SEATTLE, Dec. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The 12 Days of Christmas countdown begins today with VAST Agency, a premiere NFT service provider in collaboration with The Seattle Santa, announcing a newly minted one-of-a-kind NFT that will deliver more than the final bidder could imagine. Available on OpenSea, The CryptoSanta is staging his most ambitious digital NFT image that will deliver a fabulous travel award. The starting bid reserve is 25 Ethereum (ETH) (approx. US $95,000)—with final bids closing end-of-day Monday, 27th December 2021.
With the ultimate goal of reaching up to 100 ETH in bidding, this unique NFT was created for collectors and corporations seeking unique charitable giving opportunities—with proceeds going to Mary’s Place, the largest emergency shelter for women and families in Washington State.
A surprise trip to the city of North Pole, Alaska
Following his first collection of digitally-created NFT holiday images benefitting Mary’s Place, The Seattle Santa and VAST Agency are closing out 2021 with this single-edition NFT token that comes with an added unlockable travel award for the individual or corporate buyer. The auction winner will receive a travel-and-accommodation expenses-paid trip for two adults from anywhere in the continental United States to the town of North Pole, Alaska for three days in late September 2022. While there, guests will accompany The Seattle Santa on his 2022 holiday photo shoot and explore the stunningly beautiful and serene landscapes of Alaska.
A Seattle Santa NFT—Instead of a Partridge in a Pear Tree
Material items are so 20th Century. With the growth of Cryptocurrency investment and the booming NFT art exchanges that can grow in value over time—The Seattle Santa is working with VAST Agency and renowned Seattle photographer Spike Mafford to capture creative, heart-warming poses and settings that reignite our joy and imagination for the Holiday and Christmas season. With a crypto-wallet, Ethereum or Bitcoin tokens—anyone can start investing and collecting.
“I was so impressed with the amazing response and collaboration we got from Mary’s Place and from Paul Norman at VAST Agency as I rode my sleigh onto the Blockchain to create my first NFT collectibles for a good cause,” said The Seattle Santa. “This rare holiday-themed token is a unique 1 of 1—minted to further raise awareness and contributions for Mary’s Place. I will be honored to meet the auction winners in North Pole, Alaska as the snow begins to fall in late September 2022. How fun! Ho ho.”
