VIA Treasure Trunks will come in the form of soul-bound tokens, which among other attributes cannot be transferred to other wallets. Louis Vuitton chose to release the NFTs in this form to encourage “lasting ownership”.

“The world of VIA will unlock Wonder through an ongoing series of digital keys that owners of a Treasure Trunk will be able to purchase to unlock the new and unseen collectibles of the Maison,” the company said. “Each collectible is revealed through Treasure Trunk in a digital form that is combined with exclusive access to a physical counterpart, taking owners on a journey unlike any before.”

The waiting list for VIA Treasure Trunks will open on June 8, allowing residents of the US, Canada, France, UK, Germany, Japan and Australia to sign up for a chance to purchase limited edition NFTs.

Once an interested buyer has connected their crypto wallet and provided personal information, those who qualify will be able to begin exploring VIA on a private website starting June 14. The purchase of VIA Treasure Trunks will start on June 16, and the NFTs can be paid for using either fiat or cryptocurrency.

All sales of Treasure Trunks are final except in EU countries where you are allowed by law to change your mind within 14 days of purchase.

In 2021, Louis Vuitton released an NFT-themed game, called Louis The Game, to celebrate its 200th anniversary. The game took players on an action-packed adventure through six imaginary worlds that exist outside of time and was designed to educate players about the brand’s history through interactive gameplay.
