Gary Vee and VeeFriends: All you need to know
New NFT projects are being launched continuously with several themes for making the understanding of NFT ecosystem easier. One such project which we will be talking about today is Gary Vaynerchuk's (Gary Vee) VeeFriends.
Gary, an entrepreneur who is famous for his "Who’s Who of Web5" launched his exclusive NFT project and named it Veefriends.
What is VeeFriends?
The idea behind Veefriends was to make an NFT project centered around Gary Vee's aspirations.
VeeFriends are estimated to contain about 10,225 tokens and 268 characters. These characters have their own intrusive names and range from Empathetic Elephants to Courageous Cockatoos.
Veefriends also make use of the smart contract technology associated with NFTs so that they can provide value to the ones who own the Veefriends NFTs.
Even though there are a lot of tokens, even then each and every token functions as a ticket to the famous multi-day conference VeeCon, which is scheduled to be held over the span of three years (2022, 2023, and 2024).
Veecon will be centered around global topics like NFTs, web3, marketing, etc. The best part? Gary Vee will host these himself!
How to buy VeeFriends NFT?
Here's how you can buy a VeeFriends NFT:
- Create your MetaMask Wallet
- Set up your Open Sea Account.
- Connect your MetaMask Wallet to the Open Sea Account

- Now, head back to your MetaMask and approve the transaction

Another question that arises is how to keep checking up on these NFTs like which one to buy, and what is the status of the previously bought NFTs.
Relax, you have various options to check such things, one of the best options you will find on the web is the Veefriends Discord Channel, this Veefriends discord channel is a great place for all the Veefriends investors or aspiring investors, it is a great way to interact, learn and stay up to date with everything concerning VeeFriends.
VeeFriends discord contains various channels for different categories, which help in getting information about NFTs. You can join these channels directly by searching about them on the web.
These VeeFriends NFTs were a great success for Gary Vee and Vayner Media. Following the success of VeeFriends, Gary launched an updated version of the NFT, called VeeFriends Series 2.
VeeFriends Series 2 contain 251 characters which include 236 characters from series 1 and 15 newly launched characters.
In April 2022, the much-awaited VeeFriends Series 2 NFT collection made its debut, beginning with "Friends List" on April 18, 2022.
The new Masterpiece of 236 characters, which is up for auction on OpenSea, will also be part of the public mint (official link to come). The new, undisclosed sixth spectacular form of one of the VeeFriends Series 1 characters in Series 2 may only be obtained in this manner. More information is yet to come.
The Veefriends Trading Card Game
Obtaining the most VeeFriends collector cards is the aim of the trading card game. The sum of each VeeFriends character's trait AURA, SKILL, and STAMINA is known as their overall SCORE. The overall score is multiplied by a factor determined by the rarity of the card.
Two players begin the game by laying out an equal number of their own cards. Players will face off against each other, turning their VeeFriends cards over one at a time.
The winner is the one who scores their character the highest and gets to keep the other player's card (for good!).
In case of a tie, each player deals themselves 3 cards face down before simultaneously dealing themselves a 4th card face up.
Each card from that round is won by the person holding the highest face-up card. Repeat the preceding procedure if there is a second tie to choose a winner.
All of the cards from that round go to the winner.
VeeFriends has a clear advantage: Gary Vee and his network fully support it. The project has already shown its dedication to offering value to NFT owners.
During the launch, Gary prioritized rewarding his supporters over inviting celebrities. Instead, he took a down-to-earth approach and started his project on Discord.
Interestingly, most Veefriends view the NFT price as a minor expense to gain direct access to Gary. When you really consider it, Gary Vee is the best thing on internet right now, remember? Who would want to pass this deal? Would you?
