We are very excited to announce that our first NFT was deployed on the Ethereum Blockchain at 6:34 p.m. E.T. on July 19, 2022. It can be viewed on OpenSea here. The following is an excerpt from the press release about this endeavor:
The NFT features the Firm’s founder, George Weiss, and acknowledges important aspects of his personal legacy as well as the Firm’s “Be Like George” ethos. Set against a pixelated backdrop that evokes the view from Mr. Weiss’s office, the Weiss NFT serves as a reminder of Mr. Weiss’s commitment to continuous innovation, ethical transparency and integrity.
“As a global manager, it’s important that we always assess trends that have the potential to reshape how markets, companies and businesses operate,” said Jordi Visser, President and Chief Investment Officer of Weiss. “We believe that the innovation triad of crypto, blockchain and smart contracts will disrupt all aspects of how our economy works as we head towards a future built on web3.”
Added Mr. Visser, “We wanted to go beyond merely reading about the blockchain and actually go through the process of creating an NFT. It was an eye-opening exercise that taught us a lot, and we now have first-hand experience and expert insight in the blockchain space.”
