While interest in the NFT sector has fallen since its 2021 peak there have still been a number of high profile launches in 2022, such as the Will Smith ‘Slap’ NFT as well as a number linked to the war in Ukraine.
Typically NFTs are launched on the Ethereum blockchain, whose ERC-721 standard was the first to support the instrument, although other chains including Avalanche (AVAX) and Solana (SOL) are also popular.

“The potential of the Web3 space is exciting, and we hope to inspire the greater Web2 communities”.

The latter brings lovers of the infamously pungent durian fruit together. Holders of the fetid fruit-linked NFT will be entitled to perks such as season opening VIP buys, durian eating sessions with celebrities and more.
Chain Debrief founder, Jacky Yap, said: “Singapore has become a bustling hub in the crypto space, with many communities sprouting up.”
“As crypto adoption accelerates, events like these are essential in introducing new players to the Web3 space, while at the same time acting as launchpads for current communities to gather and share knowledge”.
