Transak’s NFT Checkout has made its way on VeChain’s Marketplace-as-a-Service (MaaS) (MaaS) platform. On the heels of the partnership, Gresini Racing offered the team’s NFTs on the platform, as a part of its collaboration with Transak.

The partnership with Transak ensures the most simple and seamless checkout solution for Gresini Racing’s largely web2-native community. The combination of VeChain and Transak’s technologies are helping to streamline the use and adoption of blockchain tools, by abstracting away the technical nuances that would otherwise be necessary to perform an NFT transaction.

MaaS was recently announced by VeChain as a new platform that fulfills an important role within the digital asset space — a no-code NFT marketplace platform that represents both digital and physical products, for use by both individuals and businesses. The platform’s launch is a response to the growing demand for tools that facilitate the onboarding of tokenized real-world assets, streamlining the process for those unfamiliar with blockchain intricacies.

For sports clubs and racing teams like Gresini Racing, the advent of MaaS coupled with Transak’s Web3-gaming-focused NFT Checkout solution is a game-changer. It opens up new avenues for fan engagement and monetization, allowing them to offer exclusive, tokenized content to a global audience.

Alessandro Raboni, Head of Growth at Transak, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Gresini Racing and for their new NFT marketplace launch on VeChain. This collaboration represents a significant leap in Web3 innovations as it effectively connects the world of motorsports with the new ownership-driven internet economy.

With Transak’s NFT Checkout solution, fans worldwide can now effortlessly purchase NFTs using their preferred payment methods, from as little as one cent to up to seventy-five thousand dollars per transaction. This integration enhances accessibility and promotes a new dimension of fan engagement in motorsports.”

The partnership also brought into play the concept of ‘phygitals’, a blend of physical and digital assets made possible through NFC technology. This means fans can own a piece of memorabilia that is both tangible and enhanced with digital features, creating a more immersive and interactive experience.

Ben Moran, Product Manager at the VeChain Foundation, noted: “The launch of Marketplace-as-a-Service is a huge achievement for our team, representing a powerful new addition to our tool suite –  we can’t wait to see it deployed by users even more widely in the coming years.

This collaboration with Transak as NFT checkout service provider, allows us to greatly streamline the ease of use for Gresini Racing’s Motorsport fans, and make the whole experience a simple and enjoyable one.”
