PIXXTASY is an NFT project that focuses on supporting anti-drug charities. The project is the first of its kind with a two-fold approach; firstly, each piece of artwork is hand-drawn by a professional artist and designed to look like a real-world drug. These may, for example, appear as pop culture icons such as Darth Vader or Hello Kitty, seemingly harmless to look at but with devastating consequences. Most real-world drugs use similar designs. The other aspect of the project is profits raised from the sales of the NFTs will be donated to support the work of 11 worldwide anti-drug charities and rehabilitation centres. The aim is to help people recover from drug addiction as well as raise awareness about drug misuse.
PIXXTASY has partnered with Hungarian and German charity projects (SUCHTKRANKENHILFE OSTFRIESLAND, MRE KIMM and tinirehab.hu) to support and help the charities continue their work helping people.
The NFTs will have a rarity level, making them more collectible and will drop in 10 + 1 rounds with 33 / 34 NFTs per round. The first mint will be on the 7th of September 2022. Those interested in purchasing PIXXTASY NFTs can sign up to the whitelist which starts on the 31st of August 2022; anyone who signs up will have a chance of being selected and allowed to purchase one of PIXXTASY’s NFTs.
PIXXTASY has two main taglines: “DON’T USE. JUST OWN IT.” And “BE A HEALER”, advocating against drug use as well as helping others to quit.
Zoltán Egri’s Story
PIXXTASY was created by a man who managed to overcome a two-year battle with drug addiction, Zoltán Egri saw the potential for good in NFTs and their widespread use in the modern world, especially with the rapid growth of cryptocurrencies in everyday life. Reflecting on his experiences he explained his observations as to how since the pandemic the world is heading to a more digital future with NFTs becoming the norm:
“Art has always provided me with a different perspective; I’ve created digital content and aim to continue making more. I’ve been through a lot, I was an employee, a manager, a 5-minute star, a lover, a cheater, a rich person, a drug addict and then I got clean. PIXXTASY was formed due to the combination of events from my life.” – Zoltán Egri on the project (translated and adjusted for English).
