Gary Vee and NFTs: What Happened at VeeCon?

By (Rain İçerik Ekibi - Jun 14, 7:00 PM

The world of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) attracted millions of individuals worldwide, including world-famous celebrities and business persons. Gary “Vee” Vaynerchuk was among the few who actually took an active part in spreading the word and launched an NFT collection or got involved in the crypto world in some way. In this article, we’ll take a look at how Gary Vee thinks about NFTs, how and why he started his own collection VeeFriends, and what he expects from the crypto world in the future.

About Gary Vee and His Relationship With the Crypto Space

Gary “Vee” Vaynerchuk is a Belarusian-American entrepreneur, influencer, and business personality who is famous for his direct and harsh sounding motivational speeches and attitude. Gary built his wine and software empires mostly on his own, and the latter got him close to the tech space early on. According to him, when he first heard about Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) he did not really understand what they were all about. Despite the initial doubts, proper research resulted in Gary not only grasping the purpose and traits of NFTs, but also evoking an ambition in him to launch his very own collection. 

Gary stated numerous times that his passion for NFTs and cryptocurrencies comes from their unmatched ability to connect like minded people and provide unmatched ways of community creation. After a long build-up, massive advertising, and his constant support, Gary finally released his VeeFriends NFT collection in May 2021 and set the place for a great business/crypto meetup live event called VeeCon.

VeeFriends NFTs: Information, Price, and Future Outlook

VeeFriends is the NFT collection launched and backed by Gary Vee himself. The 10,255 unique pieces feature hand-drawn animals of many kinds and serve as tickets to the decentralized, online world of Gary. Along with the various perks, these highly anticipated NFTs grant membership to a global network of like-minded aspiring business persons who all find Gary’s ways of conducting the optimal solution.

VeeFriends NFTs sold out shortly after they went live, with a 0.5 ETH floor price a piece. Today, the minimum value of any VeeFriend stands at around 7-8 ETH, with the highest sale to-date of a staggering 130 ETH for one piece.

VeeCon, the Most Hotly Anticipated Crypto and Business Event of 2022

VeeCon is the most significant live business event hosted by Gary Vaynerchuk. During this year’s VeeCon, which took place from May 19 to May 22, 2022, in Minneapolis, MN, USA, VeeFriend holders received free entrance for their tokens, and had the chance to directly connect with other invested members of the community, as well as to listen to famous speakers such as Snoop Dogg, Beeple, and Mila Kunis.

The event delivered the expectations, and turned out to be one of the best of its kind to-date within the crypto sphere.

Ending Remarks

Gary Vee is a notorious figure of the global business scene, and his move with VeeFriends NFTs and VeeCon became yet another success story to his name. His community showed the world that NFTs can unite and bring thousands of like minded people from all around the world together, in pursuit of creating things that would have not been possible in any other setting.
