"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."
The Midnight Ride Puzzle project is a community building event that will take place in the month of March around Ben’s new book. We have partnered with Harvard Econ professor Scott Kominers to build us an interactive puzzle that will be geared around The Midnight Ride, and the community will have a chance to solve the puzzles for prizes! Anyone who purchases Ben’s new book and submits their receipt from 2/22-2/28, will have the opportunity to participate in the community puzzle project that will culminate in some fun prizes!
The “Ben Mezrich Project” will consist of 3 NFT drops and membership levels culminating in the Mezrich "Screenplay Token"
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.
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:
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:
Drop #1: 6,000 NFT collection around the Gamestop drama and meme stock revolution.
*2,500 of the genesis NFT tokens must be sold, to unlock the screenplay.
Drop #2: NFT collection around Bitcoin and billionaires. Free to genesis token holders, one per wallet, free to mint plus gas.
6,000 NFT collection themed around Vegas, card counting and beating the system.
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.
