Following the successful series 1 launch, the highly anticipated VeeFriends Series 2 NFT  collection launched in April of 2022 and boy have they made a lasting impression.

If you don’t know who Gary Vee is, it’s time for you to find out. Gary Vaynerchuk (professionally known as Gary Vee), is a serial entrepreneur and the CEO and Founder of VaynerMedia, a full-service digital agency. He is also a prolific public speaker, venture capitalist, 4-time New York Times Bestselling author, and was named in both Crain’s and Fortune’s 40 under 40 lists. 

Sheesh, I’d like to have what he’s having.

He is also a well known member of the crypto and NFT community and is deemed to be one of the most influential men in the game. With his renown name and branding and a seemingly long-term success rate, Gary Vee successfully launched his own set of NFT collections.

VeeFriends

In May of 2021, Vee launched his own inaugural NFT collection called VeeFriends Series 1 with 10,255 total NFTs. Within the first day, 3,129 tokens were sold. Fast forward to April of 2022, Vee launched a series 2 of VeeFriends which had a total supply of 55,555 NFTs with 4 mint periods. Owning a VeeFriend NFT comes with exclusive member benefits such as becoming a member of VeeFriends community and access to VeeCon. 

Just recently, VeeCon 2022 tickets were airdropped to VeeFriends Series 1 holders as well as members who exchanged for G.O.O. VeeCon 20202 ticket NFTs through BOOK GAMES Exchange website.  

In the Series 1 collection exists a special set of tokens referred to as G.O.O. (Gary Originally Owned). There are 1,242 G.O.O. tokens that were reserved by Gary Vee himself meaning only 9.013 NFTs were originally available as part of the series 1 launch.

VeeFriends

The NFT collection includes 268 characters all hand-drawn by Gary Vee himself capturing the human traits he admires the most. Each of the characters have alliterative names such as Adventurous Astronaut, Courageous Cockatoo or Eager Eagle. These names reflect the positive attributes that Vee himself values in others. 

What Inspired VeeFriends

According to his website, VeeFriends was inspired by Gary’s ambitions of “building a community around his creative and business passions using NFT technology and their smart contract capabilities.” 

The famous entrepreneur aims to create a positive community focusing on functionality as well as access. Gary spent over 15 years communicating with hundreds of people, and his understanding of human characteristics is meant to reflect in Vee Friends tokens, which provide owners with a ticket into Gary Vee’s successful world.

Since the launch of VeeFriends, Vee’s collection has generated around 49,000 ETH (nearly $160million) in sales volume on OpenSea with an average price of 14.31ETH ($28,121) over 90 days.
