In 1979 Jim Ward was working on his campaign setting for Dungeons & Dragons with Gary Gygax. This is the Gary Gygax correspondence with Jim Ward NFT from that time period. Jim Ward is in need of help with his medical bills and at Gary Con, we want to help him get through this rough patch with an auction of the digital NFT of these letters.
We will have THREE (3) of these letters available in NFT (non fungible tokens) format.
When you win this auction, you will receive:
- The NFT of this correspondence between Jim Ward and the late Gary Gygax
- A Framed copy of the letter sent to you!
- A Free Silver Badge for Gary Con through 2030!
- A video of Luke Gygax reading the letter and talking about the background behind it!
What are NFTs? We’re glad you asked!
NFTs (or “non-fungible tokens”) are a special kind of “crypto-asset”, similar to “Bitcoin” or other cryptocurrencies, but instead of being the currency themselves, they are instead each UNIQUE — as opposed to “fungible” assets like Bitcoin and dollar bills, which are all worth exactly the same amount. Because every NFT is unique, they can be used to authenticate ownership of digital assets like artworks, recordings, and virtual real estate or pets.
In other words when you own the NFT of this letter between Gary and Jim, it is 100% unique and uncopyable. You, and you alone, will own this digital artifact.
NFTs have value: you can retain this letter for your personal collection or sell it at a later time just as you could any other collectible or piece of art.
