It seems that the craze about NFTs keeps going on. No wonder! Basically, they represent a combination of usefulness, entertainment, and potential. They popped up in various sectors and have mind blown many artists, celebrities, achievers, and influential people. GaryVee is not an exception. Let’s have a look at Gary Vaynerchuk’s inspiring project.
Gary Vaynerchuk a.k.a GaryVee
Besides being an entrepreneur, author, speaker, and Internet personality, Gary is the chairman of VaynerX, a modern media, and communications holding company. He is an active CEO of VaynerMedia, which is a full-service advertising agency servicing Fortune 100 clients across the company’s 4 locations.
Gary Vaynerchuk was also notably an early investor in Facebook, Uber, and Coinbase. He is now getting involved with the rise of NFTs.
Release of VeeFriends
GaryVee released his first NFT collection called VeeFriends. The collection consists of 10,255 tokens. The premise of his approach is to create access and serve his community. Each NFT will include a smart contract attached with each token purchase thus giving them „utility“ through metadata.
Gary’s focus is to curate the best experience for his community, bringing enormous access and informational value to all VeeFriends token holders in attendance.
Gary has spent time interacting with hundreds of thousands of people over the past 15 years – what VeeFriends will allow will be a structure around these interactions.
The CEO and Creator of VeeFriends said:
„I have always been about building businesses and creating value for my community – this NFT project allows me to do both. When I saw this macro human trend the only way for me to help others understand it was to be a part of it. I know that NFTs will be here for the rest of my life and I will be actively consulting, investing and advising in this space and I wanted to do it from actually being on the field – doing it myself. I have always believed in being a practitioner of the craft I believe in.“
As stated on their website on veefriends.com, there is a unique story behind each VeeFriends character. Familiarize yourself with all the VeeFriends characters and what each token has to offer, before you purchase it.
Gary has imagined and has drawn all the characters by himself, which gives them a special added value. The NFTs collection characters represent human traits that Gary admires the most. He focused on traits that he believes will lead to happiness and success. He also created characters based on popular culture references. Gary called them friends as he believes that business with friends can be fun. You can build a community around common interests and support one another through friendship, kindness and empathy.
The tokens are available to purchase on VeeFriends.com. The users are able to purchase them using ETH through a non-custodial digital wallet of their choice via dutch auction. VeeFriends will be accepting payments from MetaMask, Portis, and WalletConnect compatible wallets.
This is just getting better. Gary Vaynerchuk and VeeFriends promised a part of the funds from token royalties to various charities that Gary supports. Gary has also created five free scholarship tokens that gives them access to learn from Gary and his professional network. And this is still not everything.
To offset the environmental impact, VeeFriends will be making contributions towards DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) to benefit from renewable energy.
