TIME + LOCATION OF THE DROP
Sunday, April 25th on NiftyGateway.com – Packs, Limited Editions, & Auction Start at 6:30 pm ET, Open Editions Start at 7pm ET.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE DROP
**IMPORTANT** Please note the starred items with a drawing component & see the PREREQUISITE section for critical information regarding purchase requirements.
Open Editions – NFTs that are Open Editions are only available for the 15 minutes starting at 7pm. There is no limitation on how many are available during that time. However, after the 15 minute window is up – these will no longer be able to be purchased (forever). If you would like to buy more than 1 Open Edition, each must be purchased through separate transactions.
Trading Cards* – The trading cards are purchased by buying a “pack”. The content of each “pack” is 1 randomly selected card, out of the 6 designs that exist. Think of this as being similar to buying a baseball trading card or Pokemon card pack (with a single card). In this Eminem drop, there will be a total of 888 trading card “packs” available.
Purchase access will be granted via drawing. Starting 6:30 pm ET, you will have a limited 30 minute window to enter for a chance to purchase a “pack”. Users will only be allowed to enter the drawing once. Note the policy/prerequisite of having previously purchased an NFT on Nifty Gateway. [See the PREREQUISITE section below.]
Limited Editions* – Limited Editions are NFT’s that only have a specific quantity available. This Eminem drop will have 2 different Limited Edition NFTs, each limited to 50 units available. Each Limited Edition will come with a print autographed and numbered by Eminem. Prints will be shipped 3 months following the drop and only those holding the NFT at the time will be sent a print.
Purchase access for Limited Edition NFTs will be granted via drawing. Starting at 6:30 pm ET, you will have a limited 30 minute window to enter for a chance to purchase Limited Editions. Users will only be allowed to enter each drawing once. Note the policy/prerequisite of having previously purchased an NFT on Nifty Gateway. [See the PREREQUISITE section below.]
Auction – There will be 1 NFT in the drop that is limited to a single unit. This is a very exclusive 1 of 1 – meaning that only one person can ever own it. To purchase this NFT, you will need to participate in the auction, which will run for 24 hours. Any bids placed in the last 5 minutes will extend the auction an additional 5 minutes. The highest bidder will win the auction for the 1 of 1 NFT. This NFT also comes paired with physical components; EMINEM X CARHARTT JORDAN 4’s, SSLP20 Film Strip Shadow Box signed by Eminem, and a very RARE vinyl print of Eminem’s, “Infinite” album signed by Eminem. Physical items will be shipped 3 months following the drop and only the user holding the NFT at the time will be sent these items. [Pricing will be revealed on Nifty Gateway when the drop begins.]
