VanEck Community NFT co-founder Matt Bartlett said the tokens could serve as a kind of digital membership card.

VanEck, an investment firm with over $82 billion in assets under management

The VanEck Community NFT, powered by the Ethereum network, features an illustration of Alexander Hamilton dubbed “Hammy” as he travels through time and space to understand past, present, and future financial policies. The New York-based investment management firm believes it can demonstrate the true value of digital assets while providing a forum for investors to learn more about digital assets through the collection. The announcement statement reads:

“Our character ‘Hammy’ will be an excellent guide for anyone who would like to see the past, present and future of finance unfold.”
The loot is divided into common (750), rare (230) and legendary (20). Each NFT holder is eligible to take advantage of multiple unique perks based on these three tiers. VanEck Community NFT co-founder Matt Barlett said the initiative is designed as a digital membership card that offers unique access to events and educates users about crypto assets.

The latest development comes less than three weeks after VanEck CEO Jan van Eck expressed his excitement about “the whole NFT phenomenon”. He is said to have stated that blockchain technology will revolutionize Wall Street and regulatory difficulties have led to an adoption backlog.

VanEck has launched several cryptocurrency offerings. The asset manager made headlines last year when the SEC denied its application to create the first exchange-traded Bitcoin (BTC) Spot Exchange Traded Fund (ETF). However, in November he launched his Bitcoin Strategy ETF, the first exchange-traded Bitcoin futures fund in the United States.
