Jewellery brand Tiffany and Co. to launch CryptoPunk pendants at 30 ETH each
30 ETH, 30 diamonds and 250 pendants — The talk of the town now. Tiffany & Co. is making a big move in the NFT world but in its own unique way.
First off, let's see how the luxury jewellery brand teased us in the past months:
March - Bought an Okapi NFT for $380,000 and set it as the profile picture on Twitter.
April 1 - On April fool's day, dropped TiffCoins, a limited-release of 400 18-karat gold coins.
April 7 - The company's Vice president Alexandre Arnault showed off his CryptoPunk NFT as a rose gold-and-enamel pendant.
And now, the brand announced the launch of 250 diamond and gemstone encrusted pendants, exclusively available for CryptoPunk owners to purchase for 30 ETH (around $50,000).
Buyers will receive digital and physical versions of the jewellery. Basically, the holders get to flex their CryptoPunks.
The NFTiff token sale will begin on August 5 at 2:00 pm UTC and will only be available for purchase NFTiff tokens via its website.
Each CryptoPunk owner can buy up to three NFTiffs. If all 250 pieces are sold at current pricing, the brand could profit more than $12 million in ETH.
The pendants can be customised with 87 distinct attributes and 159 colours, while the pendant itself will be made of 18-Karat rose or yellow gold, based on the NFT's colour palette.
Blockchain firm Chain has partnered with NFTiffs to help facilitate the sale.
Twitter is divided about the 30 ETH pricing. Some called it a "corporate cash grab", while others see it as a great marketing move.
Anyway, Is $50k a big amount for a tiffany customer? Highly doubt it!
