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.

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 team 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”.
