The concept of the Paradise NFT Club was born out of frustration with the existing timeshare model. BPN Capital Group CEO Edward Rodriguez believes the industry has been waiting for an option where vacationers know exactly what they are purchasing day one, without hidden fees or monthly fees associated with the memberships.

Each Paradise NFT club membership unlocks unique perks and comes with a physical card alongside the NFT. Members also are privy to learn about future properties, events, and projects. After members use all of their weeks, they will have the option to renew their membership for a fee or obtain a 15% discount on all future stays at the Paradise NFT Club.

"Paradise NFT Club was created by a group of people that love traveling with style, having fun, and spending time with their families," says BPN Capital Group CEO Edward Rodriguez. "Among this group you have NFL Hall of Famer Cris Carter, NBA All-Star Theo Ratliff, Marketing Guru Jossua Parini and TikTok sensation Karen BaraGuz, to name a few. We are thrilled to streamline time-share membership and unlock new digital possibilities for our members with NFTs."

"Membership NFTs are just one of the many ways we're innovating to integrate Web 3.0 strategies into Web 2.0 products," says Upstream Co-Founder Mark Elenowitz. "Proof of ownership on an open ledger along with a blockchain trading ecosystem enables members to unlock new opportunities and trade their memberships safely and securely.
