[PRESS RELEASE – Vegas, Nevada, 1st July 2021]

Seven one-of-one digital collectibles will be available via auction starting Thursday, July 1 at 9 am PT on Crypto.com/NFT

Vegas Golden Knights Chief Marketing Officer Brian Killingsworth announced today, July 1, that the team has launched their first series of collectible NFTs (non-fungible tokens). There is a limited run of only eight VGK NFTs in the inaugural batch, seven of which will be featured on Crypto.com/NFT in an auction-based format for a limited time of only 48 hours, starting on July 1 at 9 a.m. PT. These seven NFTs up for auction will have premium physical redeemables tied to them as well.

In addition to the highly exclusive, one-of-a-kind seven VGK NFTs up for auction, the team will also be issuing 1,500 digital-only versions of their “Gold Drip” coin collectible. These will be sold for $50 each and will be available for purchase for a limited 72 hours.

Descriptions of the NFT concepts and artwork can be found below. Minted by the Golden Knights on the Crypto.org Chain, each NFT is a digital collectible containing a unique serial number that guarantees scarcity and protects ownership on the blockchain. Crypto.com/NFT is a carefully curated platform for collecting and trading non-fungible tokens by creators, celebrities and brands from the worlds of sports, entertainment, art and design. Established in March 2021, Crypto.com/NFT is powered by Crypto.com — which serves over 10 million customers with the world’s fastest-growing crypto app, the Crypto.com Visa Card, the Crypto.com Exchange and the Crypto.com DeFi Wallet.

“The Golden Knights are one of the most exciting franchises in NHL history, both on and off the ice,” said Crypto.com Executive Vice President and Global Head of NFT Joe Conyers III. “The thought and care they’ve put into this inaugural drop — not just with the artwork itself, but with so many amazing redeemables — is a testament to how dedicated their organization is to its fanbase. Hockey fans and NFT collectors alike will be thrilled; from a chrome gold team-issued helmet to a VIP package that includes a tour of the T-Mobile Arena, a Zamboni ride and the opportunity to watch pregame warm-ups from the penalty box at a Golden Knights game, these are really some first-class experiences.”

“We are always exploring new, innovative ways to engage our fans,” said Vegas Golden Knights Chief Marketing Officer Brian Killingsworth. “We view NFTs as an emerging space that has generated significant interest and momentum in recent months. We hope Golden Knights fans and collectors alike appreciate the creativity and meaning behind our designs, as well as the unique redeemables associated with the winning bids. We look forward to our upcoming launch on July 1.”
