04/01/2022 by Press Release
The first NFT collection for reggae culture, CryptoRastas, announces the launch of their second auction in collaboration with top reggae artists. It drops on OpeanSea Friday, April 1st, at 4:20PM EST, for only 24 hours and with bids starting at 1 ETH.
This year Grammy nominee Jesse Royal is one of the drop's highlights, together with late great reggae singer and soundsystem owner Sugar Minott. The line up is filled with stars such as the famously energetic performer Anthony B, multidisciplinary artist Jah9, influential selector, turned artist Yaadcore, foundation deejay Ranking Joe, conscious singjay Jah Mason, and underground veteran artist and producer R. Zee Jackson. Representing outernational reggae we have Cali P, from Guadalupe, and the Swedish dancehall artist Million Stylez.
This will be the first NFT for all ten artists involved, and collaborating with CryptoRastas has become a perfect introduction into ‘Web 3’ and the NFT space, allowing them to see the potential of this new economy. This auction is part of a limited edition of 200 avatars representing reggae celebrities, but the complete collection has 10,420 NFTs, which are fictional characters created with the help of a generative algorithm.
This March, CryptoRastas is celebrating 1 year of its first NFT ‘minted’. From the humble beginnings, to the mark of more than 10,000 NFTs sold, the project keeps breaking digital barriers and bringing reggae vibes to the NFT scene, creating an environment where the community can connect through the culture, enjoy benefits, exclusive parties, festivals, exclusive merch, and most importantly, share ideas and help each other in this new space.
Along the way CryptoRastas has been incorporating decentralized communication such as AMA’s (ask me anything) on Discord, meetings at Twitter space, events on the metaverse, and is introducing a DAO (decentralized autonomous organization), believing in a global community deeply rooted in Rasta philosophy and the power of blockchain technology.
CryptoRastas was created by Marcus MPC aka Digital Dubs, founder of the most respected Brazilian sound system from the last 20 years, and later joined by Yaak Studio who developed the generative art system and smart contracts for the project. CryptoRastas have become the premier go to NFT representing Reggae art and culture on the blockchain.
