Greedy Gramps is set to launch its iconic NFT project in January 2022, featuring artwork that has already yielded attention from the global art fair Art Basel Miami. Launching on the Ethereum blockchain, the 10,000-profile picture drop will mark a new era of community membership and rewards, as Greedy Gramps plans to offer real-world value to its holders through discounted tickets, hotel stays, luxury fashion, and more. Gaining momentum ahead of the launch, Greedy Gramps is a project backed by a network of international celebrities who are set to reveal themselves over the coming weeks.
As a global project, the Greedy Gramps team is formed by talented designers from across the world. In advance of the launch, they will be announcing their set of advisors that is comprised of top-tier crypto experts. The list includes significant names such as YouTuber kwebbelkop, the biggest Dutch Twitch streamer, existing crypto creators such as Conor Kenny and Matthias Mende, and entrepreneurs like Udo Schloemer and Matt Haycox.
A Community with a Reputation
“For the most part, our team has remained anonymous,” says the artist behind Greedy Gramps who goes by the alias Kumart. “But, as we get closer to the launch, we will publicly be dropping the names of many of our partners and advisors who are major names in the crypto space.” The core team behind the project is comprised of a group with backgrounds that span art, technology and culture, bringing this NFT project a well-rounded and insightful angle that will connect to existing NFT-lovers and those who are intrigued and new to the space.
Greedy Gramps has already announced partnerships with JMES and CreativesRow, as well as garnering support from advisory board members including James RT, Marius Krämer, Nick Anderson, and Julie Schloemer, to name a few. “We are looking to build a community backed by reputable names so that we can offer a level of trust and security.” That strategy is two pronged—not only have they gained the social proof of celebrity support, but also, they have solidified their connect to real-world value that humanizes digital assets and allows new participants to connect to the mission and goal.
“We feel that the opportunity to gain benefits in the real world as a result of owning Greedy Gramps NFTs makes us a pioneer in this hybrid space. Treating our membership as more than just a Discord group, which is common with many other hyped NFT projects, we are expanding to offer our holders significant rewards in a way that resembles AMEX Centurion Loyalty Membership Benefits, for example.”
The celebrity community, in combination with the noteworthy artistic designs, and real-world relevance positions Greedy Gramps to redefine what it means to launch a full-scale NFT project, as well as what it means to run a loyalty and rewards program in the real-world. “We see our model as one that will disrupt and reconceptualize loyalty programs outside of the metaverse, initiating a true seamless experience between the digital and the real.”
