The collaboration between Swappable and Another-1 is something truly special and exciting for the Metaverse.

The collection goes live on March 17th at 13:00 UTC. There are a total of 5,555 NFTs and they will be launched on the Swappable marketplace.

5,000 sneakers will go live on March 17th, and the remaining pairs will be sold during Decentraland Fashion Week taking place from the 24th to the 27th of March.

Here’s a quote from the CEO of Another-1 on the future of projects like this:

We aren’t talking about any change, but the evolution of the highest spheres. Digital to physical luxury goods. These sneakers are conceptualized for those revolutionary challengers seeking to evolve and seize the cutting edge of luxury goods as they morph into our digital future

Marco Stagliano, CEO of Another-1

The word phygital comes from a combination of physical and digital. These sneakers, while released as an NFT, are redeemable for real-life pairs handmade from Italian designers!

What It Means for Reselling

We’ve said this time and time again, this is the future!

A lot of people have been skeptical or totally dismissive of digital assets because of the fact that they aren’t tied to any physical, tangible objects. It’s hard for people to imagine a world where a JPEG image has real value.

But these NFTs are tied to physical sneakers. This is similar to what we’ve seen with StockX and Metakicks.

This means that reselling is going ‘phygital’, and that’s huge. Physical reselling isn’t dead, in fact, it’s far from dead. and that’s why you should check out our Hypemaster Playbook!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an NFT?

A non-fungible token is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain, a form of digital ledger, that can be sold and traded. Types of data units may be associated with digital files such as photos, videos, and audio.

Can I create my own NFT?

To make an NFT of your artwork, you’ll need to choose a platform and a payment wallet, the latter of which you’ll need to use to pay fees – and to receive any payment if you’re lucky enough to sell your NFT. There are lots of online platforms you can use to make and sell an NFT.

How do you make money with NFTs?

Some entrepreneurs and investors utilize them like stocks and profit by buying and selling them. If you have already purchased a collection of NFTs and don’t need them anymore, you can easily sell them the same way you would if you were to create them yourself. The only step you’ll skip is the minting process.
