The Story

A great NFT collection tells a great story. And there’s no better story than a Bill Murray story.

The Bill Murray 1000 is a unique biographical NFT project telling the story of iconic actor, comedian, and writer, Bill Murray – and a life very well-lived. Bill worked closely with theCHIVE and Project Venkman to build this NFT collection on a foundation of stories, art, community, and travel.

The Bill Murray 1000 collection offers Original Bill story NFTs containing anecdotes, observations, advice, memories, Murray-isms, and more. It also offers destination-based NFTs that represent physical locations that are near and dear to Bill Murray; from his dentist’s office in Omaha, to his early days in New York City. The NFTs cover a broad spectrum of topics ranging from how Hunter S. Thompson saved Bill’s life to the day he met future President, John F. Kennedy. 

Bill and his son Jackson personally reviewed, edited, and approved every story NFT in the collection. They also worked closely with author John Resig to add context to the stories we all know and love, while also contributing dozens of stories few have ever heard.

Each of these story-based NFTs features a unique design inspired by the story, and each original story is combined with 9 additional destination colorways around the world through the places that shaped the man himself. For every trip Bill has taken, a part of that destination stayed with him and those changes are reflected through his lens, clothing, and attire, all represented by each city’s most famous colors.  The result of all this (we did the math) is 1000 unique story/design/colorway combinations with something special for every Bill Murray collector.

A photo-realistic, large-format, acrylic-on-canvas portrait of Bill Murray, created by artist David Grizzle, visually anchors the Bill Murray 1000 NFT collection. The physical artwork, along with the Origin NFT #000, was auctioned August, 2022 for 119.2 ETH, approximately US$185,000 at the time of auction. 100% of proceeds from the auction were donated to charity. 

For more than a decade, theCHIVE has built a community of millions around Bill Murray. Now the Bill Murray 1000 NFT collection offers owners access to one-of-a-kind, in-person events with Bill Murray, rare coins minted for the collection, exclusive merchandise, and membership in The Shack – a Discord community filled with like-minded owners.

When you own a Bill Murray NFT, you are coming along for the ride. This is just the beginning. You can be part of a new universe where you can participate in the forward-evolution of the NFT with amazing community incentives and a whole lot of charity. You’ll also be granted access to a club that provides once-in-a-lifetime experiences with the man, the myth, the legend. Most of all? We’re gonna have FUN.
