We have all been affected by Covid to some extent, and most of us have felt frustrated, angry, hopeless, and sad as a result of the restrictions and loss that Covid brought. These emotions are reflected in the Willy Wang characters.
The idea behind Willy Wang’s F#ck Covid! was born out of pure frustration with the Covid epidemic and the never-ending lockdowns in combination with a deep concern for the welfare of disadvantaged communities.
This project is a way to celebrate that life is returning to normal and that we are able to travel freely again. You will have several opportunities to win trips to destinations around the world (all-inclusive with flights, hotel and pocket money!) for you and one of your friends or family members.
You will be part of regular ETH Giveaways. These take place EACH time we reach 1000 minted Willy Wang NFTs, and even beyond the minting process as 25% of the royalties from the secondary sale will be given to NFT holders.
10% of the mint and 50% of the royalties will go towards supporting communities that are struggling to recover from the Covid epidemic.
We invite you to take part of this fantastic NFT journey.
Our world has opened up again and travel has returned to normal. This project is a way to celebrate that we can travel again.
70% of the funds generated from the mint will go towards exciting world-wide adventures. At each 1000 minted, 17.5 ETH will be spent on all-inclusive trips for NFT holders and one of their friends or family members to the destination illustrated on their NFT.
There are 20 destinations around the world included in the NFT collection (the example on the right is a trip to Rio, Brazil). The number of trips given away will depend on the ETH to $ conversion rate at the time. If you own more than one NFT then your chances of winning these trips are of course increased.
The Willy Wang NFTs are beautifully hand-drawn images representing people from all walks of life and from all corners of the world. They express emotions that many of us have experienced during the Covid epidemic.
Inclusion and diversity were guiding principles at the drawing board, and we hope that our brothers and sisters in the NFT space feel well represented.
Our artist, Ivano Nardacchione, has a great sense of humor, which can be seen in the artwork. Though the Covid epidemic brought tremendous hardships to our planet, we believe that these can be overcome with laugher, love and empathy.
An important aspect of this project is to support communities that are struggling to recover from the Covid epidemic. 10% of the funds will be donated to charities and NGOs selected and voted for by the NFT holders.
Everyone will get a chance to propose organizations that they know are doing impactful and meaningful work in their own communities. The work of these organizations will be shared on our website in the form of written reports, photos and videos.
The NFT space provides an amazing opportunity for us to come together and do good in the world. We believe that this aspect of the project will be deeply rewarding for all of us.
Willy Wang believes in member engagement, empowerment and voice. Town hall meetings and surveys will be employed before any decision that affects NFT holders is made.
NFT holders will propose and vote on charities and NGOs. They will also help us plan the next Willy Wang NFT project when the mint has ended.
Mint is live and the price is 0.025 ETH.
Willy Wang believes in honesty, inclusion and fairness, and everyone has an equal chance to mint any of the Willy Wang NFTs. There is no limit to how many Willy Wang NFTs you can mint.
You can receive a Willy Wang NFT in your own image and with your own name and description on Open Sea.
How does this work?
The example on the right is of our truly amazing friend and NFT guru, Daniel Eugene Botha, AKA HashLips.
Note that NFT holders can only participate in the ETH and Adventure Trip Giveaways if their NFT is not listed for sale on opensea.io.
If a NFT holder sells their NFT, then the new owner will be part of the giveaways. The gas price needed for the transaction will be subtracted from the ETH value.
My name is Kim Ekstrom, and I am known as Willy Wang in the NFT space. I am originally from Sweden but have lived in Asia for more than 20 years. I believe it’s important to support people that are struggling. I have been actively involved in community service for more than 20 years, and it has added so much value to my life. Doing things for others makes us feel good and it improves our immune system, so, it’s definitely a win-win 🙂 I am an entrepreneur at heart and have initiated countless projects and start-ups in several countries throughout my adult life.
My name is Ivano Nardacchione and I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I am a digital illustrator specialized in caricatures and cartoons. As long as I can remember, I have been accompanied by a blank page and a pencil, which has helped me share the world I live in through my imagination. Today, living in the middle of the digital era, I can make my dream come true and take my art from Buenos Aires to every corner of our planet. I feel it’s my duty to make our world a more beautiful, more inspiring, more fun, and above all, more welcoming place.
My name is Hardik Hirpara, and I live in Surat, India. I love to read books, travel, and attend UI/UX meets online. I’m an expert Web and Graphic designer, and WordPress developer with 8 year’s experience. I specialize in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Adobe XD, Figma, and website delivery projects. I have helped many companies grow towards becoming global leaders in the IT sector. I love coming up with creative out-of-the-box ideas and help companies improve the quality of their products.
My name is Michael and I live in Manila, Philippines. I was very early in creating my own little travel show on Instagram called “thehappysolotraveler.” Before I knew it, I became a local online celebrity in the Philippines. It was from there I learned all the basics and techniques of social media by myself. My personal account opened my eyes to social media and its secrets as a whole to the point that I finally ventured in lending my talent at Instagram growth to my clients. From there on, everything just went smooth sailing.
It’s for you if you want to:
The Covid epidemic has had a terrible effect on the world population, and it will take time to recover. This project is a great way to support communities that have been hit hard and are struggling to recover.
This is a really exciting NFT investment opportunity. Consider this for a minute:
By this time, you will be a very happy member of the Willy Wang’s F#ck Covid exclusive community, and in love with your Willy Wang NFT(s).
About a month after the minting process has ended, a member survey will be sent out and Town Hall meeting held to discuss the next Willy Wang NFT project.
