In case you are still wondering about NFTs…

Blockchain is a database of transactions recorded on networked computer systems, and NFTs are virtual assets that reside there. Virtual things of any kind, including images, videos, music, and text, can all be acquired and sold as NFTs. These digital assets are created, bought, and sold online, mostly with cryptocurrency.

Bella thinks that the CY-B3LLA collection will serve as a welcome to a brand-new global nation. The NFTs were inspired by ten different nations, with help from regional artists.

“To see what kind of version of me that their brain concocted was really interesting … There are so many different versions of me that you could make and not ones that I could ever dream up,”

she said.

The locations and all related digital materials will be shown anytime between now and September, with the first batch being pictures of a robotic-looking Hadid that was inspired by Japan. Each NFT also functions as a passport to a worldwide community, granting access to awards and actual events that Hadid attended. Although the purchase date for these NFTs has not yet been disclosed, interested buyers can register online.

“It’s really exciting to see that people actually, like, want to be involved,” mentioned Hadid. “Every time I put something out, it feels like a birthday party, like no one’s going to show up. And so it’s been really nice to see … people actually … kind of tuning in and understanding it.”
