VanEck Launches NFT and Digital Assets Market SegMint

Must read

Investment firm VanEck has launched a new non-fungible token (NFT) and digital assets market dubbed SegMint following the successful listing of its spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) in the U.S.

In an announcement, VanEck said, the idea for SegMint came out of VanEck’s digital assets research and the platform built around its “Lock and Key Model.” SegMint’s technology partners include Nueva.Tech, Delegate.xyz, MINTangible.io, Portals.to and Walletchat.fun.

What is SegMint’s Lock and Key Model?

VanEck explains that SegMint’s Lock & Key Model simplifies the process of managing self-custodied assets by introducing a straightforward solution for sharing access and ownership. Access to the new platform will be limited with interest expected from Europe and Asia. Users of SegMint will receive an “Adventurer NFT” with a verified profile and completed Know Your Customer (KYC).

“We identified a significant pain point in the digital assets ecosystem—the challenge of sharing access and ownership in a self-custody world,” explains Matt Bartlett, founder of SegMint in a press release, “The Lock and Key Model addresses this by offering a user-friendly solution that empowers individuals to securely share their assets while retaining control,” adds Bartlett.
