Saudi Arabia is celebrating its first national day in the metaverse


Citizens of Saudi Arabia can celebrate the country’s national day in the metaverse. The three-day festival will be held in the Decentraland between September 22 to 24. From traditional NFT costumes to an open-air museum, this immersive experience pays homage to Saudi Arabia’s amazing culture and history.

How Saudi Arabia celebrates its national day in the metaverse?

September 22 is the first day of celebration for the 92nd national day of Saudi Arabia. However, this year, citizens can enjoy the event virtually – right in the heart of Decentraland.

The Saudi-based advertising agency The Bold Group thoroughly organized the event in together with King Abdulaziz Foundation for Research and Archives (Darah). An authentic blend of culture, history, and entertainment.

Event attendees can discover an open-air museum which shows the cultural beauty of Saudi Arabia. Additionally, collectors can purchase wearable NFTs inspired by Saudi national costumes.

Thus, The Bold Group will release limited edition POAP collectibles as well. These NFTs are proof of attendance at the initial Web3 celebration of Saudi Arabia’s national day.

“By combining our past with our future, we are honoring the Kingdom’s proud history, preserving our heritage and proudly showcasing it to the public in the new digital realm,” stated Abeer Alessa, Co-Founder of The Bold Group.

Are Saudi Arabia citizens more into NFTs?

This summer, an NFT series called “The Saudis” made waves among collectors. 5,555 pixelated-style avatars were OpenSea’s top- selling volume 24 hours after its release.

Its popularity was perhaps due to Farrokh’s NFT Twitter personality, as the collector bought several collectibles at once. However, Saudi Arabia is clearly eager on creation, and this contains the NFT sector.

“The idea is to bring the Saudi National Day, a traditional and historical celebration, into the new era of technology,” said Ziad Aburajili, creative technology director of The Bold Experience Unit. “It was inspired by the challenge of inviting people in 13 different regions of the kingdom to celebrate Saudi Arabia in a virtual space.”
