Create authentic brand experiences that blur the boundaries of digital and physical
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.
Take your brand to the next level
In uncertain times, consumers are increasingly looking for a sense of genuineness and truthfulness. phygitals guarantee authenticity and prevent counterfeit by storing item's unique history on the blockchain.
With decentralised ownership, governance and incentives at its core, phygital experiences unlock new modes of participation and engagement. They allow you to create true communities and turn your customers into brand ambassadors.
Engage with your customers directly and bypass any third-party retailers. Phygits allow you to attract a new generation of digital natives, keen for exclusive and immersive brand relationships.
Phygitals give your brand access to the secondary market to generate additional revenue. Phygits have smart contracts linked to them, which means that you receive royalties every time they're resold.

“Phygital NFTs are definitely the future of NFTs. They’re built on utility which is what NFT owners crave.”

warranti is a decentralized marketplace and ecosystem for exclusive, phygital collectibles, also known as phygits.
Phygital is the concept of using blockchain technology to blend physical and digital spaces.
Driven by the unification of the physical and digital realm, warranti gives you access to a radically different ecosystem with unseen consumer experiences.
We provide you with the technology, logistics, and legal framework to enter the world of web3 and elevate your brand experience to the next level.
Phygits are a special kind of NFTs – they are also digital collectibles, but they extend to the real world. They are comprised of a digital component (the NFT) and the physical manifestation of the digital object.
Contrary to purely digital NFTs, phygits offer value in the real world and allow collectors to either redeem a physical counterpart, have a physical item manufactured, or grant access to real-world services.
1. Provide authenticity to your collectibles
warranti opens the door to an entirely new economy that builds trust through transparency. Since phygits use NFTs to represent the digital parts of collectibles as unique cryptographic tokens, an added layer of security protects you against counterfeiting, fraud, or plagiarism.
The origin and ownership of a phygit can continuously be tracked and verified on the blockchain, and warranti confirms the authenticity of each collectible.
2. Phygital collectibles allow trading and owning items without the necessity of moving the physical asset. This makes it much easier for collectors to invest and trade collectibles
a. You’ll get broader exposure for your creations by reaching a whole new target group and creating new revenue streams
b. You can offer collections that don’t exist yet physically
Phygits allows you to offer your digital creations first to receive funding for manufacturing the physical product
c. Increase your brand awareness
Using the power of community and gamification, you can create unseen experiences that transcend digital and physical spaces.
d. Leave traditional marketing and sales behind
There is a new generation of consumers that don’t want to be sold to. They want to invest in authentic brands that provide a sense of genuineness and truthfulness
e. Directly engage with your customers
Web3 is all about the community where decentralized ownership unlocks new forms of interaction, participation, and governance. Phygital experiences allow your brand to directly engage with your audience and bypass third-party retailers, wholesalers, or any other middlemen
f. Benefit from resales
In the physical world, you only generate revenue from the primary market sales. With a phygital approach, you’ll get a percentage of the sale price each time your phygit is sold.
The royalties of each phygit are coded into the smart contract and the payout goes directly to your wallet.
Web3 is the vision of the next generation of the internet which is fully decentralized, democratized, and gives power and ownership back to its users. Blockchain technology with digital currencies, smart contracts, and digital ownership through non-fungible tokens are the technical foundation of this vision.
Web3 has the potential to unlock a more valuable internet for everyone, and is relevant for all the people who believe that a shift from the concentration of services in the hands of a few suppliers toward equilibrium is necessary.
Our phygits are built upon non-fungible tokens stored on the Ethereum blockchain to provide authenticity. All essential information regarding the phygit like ownership, provenance, rarity, or storage location gets stored on the blockchain.
This immutable proof mitigates the risk of fraud because all phygit-related information can continuously be tracked and verified on the blockchain.
Similarly, we store a phygital’s history on the blockchain to always make it traceable who owned it before and verify the authenticity and state of the physical part.
First, in case you already have a physical collection, phygits enable you to enter the web3 space and reach new audiences.
Second, in case you have digital designs of your collectibles but lack the funds to manufacture them, phygits can help you find the right audience. By building a fan base around your collection, your customers become investors that share your vision.
Third, if you face problems with counterfeit, phygits not only help you to guarantee authenticity, but you can generate additional revenue through royalties on the secondary market.
We charge a 2.5% fee when a phygit gets sold. We charge no fees for listing your collection. Also, you don't have to pay gas fees to "mint" a phygit.
Once a phygit gets sold for the first time, the phygit gets minted, and the buyer pays the gas fees (also known as lazy minting)There are a couple of one-time fees when listing your phygit collection on Ethereum for the first time.
After we approved your collection, and you want to finalize your listing, you will be prompted to pay gas fees.
You can set a collection-level fee of up to 10%. This fee percentage can be changed at any time, and your royalty earnings go straight to your collection-defined wallet every time a phygit gets sold.
You can become a creator on warranti and offer your collection if you have a verified address within the European Union (EU) and verify your identity.

8. The vault verifies that you are the rightful owner of the phygit
9. The vault takes photos of the physical asset that get stored in the phygits history
10. The vault completes the depositing process and sets your phygit’s status to Deposited
Whenever the physical part of a phygit gets deposited, our treasury service checks its condition and takes photos of the item.
This way, we validate an item's condition before any deposit and store its state with photos in the phygit’s history.
We work together with certified depot services that offer state-of-the-art electronic surveillance and security architecture.
We have a three-tier process in place to ensure transactions are compliant with regulations:
1. We require our users to perform a KYC (Know your customer) process to establish the legitimacy of a customer's identity
2. Furthermore, we have a KYT (Know your Transaction) process in place to provide continuous transaction monitoring. This way we can detect high-risk activity and prevent transactions with addresses identified on OFAC’s sanction list and freeze deposits from hacks or ransomware. We perform identity and asset verification in the deposit and redemption process. When depositing the physical part of a phygit, we verify a user’s identity, legitimacy of ownership, and authenticity of an asset when it gets deposited.
3. Additionally, the user’s identity is encrypted and stored along with photos of the physical asset in the blockchain-based history of the phygit. When redeeming an asset, we again validate the user’s identity and legitimacy of ownership.
For compliance and regulatory reasons, ownership of the digital phygit does not equal ownership of the physical part. The digital part of a phygit represents proof of ownership, verification of authenticity, and acts as a voucher for redeeming the physical part.
Absolutely. One of the biggest advantages of phygits is that the digital part can already be sold and traded. So buyers of your collectibles become investors that share your vision.
