NFT in Connected Packaging: Welcome to the land of opportunities


Published by Appelink

The term “land of opportunities” is familiar to most people. These days it can be best associated with some new concepts: The Metaverse and the digital world. We take a look at intangible, but real experiences that almost any business can offer their customers to build a stronger relationship.

Imagine standing shoulder-to-shoulder with your customer and following every step, every moment, and every feeling they have about your product without you being physically present. How is this possible? By finding a solution to connect the moment of consumption with the digital world. Here you can offer something enjoyable and track the customer’s behaviour. Yes, we are talking about connected packaging and the interesting role of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) in the future they offer businesses.

Connected packaging and NFTs

Connected packaging is a sub-concept of smart packaging. It is a current technology trend that helps brands connect physical experiences with digital experiences. You can read more about it in the article What is Connected Packaging? 

Connected experiences have opened new doors for brand storytelling and customer engagement. These are key components of an effective marketing strategy. It’s a unique opportunity to create exclusive content for each customer or reward them with NFTs as a prize for their purchase. All of this can appear on a touch code printed on your packaging with conductive ink. There is no impact on the environment or graphic design in the process. It can be scanned with any type of smart device.

Since NFTs are virtual and unique assets, you can easily personalize them for any target audience. This is even more influential and trendy.

Imagine a CSR campaign through which you can raise funds by offering a branded NFT collection that not only increases your brand awareness. It also retains your branding aims throughout the campaign without mentioning it directly.

No matter what your goals are – from rewarding to branding – you can rely on NFTs. Therefore you can deliver a great connected experience through your packaging.

Networked packaging is also sustainable for communicating information or instructions to customers without printing extra paper.

From the customer’s perspective, they can easily understand whether the product is original or fresh or expired in the FMCG market. Not much time is wasted looking for the date printed on the packaging


In conclusion, combining two modern tools – NFT and connected packaging – can create a memorable experience for your customers, especially the younger generation, who are less interested in owning products and more interested in experiences. The generation that barely allows a company to stand shoulder to shoulder with them! but you do.
