NFT wind blows in Israel this time!
The Israeli parliament has released an NFT of the original draft of the presidential oath. It will be given to new President Isaac Herzog before he takes office. Unlike the US president, the role of the president in Israel is more of a ceremonial one, with the aim of holding the country together.
Michael Levy, a spokesman for the Knesset, Israel’s governing body, will give the elected president both a physical copy of his oath and an NFT representing him, according to local news outlet.
“I am excited to present a special memento to President-elect Herzog, including the text of the oath his father signed 38 years ago.”

The original oath signed by Herzog’s father, Chaim Herzog, on May 5, 1983. On the names of his parents, Herzog vowed to remain loyal to the State of Israel and duly fulfill his role as president.
From past to present…
The idea behind turning the presidential oath into NFT was to combine a historical oath with modern technology, that is, to combine the past with the present. The newly elected president will carry the NFT-formed oath throughout his term. The oath will store in a cold wallet. There will be no internet connection.
