Emi YOSHIKAWA, Ripple’s vice president of corporate strategy and operations, took to social media X to comment on Japanese giant SBI Holdings’ recent XRPL initiative, calling it a “huge” deal. SBI intends to use the XRP Ledger to issue non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to visitors to Expo 2025, the upcoming World Expo to be held in Osaka, Japan.

The NFT MYAKU-MYAKU, the official Expo character, can be obtained by visiting Explo and completing various missions. Visitors can also receive additional NFTs if they use the Expo mobile app. It is worth noting that the event is expected to attract 28 million visitors. XRPL validator Vet believes that the inclusion of XRPL NFTs should significantly increase their visibility and demonstrate their ability to serve “real world purposes.”

World Expos, designed to shed light on scientific, economic and technological progress, are held every five years. The last World Expo was held in Dubai, UAE in 2020. Previously, it was held in Milan, Italy, in 2015. The very first World Expo took place in London, Great Britain, back in 1851. These large-scale events then became regulated with the creation of the Bureau International des Expositions in Paris in the late 1920s. The Osaka World Expo is expected to last from April to October 2025.
