AUSTIN, Texas, March 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Veteran Entertainment Television (VET Tv) announced today that it will be showcasing its initial collection of NFTs at the ImmersiVerse NFT Carnival during SXSW March 11-14. ImmersiVerse takes place at SXSW in Austin, Texas, and is the premiere experiential destination for arts, tech, finance, and future-culture. As a special feature, NFT Carnival art gallery will join ImmersiVerse with a digital gallery event series for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), bringing together NFT creators, innovators, collectors and media.
The debut of the NFT (non-fungible token) art will feature an initial release featuring four works of NFT art from the collection of a library of original illustrations, over 10,000 photographs, videos, and other media content originating from the archives of VET Tv original content. The collection features never-before-seen exclusive content as well as iconic images and videos that have been shared amongst the community of over 300,000 lifetime subscribers and 2 million social media followers since VET Tv’s debut in 2016.
Todd Brockman, Chairman of VET Tv, said, “We’re thrilled to feature some of the exceptional pieces from the VET Tv Collection by bringing them to ImmersIverse ATX. This art is showcased and created in partnership through VET Tv Digital, which is a joint venture between VET Tv and Xperiential Group.”
VET Tv is also planning on releasing additional NFT collections to increase fan engagement around the company’s scripted series, documentaries, other programming and events.
VET Tv will be dropping an exclusive NFT collection focused on the conflict in Ukraine. All proceeds from the release will be donated to a non-profit that supports their mission. The entirety of proceeds from the Ukraine-specific collection will be donated in support of relief efforts in the war-torn region and to assist with humanitarian aid.
“Our team couldn’t be more excited to be one of the first veteran-owned businesses to bring NFTs to the military community,” said Waco Hoover, VET Tv’s CEO. “NFTs and the larger Web3 sector are going to be a huge part of the economy in the future, and one of our goals is to educate service members about the opportunities in this burgeoning field.”
