Trip.com has officially set sail in the world of Web3! The travel services company has confirmed its foray into the non-fungible token (NFT) ecosystem by incubating its first collection called “Trekki.”
The collection will consist of a total of 10,000 NFTs featuring drawings of different dolphins, and the incubation of the collection will begin in the third quarter of 2023 when they will be sold through blind boxes on the official Trekki website, which is already open for registration for interested individuals.
It has also been confirmed that the non-fungible tokens will be classified based on their scarcity, and each digital collectible will have a unique personality and various travel backgrounds. The goal is to connect Web3 users from around the world with the tourism industry and allow travel enthusiasts to further appreciate unique experiences and enjoy exclusive benefits through Trekki NFT on Trip.com.
Furthermore, the travel company’s team has confirmed that the NFTs will feature a unique gamified growth mechanism. This means that the more a Trekki holder travels, the more benefits they will unlock through their digital collectible.
As mentioned earlier, Trekki is a project led entirely by Trip.com and marks the company’s first foray into the Web3 ecosystem. As a result, it becomes one of the early global travel services providers to explore the NFT market by incubating a collection.

Travel to Grow
This means that as users who own a Trekki NFT, they will be able to nurture and shape their NFTs using various resources available on the Trip.com platform. This includes using orders, badges or membership levels, participating in NFT staking, and much more.
All these services will further enhance the value of the digital collectible, as not only will the owner benefit from exclusive discounts on flights and hotels, but they will also have access to premium Trip.com memberships and unlock multiple additional benefits.
It has also been confirmed that owning a Trekki Collection NFT is similar to having tickets to Trip.com events such as music festivals, food parties, carnivals, and more, where NFT holders can actively participate using their non-fungible tokens.
This means that beyond acquiring a digital asset, this project aims to add an extra layer of excitement and engagement for Trekki holders, turning a digital asset into a gateway to countless unforgettable experiences in the real world.
Travel to Win After acquiring an NFT, users have the option to stake their NFTs on the official Trekki website. Depending on the unique attributes of their collectibles, holders will be rewarded with tokens that can be redeemed for various products and services from the brand.
Among the benefits that can be found are:
- Physical products related to the intellectual property (IP) such as hats, clothing, and mugs featuring the dolphins.
- Experience points, evolution stones, and discounts on the company’s upcoming NFT launches.
- Gift cards, coupons, membership trials, and free hotel stays.
- Redeeming free non-fungible tokens from other brands.
