Spirit Seed Update - A Refreshing Win
At 0.55 ETH, Spirit Seeds represent an opportunity for a 50%+ discount on the $3000 NFT LA VIP ticket price. Smart insiders are gobbling up Spirit Seeds and getting a nice thick icing on that NFT cake. In fact, they're having their cake and eating it too. That's because the NFT LA VIP pass that comes with a Spirit Seed NFT is just one of the perks. Get your Seed today. Use or trade away your ticket. Then hold onto the Seed for even more perks to be delivered. This includes the refreshing win of saving the planet by offsetting 24 Metric Tons of CO2. That's enough to offset the average American's carbon consumption for a year. It's like sequestering the same carbon as does planting nearly 400 tree seedlings and growing them for 10 years. The effect is greater than taking 5 cars off the road for a year. Now that's refreshing!
Let's check in on another dope member of the Spirit Seed community. He's the holder of Seed number 49. He goes by @moseley in the discord where he's super active and supportive. His IRL name is Greg Knight and he's West Coast-based and enthusiastic about integrating music with Web3. Reach out to him for a collab. We're seeing all sorts of amazing collaborations in the discord. Greg! We can't wait to see you at NFT LA rockin' your VIP pass.

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.

At 0.55 ETH, with an NFLTA VIP ticket included (Soon a $3000 value), and tons of other perks, getting your Spirit Seed today is an absolute no-brainer. With ETH hovering under $3000, and sometimes near $3500 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.

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.
The easy part? We partnered with them and got Edge Of NFT subscribers priority access
