NFT collections inspired by the webtoon series “Hellbound” will be showcased beginning Wednesday, while JYP Entertainment’s girl group Nmixx will participate on NOW. Drops, a K-pop based NFT service.
“With DOSI, now anyone can buy all sorts of NFTs featuring whatever type of content they enjoy within minutes,” said Ko Young-su, CEO of Line Next. “DOSI is a unique gateway to connect NFTs and users, and as it grows, we hope to see it become a significant player in expanding the Web3 ecosystem.”
