Marvel Just Launched Its First Official NFTs Featuring Spider-Man
Marvel is getting into NFTs—starting with Spider-Man. The company made the announcement along with Orbis Blockchain Technologies Limited, a digital collectibles company that operates the VeVe Digital Collectibles App.
There will be various limited quantities and categories such as common, uncommon, rare, ultra-rare, and secret-rare. Of course, the different rarities correspond to the prices of each digital statue with each ranging from $40 up to $400.
That said, there will be thousands of NFTs available for each rarity. With Marvel's popularity, however, we wouldn't be surprised if the collectible release sells out fast when it drops on August 7 at 8:00 a.m. PT.
"Spider-Man is one of the most legendary Super Heroes in the Marvel Universe, so there was no better way to kick off our global digital collectibles experience with VeVe," said Dan Buckley, President, Marvel Entertainment. "We can't wait to bring Marvel fans and collectors even more exciting drops throughout August and beyond."
"It is very exciting to see our collaboration with Marvel finally come to fruition," said David Yu, Co-Founder & CEO, VeVe. "We cannot wait to offer fans unique ways to collect their favorite Marvel Super Heroes and memorabilia in digital form. Marvel has been a great partner and we look forward to celebrating the 'Marvel Month' with fans around the world on the VeVe app."
