Ivan Soto-Wright, CEO of MoonPay, disclosed the debut of a new NFT platform dubbed HyperMint today, June 21.

The platform will support the creation and minting of NFTs by big businesses, brands, and advertising agencies. Fox Corporation, Universal Pictures, Selfridges, and Timbaland's Beatclub, to mention a few, are some of the launch partners for HyperMint.

What is Moonpay's New NFT Platform, HyperMint?

NFTs are intangible digital assets that reflect tangible things in the real world, such as works of art, music, and real estate.

Companies, brands, and creative agencies may quickly generate, mint, and manage utility NFTs with the help of Moonpay's HyperMint, a "self-service, developer-focused platform." In essence, the platform seeks to advance Web3's architecture.

To explain, scaling the creation, management, and selling of NFTs throughout the globe is currently difficult. As a result, more often than not, brands and businesses have struggled to build their Web3 strategy. HyperMint was created to address these difficulties.

Ivan Soto-Wright revealed the new platform at the NFT.NYC conference. He was speaking at Radio City Music Hall as the keynote speaker.

"Utility NFTs will go much beyond collectibles and into real-world usefulness," stated MoonPay's CEO. "They will assist businesses, brands, and creative agencies in transitioning from targeted advertising to one based on long-term ownership, involvement, and authenticity."

MoonPay's HyperMint is the enterprise-level infrastructure that will enable this massive change.

What Can You Get from HyperMint?

Companies, brands, and others can interact with users and monetize IPs using Moonpay's HyperMint. They can reportedly produce hundreds of millions of NFTs each day. Additionally, the platform promises to reduce the go-to-market durations from approximately six months to a few days. Finally, a small group of individuals will oversee the entire procedure using a tried-and-true method.

Moonpay collaborated with a number of well-known figures in the gaming, music, fashion, and entertainment industries to develop HyperMint. For instance, the platform will create NFTs with extra utilities in collaboration with Beatclub.

The biggest stars of today, like J. Cole, Mike Dean, and Justin Timberlake, have endorsed our mission and understand that Beatclub and HyperMint are the way ownership, involvement, and trust will develop in the future, according to Timbaland.

Universal Pictures will employ utility NFTs to promote user involvement in the meantime. The Fox Corporation, on the other hand, will utilize HyperMint for its next Web3 development activities. To honor Victor Vasarely, the British luxury department retailer Selfridges has already started to release NFTs with HyperMint.

Moonpay is a well-known supplier of Web3 infrastructure and was founded in 2018. Using popular payment methods like debit and credit cards, local bank transfers, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay, users may purchase and trade cryptocurrencies using its software tools. The company currently operates in more than 160 countries and has more than 450 partners.

Overall, HyperMint offers significant opportunities for established firms with vast intellectual property portfolios. Moonpay's HyperMint is off to a promising start with some of the major IP owners already on board.
