“Pearls” is the genesis NFT collection by Ponyo Impact and was created to raise money for our oceans and coastal communities. These 5,555 randomly generated shells with pearls inside are each one-of-a-kind NFT artworks. Proceeds from Pearls will be automatically donated to Surfrider Foundation, and in addition to helping heal the sea, holders will receive royalties on secondary market sales—plus randomly selected perks and token airdrops as part of Ponyo Impact’s gamified rewards system.
Is there a gamified incentive to hold Pearls?
In the four weeks after mint, randomly selected Pearl holders will receive ETH airdrops totaling 20% of the net mint. The value of airdropped rewards will be determined by the total value raised from the mint and may be up to $50,000 in ETH for a lucky holder.
