Coming this August, Etihad is launching an exclusive 300-edition expansion to their EY-ZERO1 non-fungible token (NFT) collection. Yes, you heard it right: your beloved airline is joining the blockchain bandwagon, and the view from up here is just exhilarating.
Up in the Air – The Perks of the EY-ZERO1 NFT Collection
The EY-ZERO1 NFTs, which first took off in July 2022, were not just about trading digital assets. The holders were, and still are, granted some of the most sought-after benefits in the aviation world.
We’re talking Silver Tier status in the Etihad Guest program, exclusive access to the glittering world of the Yas Marina Circuit Formula 1 race, and even invites to an NFT holders’ event. Could it get any more elite?
But wait, there’s more. The new collection is designed to look like the Mission: Impossible-branded Boeing 787 Dreamliner, a sleek tribute to the “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” movie. Picture yourself in a scene from your favorite action movie, jet-setting in luxury. Talk about exclusive experiences.
Next Stop – Horizon Club and the Staking-for-Miles Program
Just when you think it can’t get any better, Etihad has another surprise up its sleeve. They’re launching their Web3 loyalty program, the “Horizon Club.” The club is introducing a staking-for-miles program, allowing holders to stake their NFTs and earn Etihad Guest Miles in return. Your virtual investments can now land you real-world flights, upgrades, and other privileges. Exciting? We think so!
This high-flying program is a result of a partnership with real-world asset tokenization firm Arcube and infrastructure firm Crossmint. Other airlines might want to fasten their seatbelts; Etihad is setting the standard high.
Remember, the sky’s the limit when it comes to luxury. Stay tuned for more exclusives, and in the meantime, keep living life in the high-flying lane.
