Tatuaje Cigars recently announced their upcoming NFT offering of their acclaimed Tatuaje Anarchy cigar. This cigar was released initially as a store exclusive in 2010 for Smoke Inn Cigars and was quickly loved by many in the cigar community.
As a company that validates tokenized assets, both digital and real-world, UREEQA is thrilled to partner with another cigar company to bring an exciting NFT opportunity to the cigar community.
The Tatuaje Anarchy NFT collection is an exciting new NFT offering for any cigar shop or enthusiast. The collection consists of seven numbered and unique original art NFTs as well as a specially crafted handmade 75-count Tatuaje Anarchy NFT Edition humidor, featuring 60 authentic Tatuaje Anarchy cigars and 15 ultra-rare Anarchy Pale Horse Editions exclusively made for NFT holders. The Pale Horse Edition mirrors the original blend but utilizes a special claro wrapper instead of the original Habano Maduro. With only 105 cigars ever produced in this vitola, these Pale Horse editions are indeed a coveted treasure.
UREEQA, a company that proves provenance on the blockchain, will provide a digital marketplace for the auctions and utilize their revolutionary Package of Proof technology to provide security and authenticity to the NFT purchasers. Cigar aficionados can purchase the exclusive and very limited Tatuaje Anarchy supply with confidence knowing which retailers hold a Tatuaje Anarchy NFT validated by UREEQA.
“At UREEQA, we are very passionate about the importance of validating any asset on the blockchain, and firmly believe in the importance of proving authorship, ownership, and originality so that any buyer can purchase an item with confidence”. Shannon Powell, a founder and CMO at UREEQA continued, “It’s always exciting when you get to be a part of two exciting industries working together. We love validating real-world assets like the Tatuaje Anarchy NFT cigar offering, and working with a company like Smoke Inn that is just as excited as we are about the opportunities Web3 brings to their cigar world, when done safely for their consumers".
Six of these NFTs, numbered 1-6, will be sold via separate 48-hour-long live auctions to be held consecutively starting on August 21st, 2023. The seventh NFT will be issued to Smoke Inn Owner and Anarchy brand partner, Abe Dababneh.
“I cannot tell you how excited I am about this offering. Thirteen years after the original release, and we still receive regular emails from consumers asking if we have any left hidden away. This is an incredible way to let this cigar live on and be available to fans and collectors once again. I am confident Tatuaje fans all over will be hunting down these cigars from any lucky retailer who was able to obtain one of these NFTs,” stated Abe Dababneh
Additionally, the winning bidders will receive a 24x36 framed print version, a 01/01 Ligne 2 Lighter by S.T. Dupont of Paris, a newly developed Perfect Xi1 Cutter by Xikar, and a crystal ashtray by Quality Importers, all with matching art to the seven unique NFTs. Furthermore, each Tatuaje Anarchy NFT owner will have the exclusive privilege to purchase a quarterly allotment of 15 boxes of 15 Tatuaje Anarchy NFT Edition cigars at the price of $14 per cigar.
Pete Johnson expressed his excitement about the collaboration, stating, “The original Tatuaje Anarchy cigar remains to be one of the largest single-store releases in our industry and is still being sought after by consumers worldwide. I felt this cigar specifically was worthy of a special NFT offering that would allow the cigar to exist, while in very limited quantities, on a regular basis. Collaborating with S.T. Dupont and Quality Importers was the perfect way to create a very special and unique collection to complete the offering.”
Xikar has long been the leader amongst cigar aficionados for delivering quality and uniquely crafted cigar cutters. Renowned for its bold, masculine look and superior engineering, the Xi1 by Xikar features stainless steel blades with an aluminum body for durability. The newest evolution of this renowned cutter, the Perceft Xi1 Cutter, will be premiering in 2023. The Tatuaje Anarchy NFT Edition Perfect Xikar Xi1 Cutters are the first seven cutters made in this new model. They all adorn the eye-catching NFT art and are all unique productions numbered 01/01.
“Quality Importers is thrilled to be involved in this cutting edge Tatuaje Anarchy NFT release. Through our SWAG Bunker we were able to bring the artwork to life in a stunning crystal ashtray and on the brand new Perfect Xi1 Cutter, exclusive to Smoke Inn. More on that coming soon!” states Joe Gro, Director of Marketing and Communications for Quality Importers.
