VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Victory Square Technologies Inc. (“Victory Square” or “Company”) (CSE:VST) (OTC:VSQTF) (FWB:6F6), a company that provides investors access to a diverse portfolio of next generation technology companies in key sectors including: Web 3, Gaming, the Creator Economy, NFTs and the Metaverse, is pleased to announce that portfolio company, Next Decentrum Technologies Inc (“Next Decentrum”) announced a partnership with DAF (Digital Access to Finance) to launch several NFT projects inspired by Egyptian art, culture, and history to allow for greater access and appreciation of one of humanity's oldest civilizations and bring some of the world’s most iconic artifacts to the metaverse.

In 2019 over 12.6 million people visited Egypt. In the same year the Tutankhamun Paris exhibition broke records for the highest number of visitors in the history of cultural exhibitions in France attracting more than 1.42 million people in 6 months.

“Egypt is home to one of the world's richest cultures. There is much for everyone to discover and enjoy,” said Hussein Hallak, CEO of Next Decentrum. “Through this partnership with the DAF team, we aim to bring Egyptian history, culture, and art to the metaverse by using NFTs, AR and VR technology.”

For centuries, people have been fascinated with ancient Egypt. This fascination has manifested through literature, architecture, art, film, politics and religion.

Digital collectibles have seen a rise in popularity leading to a surge in NFT sales to $10.7B, according to Reuters, sparking massive interest and causing many to look at NFTs as the way forward for blockchain mainstream adoption.

“The rapid growth of the NFT market and the rising interest in the metaverse represent a unique opportunity to cultivate a global audience who want to own a piece of Egypt,” said Hatem Kandeel, Founder and CEO of DAF. “Through this partnership with Next Decenturm, we plan to launch multiple projects in collaboration with Egypt’s top artists and museums.”

The teams of Next Decentrum and DAF have been working closely together for the past few months. The collaboration has already resulted in the launch of Crypto Pharaohs by Next Decentrum. Crypto Pharaohs is an iconic collection of digital collectibles (NFTs) inspired by the culture and heritage of ancient Egypt.

The two companies will be working with museums, cultural organizations, and artists to launch digital collectables that put Egypt into the hands of collectors and lovers of the culture from around the world through:

  • Introducing ultra-rare NFTs inspired by Egyptian history, art, and culture.

  • Collaborating on special events, media campaigns, and promotions.

  • Bringing awareness of the growing digital collectables sector.

  • Increase participation from the MENA region starting with Egypt.
