HyperMint’s platform enables its users to connect with their audiences, own their intellectual property, and scale the creation, deployment, and sale of utility NFTs worldwide.

Immersive SandBox Club and metaverse art gallery

Monopoly has also partnered with JOYSTICK to create an immersive SandBox Club and Metaverse Art Gallery to exhibit Alec’s ‘Rags to Richie’ art.

This partnership between HyperMint and Alec Monopoly is a blueprint for the next phase of NFTs. Alec's development of the ‘Rags to Richie’ collection is a seamless blend of artistry and utility and unlocks a new path for audiences to create, explore, and play with art. We're excited to work together and continue leading the NFT space forward.

Alec Monopoly added:

I’m excited to open the project beyond just the crypto community, with HyperMint’s ability to easily accept credit cards and ensure this mint is smooth and secure.

NFTGrails will be hosting a Twitter Space with Alec Monopoly, MoonPay CEO Ivan Soto-Wright, and other guests on Wednesday, July 20th at 5pm EST.
