Brings Collectors Onchain with Seamless NFT Payments Brings Collectors Onchain with Seamless NFT Payments is a marketplace and tokenization app that enables anyone to own, manage, and trade physical collectibles onchain — bringing true digital ownership, provenance, and global access to the $400B collectibles market.

Courtyard does this by insuring & securing physical collectibles in vaults operated by Brink’s, creating rich 3D models of the assets, and minting them as NFTs on the blockchain. The NFTs can then be bought with credit card or crypto, traded between users worldwide in seconds, and exchanged for the physical asset whenever they want.

The platform

Courtyard supports all kinds of collectible cards — from Pokémon cards, to all varieties of sports cards, to VeeFriends cards. The team also regularly holds curated mystery pack Drops to provide a fun way for enthusiasts & new collectors alike to participate.

Courtyard’s mission is to bring the power of the blockchain to all collectors — delivering a seamless UX that makes it accessible for anyone to use, regardless of whether they have any experience in web3.

A core feature of this is for new users to be able to buy NFTs using a credit card — removing the need for them to purchase and deposit crypto.

As part of this, thirdweb is proud to power Courtyard’s fiat Checkout — enabling users to buy digital assets, with just a credit card, in under a minute.

Onboarding collectors to web3, without the complexity

Fiat NFT checkout on, powered by thirdweb

Courtyard’s mission is to bring the power of the blockchain to all collectors — including those who have never created a wallet or bought crypto before.

But web3 onboarding can be a major obstacle to mass adoption. New users must create a web3 wallet, purchase crypto from a fiat on-ramp provider (needing to complete their AML & KYC processes), transfer the funds to their wallet, and bridge them to the correct chain just to make a purchase. This buyer journey is complex & intimidating, leading to high churn.
