While more and more people are drawn to the investment potential of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), a large part of the world’s population are still unaware of its many benefits. A lot of people may have heard of cryptocurrency, but not everyone understands what it is, how it works, and how one can earn from it. Emerging NFT community SurfPunks wants to make sure that its surfer members are well-equipped should they find it in them to invest in crypto in the future to expand their portfolios. Through its Crypto Surf League (CSL), it hopes to give surfer investors the confidence they need when they invest in crypto.
SurfPunks understands the challenges that many people face when crypto is brought up. Most of them cannot wrap their hands around how they can earn from digital artworks, photos, and video games within the metaverse. By educating its intimate number of members, it hopes to change the way they see crypto as an investment option. Owning a SurfPunks token gives holders exclusive access to the community on Discord, where frequently asked questions will be given answers that will provide members with clarity. They can learn basic information, such as how to create a crypto wallet, so they can start trading. This simple information is most helpful to investors who want to pursue high-value projects, and the SurfPunks is more than willing to help them navigate their way around.
Aside from getting the right kind of information from the community’s educational platform, CSL also enables members to enjoy participation in future projects, surfing events and extend valuable help to the surfing community in general. This initiative has the potential to unite both worlds – surfing and NFT – long-term. This will benefit not only the present generation but also future ones.
The first exclusive event for SurfPunks holders will be held in Waco, Texas, on March 21st at the BSR WavePool and Resort. This is an exclusive day for holders to surf on the man-made wave pool, experience live music by a special guest, eat food, engage in NFT chat, and even get a chance to meet some of their favorite surfers and icons.
Alongside its mission to give common people an opportunity to invest in affordable NFTs compared to some of the most pricey ones is its goal to promote the value of the ocean. SurfPunks is committed to donating a portion of its proceeds to the Mauli Ola Foundation, a non-profit organization that specializes in offering hope and confidence to people with genetic diseases. The foundation harnesses the healing powers of the ocean to help its recipients experience joy and recovery by using surfing and other ocean-based activities. The foundation’s therapeutic approach has resulted in great improvements in the overall well-being of its recipients.
The SurfPunks tokens were sold at 0.15 ETH each on minting day and were sold out on the first day. Five hundred unique and collectible characters were made available to holders, each featuring a unique combination of traits that make each avatar very distinct. The creators of the community intentionally designed the NFT space to be intimate and very exclusive, much like the surfing community. The characters are carefully hand-drawn, depicting personalities that will suit all of its investors. Some of them are inspired by iconic personalities in real life, specifically the surfing arena.
All 500 SurfPunks have been bought on their website, but aspiring holders of the rad NFTs can purchase them on a secondary market at OpenSea.io. There’s also a second collection of SurfPunks in the works. This collection will prepare SurfPunks to live in the metaverse and will provide much more utility in the digital space. They are also gearing up for big partnerships.
