Fortune’s August September 2021 issue titled “Crypto vs. Wall Street” goes on sale as a limited edition from NFT and goes live on August 6. The auction will take place on OpenSea, the largest peer to peer marketplace for NFT and other crypto collectibles. The auctions will begin at 12 p.m. ET and end at 9 p.m. on August 9.

To complete the title, pplpleasr (aka Emily Yang) illustrated DeFi’s Rabbit Hole World on the cover featuring mascots from famous projects. Uniswap’s unicorn mascot, Meamask’s fox, and Aave’s ghost are pictured on the cover page alongside crypto influencers like CryptoCobain and Loomdart. The whimsical coin features crypto portal towers, multi-story buildings, eclipsed outlines of banks, and the well-known bull stock symbol.

The Fortune magazine drop will feature 256 limited editions of the digital artist’s animated art in NFT form. These NFTs are available for purchase for 1 Ether (ETH) each during the auction. On top of that, three additional rare NFTs will also be auctioned. These additional and rarer NFTs are the result of Fortune working together with an NFT production company named Manifold on custom smart contracts. These rarer versions have more detailed graphics and they are programmed to meet a fixed list of addresses of Ethereum buyers.

The graphics for these NFTs change when an offer arrives from one of the listed buyer’s addresses. The NFT will change to a unique edition artwork created exactly for the buyer. According to a media report, Fortune will use fifty percent of the proceedings for charitable purposes.

Since its launch in 1930, Fortune has published articles on business, financial and technology updates to an international audience. It is one of the first mainstream media houses to pay attention to covering digital currency trends at the very start of the cryptocurrency wave with the launch of a dedicated project called The Ledger franchise.
