The US Federal Election Commission (FEC) has allowed DataVault Holdings to use non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in its fundraising efforts, Cointelegraph reported.
In a Dec. 15 notice, the FEC said DataVault would be “allowed” to distribute NFTs as incentives for political campaigns without violating corporate donation rules. According to the FEC, DataVault will track all tokens distributed for its own record and will receive a “appropriate reward” for each NFT issued to contributors.
FEC Chairman Allen Dickerson said, “The Commission believes that DataVault’s proposal to provide NFTs to the Political Commission on the same terms it regularly provides to non-political clients is permissible in the ordinary course of business. It concludes that it is an extension of the credit that is granted.”
“Under the law and Commission regulations, an incorporated commercial vendor may extend credit to the Political Commission on terms substantially similar to those offered by the vendor to non-political debtors. DataVault is a “commercial vendor” because its normal business involves providing the same services it is proposing to provide to the political committee,” he said.
