At the edge of cutting-edge

On July 13, 2021, HyperloopTT is releasing the first in a series of exclusive one-of-one NFTs on the SuperRare platform. The upcoming auction of the world’s first hyperloop-inspired NFTs commemorates the progress that HyperloopTT has made towards realizing commercial hyperloop systems. 

Founded in 2013, HyperloopTT is leading the development of innovative hyperloop technology for commercial applications. The system, which combines centuries of technical learnings from across industries with new innovations, will revolutionize the way we move. For the first time in civilization’s history, city centers will be connected in minutes via sustainable high-speed transportation.

Like all technological breakthroughs of the past, hyperloop travel will redefine the way humanity lives, works and connects. Similarly, NFTs represent the frontier of digital assets, allowing the physical and digital world to converge. At HyperloopTT, we see new ideas as catalysts for progress. That’s why today we announced the release of exclusive HyperloopTT NFTs

Blockchain, from buzzword to operating system

For years, blockchain captivated millions as the future of the internet, but only in the last few years has the general public been introduced to the transformative potential of the technology. What started as the little-understood technology serving as the foundation of cryptocurrency has gone mainstream. People all around the world are investing in digital goods, secured using blockchain networks. 

While introduced to the public through digital art, real estate and currency, blockchain plays a critical role in the evolution of nearly every industry. From identity security to music royalties, anti-money laundering and supply chain logistics the widespread applications are limitless. 

HyperloopTT is leveraging blockchain technology across our system architecture to enable an entirely new travel experience. NFTs are merely the first public activity of many more to come that we will announce and release at later dates. By releasing exclusive NFTs, we are celebrating the technology’s potential and increasing our own internal familiarity with future applications. Today is an opportunity to connect with the passionate community surrounding this transformative new industry.

The innovative technologies that make hyperloop possible

The basic concept of a hyperloop is centuries old, but only now does the technology exist to build a sustainable and profitable system capable of bringing airplane speeds to the ground. Since our founding, HyperloopTT has developed innovative technologies that few people thought possible.

Together with our partners, we’ve turned what some called a crazy pipedream into a reality.  We partnered with Leybold to pioneer a modular vacuum system capable of creating, maintaining and controlling a low-pressure environment across hundreds of kilometers. Developed the first generic safety and certification guidelines for hyperloop systems in collaboration with TÜV SÜD and Munich Re. And built the world’s first full-scale hyperloop test track and capsule fuselage.

We’ve testified in front of the United States Congress and released the most comprehensive hyperloop feasibility study showing the transformative economic and environmental benefits of our system. Now, we are celebrating the cities included in that study for their role in bringing commercial hyperloop systems to life. Over the next three weeks, the public will have the opportunity to bid for exclusive Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh NFT travel posters at

The world we live in is evolving. Leveraging technical innovations, we can meet the needs of today and create a better future for us all. Every day, HyperloopTT’s global network of employees, contributors and partners embrace innovation to build the world we want to live in.
