Following the success of the first edition in Paris for EthCC last July, BlackPool wrapped up the LisCon week in style on Friday evening, with another IRL NFT auction organised with amazing partners: Centrifuge, Cometh, SolidNFT, Arke, .arianee x Satoshi Studio, and StakeDAO, and our auctioneer from ORWL Laywers.
And what an auction that was, my friends! We exceeded all expectations for our chosen charities, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
Within an hour and a half we raised a total amount of 45.35 ETH from all the NFTs sales, resulting in a net 36.15 ETH (~$145,000 at the time of the event) for the charities. Let’s break down what happened during this auction of record breaking proportions!
BlackPool - “Alice” BlackPool Posters 1/1. Sold for 2 ETH
We kicked off the auction with BlackPool’s first item from the BlackPool Posters series. It’s a unique commemorative artwork by octOpus, an established comic book artist and the first to be incubated by BlackPool.
100% of the proceeds alongside a subsequent 10% royalties will go to Community Projects initiated by our BlackPool Academy Scholars, starting with The Gaming Community Feeding Programme by Rolando and Angelica, and the Education Programme lead by Joy and Faith. Go check their stories on our blog, here, here and here.
BlackPool x Sorare - “Cristiano Ronaldo” Rare 21/100. Sold for 2.6 ETH
