Colombo Rovers led by the 75th Colombo District Rover Crew launched the Firstever NFT Scout Badge in Sri Lanka on 18th December 2022 in the presence of a distinguished audience of officials from the Sri Lanka Scout Association. Scouting in Sri Lanka which began in 1912 celebrates its 110th Anniversary this year, and a series of activities are planned to be held on 23rd December 2022 all around the island in celebration of the anniversary. A special Scout Badge was designed for the anniversary and the Colombo Rovers pioneered once again to launch an NFT (Nonfungible Token) version of this anniversary badge, making it the first blockchainauthenticated Digital Scout Asset in Sri Lanka.
