THE CASTLE PARTY 2022

Stirling Castle, Scotland, July 30th 2022, 7pm - midnight

Since it arose from the mists of the early 12th Century, Stirling Castle has stood at the centre of momentous historical events. William Wallace and Robert the Bruce seized the Castle back from invading English armies in the 14th Century Wars of Scottish Independence. In the 16th Century, the infant Mary Queen of Scots was crowned in the Castle’s Chapel Royal, beginning her doomed reign. During the Jacobite Rising of the 18th Century, Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Highland army laid siege to the Castle. And in the year 2022, history will be made once more, as trevorjonesart hosts a grand Castle Party for crypto enthusiasts and Bitcoin Angels.

145d 0h 53m 32s

Please note: The party is now fully booked and no more tickets will be made available. Additionally, the deadline for deposit refunds has now passed, so we are unable to refund any cancelled tickets. If you have booked a place and are unable to attend, you can still transfer your place at your own arrangement. Please let us know if you do this by contacting us here.

To attend the #CastleParty2022 each guest must have at least one Bitcoin Angel attributed to them. For example, if two people come as a couple, they must have two Bitcoin Angels between them (fine to be held in one wallet). The Castle's Events Coordinator has told us that children of 10 and older will be allowed to attend if accompanied by an adult.

Due to the 400 max guest capacity I need to ensure that the people who say they’ll be attending are fully committed to making the trip to Scotland. Therefore, to ensure the most exclusive crypto event of 2022 rolls out properly a deposit of $777 USD or equivalent in Pound Sterling (ETH or bank transfer) will be required to secure your place(s).

Your $777 deposit can also be exchanged at the party for a special edition NFT. If you have 2+ angels and you're bringing a guest (including children), deposits for each is required and you can receive NFTs in exchange for each deposit. 

For all guests who attend the party, their deposit will be fully refunded if requested or your NFTs minted within 7 days after the event. If you pay the deposit in ETH you will be refunded the same amount in ETH. You can also pay the deposit by bank transfer and you will be refunded equally in dirty fiat. 

This unique NFT will be made available only at the castle party, therefore a maximum of 400 created and quite likely a lot fewer. Only those who attend will be able to claim one.*

* Members of the Bitcoin Angel community who hold 10+ angels will have the opportunity to buy a special edition NFT for $777 even if they are unable to attend. This added benefit for these devout supporters will continue to #CastleParty2023 and beyond.

If you pay the deposit to secure your place and you’re unable to attend the party, you will be refunded 100% if you notify me by May 15th.

Once all 400 spaces have been filled we will set up a waiting list and if and when spaces open we will contact those on the list in order of signing up. 

Each attendee must have at least one Bitcoin Angel attributed to them. For example, if two people come as a couple, they must have two Bitcoin Angels between them (fine to be held in one wallet). Currently attendees will receive:

1-9 Angels attributed or 1 Bronze Ascended Angel NFT

  • Bronze Castle Party 2022 NFT (on exchange for $777 deposit)*

* Attendees can choose to reclaim their $777 deposit or exchange for a Bronze, Silver or Gold Castle Party NFT (depending on how many angels are attributed to them).

Note for attendees who wish to claim Silver or Gold NFTs

For the purposes of the Silver and Gold Castle Party NFTs, one individual must have respectively 10-19 or 20+ Angels attributed to them. For example, if two people come as a couple and they want a Silver NFT, they would need to have 11 Bitcoin Angels between them – that is 10 attributed to one partner and one attributed to the other (they could additionally claim one bronze NFT for the partner who has the one in this example).

Additionally:

  • People with 10-19 Angels attributed are, in addition to their Silver NFT, also able to purchase one additional Bronze NFT for $777
  • People with 20+ Angels attributed are, in addition to their Gold NFT, also able to purchase one Bronze and one Silver NFT for $777 each

Note for 10-19 and 20+ Angel holders (or Silver/Gold Ascended Angel holders) who are unable to attend

As exceptional supporters of the Bitcoin Angel:

  • 10-19 Angel holders who are unable to attend the Castle Party will be able to purchase one Bronze and one Silver NFT for $777 each
  • 20+ Angel holders who are unable to attend the Castle Party will be able to purchase one Bronze, one Silver and one Gold NFT for $777 each

However, only those who attend the party will receive the physical limited-edition prints, T-shirt, goodie bag, enter the draw for the physical oil paintings, etc.

If you are a holder of ten or more angels, are not attending the party, and would like to claim your NFT(s), please contact david@trevorjonesart.com or Trevor’s Discord channel so we can verify your eligibility.

Note for those with Ascended Angels

For the purposes of the above, Ascended Angels count as follows:

  • Bronze Ascended Angel = 5 Bitcoin Angels
  • Silver Ascended Angel = 10 Bitcoin Angels
  • Gold Ascended Angel = 20 Bitcoin Angels

These can be attributed to guests of the holders as if they were regular Bitcoin Angels.

Giveaways on the night of the event will also include two of my original paintings, with one being created especially for the Castle Party, and the unique NFT. Framing and worldwide delivery of the artwork is included.

I will also give away seven Bitcoin Angel NFTs on the night. At least four will go to castle party attendees, and the other three will be given away in a draw to anyone who owns an Angel, even if they’re not at the event.

The Castle Party will be packed with so many amazing entertainers, we have given them their own page. Click here to see the growing list of entertainment!
