How to buy your Bloomingvails Christmas NFT

A simple walk through of how to buy your first Bloomingvails Christmas NFT on Solsea.io.

The Bloomingvails Christmas NFTs are minted, or created, on the Solana blockchain. As such, you need to download a virtual wallet built for Solana. We like Phantom, so we will use it in the example.

You can download the phantom app here for your browser:

https://phantom.app/

You will be given a 12 word password. This is for your eyes only and must be kept in a safe place. It is recommended to write down your 12 word password and do not store it on your phone or computer.

Now that you have your virtual wallet built for Solana, Phantom in our case, we need to fill it with some money, Solana in this case. There are many different companies that offer access to crypto and specifically Solana.

Since Vail is an international destination and Bloomingvails services international clientele we will recommend an international crypto exchange for today.

https://www.huobi.com/

Huobi is one of many options you have for crypto exchanges. At Huobi you can buy crypto currency with fiat currency. You could, for example, buy Bitcoin and then exchange your Bitcoin for Solana. You will need to make an account with Huobi and this will include creating another virtual wallet, which then itself includes another 12 word password that must be stored safely and privately.

Once you have your account and wallet, you can either buy Solana directly with fiat currency or buy Bitcoin and later exchange the Bitcoin for Solana (the two easiest cryptos to exchange are Bitcoin and Ethereum ).

Finally, with Solana in our Phantom wallet, we make our way over to Solsea.io and specifically the Bloomingvails Christmas NFT Collection:

https://solsea.io/collection/61a96d282d841e02678747d8

You will be asked to connect your Phantom wallet with the Solsea website, you need to accept or approve. Once connected to Solsea you simply click buy NFT on the Bloomingvails Christmas NFT of your choice and the Phantom wallet will ask for your approval again. If you approve you will have yourself one of the first ever Bloomingvails NFTs!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

An NFT is essentially a digital proof of ownership and authenticity. It is a new blockchain technology, and like msot new things it can be difficult to understand their value.

The new frontier that NFTs are crossing is something called digital scarcity. Digital scarcity allows all the digital artists who before could never sell their work, a new way to earn a living as creators. Imagine the Mona Lisa. You can get a cheap print nearly anywhere of this masterpiece, however the prints are cheap because we all know that the original is locked away in a muesum. The original is worth millions because we can certify that it is the original. Now we can prove which digital creation is the original, finally bringing scarcity to the digial art world.

Each NFT has a unique hash number that proves its authenticity and scarcity. Once you are the owner of your NFT you can trade, sell, or simply cherish you digital artwork.

Looking for a one of a kind gift? How about a gift that keeps on giving? How about sending a gift to someone far away from you? Last minute?

A Bloomingvails Christmas NFT is an ideal gift to give this Christmas!

Debbie’s 3 go-to Restaurants in the Vail Valley

We all know theres no shortage of amazing restaurants all over the Valley. Still sometimes you’re in the mood for adventure and some times you just want the sure bet. These three picks from Debbie are more like the sure bet type. Delicious food and great service that you can count on.

Number 3

Route 6 Cafe in Eagle Vail. A longtime locals favorite and for good reason. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Music, Bar, and excellent service. Everyone knows Ollie is the man.

Number 2

La Tour in Vail Village. If you can get a table at La Tour you should take the opportunity. Nationally recognized cuisine. Debbie loves the Pan Roasted Organic Scottish Salmon.

Number 1

Main Street Grill. Amazing food and fun atmosphere is why this restaurant is a long time local favorite. That and their St. Luis Pork Ribs. The mussels are also worth a mention.

If you’re in Edwards…

Make sure you get a beer and some nachos at the Gore Range Brewery!

Debbie’s Top 3 Summer Hikes in the Vail Valley 2021

By Thomas Jeremiah King

East Lake Creek Trail

We know its almost ski season, but here at Bloomingvails we had such a great summer season hiking that we wanted to share something with our customers that love summer in Vail just as much as winter.

Starting with number three, for Debbie’s Favorite Hikes of 2021, we find ourselves in Minturn. The Meadow Mountain hike in Minturn takes the bronze this year.

In the second spot for Debbie’s Favorite Hikes of 2021 we make our way west towards Edwards. The water tower hike in Homestead is the winner of the silver this year.

And for our number one favorite hike of the 2021 summer season at Bloomingvails Debbie has decided to stay in Edwards. Her most loved hike is the East Lake Creek Trail.

Debbie likes hikes that have plenty of shade, enough incline but not too much, and obviously lots of amazing scenery.

Next time we will share favorite ski runs!

Here at Bloomingvails LLC we have a full supply of Christmas lights and Christmas trees ready for delivery and installation at your home.

Order early this year to ensure your Christmas decorations as there are supply chain challenges all across the country.

We are a customer service focused business bringing the joy of the holidays directly to your home. Take the worry out of your holidays and call Bloomingvails LLC for a complete service.
