What is PeopleInThePlaceTheyLove？
PeopleInThePlaceTheyLove is an NFT collection created by popular artist Yusuke Hanai. It was launched through FWENCLUB, a platform for selling digital and physical collectibles.
All 1,000 pieces sold out immediately, and the tremendous response on FWENCLUB Discord attracted more than 250,000 users in one week, making it the largest Discord art community in Asia. The floor price is up to 15 times higher than the mint price.
The NFT is inspired by a now-defunct bar where Yusuke Hanai used to work, and the good times he had there. The collection is high-quality art, with each avatar being specially designed and has its unique hand-painted characteristics.
The holders will be invited to join the FWENCLUB members-only community and will also receive advance purchase rights to works by Yusuke Hanai and other works in the FWENCLUB Metaverse.
He created special avatars for the renowned American artist KAWS, Taiwanese singer Jay Chou, Singaporean singer JJ Lin, founder of FWENCLUB SK Lam and entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa. In addition to them, many other celebrities, mostly from Asia, have become PeopleInThePlaceTheyLoven holders.
FWENCLUB, which released this NFT collection, is Asia’s largest platform for selling real and digital collectibles and is operated by AllRightsReserved, a Hong Kong-based creative studio.
Not only is it a marketplace for collectibles, but it provides proof of ownership services by tying physical items to a blockchain.
In partnership with Netflix, they launched the world’s first limited edition collection of Young-hee dolls from Netflix’s mega hit, The Squid Game.
A figurine of Jim Hopper from STRANGER THINGS, created by Yusuke Hanai, is also available. You will find many works by familiar characters and famous artists on the official FWENCLUB website.

Why hold a PeopleInThePlaceTheyLove NFT?
The project will be divided into three phases, dropping 3,000 NFTs in total. The second and third phases will be released during 2022, and the first NFT holders will earn their whitelist.
