The proceeds from the auction and sale of the Non-Fungible Tokens will go towards supporting sustainable tourism at the Royal Belum State Park in Perak.

Also, towards sustaining the indigenous communities that live within.

The eyes of the world are set upon Malaysia for the few days between 6 – 8 November 2023 at the WTM 2023.
