This Thursday, Vail Valley Crypto Club is hosting its first annual Ski & Ride NFT Scavenger Hunt on Vail Village and Vail Mountain.
Well Valley Crypto Club was founded by Dylan Bradley in September 2021 as a social group where both seasoned cryptocurrency enthusiasts and newcomers to the space can come together to learn and talk about developments in the crypto world.
Now half a year old, Bradley said more than 70 people have attended at least one of the monthly meetings, and he encourages anyone interested in the topic to join the club.
“We have people who have all different levels of experience in crypto and all the different exposures,” Bradley said. “I just want to provide an educational platform for people interested in crypto and interested in getting involved in the space.”
Bradley is brainstorming ways to engage more people and make cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) accessible to more community members. They said that they are creating free NFTs to celebrate Well Valley Crypto Club meetings, and they came up with a unique idea – an NFT scavenger hunt.
Bradley said, “I saw that the platform I’m building this NFT on did a scavenger hunt in New York City a while back, and I was like ‘this sounds cool’.” “I was thinking about the events for March, and thought I’d ski and ride the NFT scavenger hunt.”
To create a scavenger hunt, Bradley is putting up code words in Vail Mountain and various locations around the village. Participants are asked to download two apps – MetaMask and PoAP – to set up the hunt. Once set up on the app, participants will discover hidden code words that can be entered into the app to unlock more than 10 free NFTs that Bradley created especially for the event. Each NFT found will be used as a ticket to a raffle at the end of the day.
Bradley said the activity will help those with no familiarity with NFTs or digital wallets understand how the space works, as well as build community.
“That’s the goal – to educate them while having fun,” Bradley said. “You don’t have to be an expert in space or anything like that. You just have to be curious and be willing to download some apps and then just go and try it out.”
Participants can register on vailcrypto.world, where they will receive instructions to set up on the two respective apps. The scavenger hunt begins at 8:30 a.m. at Vail Village’s 10th Mountain Division Soldier Monument and lasts until the lift closes at 3:30 p.m. At the end of the day, participants are invited to meet up at the 10th Mountain Whiskey Tasting Room in Vail Village. For après skis and a ruffle. The cost of registration for scavenger hunts is $25 per person.
Bradley hopes the event will introduce more people to the club, and plans to expand the presence of crypto in Vail Valley.
Bradley said, “The first phase was trying to establish the club, bring in people, and then the second phase is going to involve more businesses, as well as more notoriety for the club and more in the local community.” There will be integration.” “Going forward, I want to start reaching more speakers and businesses that are involved in the space. Anyone who is reading this, who wants to come out to speak and be involved in what we are doing, I would love to have them.”
