Over a year has passed since non-fungible tokens rose through the ranks and secured a coveted spot at the top of the game. To date, thousands of collections have hit the scene, all of which are birthed by companies and creatives who are highly cognizant of the value that these blockchain-hosted units of data bring to the table. Given the sheer number of projects that are currently occupying the space and vying for the attention of NFT enthusiasts and crypto lovers, it doesn’t come off as a surprise why it’s proving challenging for entrants to gain a foothold and pique the interest of their target market. This particular difficulty is one that Sean Whalen and Greg W Anderson, the strategic minds behind Lions Not Sheep NFT, had to contend with, but their creative vision and commitment to maneuvering a community of like-minded individuals in the direction of success have allowed the power duo to overcome the odds.
An initiative that started as a seedling of an idea back in 2014, Lions Not Sheep began with a single tee shirt printed and worn by its founder, Sean Whalen, to wake people up to the fact that it was time to stop blindly following the news and media channels. The release of that single tee would herald the beginning of a highly successful career for the purpose-driven entrepreneur who is now dipping his toes in the Metaverse by launching a collection in collaboration with Greg W Anderson.
Composed of must-have tokens that will serve as keys to one of the largest communities in the world, the Lions Not Sheep NFT is set to offer a long list of perks to all its holders. Apart from teaching people about physicality and the body as well as coaching them on wealth management, creation and marketing, meditation and clear consciousness, and more, the team at its helm also plans to host the FreeMan World’s Fair for the benefit of its community. Scheduled for mid-2023, the in-person and Metaverse live-streamed gathering will combine several exciting events to promote freedom.
“Simply put, if you combine a music festival, a gun show, a boat, a car, and a motorcycle show with the best companies and amazing speakers and wrap it all up into a two-day event, you would have an idea of what the fair is all about,” shared Sean Whalen and Greg Anderson. “Your Lions Not Sheep NFT is your entrance ticket for the next three years.”
Currently, the go-getters spearheading the conceptualization and development of Lions Not Sheep NFT are religiously adhering to a roadmap that includes not only the drop of the collection. On top of a public minting on June 13, they plan to launch a play-to-earn video game and donate 1% of their mint revenue to military veteran programs.
