Streetwear Meets Blockchain

As the hottest phenomenon in Hong Kong’s streetwear scene and the official guerrilla marketing partner for ComplexCon Hong Kong, NEWAVE stands at the forefront of innovation and disruption in the streetwear world for those in the know. With deep roots in the local culture, collaborating with graffiti artists, cafes, bars, and music festivals, NEWAVE partnered with ZATAP to provide consumers with verified proof of authenticity and a unique phygital experience extending beyond the initial sale.


Authenticity and Collectability

NEWAVE faced the challenge of authenticating its products while amplifying their collectability. The brand sought a solution to tokenize each item, ensuring its unique identity and preventing unauthorized claims of digital twins. Moreover, NEWAVE aimed to bridge the physical and digital realms seamlessly, offering consumers a novel ownership experience while safeguarding their purchases from fraudulent activities.


NFT-Powered Authenticity Assurance

NEWAVE partnered with ZATAP to tokenize each physical item on the blockchain, guaranteeing its authenticity and traceability. With a unique identity and serial number assigned to every product, NEWAVE empowers consumers to claim ownership securely, unlocking exclusive digital content and privileges. By merging the physical and digital realms, NEWAVE pioneers a new era of phygital authenticity and ownership.


Digital Success and Valuable Insights

By offering phygital authenticity protection, NEWAVE has established a clear and compelling unique selling proposition (USP) in the competitive streetwear market. Consumers have enthusiastically embraced the concept of phygital ownership, leading to a significant increase in engagement and loyalty. With 37% of products accessed digitally for proof of authenticity and a third of consumers owning multiple NEWAVE items, the brand has not only enhanced its market presence but also gained invaluable insights into consumer behavior and preferences.
