NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 06, 2021
Victor Villaseñor, three-time Pulitzer-prize submitted and National Bestseller author, is issuing a series of official Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) through ViciNFT representing his own works in support of charity. The first NFT auction begins Thursday May 6th at 9 AM Eastern Time and ends 5 PM Eastern Time May 11th, 2021 on OpenSea at the official Victor Villaseñor auction.
Overcoming dyslexia to write 5 best sellers, Villaseñor has supported over a dozen charities for over thirty years. His first NFT in support of charity, assembled by ViciNFT, represents:
A handwritten quote inspired by his grandmother, Doña Margarita, on the manuscript of “Burro Genius,” which at the time was titled “Witness A Man.” It includes an original picture of Victor in his home in Oceanside, California.
The inscription reads: “It took Victor Villaseñor over 40 years to get Burro Genius into its final form with many iterations and titles along the way, including Witness A Man. The handwritten quote inside this iteration comes from Victor’s grandmother, his inspiration. Victor may sit by himself when he writes, but he is never alone.”
Victor has signed the quote in the NFT with his unique signature. Consistent with all ViciNFT offerings, 25% of NFT auction revenues will go to one or more charities. Bidders may bid on the NFT on OpenSea using Ether (ETH).
Victor Villaseñor’s NFT designer, ViciNFT, is the leading carbon-neutral provider of NFTs, and, beyond a mandatory 25% of revenues provided to an artist or authors charities of choice, ensures an additional donation to a climate conservation fund. ViciNFT is led by Bill Gladstone, a literary agent and best-selling author who has represented Marianne Williamson, Eckhart Tolle, musician Neil Young, Pamela Anderson, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and Thom Hartmann. ViciNFT helps creators like Victor Villaseñor curate, design, market, and nurture NFTs and digital collectables for the common good.
Regarding the launch of the first NFT in support of charity, Victor Villaseñor said: “I am honored to be the first author providing Vicinft with author-based collectables.” He added, “I owe my success as a writer to my family, my high school English teacher, and to the many wonderful authors whose books I have read and who have inspired me. I am sure that NFTs will inspire future writers and provide funds which will be helpful to the many charities I have supported over the years, especially those that help our young people to realize that we are all geniuses and our main job today is to help heal our beloved Mother Earth and take us humans off the most endangered list.”
Regarding Victor Villaseñor’s first NFT, ViciNFT partner Bill Gladstone noted: “This is a ground-breaking opportunity to recognize creative artists, musicians, authors, poets, and visionary thinkers. Victor Villaseñor is one of ‘America’s most cherished authors. His books are assigned to tens of thousands of students annually and Victor’s favorite activity next to writing is giving presentations at kindergartens, high schools, and universities throughout the U.S. and abroad. Victor is the epitome of a generous soul making him the ideal creator to launch a collection of unique NTFs for our global, common good.” Mr. Gladstone adds: “I represent many wonderful authors whose books have raised awareness of important global issues. I anticipate that the success of Victor Villaseñor’s Official NFT series will create opportunities for many authors and artists to help millions of people throughout the world.”
The results of Victor Villaseñor’s first NFT auction will be announced Tuesday evening from the ViciNFT website following the close of the auction on OpenSea at 5pm ET on Tuesday, May 11. Those looking to bid on the auction should proceed to the official Victor Villaseñor auction.
