According to Lou Frangella, FTX VP of Partnerships, the vision with the F1 Ethereum NFT launch in Miami is to merge culture, art, and Formula One in one grand event.
They really want to make it big in Miami and it’s bound to happen especially for an event with this one-of-a-kind lineup.
NFT Auction Starts May 6
Bidding for the F1 NFT event will open on May 6, which also commences the start of practice for the Miami Grand Prix. Auctions will then run until May 13.
Meanwhile, FTX and F1 will also be hosting a physical NFT gallery that allows guests to view and experience the artworks in physical form after seeing its fast-and-the-furious version on the tracks.
Apart from the glitz and glam of this NFT event, proceeds from the F1 NFT sale will go to Ignite, an initiative co-founded in collaboration with F1 Hamilton’s Mission44 Foundation promoting motorsport inclusion and diversity.
