To see a non-fungible token (NFT) community care less for itself and more for the people it represents is a very rare sight in the metaverse. The NFT community SurfPunks is revolutionizing people’s concept of organizations in the blockchain by showing that it can stay profitable while focusing mostly on authentic and well-meaning surfers across the world and the ocean that welcomes them with open arms. With only 500 1 of 1 avatar available, it comes as no surprise that all tokens sold out on minting day.
Surfers loving and caring for the ocean have been around for quite sometime long before NFTs became a trending investment platform of this generation. What the community represents is an exclusive group who care genuinely for the overall condition and welfare of the world’s oceans. Surfers also enjoy a nice tan, ocean healing, and becoming part of a special group of people who come from all walks of life. The creators behind this admirable NFT community specially designed SurfPunks as a project for people who cannot afford overly priced tokens in the metaverse. It is, after all, a project designed for the people and the ocean.
On minting day, the community sold tokens for .15 ETH each. Just like the intimate and tight nature of the surf community, SurfPunks is also a small, tight-knit group that hopes to gather like-minded individuals who love the ocean as much as the community’s creators do. Not only did holders become part of a distinct group, they also had the opportunity to grow their investment over time.
All 500 SurfPunks have been bought on their website, but aspiring holders of the rad NFTs can purchase them 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.
The Crypto Surf League (CSL) is also an initiative that SurfPunks developed to provide an educational platform for people who would like to know more about cryptocurrency in general. For a lot of people today, cryptocurrency is still considered an uncharted territory that only a handful can completely grasp. SurfPunks wants to make sure that all of its members understand their options and opportunities by investing in the metaverse. Members get exclusive access to the community on Discord, where frequently asked questions will be given straightforward answers that everyone can understand.
Some of the topics that the community will elaborate on include how to set up a crypto wallet to make trades. This is especially important information for anyone who is looking at the possibility of investing in high-net-worth projects in the blockchain. SurfPunks is all about guiding these people, making sure that they are armed with the right knowledge on crypto basics so they can protect their money and transactions.
Apart from the educational platform, CSL will also give its members exclusive access to future events and participate in worthwhile projects that will support the surfing community. The first event 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, and engage in NFT chat. Holders will also have a chance to meet some of their favorite surfers and icons.
As part of its commitment to serve and protect the ocean, SurfPunks will be donating a portion of its proceeds to the Mauli Ola Foundation, a non-profit organization that exists to provide hope and confidence to people living with genetic diseases. By leveraging the healing powers of the ocean, the foundation introduced surfing and other ocean-based activities as forms of natural therapy to heal the soul.
