On Friday, May 7th at [12pm IST / 11:30pm PDT (May 6th) / 2:30am EDT], food world traveler David Hoffmann will drop 21 unique 3D animated NFT collectible art pieces, which will integrate snippets from his never before seen content from each corresponding Indian city. David is the first in his space to utilize his likeness and platform to drive awareness of the impact COVID has made throughout India, donating all proceeds of the NFT drop to India Relief efforts. All NFT bidding will start at a lower price point, making it affordable for his fanbase and NFT purchasers.
David collaborates with leading NFT strategic agency NAFT for his first NFT campaign in coordination with his management agency God & Beauty, and up-and-coming NFT artist Kenny Phases.
“I always look to the newest trends and groundbreaking technologies, and I love the idea of owning a piece of someone’s legacy. Whether it’s to flip and re-sell it in the future or just because you love someone’s digital art, it’s humbling that someone may want to own a bit of something so special to me,” said David Hoffmann.
