The US Federal Election Commission (FEC) has allowed DataVault Holdings to use non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for fundraising activities, Cointelegraph reported.
In a Dec. 15 notice, FEC declared that DataVault is “permissible” to distribute NFTs as an incentive for political campaigns without violating the rules on corporate contributions. DataVault will track all tokens distributed for its own records and get “appropriate compensation” for each NFT issued to contributors, according to FEC.
“The Commission concludes that DataVault’s proposals to provide political committees with NFTs on the same terms as it routinely provides to its non-political clients would constitute a permissible credit extension in the ordinary course of business,” Allen Dickerson said. , chairman of the FEC, said.
“Under the Act and Commission regulations, an incorporated commercial seller may extend credit to political committees under terms substantially similar to those offered by the seller to non-political debtors. DataVault is a ‘commercial provider’ because its ordinary business involves providing the same services it purports to provide to political committees,” he said.
