HAVE (Humble Alpha Veteran Empowerment) is launching an NFT (non-fungible tokens) project, on 10 March 2022, designed specifically to address the ongoing needs of Veterans. HAVE recently was honored to receive Florent Groberg’s support, one of 67 living Medal of Honor recipients, to the project. The project aims to raise funds through four drops (launches) of Veteran-inspired NFTs, to further the development of the HAVE ecosystem of support and financial services designed to empower Veterans. Funds will also be donated to 25 Veteran-focused non-profit organizations (NPO) each drop. NFTs developed for Veterans by Veterans, HAVE NFT connects the Veteran community to support, opportunities, and funding through the NFT industry.

“This is a journey and HAVE NFT is leading the way into this whole new world. I’m excited to be a part of it because of the people involved on this journey”, explained Groberg. “One thing I learned a long time ago, whether it was on a soccer field, on the track, or in the mountains of Afghanistan, it’s a lot easier to get things done with a team of like minded people who are committed to the mission. We have an objective, and we’re gonna make a difference in the Veteran community.”

HAVE founders, Steven Kuhn and Lane Belone, have been working diligently for the past 4 years in building organizations like the Vetrepreneur Tribe and Warrior Council with other Veterans to address the healing and business needs of Veterans. HAVE NFT was born from an idea to tokenize Challenge Coins as NFTs as a way to raise awareness and funds, and to accelerate the impact that HAVE is making.

What are HAVE NFTs?

HAVE NFTs are being launched on the Ekta blockchain, combining the concept of traditional Challenge Coins with the emerging technology of NFTs. Challenge Coins are collectible coins or medallions that carry a unit’s emblem. With use dating back to Roman soldiers, Challenge Coins are regularly used to prove membership to a unit, to strengthen camaraderie, and recognize valor and success.

The HAVE team connected Challenge Coins to the burgeoning world of NFTs and the metaverse to create HAVE NFTs. NFTs are unique digital tokens with verifiable ownership, created on blockchain networks and can represent a unique digital asset or something unique in the physical world. HAVE NFTs are unique digital Challenge Coins that establish membership into the HAVE ecosystem, giving the owner access to all the services and benefits that both HAVE and the Ekta blockchain provide.

How HAVE NFT funds will be used

  • Launch the full HAVE ecosystem, connecting Veterans to the decentralized finance economy for access to capital, opportunities, and empowerment programs like the Vetpreneur program
  • Continual development of HAVE Events, online and offline, that promote networking, education, and entrepreneurial development 
  • HAVE NFT will donate 5% of the funds raised to Veteran nonprofits  – 25 nonprofit organizations per NFT Drop until 100 nonprofits are supported over 4 separate mints
  • Fund Veteran gatherings, retreats, and healing work, virtual and in-person; in collaboration with Veteran nonprofit partners 

The benefits of owning a HAVE NFT

HAVE NFT owners enjoy benefits in both the real world and the blockchain world. In the physical world, holders gain access to all the events and activities within the HAVE platform as detailed above. In the digital and blockchain world, HAVE NFT holders can earn passive income by staking their NFTs for cryptocurrency returns. Holders also gain access to the growing investment tools and financial opportunities with the Ekta blockchain ecosystem. This can take the form of investment pools, fractional real estate investment, and access to early-stage startup investment through the blockchain.

“HAVE NFT is the digital arm of the Humble Alpha Veteran Empowerment movement. We connect the real world with the digital world while maintaining the authentic connections and work we’ve been doing in person for years. Having the support of someone like Florent is huge, and validation that HAVE is moving in the right direction. As we develop and give back to the community, we’ll continue to develop HAVE based on what is good and needed for the community.” says Steven Kuhn, HAVE co-founder.

The whitelist (waiting list) is open now for the first NFT to launch, the HAVE Veteran Bulldog. Go to havenft.io to learn more and to get on the whitelist.

HAVE NFT Co-Founder Steven Kuhn stated, “We believe that Platinum Crypto Academy, with their 7 years’ experience, were a first mover for good reason. Simply put: They posess the required experience and extensive knowledge needed to support and further our unique ecosystem. In this new market it is next to impossible to find any company with such a wide experience for such a long time. Together we are confident in growing the already largest profit for purpose project in the Metaverse.”

Karnav Shah, Editor in Chief at Cryptonaire Weekly thinks highly of the HAVE NFT project, he explained, “HAVE NFT is the first and only one of its kind Veteran-Focused NFT. We make sure to help them reach the larger crypto community by sharing more about these shapeshifting solutions with our readers and across our community channels.”
