Tokengated Commerce – Shopify
Today, the relationship between Australian brands and their customers is more than just the transaction. Customers want to feel connected and appreciated by the brands they support. In this new era of commerce, success rests on personalised experiences that encourage loyalty and repeat business. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) represent a unique opportunity to build deep connections through brand loyalty. This is increasingly important in a world where customer acquisition costs are rising, and fostering a loyal brand community is key to business growth.
Launched in June 2022, NFT-powered tokengated commerce gives Shopify customers the tools to create incredible consumer commerce experiences by unlocking exclusive access to products, promotions, and brand communities. Customers can connect their crypto wallets to a Shopify online store, and they can use their NFTs to unlock exciting experiences. NFTs and Web3 technologies will transform commerce experiences and give merchants the most leverage possible through code.

T3D is a digital asset company with a library of 1000s of three-dimensional images, largely from the worlds of sport and entertainment. T3D is now merging Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and 3D printing, providing an easy step-by-step process that enables creators to incorporate a 3D dataset into the NFT, giving the NFT owner the power to 3D print their prized possession.
This process is made possible by T3D’s world-first NFT smart contract, embedded with 3D-printing protocols and branded as ‘NFTY Print’, officially launched in June this year. The NFTY Print smart contract protocol enables NFT content creators to mint their designs in a 3D print-ready format, thereby allowing the NFT owners to effortlessly and securely order professionally printed 3D products based on their NFT collections directly from the Company.
T3D is preparing to conduct its first NFT drop of iconic racehorses, from Phar Lap to Secretariat, called NFTY Run.
Founded in 2011, Kraken is the world’s largest global digital asset exchange. Kraken’s global client base trades over 100 digital assets and seven different fiat currencies, including GBP, EUR, USD, CAD, JPY, CHF and AUD.
Kraken is preparing to launch Kraken NFT – the complete solution for exploring, curating and securing your NFT collection. This isn’t just another place to buy and sell NFTs – rather, Kraken recognises this is a big opportunity to support local artists, which is why the platform is launching with collections from Australian creators like Betty, co-founder and director of Deadfellaz. Unlike other NFT trading platforms, Kraken NFT will also have zero gas fees, meaning there are no blockchain network fees for trading activity on the platform.
