Where NFT will be stored until the receiver claims the gift?

How does it work?

Imagine us as a gift packing service – a short stop for your NFTs between one wallet and another.

Last year we gifted NFTs by creating digital wallets, writing down seed phrases on the piece of paper, and gifting them to our friends. The process was hectic. Not everyone understood why they needed a wallet, how plugins work, and what a seed phrase is.

This year we wanted to make it simple.

When you send NFT until NFT will be withdrawn it will be in our custodial wallet. 

We agree that self-custody is the way to go for the industry. However, we want to bring as many users as possible to the space. Share positive emotions and celebrational spirit. 

Our solution is custodial only until the user withdraws NFT to their wallet. 

Is it safe to use your solution? 

Our wallets are offline and we take all other security measures – such as gift withdrawals are scheduled on working days and theres is a cooling period. As well we are licensed as crypto exchange and wallet provider in the EU, and working in US under FinCen. In addition to that we constantly audited by one of the top audit companies. 

However, as general advice, always do your own research and check the transfers you are signing with MetaMask. 

How much does it cost?

From your side the only thing that might cost you is gas fees related to transaction. From recipients side it will cost nothing. We will cover all withdrawal fees.
