A cutting-edge CEO and former Desert Storm veteran is reinventing NFTs with a new set of tokens that are a solid investment in the well-being of American service members past and present.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Can the high-energy excitement of the crypto token investment space be a force for good? This is the idea behind the development of the new Devil Dogs NFT series, a crypto token project designed to support US service members.
The project, the first of its kind, aims to leverage Web3 technology to achieve both real and virtual benefits, with the ability to purchase unique and tradable “everyday hero” tokens. Proceeds will be directed to essential services for veterans.
In its initial release, Devil Dogs (DVL.DGS) offers 1775 unique and inspirational bulldog tokens, commemorating service in the US Marine Corps, with an expected manufacturing date of this fall.
The DVL.DGS NFT initiative is led by Dave Grannan, Silicon Valley tech CEO and Gulf War veteran. “Our Devil Dogs NFT project sits at the intersection of two issues that are close to my heart,” says Grannan. “As a Gulf War veteran, I know first-hand how far our veteran healthcare system falls short. And, as a tech executive, I’m very optimistic about the future of crypto, blockchain and most things Web3.”
As the project grows, DVL.DGS plans to donate over 90% of its revenue to charities vital to veterans. Specifically, the project aims to amplify the impact of organizations that focus on key Veteran issues, including access to health care, suicide prevention and homelessness. Devil Dogs also plans to support education and financial literacy programs that help veterans better reintegrate into civilian life.
The DVL.DGS campaign offers two ways to give: investors can purchase an NFT to support wellness initiatives and/or donate an NFT directly to an active member of the service. Grannan and his team are aiming for an official first strike this fall. But NFT donations can be purchased now on the project website, devildogs.io.
Grannan believes the project will speak to many people who understand the challenges facing veterans, as well as curious and seasoned crypto investors ready for more targeted NFT holdings. “If you are crypto-curious, this project can be your safe gateway into the world of crypto,” says Grannan. “And if you’re a crypto native, I ask, ‘Don’t you want a warrior in your collection that’s really ready for the metaverse? “”
DVL.DGS was founded by Dave Grannan as a cause-driven NFT project dedicated to the well-being of all United States military personnel, veterans and their families. He joined the Marine Corps in 1988 and was commissioned a second lieutenant in 1989. Shortly thereafter he was sent with his platoon to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait as part of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After leaving the Corps, Grannan attended UC-Berkeley Haas School business, earning an MBA. He then led several tech start-ups on the East Coast and in Silicon Valley. At Devil Dogs, Dave is driven by his determination to encourage greater support for those who serve.
