Wemade launches first-of-its-kind Real World Event NFTs at G-STAR 2023

  • G-STAR 2023 event ticket NFTs set new Korean domestic game industry record
  • 2023 edition is biggest ever in terms of booth numbers 

Seoul, South Korea, 25th October 2023, ZEX PR WIRE, NILE, the NFT and DAO marketplace developed by leading Korean blockchain gaming company Wemade, will introduce first-of-its-kind Real World Event NFTs at the upcoming G-STAR 2023, the biggest gathering of gaming enthusiasts and fans from around the world.

The event NFTs represent the latest milestone for NILE (shorthand for “NFT is Life Evolution) as it continues to focus on expanding the NFT ecosystem. Earlier this year, NILE successfully attracted users globally with the launch of the world’s first NEITH NFT, which offers covenant value that can be leveraged as collateral. 

The G-STAR 2023 event ticket NFTs are dynamic in nature, vividly conveying the changes of NFTs in real-time during the event’s opening, closing, and entry. Significantly, the new event ticket NFTs will set a new record in the history of the Korean domestic game industry. To mark the occasion, Wemade will be giving away exclusive gifts and special items to G-STAR 2023 event ticket NFT holders at the event.

Only 300 of the NFTs have been minted and are exclusively available through NILE, including 50 each on Day 1 and 2 and 100 each on Day 3 and 4. Ticket sales start at 12 noon local Korea time on Wednesday October 25, 2023, while stocks last. More details on NILE: https://www.nile.io/marketplace/GSTAR?tab=ticket.

Wemade will have 200 booths in the B2C section and 30 booths in the B2B section, and is also organizing various activities throughout Busan City that fans can participate in.
