A Pioneering Launch – Appleton Estate 17-Year-Old Legend in NFT Format
The grand plan involves releasing the much-acclaimed Appleton Estate 17-Year-Old Legend in an unmatched NFT format. This move will serve to fortify the notable rum’s standing in the nascent field of digital asset trading.
This exciting initiative plans to transform 36 bottles from the limited edition of 1,500 into NFTs. For this, the acclaimed Oneika Russell, Jamaican Visual Artist, collaborates artistically to produce NFT designs that encapsulate the vibrant Jamaican spirit, drawing from the rich Caribbean tropical patterns.
Further, each NFT in this series will hold a unique connection to the physical bottle it represents. Owners will need to “burn” their NFTs to claim the actual rum bottle. Moreover, for sale exclusively on Blockbar, these NFTs will carry a price tag of 0.27 ETH (around $500). The sale kicked off yesterday at 4:00 PM CET.
