Introducing Jeremy Lin NFTs presented by Reel8 on Galxe

Former NBA star Jeremy Lin, along with Reel8 and Galxe will be dropping his first film NFTs for the “Linsanity” documentary, to support the Asian American community. Galxe is proud to play a part in this initiative by distributing allowlist spots through a series of campaigns.

100% of Lin’s sale proceeds will benefit the Jeremy Lin Foundation which supports overlooked and underserved AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) and cross-racial youth programs through narrative change, community empowerment, and cross-racial solidarity.

The Linsanity NFT Drop features access to unreleased director’s cuts and behind-the-scenes footage of the Lin family documentary and gives fans of Linsanity the opportunity to unlock exclusive Metaverse content, including a high-stakes three-point shooting game, through which NFT-holders can meet Jeremy Lin within a live AMA.

“I’m no NFT expert, but when Reel8 shared their vision to create a fan community supporting AAPI filmmakers and the Jeremy Lin Foundation, I was game.” — Jeremy Lin tweeted on March 24, 2022

How do I claim my allowlist spot for the drop?

The campaign will be held from May 4th 2022, 00:00 (UTC) till May 24th 2022, 23:00 (UTC), and in order to claim their allowlist spot, fans will have to complete required tasks and collect the voucher tickets.

The campaign will have a multitude of different tasks for participants to access their allowlist spot. For example, they will be able to accomplish social media tasks by taking actions such as following Jeremy Lin, Reel 8 and Galxe on Twitter and Instagram. Other tasks will have fans engaging in more active ways, with quizzes on Jeremy Lin’s Instagram stories and AMA series (Ask me Anything) on Twitter Spaces and Discord.

How to claim:

Only Voucher holders will have the prioritized access to the official Minting event. On May 25th 2022 (UTC), Galxe will take a snapshot of all Voucher NFT holders.

“The vast majority of NFTs miss the mark when it comes to providing society meaningful benefits — that’s why we’re excited to launch the Jeremy Lin Linsanity NFT Collection. We believe it will set a new standard by enabling underrepresented filmmakers to reach new and existing fans of their art through direct engagement with members of their audience, while simultaneously supporting social causes like the Jeremy Lin Foundation.” — Reel8 Co-Founder Dave Liu
