Tsang announced on Facebook on April 4 that he will release a collection of 3,000 “Choi Yeah” NFTs in conjunction with Japanese cartoonist Yosuke Yamauchi. “Choi Yeah” is the Cantonese pronunciation (財爺) of the Hong Kong government’s financial secretary’s nickname.
Tsang stated that he will give the NFT recipients other presents, such as a poem, music, or some articles. Owners of “Choi Yeah NFTs” will also be invited to Web 3.0-related activities.
He stated, “The world has changed dramatically in recent years. Troubles of all kinds in our communities are a source of concern for all of us as we inadvertently approach the new Web 3.0 environment! This ‘Choi Yeah NFT’ project will donate 10% of the revenue from secondary trading transactions to Hong Kong tech firms “startups”
Tsang has worked for a number of private enterprises since leaving the Hong Kong government in 2017. He is presently a senior consultant with Bowtie Insurance, a virtual insurance firm. He recently appeared in ViuTV’s drama series In Geek We Trust.
“In a previous media interview, I described the prerequisites for my involvement in startups, such as young people’s participation, technological innovation, and possible industry disruption,” he said. Tsang has already created a webpage for the NFT initiative. However, the project’s specifications, such as the mint date, price, and other information, have yet to be published.
Tsang’s remark came during Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s morning news briefing. Lam said today at a news conference that she will not run for re-election to a second term, citing family considerations for her decision. Tsang’s announcement date and time are being speculated about on the Internet, but Tsang reaffirmed that he and his team had chosen to roll out the NFT.
Lam and Tsang, along with retired judge Woo Kwok-hing, were candidates in the 2017 Hong Kong Chief Executive election. Tsang was Hong Kong’s financial secretary from July 2007 to January 2017, while Lam was the city’s chief secretary for administration from July 2012 to January 2017. They both resigned from their respective roles to contest in the March 2017 chief executive election.
