Universal Studios and Moonpay Partner to Create In-person NFT-based Scavenger Hunt

Crypto trading platform Moonpay announced its partnership with Universal Theme Parks to offer an NFT-based scavenger hunt during this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.

The hunt features seven unique Halloween characters and is accessible via QR codes hidden throughout the Orlando and Hollywood parks. The drop is powered by HyperMint, MoonPay’s utility NFT minting platform.

Park-goers do not need prior crypto knowledge to participate in the scavenger hunt. All they need to do is scan the QR code and sign up via email. HyperMint will do the rest, handling the basics like setting up a crypto wallet for participants that do not yet have one.

According to an article posted by MoonPay, there is potential to mint close to seven million NFTs, making this the world’s largest ever proof-of-attendance NFT drop.

POAPs (pronounced poh-ap), also known as the Proof-Of-Attendance Protocol, are unique NFTs or “badges” that commemorate and prove someone attended an event in person or online.

“Our collaboration with Universal marks a paradigm shift in how large enterprises go to market with new NFT collections,” said HyperMint co-founder and General Manager Semyon Germanovich. “We’re showing the world how easy HyperMint is to deploy NFTs from end-to-end and at scale. The fact that there are a record-breaking number of NFTs in this collection is icing on the cake.”
