Hyundai Motor is the first automaker to join the NFT market with its NFT community, including the Hyundai NFT official website and channels on Discord and Twitter. The Hyundai NFT community will provide its users with the Hyundai brand experience in the metaverse by sharing NFTs depicting its mobility solutions. The Hyundai NFT Discord and Twitter channels opened on April 15, and the official NFT website is scheduled to open soon in May.

Today, the company released a short film introducing the Hyundai NFT universe concept ‘Metamobility universe,’ which reflects the ‘Metamobility’ concept revealed at CES 2022. In the film, the ‘Meta Kongz’ gorilla character drives in both a classic PONY and modernly reinterpreted heritage series PONY from Earth to the Moon, visualising how mobility solutions can transcend time and space. The film at the end also teases a shooting star-shaped NFT that will be released in May.

Hyundai Motor will also publish 30 limited editions of’ Hyundai x Meta Kongz’ NFTs on 20th April, to celebrate the release of the film. Hyundai NFT projects will be continued throughout the year to keep improving the Hyundai NFT Universe. Revenues from the exchange of Hyundai NFTs will be used for the project’s management and community members.

“The Hyundai NFT universe will extend the Hyundai brand experience, especially with the MZ generation, in a completely new way, further enhancing our commitment to innovation in both the real world and in the metaverse,” said Thomas Schemera, Hyundai Motor’s Global Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Customer Experience Division. “We are extremely excited to introduce ‘Metamobility’ through our own NFTs and start this journey with ‘Meta Kongz’.”
