Mila Sketch, "Flourish"

Last week, Mint Gold Dust was a proud sponsor of NFT.NYC for the second year in a row. 

Following on from our record breaking sale at NFT.NYC 2021, Mint Gold Dust hosted an NFT auction at the official VIP + Speaker Dinner on June 20, 2022.

The team auctioned 20 lots and sold several 1/1 NFTs including Flourish by Mila Sketch, A Non-Fungible Dream by FeeBee, and Black Box Collective’s Alpha Jet; an NFT that grants the holder to privileged  access to a range of private jets.

We also sold a section of RAREPEPEs including HODLWOOD, GOXPEPE, and KEKTOPUS.

Mint Gold Dust partner Tokenframe, the most technically advanced and feature-rich display frame for crypto art, was also a part of the sale. Tokenframe’s patented technology connects your wallet with the frame to allow you to display your favorite NFT collection seamlessly. In addition to being a part of the auction, Tokenframe displayed the art from the sale during the event. 

The VIP event saw over 3,000 guests at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Times Square and served as the kick off to a week full of activities.

Later in the week, Mint Gold Dust Founder and CEO Kelly LeValley Hunt spoke at NFT.NYC about NFTs then and now. Being hailed a Blockchain Pioneer by Forbes magazine in 2018, Kelly LeValley Hunt has had a front row seat to the rise of Smart Contract Art, Crypto Art, and RARES, more colloquially now known as NFTs.


Mint Gold Dust was also a proud sponsor of satellite event Cr3ative X. The 3 day long event took place at the Times Square Edition Hotel and was hosted by Searchlight Art. 

Throughout the week, guests were invited to attend talks, panels, and an AR Art Walk, in conjunction with Mint Gold Dust partner Illust Space
