What is the idea behind the project? Margarita Popova, the head of the Kyndykan creative association, noted that the project would give reindeer herders an additional opportunity to earn money. The press release says that each NFT avatar has a real reindeer from the herd. The owner will be able to monitor the animal in real time through a GPS tracker, as well as give it presents. In addition, futures contracts for the purchase of reindeer antlers are available to buyers. According to the authors, the initiative will help stop the exodus of young people and promote the culture of the North.

Earlier BitRiver, an operator of mining centers, announced the construction of a data center in the Mirninsky district of Yakutia. The aim of the project is energy-intensive and blockchain computing.
