Fox Broadcasting Company partnered up with Dan Harmon – co-creator of Rick and Morty – to develop animated series based on blockchain technology. The comedy series, dubbed ‘Krapopolis,’ will introduce the sale of non-fungible tokens illustrating the characters and artwork featured in the show.
Fox Enters The Crypto Community
The American commercial broadcast TV network Fox announced its partnership with ‘Rick and Morty’ co-creator Dan Harmon. The collaboration will aim to develop ”the very first animated series organized entirely on the blockchain.”
The popular comedy series, called ‘Krapopolis,’ will launch NFTs depicting Rick, Morty, and the other main characters of the animation. The show also plans to reward its most devoted fans with tokens that grant ”exclusive social experiences.” However, details are scarce about when exactly the project is set to start.
Furthermore, Fox revealed it will launch the new NFT company ”Blockchain Creative labs”, which is expected to connect with ”Krapopolis” and other shows in the near future.
Charlie Collier – Fox Entertainment CEO – outlined the company’s inovation and revealed his intention to add advertising partners to it:
”Not to go too far today, but as an adviser-centric, artist-first, and animation-obsessed company, Fox will lead advertisers into the world of blockchain-powered tokens, including the NFTs.”
The Rise of NFTs
The mass craze around non-fungible tokens has been a hot topic lately. Many celebrities and famous sportsmen such as Tyson Fury, Floyd Mayweather, and Eminem launched their own NFT collections. Moreover, the seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady revealed his intentions to launch his own NFT platform, called Autograph.
One of the most iconic sci-fi movies, Star Wars, also joined the NFT bandwagon. As CryptoPotato reported at the beginning of May, the fans of the franchise will have the chance to interact with more than 800 collectibles built as NFTs called StarColls.
The project aimed to commemorate the legendary series and outlined a ”new era for Star Wars memorabilia collecting when two forces like Star Wars collectibles and blockchain technology merge.”
Somewhat expectedly, the early registration for the Star Wars NFTs started on May the 4th. The fans of George Lucas’ iconic invention know the significance of this date, as it became the ”informal commemorative day” celebrating the saga.
