LAS VEGAS, NV – NFTs are going mainstream and Malaysia’s Genting Group’s Resorts World, has pioneered uncharted territory in Las Vegas. On May 17th, 2022, The Farrah Fawcett Foundation and MORE Management will release for sale, the highly-anticipated NFT collection (www.farrahnft.com), based on the world-famous red bathing suit poster. It is now currently on display at Resorts World Las Vegas prior to going on sale in the “Americana” section of the most expensive casino on the Strip, with a price tag of $4.3 billion.
The best-selling poster of all time, with a record-breaking 12 million copies sold, has been recast as an NFT, including limited edition variations of the poster by award-winning NFT artist, Elise Swopes. The different variations will be on auction beginning on May 17 at www.farrahnft.com.
While NFTs have taken off in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles, MORE Entertainment CEO Peter Klamka and developer of NFTs, says it’s new in Vegas. “I have been doing crypto-related [projects] in Las Vegas going back seven years, with almost no success. Las Vegas, from the outside would appear to be a crypto friendly destination. It is not: [we got] a lot of pushback. But the opportunity to debut the Farrah NFT collection at Resorts World demonstrates how Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world, is moving towards a cryptocurrency powered future.”
