Over the past few years, the cannabis industry has seen tremendous growth. This remarkable achievement is made possible by its highly supportive and dedicated community. Now, an authority in the space aims to bring this tight-knit group even closer by creating the exciting NFT collection – Phat Pandaz.
Phat Panda is one of the country’s leading legal adult-use cannabis multi-state operators. Founded by Robert and Katrina McKinley in 2014, the brand has since sold more than half a billion dollars in legal cannabis.
The enterprise has grown from an original crew of 30 individuals and now employs 700 dedicated Pandas. In addition, it has cannabis operations across Washington, California, and Massachusetts which carry top-shelf Phat Panda products.
In addition to providing top-of-the-line cannabis products, the company has also amassed a considerable digital presence. Seeing an incredible opportunity to engage this significant following, Phat Panda has created the exclusive NFT project Phat Pandaz.
As its founders insightfully shared, “Our vision is to contribute to the cannabis space by continuing to challenge ourselves every day and bring inspiration and innovation to this industry. We are achieving this every day by blending the most advanced growing techniques with state-of-the-art technology and bringing our customers the best products.”
The collection features 9,898 unique Pandaz NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. Each minted Pandaz is programmatically generated from more than 300 possible traits such as expressions, accessories, headwear, clothing, and many others. While all Pandaz are “lit,” some are rarer than others!
Gifted artists worked on the creation of the exquisite NFTs. MCMXCI, known for blending humor with poppy, color-soaked illustrations, is the project’s design lead. Artist Austin Reed fuses various styles and references city streets, human figures, and abstract influence.
Each NFT holder will have an opportunity to participate in its ever-evolving web3 community that the venture creatively calls the “PandaVerse.”
The community will also have access to the premium PandaVerse Discord, which serves as a safe zone to discuss cannabis and non-cannabis topics. Furthermore, a quarterly invite will be sent to Pandaz to participate in an open PandaVerse forum that focuses on new ideas for the broader Phat Panda brand.
On top of its current perks, Phat Pandaz holders can expect excellent updates in the future, which include but are not limited to the release of subsequent and rare NFT collections, staking, PandaTokens, and much more.
Undoubtedly, Phat Pandaz has created a one-of-a-kind project that focuses on building stronger relationships within the cannabis and NFT communities. As the venture continues to move forward, holders and interested parties alike can expect more benefits and exciting developments.
