Heavy Metal Magazine Enters NFT Space With 5200 Pieces
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have had a great time this year, and that’s not stopping anytime soon. With several companies getting in on the NFT wave, Heavy Metal has announced that it’ll be dropping NFT items that represent the characters and stories that have been featured in its Magazine.
Heavy Metal Launch NFT
The publisher has played a pivotal role in shaping the heavy metal music scene in the US and giving Americans an inside view of the edgy world. The magazine not only introduced the finest international acts to the US, but it also made several underground superstars popular. But more than that, it also explored sci-fi, alternate realities, thrillers and more.
Now, all these iconic characters will return as NFTs with the 5,200 Krampus packs. Each pack will contain 3 NFTs with over 10 different NFT variants for each pack. The Heavy Metal mag will explore old characters loved by fans.
What further makes this concept amazing is that the NFTs won’t just be digital art, but those with the right combination will also have special prizes that include 10 Replicas of the AXE from Joe Trohman and Brian Posehn and 20 Taarna Painted Air Jordans.
Adidas, Others on the NFT Train
It’s not only Heavy Metal that’s on the NFT train. Adidas recently launched its NFT collection. It’s taking a step further in its romance with the blockchain technology that already includes a partnership with Coinbase.
The 30,000 item NFT collection, tagged “Into the Metaverse”, was launched in partnership with Bored Ape Yacht Club, PUNKS Comic, and GMoney. Interest in NFTs has grown as the idea of metaverse becomes more popular and mainstream.
Both Heavy Metal Magazine and Adidas NFT collections are based on the Ethereum blockchain and can be bought with ETH.
The coin, which is currently worth over $4,000, has been having a tough time in the bear market. Since it dropped from its ATH of $4,891.70, it’s been hovering around $4000. CoinMarketCap reports a 1.09% rise in its value in the past 24 hours with a 4.63% rise in the past 7 days.Source
