Logan Hitchcock

Gary V continued his tease that "a lot is coming" for VeeFriends and Book Games NFT holders in a tweet on Thursday afternoon. 

❗Why It Matters

While not much major news has come through for VeeFriends holders in quite some time, Gary V continues to tease that something is coming ahead of the second annual VeeCon, which is slated to take place in Indianapolis later this year. Though little is known about "what" is coming, it does appear Gary V is planning on rewarding his entire ecosystem, not just original VeeFriends NFT holders. 

🎬 Take Action

While little is known, Gary V is encouraging all ecosystem NFT holders to ensure they create an account on the new VeeFriends website.

A virtual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is coming to the metaverse.

They will also be able to view five galleries from the following NFT collections: Boss Beauties, Cool Cats, gmoney, SupDucks, and VeeFriends.

Holders of last year's Thanksgiving parade NFTs and the aforementioned NFTs will have more voting power.

Users will also have the opportunity to mint a virtual gallery pass, from OnCyber, which will be airdropped Dec. 5. The virtual gallery passes cost $50, with all of the proceeds going toward Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

“As we countdown to the 96th Macy’s Parade, we are excited to bring this spectacle once again to the web3 virtual landscape with a fun experience that empowers our fans, collectors and our highly engaged Discord community,” said Will Coss, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “Our genesis collection of Parade NFTs last year was so successful that we wanted to give our digital community the opportunity to select a native NFT design to be transformed into a real-world Macy’s Parade balloon, while also creating an opportunity to raise critical funds for our partner Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.”
