How to Claim a Souvenir NFT
If you have tickets to one of The Weeknd’s shows listed above, you’re in luck — an official Souvenir NFT is waiting for you. But how can you claim it?
Step 1: You will receive an email from Ticketmaster (domain name: @ticketmaster.com) with a link and an NFT code to claim your exclusive Souvenir NFT. Select [Claim] and you will be redirected to the claim page. Select [I’m not a U.S resident] to continue.
Codes are being sent in batches, so if you qualify, but have not yet received yours, please be patient. It may be sent out closer to the date of your particular show.
Step 2: Select [Log In / Register] to log into your Binance account. If you don’t have an account yet, follow the sign-up instructions; there is no additional fee if you sign up to claim your NFT. To receive your NFT, please ensure you have already completed Identity Verification for your account.
Step 4: Now that you’ve successfully claimed your NFT, it will be distributed to your account instantly. Select [Share with friends] to share the NFT to your social media account.
Step 5: To view your NFT, select [Check your NFT Wallet], and you will be redirected to your Binance NFT account. If you haven’t completed Identity Verification for your account, you will be prompted to do so before you can view the NFT.
Please note that each account is limited to one Souvenir NFT; these NFTs are available while supplies last. If you bought multiple tickets, you may share the corresponding redemption codes with other attendees who did not receive one. We look forward to seeing you at the tour!
Souvenir NFTs Explained
If you’re new to crypto, you may be wondering what these Souvenir NFTs are all about. What is an NFT, anyway? Well, an NFT (non-fungible token) is a type of digital asset that’s unique and cannot be replaced by any other identical item. In short, they are tokens that represent the ownership or authenticity of a unique piece of digital content.
In the case of the Souvenir NFTs created by Binance in collaboration with The Weeknd, these tokens help fans make and preserve an official digital record of their attendance of the tour.
Essentially, it’s a 21st century version of keeping ticket stubs or physical concert stickers as memories. It can also be a fun and easy introduction to Web3 and blockchain tech, and unlock exclusive access to more of The Weeknd!

“We have incredible momentum as we embark on the second chapter of the tour. The response has been simply amazing, and we have the support of Binance to thank,” says The Weeknd. “The global leg will showcase the innovative and creative nature of crypto in a way that hasn’t been done before. We’ll see you out there.”

Indeed, it’s always best to do your own research (DYOR) and make up your own mind before embracing something that seems foreign and complex. But where should you start?
