With the debut of the VanEck Community NFT, VanEck announced the introduction of an innovative new option for investors and crypto enthusiasts to join the VanEck crypto community.
This endeavor entails the distribution of 1,000 VanEck NFTs and is intended to demonstrate the NFT structure's real-world applicability.
VanEck, a global leader in the digital assets investment area, said it sees this utility as attractive for both the space and the underlying smart contract technology's long-term growth story.
In addition, VanEck Community NFTs are being developed in collaboration with NUMOMO, a leading worldwide creative NFT agency, and will be launched on the Ethereum environment, an open source blockchain with smart contract capability.
Moreover, the project will follow the adventures of a fictitious figure named Hammy as he investigates the past, present, and future of monetary policy and meets characters who help him accomplish his goals.
For instance, there will be 1,000 total NFTs separated into three categories: commons (750), rare (roughly 230), and legendary (about 230). (approximately 20).
The team emphasizes that holders of each NFT will have access to a number of special perks, which may include early access to VanEck's digital asset research, exclusive invitations to in-person and virtual events, and more, depending on the category of NFT they possess.
Matthew Bartlett, VanEck Community NFT Co-Founder, said,
“We’ve designed the VanEck Community NFT to function like a digital membership card, providing NFT holders with exclusive access to a wide range of events, digital asset research and the insights of an inclusive community of digital assets enthusiasts and investors.”
On top of that, JP Lee, VanEck Community NFT Co-Founder, added that they haven't forgotten about that element of the equation since NFTs initially appeared as a way to showcase interesting digital art.
Furthermore, JP Lee notes that all of their NFTs will have eye-catching 3D avatars and narrative-style movies to assist generate a true sense of story and encourage discussion, debate, and community.
"Our character 'Hammy' will be an excellent guide for anyone interested in learning about finance's past, present, and future," said JP Lee, VanEck Community NFT Co-Founder.
