Digital Arms is bringing an NFT trading platform to the firearm, gaming and hunting marketplaces and Zev Technologies “ZEV” has entered into a long-term exclusive licensing agreement with it for the design, development and marketing of ZEV-branded Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).

“Here at ZEV Technologies we’re big fans of innovation and technology,” said Dan Groce, ZEV Technologies Director of Brand Engagement. “The creation of NFTs by Digital Arms on behalf of ZEV is an exciting new venture that’s outside of the box. We look forward to seeing the expansion of the market surrounding ZEV Technologies NFT’s.”

With the offering, firearm enthusiasts and collectors will be able to purchase branded firearm and firearm accessory NFTs and use them in games and other digital platforms. ZEV Technologies, based in Centralia, WA, was established in 2006 when the company offered the first drop-in replacement trigger for Glocks. Since then the firm’s line has expanded to include its own rifles and pistols.  

“We are excited to partner with a brand that puts so much emphasis on high-end performance,” said Ben Clarke, chief marketing officer at Digital Arms. “ZEV firearms appeal to the most demanding consumers and their performance and quality in the industry is well known. The special attention to ergonomics and aesthetic design will get excited NFT buyers with an emphasis on gaming.”

Firearm NFTs add a new perspective to the traditional gaming industry. Within the Digital Arms platform, users will be the sole verified owner of a digital licensed firearm. The new offering is also a chance for investors and collectors to secure NFTs that showcase the pistol in a striking manner only accomplished with computer-aided-design.

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, continue to increase in popularity. The Digital Arms platform will provide a hub for users to purchase licensed firearm NFTs for collecting or using in games and other popular digital platforms.
