The co-founder of myNFT, Hugo McDonaugh, had something to say about the first NFT vending machine in Europe. He revealed that its present location is not its final destination. The myNFT executive said the search is still on for a place to put the device. Also, he noted that they are considering some bars. McDonaugh said the device is primarily to bring digital collectibles closer to people. That way, it removes any hindrances to enter into the market.

“There is so much potential in the NFT market and it’s such a shame to see some of that go to waste when possible investors are put off getting involved by various unnecessary and complicated barriers. We’re determined to turn NFT investments into an everyday activity, and break it out of its current clique.”

Interestingly, NFTs acquired through the first NFT vending machine in Europe are multichain. That is, users of such digital collectibles can hold them on different blockchains such as Ethereum, BNB Chain, Moonriver, Moonbeam, and Polygon. Also, tokens from Thunderbirds, Delft Blue Night Watch, and Dr. Who Worlds Apart are available for purchase. According to McDonaugh, profits from the same sales of NFTs on the first vending machine in Europe will go to charity. Giveth and Roald Dahl’s Marvelous Children’s Charity.
