LG has been toying with the idea of NFT integration for some time now. Earlier this month, the company announced working with the blockchain tech giant Kakao’s Ground X to bring about a line NFT capable Smart TVs. Moreover, LG partnered with an online art auctioneer, Seoul Auction Blue, to carry out projects related to NFTs.

South Korean tech giants are entering the blockchain and crypto space as the appeal of digital assets increases among the masses. Samsung announced earlier this year, the plans to launch an NFT platform for its smart TVs. Additionally, the company will also be launching its own store on Decentraland.

South Korea is supporting the blockchain ecosystem with a crypto-friendly President, Yoon Suk-yeol, at the helm of affairs. Mr. Yoon kept the deregulation of the crypto industry at the center of his election campaign agenda.
