Israel's parliamentary body O Knesset could become the first government to issue a non-fungible token (NFT) of the original draft presidential oath, which will be delivered to the president-elect, Isaac Herzog, before his inauguration now in July. He will assume the presidency, replacing Reuven Rivlin, who is ending his seven-year term. The new president Isaac Herzog will receive an NFT of the original oath signed by his late father – the country's sixth president. According to local news, Miki Levy , the speaker of parliament, will deliver to the new president a digitized version of the original oath signed by Chaim Herzog.
