Wallester, a top-tier digital payments solution and VISA Principal Member, purchases a one-of-a-kind digital collectibles line developed by Astro Frens.
Wallester makes its first foray into NFT segment
According to the official announcement shared in the social media channels of Wallester, it has followed the strategy of its partner VISA in expanding into the digital collectibles segment. Weeks after Visa's much-overhyped purchase of a Crypto Punks collection for $150,000, Wallester obtains 33 astronaut bulls.

The net sum of purchases is over 3.05 Ethers, or about $10,000 at the time of the deal. The collection is created and minted by start-up Astro Frens. Astro Frens made headlines with its out-of-this-world intergalactic bull symbols releases. Proof-of-ownership for this collection is registered on the oldest smart contracts platform, Ethereum (ETH).
As per a statement by Wallester representatives, this purchase is only the beginning of its NFT journey. More and more products can introduce their tokens to Wallester:
As a young company, we want to support projects that are just as young and promising. We love the Astro Frens collection, and we have no doubt that the future is in NFT and cryptocurrency. If you too are promoting crypto- and NFT-products, we would be happy to offer you personalized branded payment card solutions.
Besides investing, NFTs are among Wallester's top priorities: its team offers digital payments services to a variety of cryptocurrency products, including DeFi, GameFi and NFT startups.
