Fox Will Launch NFT Animated Series, Krapoplis - A Marketplace For Non-Fungible Token
Blockchain technology has already hypnotized the entire world. So, why not the movie industry? As a result, Fox Broadcasting Company has collaborated with Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon to create “the very first animated series organized fully on the Blockchain.”
And the news is reported by Cointelegraph.
NFT Marketplace For Upcoming Animated Series
The ‘Krapopolis’ animated comedy series will debut alongside a specialized marketplace to sell symbolic digital products, such as non-fungible tokens portraying the show’s characters and artwork. In addition, the show intends to reward its most devoted followers with tokens that open “exclusive social experiences.”
Along with this collaboration, Fox announced the formation of a new NFT firm called “Blockchain Creative Labs,” which is intended to tap into the Krapopolis market and other shows in the future.
While details on what ‘fully organized on the blockchain’ entails are limited, Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier stated his aim to connect ad partners to NFTs during a Livestream presentation unveiling the platform. Form, stating:
“Not to go too far into it today, but as an advertiser-focused, artist-first and animation-obsessed company, Fox is going to take advertisers into the world of blockchain-powered tokens, including NFTs.”
What About Krapopolis
Fox-owned Bento Box Entertainment will produce the animated series Krapopolis.
However, the series omits cryptocurrency because it is set in ancient Greece focuses on an “imperfect family of humans, gods and monsters trying to lead one of the first in the world. Cities without killing each other.
Dan Harmon rose to prominence as the writer and co-creator of Community and Rick and Morty, the latter of which won Primetime Emmy Awards in 2018 and 2020. The show is an uncensored parody of the blockbuster film. Back to the future, after the antics of time-traveling scientist Rick and his grandson Morty.
Justin Roiland, the other co-creator of Rick and Morty, quickly capitalized on the recent NFT craze. In January, Roiland sold an NFT dubbed “The Very First Edition of Rick and Morty Cryptoart” for $ 150,000 through a silent auction on Gemini-owned NFT platform, Nifty Gateway.
