A NFT is a digital object that lives on a blockchain. It can encapsulate a non-physical object such as an image, a song, a contract or it can be attached to a physical one a car, a house. NFTs have many benefits such as: they are impossible to falsify and they are easy to create, customise, transfer and track.
We believe NFTs can become a fantastic marketing medium if spread widely. Following this vision, free minting is the right way to go to on board your community rapidly. Also, nothing makes a greater impact than a gift and that is what you want your brand to be associated with.
Every NFTs generated by AirGift are on the Polygon network which is the most popular layer 2 solution based on Ethereum. Layers 2 offer higher scalability and lower fees while benefiting from the same level of security.
In April 2022, the Polygon network announced its commitment to go carbon neutral and climate positive this year by releasing their “Green Manifesto: A Smart Contract with Planet Earth”. They also made a $20 million pledge to offset their carbon footprints and buy extra credits to eventually become carbon negative.
Even if NFT use the same underlying technology than crypto, called a blockchain, as a free minting solution, our platform is designed so anyone can retrieve their NFTs without owning any crypto currency.
Users can store their NFT within any crypto wallet out there that is Polygon compatible. If they don't have a crypto wallet, we are on the verge of releasing our own that will be the 'world simplest NFT wallet'. Hold on tight.
Utilities are benefits that anyone can offer to NFT holders. It can be free gifts, a promo code, an early and/or VIP access, additional content, extra customer support, etc. Some collections get very creative. You don't necessarily need them to be created before you launch. They can be created later on to create future dynamics. These can be done on your own but we are already working on a "benefit portal" - scheduled for Q1 2023 - to issue and monitor them all.
