of Africa’s oldest tourist center, the Uganda National Museum has announced partnership with Murcom, a software development firm, to create digital representations of the unique artifacts that are on display at the museum facility.
The Uganda National Museum is expected to display and auction the digitally represented items on Binance’s non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace.
Speaking concerning the project, Murcom said “the blockchain-based digital representations of the various items under the Museum’s custody will be created using the software firm’s MUDA NFT platform.”
According to Suleiman Murunga, Murcom Director,
“This partnership with the National Museum will see us set up an online web page that will be used to display the NFTs and the items that the Museum represents. We shall take professional photos of the different items and then convert them into digital artworks. Thereafter, these digital artworks shall be applied on the blockchain and created into the afore-mentioned NFTs.”
Murunga further added that the items at the museum facility such as Ugandan cultural pieces, royal regalia, pre-historic pieces, ancient tools and more will be created as NFTs.
Meanwhile, Murcom Director has revealed that this project has been initiated with the key objective of raising awareness and funds for the Museum.
