We've got something big to announce today...
HyperMint will allow companies to mint hundreds of millions of NFTs on a daily basis, speeding up the process that used to take weeks — or even months — to accomplish.
“The potential of NFTs goes beyond collecting; it’s the utility. You can essentially program anything into these NFTs over time, which is why we decided to focus on this new product offering,” MoonPay CEO Ivan Soto-Wright told CNBC in an interview.
MoonPay was founded in 2018 with the goal of making NFTs available to the public on a mainstream level. The organization appealed to those dipping their toes in the metaverse by giving them the opportunity to purchase digital collectibles with conventional payment methods like credit cards and mobile wallets.
It’s no secret that crypto has taken a hit recently, but Soto-Wright sees this as an opportunity for large corporations to invest.
“I’ve seen many of these different cycles before. I’ve seen this movie. There’s always going to be periods of volatility. It’s a brand new asset class and we have a brand new subset of that asset class, which is NFTs,” he said.
