Cryptocurrency Feature: Beginning in 2021 and continuing with all our future collectibles, we will be embedding an NFC chip into the Santa. When this is scanned with any moderately newer smartphone (towards the bottom rear edge of the Santa), you'll be taken to a page on your mobile device that will show all the details related to your collectible. And you can register your new collectible from that page, too. So your new Santa will include $19.50 worth of Bitcoin, embedded into the resin. It's a fun tradition to start, every year, you scan your Santa to see how much Bitcoin has gone up or down since it was issued. You can read more about this on the "Crypto Embedded" page.
