Mercedes-Benz NXT and Mojito Unveil 'The Era of Technology' NFT Collection

Mercedes-Benz NXT, a part of the famous German car brand, is joining forces with Mojito to introduce an NFT collection. They’re calling this new collection ‘The Era of Technology,’ which is a part of their larger ‘Icon’ series. This collection is the second of seven eras with 780 collectibles available. Launch day is set for May 21 at 18:00 CET and runs until May 28.

Discounts and Mint Passes for Collectors

The cost of each NFT is 0.08 ETH. Existing collectors have access to two types of discounts. Collectors of previous core collections like Maschine, Mercedes-Benz NXT Icons, and Mercedes-Benz NXT Eternities can get a 30% discount. Superdackel holders can enjoy a 15% discount. Additionally, collectors of Maschine and Mercedes-Benz NXT Eternities will receive mint passes. These passes allow for one free mint (excluding gas fees) or a reduced price. The passes are used up once they are used.

Mercedes-Benz NXT Icons celebrate the company’s design legacy. Led by Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener, the design team created these items to tell a story spanning seven eras, from now to the early days of cars. The first era, ‘The Era of Luxury,’ focuses on today’s cars and their design in the digital age.

The second era, “The Era of Technology” centers on six legendary vehicles made between 2000 and 2017. The collection features 62 unique traits across five visible categories, allowing fans to own digital versions of these classic vehicles.

Mojito’s Role in the NFT Launch

Mojito plays a crucial role in this NFT launch. It provides the web3 infrastructure for Mercedes-Benz NXT. This includes blockchain integration, NFTs, and user-friendly interfaces. Mojito blends the accessibility of web2 with the game-changing qualities of web3.

Mojito offers tools like APIs and SDKs that simplify tasks such as token creation, smart contract deployment, and automated token distribution. It also supports tiered discounts through tokengating, and handles customer management and reporting. Additionally, it integrates WalletConnect and Metamask, making it easier for users to engage with the NFTs.

Inaugural Core Collection and Future Plans

Mercedes-Benz NXT’s first core collection was Maschine. For this collection, they collaborated with renowned artist Harm van den Dorpel and the art collective Fingerprints DAO. This partnership set a high standard for future collections.

With “The Era of Technology” being the second of seven planned eras, there are more exciting releases to come. Each era aims to showcase a different aspect of Mercedes-Benz’s rich history and design evolution. The collection provides a unique way for fans and collectors to connect with the brand’s legacy through digital art.
