ROSLYN, N.Y., March 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SINO) ("Sino-Global," the "Company" or "We") today announced it will launch a new exchange for NFTs (non-fungible tokens) in collaboration with e-commerce public chain CyberMiles. The new NFT exchange will serve as a highly-secure, robust platform for collectors, artists, musicians and investors to create, sell and buy one of a kind, digital content represented as NFTs. The companies expect to officially launch their new NFT platform in July 2021, providing a critical link between the virtual blockchain world and the physical world.
Mr. Lei Cao, Chief Executive Officer of Sino-Global, commented, "NFT is driving the next wave of cryptocurrency adoption, making it a natural extension of Sino-Global's ongoing diversification and recent investments in the rapidly growing cryptocurrency market. NFT has become one of the most important basic application technologies in the process of social information digitization by enabling the monetization of digital products. We believe NFT and the blockchain that provides the basic technology for it will have a profound and irreversible impact on the transformation from the form of artwork circulation and the transformation of value concepts to the social identity, collaboration and distribution system."
Mr. Cao continued, "We will continue to strategically invest in growth opportunities that will drive our success over the coming years, as markets, commerce and currencies evolve to meet consumer demands, while working to further accelerate our growth through cooperations with proven partners, like CyberMiles."
NFT is a global asset system fundamentally built on blockchain technology, ensuring ownership of digital products, scarcity and creative value. The first version of the protocol ERC721 dates back to September 2017 and it became the first used in blockchain game scenarios. The Sino-Global/CyberMiles NFT platform will be based on the CyberMiles team's years of technical experience and the powerful, high-performance CyberMiles public chain. The new NFT platform is designed to become a continuous optimization iteration, along with the development of NFT and blockchain, into a symbiotic self-driving growth relationship.
CyberMiles is a high-performance innovative public blockchain system. As a member of the blockchain that actively participates in the distributed economy and technological ecology, it was the first to propose a high-performance commercial solution for the Ethereum public chain DPOS consensus. This solution has been used for reference by blockchains initiated by Binance and Huobi. As early as 2018, it began to promote and support NFT casting, circulation, and more. CyberMiles is also the first public blockchain to be used in the NFT-ization and auction of artists' works.
