About

We love people. And we love life.

 

We also realize that many are struggling—from Covid lockdowns, mask mandates, and an endless stream of negative messages in our media and social media.

How It Started

Two college students at a Kansas-based college conceived, founded and launched HappyBit. Immersed in both college life and the world of social media, founders James and Will saw first-hand the effects that normal life have had on their peers, families and wider culture. Amplified by the Covid crisis and the never-ending drumbeat of negative news in our media and social media, issues related to anxiety, depression and mental health are increasing with each new passing day.

 

Introducing HappyBit!

HappyBit is a limited collection of Non-Fungible Token collected of randomly generated pixelated “smiley faces” that promote happiness and send a message to the world that you are either happy (or on your way to happiness) and that you care about those who are struggling.

 

They’re producing 1,000 unique HappyBit NFTs, and invite you to join them as they share a little bit of happiness with the world, and on behalf of those who are struggling with issues of anxiety, depression and mental health.

Our Mission

Healthy minds lead to a better life…better relationships…better communities and businesses…and ultimately to a better world.

 

We want to play a small part in both communicating happiness and also helping those who are struggling…with issues of anxiety, depression and mental health.
