How is Saudi Arabia celebrating its National Day in the Metaverse?

September 22nd marks the first day of celebration for Saudi Arabia’s 92nd National Day. This year, though, citizens will be able to enjoy the event virtually too – right in the heart of Decentraland.

The Saudi-based advertising agency The Bold Group carefully planned the event with King Abdulaziz Foundation for Research and Archives (Darah). The result? An authentic combination of culture, history, and entertainment.

Event attendees will be able to explore an open-air museum that showcases Saudi Arabia’s cultural beauty. Furthermore, collectors will be able to buy wearable NFTs inspired by Saudi national attire.

Accordingly, The Bold Group will also offer limited-edition POAP collectibles. These NFTs serve as proof of attendance at the first Saudi Arabia National Day Web3 celebration.

“Fusing our past with our future, we are honoring the storied history of the Kingdom, preserving our heritage and displaying it with pride for people to engage within the new digital realm,” said The Bould Group’s Co-Founder Abeer Alessa.

The Saudis is a Saudi Arabia themed NFT collection that made waves last summer.

Are Saudi Arabia citizens more into NFTs?

Earlier this summer, an NFT collection titled “The Saudis” made waves among collectors. The 5,555 pixelated-style avatars had scored the highest OpenSea sales volume 24 hours after its launch.

Its popularity was probably due to NFT Twitter personality Farokh too, as the collector purchased multiple collectibles at once.  Nevertheless, Saudi Arabia is clearly keen on innovation and that includes the NFT sector.

” The idea is to usher the Saudi National Day, a historically traditional celebration, into the new era of technology,” said The Bold Experience Unit’s Creative Tech Director Ziad AbuRjaily. “It was inspired by the challenge of convening people across the Kingdom’s 13 different regions to celebrate Saudi Arabia in one virtual space.”
