Comic book giant Marvel Entertainment has made a partnership with the VeVe marketplace to launch the first official Spider-Man NFTs. Collectibles will be available to superhero fans from Saturday 7th August. 32,000 people will have a chance to buy the cheapest option for $40, while the 1,000 of the most expensive NFTs will cost $400 each.
Marvel Entertainment president Dan Buckley opined that the release of non-fungible Spider-Man tokens is just the beginning, as he may release more superhero digital collectibles later this month:
“Spider-Man is one of the most legendary superheroes in the Marvel Universe, so there was no better way to kick off our global digital collectibles experience with VeVe. We can’t wait to bring Marvel fans and collectors even more exciting releases throughout August and beyond. ”
In turn, David Yu – co-founder and CEO of VeVe – praised the partnership with the entertainment company and revealed that they have been working on this collaboration for some time:
“It’s very exciting to see our collaboration with Marvel finally coming to fruition. We can’t wait to offer fans unique ways to collect their favorite Marvel superheroes and memorabilia in digital form. Marvel has been a great partner and we look forward to celebrating ‘Marvel month’ with fans all over the world on the VeVe app. ”
Fox Entertainment has also entered the NFT trend.
Non-fungible tokens have been a hot topic in recent months, and many companies, actors, singers, and athletes have joined the fad.
As CryptoPotato reported in May, Fox Broadcasting Company has partnered with Dan Harmon – co-creator of Rick and Morty – to develop animated series based on blockchain technology.
The popular comedy show, called ‘Krapopolis’, will release NFTs featuring Rick, Morty and the other main characters from the animation. The series also plans to reward its most dedicated fans with tokens that guarantee “exclusive social experiences“.
In March, Marvel’s main rival DC Comics took a step forward in the NFT industry as well for one of its own most iconic superheroes. The company has also partnered with VeVe to launch a digital collection for Batman.
