Panini Direct, a proprietary platform of Panini America, is the home for the NFL, NFLPA, NBA, NBPA, NASCAR, UFC WNBA, and Collegiate Sports Memorabilia, Collectible Trading Cards, Entertainment, Interactive Trading Cards, Autographs, Sports autographs, and Exclusive autographs available on the Panini website and mobile app.
The latest change has been providing the next generation collector experience and carrying forward the legacy of Panini Collectibles into the digital world. Panini America has launched trading cards as digital NFT’s wherein users can own, trade, sell or auction NFT’s. The NFTs are managed on a private blockchain built by Panini and the platform provides a primary as well as a secondary marketplace for the users to make the most of their collectibles.
With the increase in traffic on the platform and the marketplaces facing more requests each day for NFT purchases and trades, Blockchain minting and transfer time on Panini’s blockchain had to be optimized to provide a better user experience and save time and money in the long run. Users were facing long waiting periods before they were able to list the NFTs in the marketplace.
