Neon, an NFT marketplace and gallery built on Solana recently rolled out the world’s first NFT vending machine–located just off Wall Street in New York.
The machine operates 24/7 and facilitates NFT purchases with no cryptocurrency, crypto wallet, or specialized knowledge required.
How does it work?
Located in the Big Apple’s financial district, the unique vending machine accepts USD credit and debit cards. Upon purchase, it allegedly dispenses a box containing a unique code for the chosen NFT, which can then be redeemed on the Neon platform.
“Our goal is to support artists and creators by letting them sell digital art to everyone, and to help anyone who wants to become a collector,” explained Jordan Birnholtz, CMO and co-founder of Neon, in an official press release.
According to Birnholtz:
“NFT buying and selling doesn’t need to be a mystery and you shouldn’t be required to hold Ethereum, write a smart contract, pay gas costs or bridge blockchains to participate.”
