Frankfurt am Main/Hamburg, April 5, 2022 - As was reported at the January 2022 Annual General Meeting, action press AG (Frankfurt) owns one of the largest catalogs of digital media assets bundled in one company worldwide and sees great potential in its exploitation in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).

Today, action press AG announced that it has allied with FinPro AG (Cologne), the tokenization-focused subsidiary of Advanced Blockchain AG (Berlin), as a technology partner for this purpose. Advanced Blockchain AG is Europe's leading, publicly traded Web3 incubator and is considered a technology leader in the blockchain industry in Germany.

Designer and curator of the first five tokenization projects published by action press is Professor Tobias Rehberger, one of the most important contemporary world renowned German artists. In his first NFT works, he surprises with the innovative concept of the so-called "Liquid Posters" in which moving and still images as well as the physical and virtual worlds converge.

"We evaluate our digital assets and make valuable photos digitally tradable as tokens in the form of digitally unique or limited editions, as a whole or in parts," says Prof. Moritz Hunzinger, CEO of action press.
