Germany launches ‘Dogs of BND’ NFT collection to find talented individuals.
The German federal intelligence service, known as the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), has created a collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) featuring dogs. The collection, called “Dogs of BND,” includes 999 dog NFTs based on the BND’s security dogs and other roles within the agency.

The BND hopes to use the NFT collection to attract and recruit cyber talent. The NFTs are not easy to collect, but the agency has provided enough information on its Instagram post for potential collectors to find their way to an Ethereum address where they can access the collection and mint an NFT.
Twelve of the NFTs in the collection are not yet collectible, but the agency plans to set up more difficult challenges where the tokens will be the prize.
The Dogs of BND collection has gained a lot of attention since its launch in early June and the floor price and trading volumes of the NFTs have increased significantly. In the past 24 hours, the floor price has jumped from 0.000001 ETH to 0.052 ETH, making an NFT worth about $100.

Despite the surge in value, the liquidity of the collection is not yet high enough. For example, the collection only saw a total volume of about 1 ETH on June 21, suggesting that only around 20 NFTs were exchanged.
