Spirit Seed Update - Let The FOMO Begin
By the time you read this newsletter VIP tickets for NFTLA will probably have increased in price from $1500 USD to $2500. This means that Spirit Seeds are yet again (due to low ETH prices and increased demand for NFT LA tickets) the savvy insider's no-brainer path to VIP.
And check these out...
Nicole Buffett is beginning to reveal the Spirit Coin NFTs that we will grant to 10 lucky Spirit Seed NFT holders.
And did you know this?....
Those 10 new proud owners of Nicole Buffet's Spirit Coin NFTs are entitled to the physical artwork as well!
Spirit Coins #36 and #37 ("Live Lover" and "Soul Rejuvenator") have been minted by Nicole and delivered to the Spirit Seed wallet for deployment once all 100 Spirit Seeds are minted. We can't wait to celebrate that moment and also to reveal Edge Co-Founder, Eathan Janney's own final Spirit Seed NFT artworks.
In other Spirit Seed news, our Founders Cards keep rolling in...
Let's celebrate another impressive member of this growing community of incredible doers.
Meet Sheila Darcey...
During a difficult time in her life, Sheila found that the act of sketching and freestyle drawing—of giving a physical form to her thoughts, emotions and ideas—was an impactful way to process what she was feeling. Expression through the pen, she came to discover, can heal.
Sheila is the Founder of SketchPoetic®, a creative expression practice to support mental and emotional health. She's also the author of “Sketch by Sketch - A Creative Path to Emotional Healing and Transformation” published by Macmillan US and Hay House UK.
All sorts of impressive folks are minting Spirit Seeds these days.
If you are not a Spirit Seed holder yet, it's time to FOMO in. Remember to get your Spirit Seed now to access additional bonuses like your own version of the Founders Card shown above for a limited time. At 0.55 ETH, with an NFLTA VIP ticket included (Soon a $2500 value), and tons of other perks, getting your Spirit Seed today is an absolute no-brainer. With ETH hovering under $3000 you may snag a Spirit Seed for considerably less than the cost of the VIP ticket to NFT LA that is included!! Count yourself among an incredible array of NFT Artists, Entrepreneurs, Filmmakers, Investors, Influencers, Authors and all types of movers and shakers soon to be highlighted.
About Spirit Seeds: This is an exclusive NFT collection celebrating NFTs as a new currency of growth, created in collaboration between Edge of NFT and NFT Influencer Nicole Buffett. The Spirit Seeds represent the vision of an economy where more players can win and wherein our diversity is celebrated and rewarded. Among many great rewards, each NFT offsets an average American's carbon emissions—because we also care deeply about our planet's future and want to make it the freshest kind of future imaginable.
As an insider on this exclusive collab, you gain access to a one-of-one Spirit Seed from only 100 generative NFTs that will EVER be created. Edge's own Eathan Janney has carefully crafted generative digital art that's grown out of our relationship with Nicole Buffett and is inspired by her Spirit Coin NFTs.
Mint your Spirit Seed at spiritseeds.xyz through the button below. Catch the opportunity now when 0.55 ETH is so incredibly affordable!

277-Year-Old Asset Class Booms Thanks to NFTs (Here’s How You Can Invest)
With trading volume for NFTs skyrocketing 38,000% since last year, we can’t go three seconds without hearing about fancy primates. But thanks to the NFT craze, the 277-year-old physical art market is booming. According to Forbes, “the rich are spending more than ever on art.”
That’s partly because they see paintings as an investment. In fact, blue-chip art prices have been known to outpace the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021).
And thanks to Masterworks, the fintech unicorn from NYC, you can invest in Picassos and Warhols without being a billionaire. By securitizing multimillion-dollar paintings, everyone can be a bona fide art investor.

Holidayverse is the Disruptive New NFTs Upending Hollywood
Walk Off The Earth and EDH Animation Co-Op present The HolidayVerse! The HolidayVerse is their very own metaverse that will aim to spread the year-round holiday spirit through cultural education, inclusion, acceptance, and awareness. It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Diwali (and those are just the big December holidays) - there’s a place in the HolidayVerse for you!
They also want to create opportunities for everyone to learn about the wonderful traditions around the world that they may not have known much about prior, and will be engaging their community every step of the way. Their book-turned-movie "Ornamental" is the first film to fund itself one frame at a time with NFTs and they're already well into the production process!
Four years ago, in hazy Humboldt County, a creative spark ignited the CryptoGrow’s vision to build a better way to grow their favorite plant—a vision to DECENTRALIZE GROWING CANNABIS. Through their revolutionary genesis product, the GrowOp, they are seamlessly bringing these two industries together for the first time. CryptoGrow is fusing Cannabis and Crypto, and building a community of believers.
Their seamlessly integrated mobile app optimizes and regulates growing conditions to ensure you reap the most flower from every grow—saving you money, headaches, and precious time you could be spending doing more important things (like getting stoned and watching nature documentaries on your couch).
Just add soil, water, and your seeds, and start growing with the touch of a button. For more info, visit cryptogrow.world
