To purchase an NFT through myNFT’s vending machine, customers simply had to select one of the envelopes displayed and then key in the provided code. After paying £10 via Apple Pay, Google Pay or an alternative contactless payment method, they received a card with a QR code.
Once they set this up, complete with an NFT wallet, they received the NFT which can be worth up to £1000. myNFT’s first NFT collection included a selection of iconic NFTs, made by brands including Dr. Who Worlds Apart, Thunderbirds, Delft blue night watch and many others.
Breaking barriers to entry
One of myNFT’s main goals was to eliminate any entry barriers in the NFT area. It wants to provide an easy way in for anyone who wants to start buying and trading digital assets. The vending machine epitomized the simplicity of myNFT’s platform, creating a fun and engaging process for acquiring NFTs.
“There is so much potential in the NFT market and it is such a shame to see some of it go to waste when potential new entrants are put off getting involved by various unnecessary and complicated barriers. From gas taxes, gatekeeper knowledge, to having to set up a complicated digital wallet and more, great opportunities are being denied and wasted on newcomers.” Hugo McDonoughco-founder of myNFT, said in a statement.
“We are determined to make NFTs an everyday activity for everyone, breaking it out of the current clique,” McDonaugh added. “The best way for the sector to grow is through popular involvement, and we will only achieve that by breaking down barriers. Our unique vending machine, the only one in Europe, is a fun and whimsical way to demonstrate it.”
myNFT is now looking to find a more permanent home for its vending machine. “We’ve also been asked by several events if they could have the vending machine for their events around the world,” McDonaugh added.
myNFT is currently live in Beta. Customers can already visit the platform to buy and sell NFT on Ethereum, Moonbeam, Moonriver, Polygon and Binance Smart Chain Networks. They can also use the new GBM auction system to sell their NFTs. There are also many other features in the pipeline coming soon to myNFT. These include next-generation NFT minting tools, multi-currency NFT listings, token-gated experiences, and integration of other blockchain networks into the platform.
