Furthermore, according to Lucaz Lee, the founder of Affyn, more cities will receive the same treatment following the success of the Singapore NFTs.
“Starting with the Singapore metaverse city, we look forward to seeing how the metaverse economy can function and drive added value for users. With more cities in the pipeline, we are excited about the ecosystem’s prospects, namely to see how Landowners opt to develop their plots to co-create the economy of NEXUS World,” – Lucaz Lee – Affyn
