Gap partners with DOGAMI to launch pet-themed NFTs

French NFT brand DOGAMI announces a new partnership with Gap that will allow users in the “petaverse” to deck out their virtual pets with Gap logo hoodies and other NFT swag, starting July 27th.

Virtual in-game clothing, also known as wearables, will be available in three-item packs that DOGAMI players can bid on and use to enhance their gaming and barking privileges. The entire line covers the four levels of scarcity in the DOGAMI game – Rare, Epic, Legendary and Artefact.

The NFT release on the DOGAMI website will be made exclusive to Gap Threads NFT holders for 24 hours. After that they are open to the public. The virtual collection of doggie threads will also be exchangeable on Tezo’s blockchain marketplaces.

DOGAMI is an augmented reality game to serve mobile gaming. Players adopt and raise their virtual 3D pet, earning “$DOGA” currency while playing.

Why we care. Fashion in the real world lends itself to virtual wearables in the metaverse. Gap has already begun an integration with Club Roblox in a virtual environment, as well as NFT collaborations with Harlem fashion icon Dapper Dan and artist Demit Omphroy.

The DOGAMI release unlocks Gap loyalists who also like mobile AR games and like dogs. As the brand makes more of these, they add value to their core Gap Threads NFT holders. It’s the next step when a brand has experimented with NFTs – building Web3 loyalty and momentum.
