As we head into the end of 2020, the Async team would like to give thanks and reflect on this year’s successes. Not only did we have record-breaking sales in September, November, and were featured in the premier auction house, Christies, but we’ve fostered an incredibly supportive community fanbase in the cryptoart space.
The holiday season has always been a bit commercialized in the United States and we made the hard decision to not host auctions this month. Instead, we challenged our artists to create a gift NFT to their favorite lucky person and give it to them for free!
Starting today, our second Async dynamic header goes live with 24 wrapped presents. Here are 2 ways you can receive a gift.
1) Artists will be manually sending out their gift to their special chosen person via OpenSea over the course of the next couple of days. We’ll start with the first column on the left on the first day, the second column on the next day, and etc.
These are personally crafted illustrations/photographs from the artists, and some may even come with a separate NFT of their own!
2) The Async Gifts will be selected from a list of all Async account users with a registered email. You must have a registered email with your account as we will need your shipping address for the physical presents. To set up an email with us, check out this help article. Rest assured this doesn’t sign you up for any extra marketing promotions -- you’ll have to manually sign up for our newsletter on the homepage for that!
Extra consideration will be given to users who have a high amount of Layer changes, have placed bids, and artists who are constantly making quality artworks. It’s our way of saying “thank you” for using the platform :)
What is in an Async Gift you ask? Well to find out you’ll have to “unwrap” your Layer by going to Layer Changer under your accounts, and selecting the “unwrapped” state to reveal either a blue or a golden Async icon.
These NFTs are redeemable for physical Async-branded goods, also made with the help of fellow artists. Blue gets you a basic package of facemask, stickers & magnets. Gold gets everything in Blue as well as a pick between a 365 Day calendar or the coveted Async Tshirt.
"Mindful Death" facemask - To be fashionable and mindful of others at the same time.
"Pxlpet Action Figure" stickers - Two sheets of different states, so you can customize your own Pxlpet at home.
"ETH Moon" magnets - Two magnets, one for when ETH is up and one for when it is down.
"Beautiful Worlds" 365 days calendar - Experience the magic of an unique image every single day of the year.
Black Async Tshirt - This latest batch features a new slogan on the back: “Welcome to 21st Century Art”.
Please enjoy these gifts and spend some time with your loved ones this holiday season. From the entire Async team:
Happy Holidays and see you in 2021!
