Alongside connecting them with rare “In-real-life” experiences within the motorsports world
London, May 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Another overlap between the NFT community and mainstream sports as Pierre Gasly announced his special helmet for the first ever Miami Grand Prix. With further utility on top when redeeming these NFTs, granting access to the most exclusive grand prix experience in Monaco.
Inter-connecting the earlier days of the internet, when this art style for the helmet emerged; vaporwave aesthetics graced corners of the internet and later popularized through several notable mainstream mediums, including a notable TV Show “Miami Vice”; correlating to the early-adopters of NFTs of today.
The collection is aiming to break ground on NFT utilisation by granting NFT holders access to unique experiences unavailable in public sale. Accompanied with cherished memorabilia from the driver himself as well as meet and greets.
On May 2nd, three unique (1/1) NFTs featuring his helmets will be put up for auction on gasly.infinitynft.net, including a celebrated helmet that marked Gasly’s rise to the top of motorsport. Bids for these items will start at 0 FTM:
- Miami GP Helmet | 2022: Special One-Off Helmet featuring the Vaporwave Design for the highly anticipated 2022 Miami GP. The NFT used in Gasly’s announcement for his Miami GP Helmet.
- Monza Winning Helmet | 2020: A celebrated helmet from Gasly’s first race victory in Monza, an iconic race track in Formula 1™ history.
- Pierre Gasly’s Helmet | 2022: Brand new helmet design for the 2022 Formula 1™ season, featuring the Fantom Logo.
On May 5th, a Pierre Gasly Helmet Collection NFT Series will drop, consisting of an exclusive Fantom x Gasly Helmet design, raced last month during the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. These will be on direct sale, with the fixed price of 125 FTM or 125 TOMB.
“I am really happy to continue my journey with Fantom and build on the success of our first NFT drop. For this second one, we wanted to launch an NFT collection that would summarize my career, and we decided to feature each of my helmet designs as unique NFTs. This way, the collection will keep building as I collaborate with designers and artists for my future helmets. Hopefully, some of those NFTs will become more valuable as I progress in my career. As for the first drop, we are linking tangible collectibles and VIP experience to the NFTs as we really see this as a new way to engage with the fan community and reward them for their support.”
