- First production vehicle (Unit #0001) to be auctioned along with a one-of-a-kind Non-Fungible Token (NFT) art collage commemorating creation of “SPIRITUS” from concept to final assembly
- NFT will bring to life a collage of hundreds of pictures of the development of the Spiritus electric vehicle and be available through OpenSea for 30 days
TORONTO, Oct. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Daymak Inc., a pioneer in personal Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs), today announced the creation of several Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) that commemorate the production timeline of the world’s first-ever crypto mining electric vehicle (EV), the Daymak Spiritus. These one-of-a-kind NFTs, one of which also entitles the winning bidder to ownership of the Company’s first Spiritus production unit (Unit #0001), will be featured on the OpenSea NFT marketplace for 30 days where bids can be placed in Ethereum. This will mark the first ever instance where a car is sold on the blockchain.
As the name suggests, “Beyond the Black Diamond” is a piece of digital art documenting the struggles and the victories on the long uphill road to a green, electrified future. This NFT is one pillar of the innovative strategy Daymak is utilizing to make its mark and achieve something few have.
“It has not been a smooth journey getting here,” said Aldo Baiocchi, President of Daymak. “The completion of the Spiritus prototype is a massive milestone for us, and this NFT marks that achievement. By purchasing this NFT, someone will become part of our team, helping us use green tech to change the world, and owning a very cool piece of EV history in the process.”
With hundreds of pictures and animations spanning three years of challenges, Daymak has embodied the entire build progression of the first Spiritus prototype in this one-of-a-kind work of art. A photo-mosaic in the shape of the Spiritus EV, “Beyond the Black Diamond” documents the struggles the Company overcame to reach the final target and make its mark on the planet. The piece chronicles the creativity, passion, commitment, and out-of-the- box mentality it took to bring the first Spiritus to life.
This NFT commemorating the historic build of the world’s first crypto mining EV will also come with a document of authenticity in addition to the right to receive the first Spiritus production vehicle delivered anywhere in the world. Additionally, ownership includes the right to a lifetime of vehicle storage at Daymak facilities, if required. This ownership is a separate NFT, which will be transferred to the wallet of the winning bidder on “Beyond the Black Diamond.”
“Imagine paying for the right to receive the first-ever Ferrari, Lamborghini or Shelby Cobra,” continued Baiocchi. This gives someone the unique opportunity to own the first-ever Spiritus build in both physical and digital form: a unique NFT plus the vehicle itself, with the likelihood of both appreciating significantly over time.
“The EV and green-tech sector house some of the brightest minds on the planet, all competing with the collective goal of making this world a greener place,” said Baiocchi. “We are at the dawn of a technical and financial revolution, led by blockchain technology, and it is very exciting to see how NFTs have allowed creators to take ownership of their work and raise funds in a way that was never before possible.”
In addition to the “Beyond the Black Diamond” bundle, the following collections will also be available for purchase on OpenSea:
- The Spiritus Project (10 available) – an officially licensed EV NFT collection, a mosaic featuring thousands of 64×64 photos of the world’s first crypto car, documenting over 15 years of work
- Gem Mint Spiritus (4 available) – A series of iconic, officially licensed, Spiritus art pieces capturing the magic of the first EV in the world to mine crypto
The Daymak Spiritus Ultimate edition is the fastest three-wheel production car on the planet with an astonishing acceleration from 0 to 60 in 1.8 seconds. Proceeds from the sale of the NFT will go directly towards expediting manufacturing of the vehicle, with a portion of proceeds being donated to Daily Bread Food Bank in Toronto.
