With many NFT marketplaces around, Hendrick’s Gin opted for a premium branded webshop where they could have control about the user experience and the way the NFTs are presented to the buyers.

For the payment of the NFTs, Sayl works together with Australian based Banxa, a leading Payment Service Provider that is primarily focused on payments in the web3 space. Banxa takes care of all compliance and regulatory matters during the purchase, allowing consumers to buy NFT in a secure and confident way via traditional fiat currency, opening up these NFTs also to mainstream buyers that do not own crypto currencies.

“With Sayl, we are building the gateway for businesses into web3 with functionalities like NFT online shops, and while doing that, we are happy to work together with partners such as Banxa and Hedera, the carbon-neutral distributed ledger where the NFTs are minted. We’re incredibly excited to work together with Wavemaker as this could be the start of a long-term relationship”, says Sayl’s co-founder Benoit Hossay.

Banxa CMO Gregor Cooney says: "Web2 companies moving into Web3 right now makes perfect sense - the spotlight is on. Being able to showcase our fiat to NFT partnership with Sayl on the Hedera blockchain, along with a premium brand like Hendricks via Wavemaker opens the door to many collaborations to come with leading brands wanting to enter the NFT space with ease”

Wavemaker's Head of Innovation Damien D'Ostuni added “As we were looking for carbon neutral partners, it was very natural for us to suggest Hendrick’s gin the collaboration with Sayl and Banxa both using the Hedera Blockchain. Moreover, thanks to this partnership we allow non crypto owners to become (maybe for the first time) NFTs owners by removing all the barriers they could have with Cryptocurrencies. We are very proud to be part of this wonderful project supporting a good cause and thanks to all the partners being very agile and reactive in the implementation making it possible to be live in no time.”
