KUALA LUMPUR: Pos Malaysia Bhd has issued its first non-fungible token (NFT) stamps for collectors, in conjunction with the month-long National Day and Malaysia Day celebrations.
In a statement, Pos Malaysia said a limited edition NFT stamp is redeemable complimentary with every purchase of the #Empatbelas Setem Ku special edition stamp folder set, which is available for sale at post offices or online at www.pos.com.my, retailing at RM59.00 each.
Produced through a collaboration between Pos Malaysia and local retail brand APOM, each stamp folder contains one physical stamp sheet of 14 stamps.
Pos Malaysia said the complete set also comes with three envelopes, three postcards, a specially designed folder and a user guide for redeeming the free NFT stamp.
A limited number of 3,000 folder sets will be available for purchase, each set allowing collectors up till Oct 31 to redeem one out of the 14 NFT stamp designs.
“Pos Malaysia is excited to work together with APOM on this NFT stamps project, along with 14 highly talented artists representing each state in Malaysia.
“Together with APOM, we are proud to offer the opportunity to local artists to showcase their talents not only in Malaysia but globally, as NFTs can be shared or traded internationally,” group chief executive officer Charles Brewer said in a statement.
Brewer said penetrating the NFT market was a significant milestone for Pos Malaysia, as we complement our traditional postal offerings with various digitised services and products, enhancing efficiency and improving the way it connects with customers in the rapidly evolving and digitally advanced world.
“While Pos Malaysia has been around as a postal service operator for over 200 years, our aspiration is to remain relevant with times and be future-ready to exist another 200 years,” he added.
