Neon, a company specializing in the sale of NFT, has announced the installation of the first-ever NFT vending machine. Located in the heart of Wall Street, the machine will accept payments in US dollars by credit and debit card. The goal is simple: to democratize and facilitate the purchase of NFT with this ATM for those who do not own cryptocurrencies.
NFTs, non-fungible tokens, have exploded in recent months. The NFT market is now worth 22 billion dollars. This excellent health is due to the interest of many brands and companies that have decided to invest in this new market, such as Adidas, Carrefour, and Nike, which has just bought a brand of virtual trainers sold in the form of NFTs.
The American company Neon, which specializes in the sale and management of NFT, has just made a major announcement. The company is launching the first-ever NFT vending machine in New York. This project was made possible after a 3 million dollar investment. According to the company, the machine will be located in New York’s Financial District, just off Wall Street. The machine will accept credit and debit cards in US dollars.
This is the main interest of this vending machine, which allows acquiring NFTs without the need to have cryptocurrencies. When a user places an order, they get a box with a unique code for the chosen NFT, which can be easily redeemed on Neon’s platform. “Buying and selling NFTs doesn’t have to be a mystery and you shouldn’t have to hold Ethereum, write a smart contract, pay fees or bridge blockchains to participate,” assures Neon co-founder John Birnholtz.
The company set out to launch the vending machine based on the observation that only 2% of Americans have a digital wallet, while 80% have a credit or debit card. “We’re making selling digital art even easier than selling physical art,” it promises.
