How does it work?

“Nimiq is so easy to use, but so far the Nimiq Shop has been the only place I can actually buy something.”

Use your NIM everywhere! The Bidali gift card service opens the door for Nimiq users to buy from over 150 merchants in 4 countries: USA, UK, Australia, and Canada. From a cup of coffee to the latest album of your favorite band, your NIM now holds the potential of buying almost anything you want! This marks the first step into the tangible world and opens a wide range of new options on how to use your NIM.

What about the Nimiq Shop?

Aside from NIM being accepted on Bidali’s website, Team Nimiq began a technical collaboration with Bidali. Thanks to this partnership, Bidali has provided access to their SDK which allows for any website to use their backend to buy gift cards.

Thanks to Nimiq being native to the web and Bidali’s JavaScript-based framework, it was possible to integrate Nimiq and Bidali quickly and seamlessly with a few efficient lines of code. This integration is a testament of how fast, easy and convenient it is to create web apps using Nimiq. NimiqGiftCards.com was built as side-project by frontend developer Sören, you can find the code on GitHub.

Just the beginning

With a new website on the way, Bidali’s collaboration couldn’t have reached Nimiq at a better time. For the long-term, we’re analyzing possible benefits Bidali could get from the non-custodial crypto-fiat bridge Nimiq OASIS, and, for Nimiq, potential benefits from Bidali’s financial backend and distribution channels.
