Welcome to the Next Generation of Author Community:  The Ben Mezrich NFT Project

"For years, I’ve had the privilege of doing what I love - writing books and movie screenplays - for a community of readers and fans that enjoy going on these journeys with me, diving into the same timely topics and stories that intrigue so many of us. But what’s bothered me for years, is that I haven’t had a great way to show my appreciation and engage directly with my community of readers. The “Ben Mezrich NFT Project” is my way of trying to address that."

3 NFT Drops  &  Membership Levels

The “Ben Mezrich Project” will consist of 3 NFT drops and membership levels culminating in the Mezrich "Screenplay Token"

Drop #1

6,000 piece collection inspired by my most recent journey into the world of the GME short, meme stocks and taking on wall street.

Release Date: Jan 4th 2022 - Mint Price .06 Eth
*2,500 of the genesis NFT tokens must be sold to unlock the  screenplay. 

Holders of the genesis Mezrich NFTs will be entitled to level 1 access and benefits.

Basic Benefits:

  • Access to discord community chat room where Ben will be one of the participants from time to time 
  • Monthly, live members only Q&A sessions with Ben (to take place in discord or private zoom)
  • Opportunity to win an invite to a “poker with Ben” event, online.
  • Monthly Newsletter/Bonus Unlockable Content from Ben
  • Opportunity to access limited edition merch themed around Ben’s works

Drop #2

Drop #2 (bitcoins and billionaires theme) will be one free (plus gas) per wallet that holds at least one of the Ben genesis NFT tokens in their wallet on date of snapshot.  

Note:  it's one free (plus gas) per wallet, NOT per genesis NFT, and thus there will only be as many Bitcoin/Billionaire NFT tokens as there are unique wallets holding the genesis tokens, and thus will be the most scarce tokens of the three drops, and will create scarcity of the number of complete sets. Release date: TBD

Holders of at least one genesis and one Bitcoin Mezrich NFT will be entitled to level 2 access and benefits - level 2 access includes all of level 1 access/benefits plus these additional ones:  

  • Opportunity to be invited to participate in 1 on 1 or group writing coaching virtual events. Details TBD.
  • Opportunity to be eligible for advanced, discounted, signed physical copies of future work from Ben
  • Opportunity to be invited to future book launch parties exclusive to level two token holders
  • Opportunity to win/be invited to a Blackjack with Ben event live in Vegas (covid permitting)

Drop #3

6,000 piece collection themed around Vegas, card counting and beating the system.

Holders of at least one of all three Mezrich NFTs will be entitled to level 3 access and benefits - level 3 access includes all of level 1 and 2 access/benefits plus these additional ones:  

  • Eligible wallets with all 3 tokens at the time of that snapshot will be invited to receive a Screenplay Token (free plus gas, one per complete set of 3)  which would give holders prorated rights to 50% of any revenue from a monetization of the screenplay Ben expects to develop around the NFT/web3 space.

    *subject to acceptance of screenplay token opt-in agreement, privacy policy and terms and conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will the first drop be?
Drop number 1 Presale will be January 3rd 2022, Public Sale will be January 4th 2022
What will the artwork for the first drop be based on?
The artwork for the first drop will be based on the internet meme and emoji surrounding the “to the moon” rocket ship emoji. This emoji is widely used on social media when referring to communities hoping that a particular stock or asset will go up in value. In particular, this emoji is highly relevant to the work Ben immersed himself in around the GME short squeeze.
Will the first drop have rarity traits?
Yes! There will be 6,000 total NFTs all with specific traits randomized on mint. Some traits will be more rare than others and the rarest traits may be accompanied by a "script score" property which would serve as a multiplier for a holder's eligible screenplay tokens.
How will access to the discord and other token holder benefits with Ben work?
Our discord and access to Ben will be verified via collabland wallet verification.
When will the second and third drops be?
Our goal is to release the Bitcoin free mint 60 days from the first, and similarly the third drop to be 60 days from the second drop.
Will the second drop be airdropped or free mint with gas?
We will announce a snapshot date after the first drop for those wallets eligible to mint the “Bitcoin and Billionaires NFT” for free plus gas.
Will the second drop be one free token for each first drop token I hold, or one per wallet?
Drop #2 (bitcoins and billionaires theme) will be one free (plus gas) per wallet that holds at least one of the Ben genesis NFT tokens in their wallet on date of snapshot.  Note:  it's one free (plus gas) per wallet, NOT per genesis NFT, and thus there will only be as many Bitcoin/Billionaire NFT tokens as there are unique wallets holding the genesis tokens, and thus will be the most scarce tokens of the three drops, and will create scarcity of the number of complete sets.
Will the second and third drops have 6,000 pieces?
The second drop will likely be less than 6,000 pieces because it will be available for mint at a one per wallet ratio.
Will the second and third drops have similar artwork and rarity traits to the first drop?
The second drop will be related to Ben’s work around Bitcoin’s early adopters, and the third drop will be related to Ben’s work around Las Vegas.
When will the snapshot be taken for "Screenplay Token" eligibility?
This will take place soon after the Vegas related drop, and we will announce more details as the project unfolds.
What topic will the movie script be about?
This is still being determined; however, Ben is hoping to base the movie script on his journalistic work into the world of NFTs.
When will the movie script be completed?
Ben will do his best to complete the script within 6 months of the third (Vegas) drop.
If I’m a snapshot (all 3 tokens) holder, how will my portion of the ownership rights in the movie script work?
After all three of the drops above, our goal is to announce a date for a snapshot of wallet holders that hold the complete set of all three tokens. Eligible Wallets with all 3 tokens at the time of that snapshot will be invited to receive a Screenplay Token (free plus gas, one per complete set of 3)  which would give holders prorated rights to 50% of any revenue from a monetization of the screenplay Ben expects to develop around the NFT/web3 space. *subject to acceptance of screenplay token opt-in agreement, privacy policy and terms and conditions.
