Reuters has just reported that the finance minister of the U.K., Rishi Sunak, has asked the Royal Mint—the organization that mints coins owned by the British government—to issue a non-fungible token (NFT) and release it this summer.

According to the source, this is part of Sunak's new approach focused on crypto assets. NFT is a digital token with a single copy on a blockchain. These tokens have become a hot trend recently, selling for massive sums in Ethereum on platforms like OpenSea.
