Yahoo Hong Kong expands its footprint in the metaverse with NFTs for pet lovers

Global tech leader and media company Yahoo has long been committed to add spark to our daily lives with innovation and technology. Today’s real world is often melded with the virtual. As such, Yahoo Hong Kong is actively widening its footprint in the metaverse to continue bringing exceptional experiences for its users.

On July 21, Yahoo Hong Kong’s BetterMe Magazine (BetterMe Magazine) will debut its first NFT project, dubbed City Frenchie. Local illustrator has made 100 Frenchie-themed NFTs, each espousing a core brand pillar such as environmentalism, mental and physical wellbeing, culture, travel and uniqueness. Every City Frenchie has its one-and-only personality and hobby: users can find the NFT that best represents them to express their love for their furry buddies in the metaverse.

Matthew Chan, Head of Sales, Yahoo Hong Kong & China says, “With aims to offer seamless, one-of-a-kind experiences to our users, Yahoo Hong Kong has been actively embarking on new opportunities as technology reshapes the world, our lives and the way we connect with not only others but with information. Growing our footprint in the metaverse and NFTs are priorities for Yahoo Hong Kong. We hope to bring even more entertaining and fruitful experiences whilst promoting Hong Kong art via a partnership with local illustrator in BetterMe Magazine’s City Frenchie project.”
