warranti is the marketplace for Phygits - NFTs backed by real-world value
Phygits are real assets that consist of a digital and physical part = phygital. The physical collector’s item is kept highly secure by a licensed partner. The digital counterpart, also known as a digital twin, consists of an NFT (non-fungible token) and represents the real asset. The real collector’s item can be redeemed at any time in exchange for the NFT.

Phygital collectibles form mutually beneficial relationships across the digital and real world, boost your digital collectible with a tangible counterpart and fuel your physical collectibles with authenticity.
Phygits allow showcasing your collectibles free from physical constraints and risks. Easily displace and trade your collectibles digitally.
Simply redeem your phygit to get your hands on the real collectible. Our treasury service guarantees safe deposits and international shipping.

warranti is a decentralized marketplace and ecosystem for authentic phygital collectibles, also known as phygits. Phygital is the concept of using blockchain technology to blend physical and digital spaces.
Phygits are a special kind of NFTs - they are also digital collectibles, but they extend to the real world. They are composed of a digital component (the NFT) and the physical manifestation of the digital object.
Once a digital collectible’s physical counterpart has been securely deposited in one of our vaults, the pyhgit’s metadata reflects that change and you can see when and where it is stored along with the security level of the vault.
Additionally the phygit’s digital artwork changes to indicate that the collectible’s physical twin is securely deposited.
Say goodbye to deception, fraud, and counterfeiting
Phygits store all important information like provenance and history of a physical collectible on-chain.
With forgery-proof blockchain technology and complete transparency, phygits are the ideal way to guarantee a collectible’s authenticity.
Supercharge physical collectibles
Phygits add value to physical collectibles by guaranteeing their authenticity and by being able to use them in metaverses

By ensuring that the digital part of the phygit gets burned in the redemption process and preventing redepositing we can guarantee the authenticity of a phygit.

2. When the tangible item gets deposited in a vault
3. When the tangible item gets redeemed from a vault
