Casio Computer Co., Ltd. has partnered with Polygon Labs to introduce its inaugural NFT project: virtual G-SHOCK watches on the Polygon blockchain.
This initiative involves releasing 15,000 limited-edition G-SHOCK Creator Pass NFTs, which will be exclusively minted on the Polygon blockchain. The release is scheduled to begin on September 23, 2023.
Casio Computer Co., Ltd. is a Japanese electronics company known for its wide range of products, including calculators, digital watches, musical instruments, cameras, and more.
Polygon serves as a blockchain scaling solution and framework for building Ethereum-compatible blockchains.
The company sees this project as just the beginning of a new era in virtual experiences for G-SHOCK users.
It added that the decision to use Polygon as the preferred platform is due to its ability to provide fast, seamless, and eco-friendly transactions for minting and managing NFTs.
Takahashi Oh, Casio’s Senior General Manager of Timepieces, noted the importance of accessibility, innovation, and inclusivity in their virtual G-SHOCK project, making Polygon the natural and logical choice for their needs.
