A year after the astronomic rise of NFTs, and they’re proving that tokenized assets are here to stay. Once considered a fad, they have piqued the interest of the general population and emerged as one of the most popular applications in the field of fintech. While it is inarguable that much of the buzz around non-fungible tokens can be credited to their financial utility, it cannot also be denied that they continue to gain momentum because of the extent to which today’s collections have brought people together. Veloce The NFT Car Club, a community-driven NFT project hitting the digital asset industry on March 31, is one such initiative that seeks to provide a platform where like-minded individuals can pursue their passion without judgment.
Veloce’s name is derived from the Italian word for “fast.” A new entrant that is expected to make waves on its minting day, Veloce is made up of 5,000 visually stunning and showcase-ready artwork meticulously hand-drawn by a local Seattle artist whose impressive portfolio includes working for large companies like Nordstrom, LaMarzocco, and more. The collection is born out of the minds of several go-getters operating under the mission to establish a space where car enthusiasts can come together and express their appreciation for their vehicle of choice.
“Giving them a platform eliminates the social anxiety that comes hand in hand with approaching other car enthusiasts,” the founders (cryptocurrency millionaire Adrian Ene-Stroescu, serial entrepreneur Ray Bacova, and renowned artist JJ Demir) explained.
Featuring timeless art backed with meaning and purpose, Veloce is currently piquing the interest of NFT veterans and beginners alike for the quality of its must-have tokens, which combine hand-drawn elements with digital renderings. In essence, its art intends to elicit a feeling of accomplishment and seeks to motivate people from all walks of life to chase after their dreams.

“We are the web3.0 version of hanging a supercar poster on your bedroom wall,” explained the founders. “The vehicles that were chosen are not only proportionally accurate and artistically pleasing but also have significance to the community—they were chosen because we all aim to own them one day.”
But it isn’t only the aesthetic value of Veloce that’s capturing the attention of the virtual asset industry. Its promise of a long list of perks also explains its growing potential. Apart from access to a community of car enthusiasts whose entrepreneurial mindset pushes them to reach greater heights and enable the success of those around them, token holders will be given admissions to exclusive live events across the globe as well. Additionally, owners can look forward to private and secret investment opportunities, the chance to acquire non-traditional assets such as exotic cars and luxury watches, giveaways, performances by prominent musicians, and more.
Veloce will open its pre-sale by the end of March, and 1,000 NFTs will be available to those on the lookout for a community-driven collection that supports and fuels the passion of its members.
