The first announcement of the ‘Mercedes-AMG Petronas x NFTs’ concept are free-to-claim ‘Ticket Stubs’ NFTs. Actually, the “Ticket Stubs” are a digital and artistic explanations of the Mercedes F1 race tickets.
Therefore, there will be 2,500 NFT Ticket Stubs NFTs allocated to each race of the season. In addition, the Ticket Stubs NFTs randomly will be given to fans who sign up for the initiative.
Thus, the second NFT series will include 1,000 limited edition Ticket Stubs for free distribution. Mercedes will again distribute these for free at five races through the season’s calendar.
