An official Romania Informatics Institute (RII) report revealed that the organization would invest in developing nonfungible tokens (NFTs) for institutional investors. The RRI developers plan to integrate Web3 technologies on the NFT platform to bridge the gap between private and public institutions.
The report demonstrated that the National Institute for Research and Development in Informatics in Romania (ICI Bucharest) would support the authority to push for the adoption of Web3 in the region. The NFT marketplace developers have integrated emerging technologies into the platform to enable the public and users from various institutions to mint their digital assets.

With the new platform, the users will have complete control over their digital assets and will be allowed to buy and sell NFTs.
In an interview with ICI Bucharest lab coordinator Paul Niculescu-Mizil Gheorghe, he affirmed that the institute’s latest development aimed at enabling the country to have a friendly environment to hamper the adoption of Web3 development.
Recounting the efforts made at ICI Bucharest, Gheorghe confirmed that the institute had supported the academia in conducting research for more than five years. Since the emergence of blockchain, crypto, and Web3 technologies , the institute has invested its human and financial resources to explore viable opportunities.
According to Gheorghe’s observations, the NFT sector has gained global recognition due to its endless opportunities and benefits. He confessed that the NFT has allowed the developers to create innovative digital assets enabling the holder to utilize them in multiple sectors.
Gheorghe noted that the NFT potential had enabled ICI Bucharest to develop unique digital asset for institutional clients. The numerous advantage of the NFTs compelled the crypto scholars at the institute to formulate a well-structured proposal for digital collectibles in 2021.
Analysis of Romanian Crypto Adoption
An ICI Bucharest 2021 report encouraged the institute to pursue business partners in the crypto sector. In 2022, the proposals began to materialize after the institute closed a partnership agreement with MultiversX.
The MultiversX team pledged to support the institute in creating unique marketplace technologies. The partnership with MultiversX ranked as the institute’s first project with the blockchain service provider firm.
After signing the Memorandum of Association (MoU) report, MultiversX and the ICI Bucharest official agreed to create a unique Domain Name System (DSN) on the decentralized platform. The team also announced plans to develop a top-level domain (TLD).
According to Gheorghe, launching the DSN and TLD projects aimed to transform the Romanian digital industry. Following this, the Romanian authority led by the Secretarait-General and the country’s Ministry of Research, Innovation, and Digitalization affirmed to support the projects.
He added that the ICU Bucharest Institute plans to address the current concerns between the crypto-savvy population and the public sector. Gheorghe believes that adopting blockchain and crypto technologies aims to bolster the user’s virtual experiences.
Romania Government Involvement in Web3 Projects
Gheorghe lauded the Romanian government for supporting the ICI Bucharest projects in his April 26 statement. He admitted that the government’s involvement in developing cutting-edge technologies aims to maintain a healthy economy.
From his vast experience in blockchain and industrial engineering, Gheorghe was pleased to announce that the current development of innovative projects in Romania will create new revenue-generating projects and increase the adoption of the culture of innovation in the public and private sectors.
He argued that adopting emerging technologies in Romania would stimulate economic development and increase entrepreneurial activities in the region.
In his April 26 statement, Gheorghe mentioned that blockchain technologies would improve efficiency, transparency, and security in the Romanian private and public sectors.
In support of this, the chief executive officer at MultiversX, Beniamin Mincu, applauded the efforts made by the Romanian authority to increase the adoption of technology. He commended the work done by the authority to boost the relationship between the citizen, businesses, and entrepreneurs in the region.
Besides collaborating with the MultiversX team, the ICI Bucharest Institute has collaborated with Romanian sportsmen, businesses, investors, and institutions. The institute gathered valuable input from meaningful engagement with the public to back the NFT project.
The proposed NFT platform will integrate five main digital collectibles for multiple use cases. The remarkable efforts made by the institute stemmed from the exceptional support from the Romanian Olympic and Sports Committee in collaboration with Agerpres, Bucharest’s Central University Library, among others.
In the previous public engagement, Romania, the 18-year world record holder of 100-meter freestyle swimming, David Popovici, extended his continuing support for the NFT projects.
