Trip.com is incubating its first non-fungible tokens (NFTs) collection, Trekki, as it makes its inaugural foray into Web3. The company claims to be one of the first global travel service providers to explore the NFT market.
The Trekki collection consists of 10,000 NFTs themed around a dolphin cartoon, and is now open for registration on Trekki’s official website. NFTs will be sold via blind boxes in 3Q2023. Trekki is categorised according to its scarcity, with each NFT possessing a distinct persona and various travel backgrounds.
With the goal of connecting the Web3 nomads with the world of travel, Trekki allows travel enthusiasts who value unique experiences and digital collectables to enjoy various benefits on Trip.com. The new NFT also carries a unique gamefied growth mechanism – the more a Trekki holder travels, the more benefits the holder can unlock through Trekki.
The NFT project is also seeking collaborations with successful Web3 players and tourism partners to offer greater benefits to holders and foster a connection between the digital realm and real-life tourism experiences.
