ATLAS Vending launched its latest innovation and first-of-its-kind non-fungible token (NFT) vending machine.
Being the first vending machine provider to dispense NFTs in Malaysia to commemorate Malaysia Day, the leading vending solutions provider took the opportunity to create a platform for 13 local NFT artists to showcase their unique artworks that incorporate local art and culture.
To encourage all to join in the excitement, 13 prominently branded vending machines were placed at REXKL, with each vending machine representing a Malaysian state and an NFT artist from the state.
These vending machines will be available from now until Dec 16, 2022, and each vending machine contains a total of 300 rare NFT artworks, out of which 50 of them are rare platinum NFTs which will be dispensed randomly.
In celebration of the 59th anniversary of Malaysia Day, each NFT is available for RM59 through cashless payments.
Additionally, those who purchase these NFTs will have the chance to win some exciting rewards from a pool of 59 prizes that will be distributed randomly, including 13 Nintendo Switch and 46 small ticket prizes of limited-edition merchandise.
All winners will be announced on Dec 9 at REXKL during Atlas’ giveaway ceremony, which will be joined by the NFT artists.
Atlas Vending marketing and ancillary sales senior manager Kalithasan Sothinathan shared that after their success of the Sapot SME campaign last year that was initiated to help SMEs recover, Atlas is now aiming to generate the economy through art and culture by creating a platform that will uplift Malaysian artists to make their distinctive artwork more accessible and giving them the recognition they deserve.
“As a vending solutions provider, we are committed to delighting our customers with our creativity and innovation to fulfil their evolving needs.
“NFTs have surged in popularity in recent years and have completely revolutionised the blockchain sector. Hence, we wanted to bring all 13 local NFT artists together to appreciate their work and draw Malaysians’ attention to the NFTs,” said Kalithasan.
This initiative also aims to elevate local artists through a profit-sharing model in which the total sales generated by these NFTs will be shared among all artists involved in this project.
“Vending machines are typically designed to dispense refreshments. Our initiative stands as a testimony that we are capable of going beyond the ordinary. Atlas’ flexibility allows everyone to have an enjoyable shopping experience as we are constantly evolving to cater to our customers’ unique needs,” added Kalithasan.
