Ellen Britt for CNT #NFT
Gary Vaynerchuk, aka Gary V, is known for always being ahead when it comes to digital marketing. He’s done it again with his in person VeeCon NFT Conference.
The Big V spoke with Decrypt before his conference got underway in Minneapolis this past weekend. If you were able to snag a ticket, that’s because you were already an owner of VeeFriends, which is the hand-drawn NFT collection Gary launched a year ago.
$300 Million In Combined Sales
Ownership comes with 3 years of access to a yearly conference plus other goodies. So far, it’s doing awesome, and has garnered over $300 million in combined sales volume. Not bad!!
Joining Gary V onstage (actual multiple stages!) was a roster of luminaries, including NFT artists, influencers and celebrities at the home of the Minnesota Vikings’ U.S. Bank Stadium. Snoop Dogg, Pharrell, Eva Longoria, Spike Lee and other NFT creators plus musicians will perform for the crowd.
Gary has seen the potential that NFTs have from the very beginning to create and cultivate community. As he stated to Decrypt: “Right from the beginning of VeeFriends, I knew that I wanted to show the world that NFTs were more than just a collectible.
Although he admits that many projects will crash, he also thinks the shakeout is good for the NFT marketplace overall and he remains very, very bullish on NFTs and their future.
