Niftmint was honored to be one of the 20 companies selected this year to compete in the TChallenge, the six-month long global competition driving innovation in Web3 development with 5G event that honors six companies and their solutions, which demonstrate the powerful potential to reshape how people engage with the internet.

This year's target group called out to ambitious developers, creatives, and researchers from all over the world to show innovative ways to integrate Web3 solutions into telecommunication.

"Welcome to Bonn" collectible NFT

Niftmint is an API first company, which means our APIs embed directly into a Brand or Platform's Infrastructure so #Web3 and #NFTs can be used natively within existing experiences while abstracting #crypto from the user. That means minting, offering/selling, custody, and transferring of NFTs.

The app the Niftmint mean created for the TChallenge allows T-Mobile customers to mint their own NFT direct from their T-Mobile Tuesday users app. T-Mobile's Digital Loyalty Collectible gets you access to deals, pricing, events, experiences, and exclusive digital collectibles.

Welcome to Bonn Digital Collectible commemorates your experience in Bonn, Germany for the TChallenge and provides exclusive offers for future TChallenge events.

We see a world in which all of us will be using NFTs every single day without even knowing we are using NFTs because every Digital Product in the near future will be made better by utilizing NFT technology. Niftmint CEO/Founder touched on the concept when he pitched Niftmint's T-Mobile Digital Loyalty app to judges and other teams.

T-Mobile's interest in the app coupled with interest from the other participating teams validated that we are building a product and platform that brands and organizations need, want, and searching for.

Niftmint was able to make great connections with T-Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, T-Labs, and all of the other participants that competed in this year's T-Mobile TChallenge. We hope to get our app implemented into T-Mobile and DT in the near future. “#NFTs on DT & T-Mobile Devices”.

This was Niftmint's first time showcasing our product and will help us prepare for the T-Mobile TChallenge in Bonn, Germany, May 21- May 25!

The Flywheel conference is an annual event that bring entrepreneurs, investors, and professionals together to cultivate momentum for growing companies. The highlight of the conference is the investment competition where finalists compete for live investment awards.


GemaTEG was named the 2023 Flywheel Conference Winner and received a $150,000 investment award from the Flywheel Angel Network. In addition, Alphi and SheFly also received $50,000 investment awards each from the Flywheel Angel Network.


Every year a new LLC is formed by the Flywheel Angel Network to invest in the winner of the conference. The Flywheel Angel Network is a group of angel investors who are passionate about supporting economic development in North Central Washington.

Niftmint had a booth in the exhibitor hall where we met with investors and entrepreneurs, including the "Fan Favorites" of the conference: Alphi, Citizen Mint, Gemateg, Novuson, Pure Blue Tech, and Shefly.

The Flywheel Angel Network received a record number of applications for the 2023 Flywheel Investment Competition. A total of 82 applications were submitted ant he Flywheel angel Network had the challenging job of narrowing down the pool to the six finalists. Niftmint was honored to be in attendance with these finalists.

It was a busy day at the exhibition hall meeting with investors and companies to talk about eCommerce infrastructure. Thank you to all the people who stopped by to check us out!

Niftmints proposal for the T Challenge

Niftmint will be presenting a solution for T-Mobile to offer all of its customers NFTs managed and delivered from T-Mobile devices and applications. Niftmint has been working with Brands via its embedded API and Commerce Applications to provide the simplest way for Brands to Mint, Sell, and Custody NFTs directly on their site and channels while abstracting cryptocurrency and crypto wallets from the customer experience. Niftmint does this to prevent the friction that can come with forcing a user to acquire cryptocurrency or manage a crypto wallet if they are not familiar with or feel comfortable with the process. With Niftmint, Brands are able to offer NFTs to their customer with the same simplicity that they offer their current product offering.

Connect with Niftmint in Europe

The Niftmint Team will be in Europe throughout the last half of May, including in Bonn from May 21st - 24th. If you would like to connect with the Niftmint team during their time in Europe, please reach out to
