The Yuletide is upon us! The crypto market has been intense this year. However, let’s not overlook the things that are of great importance to us in life. Nonetheless, we encourage you all to take this holiday season to relax and get into the Christmas spirit.
This year, CoinGecko would like to flow with the Christmas spirit by giving away something special. We are bringing to you our limited edition CoinGecko Christmas themed ERC-721 Non-Fungible Tokens!
As part of our experimenting with Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT), we are working to see what we can #BUIDL in this aspect and our research produced these cute limited-edition Non-Fungible Geckos in Christmas outfit!
Why are we releasing NFT?
One of the numerous blockchain developments we have paid close marking to in 2018 is the growth of Non-Fungible Tokens. In partnership with Non-Fungible.com, we created a special segment on NFT in our 2018 Q3 Crypto Report.
Wondering what ‘NFT’ is and the meaning of the term ‘fungibility’?
Let us explain in simple words.
- Fungibility in tokens refers to the property in which one token is identically replaceable with the other.
- Non-Fungible Tokens, on the other hand, represents a token class that is individually unique in nature and can be distinguished from each other.

CoinGecko Christmas NFT
Having found NFT very interesting, we opted to mint some NFTs and share with our friends who are aware of Non-Fungible Tokens too. Therefore, we designed our Gecko in 5 different Christmas poses this year. We are happy to present to you, our esteemed customers the Non-Fungible Geckos!
Ho! Ho! Ho! Were you naughty or nice this year? I know you wished for Ethereum price to hit $1,000 again and wished that I can give that to you. Unfortunately, I can’t do that and have prepared two small gifts for you instead. Merry Christmas!
Little Timmy Gecko
Winter is here and I love my Christmas tree jumper! My beanie and mittens were hand-woven by mommy. She told me: ‘we need to be grateful in life and be happy always’. I don’t have much to share but a candy cane I can give. Do you want it?
I love making snowmen during the winter season. The biggest snowman I made was 2 meters tall! I made a mini one which I am proud to put my dad’s fedora on it. Hope you like the snowman!
One of our family traditions is to dress up and decorate our family Christmas tree together. Every year we draw lots to place a star on the Christmas tree. This year in 2018, I was the chosen one and I get to take a photo with the Christmas tree in my tuxedo and red bowtie.
Who doesn’t like to ice skate! Every year I wait for the pond to freeze over so I can ice-skate with my friends. It makes my heart run wild and I feel so free. I like how the world is my oyster and it presents so many opportunities for me!
