Hro gives fans the opportunity to own a physical trading card with an NFT component, bringing blockchain technology together with a physical in-store presence.

Each DC Hybrid Trading Card by Hro features unforgettable DC characters and is equipped with a unique QR code that connects the physical card to its digital “twin” on the Hro platform. Once connected, the Hro app gives buyers access to a 24/7 marketplace to buy, sell, and trade their way to a complete collection. The app provides a 360° fan engagement platform and community where users can build their card rosters, compete in leaderboard challenges, and unlock the chance to earn money-can’t-buy rewards.
