The Company Fox has teamed up with Dan Harmon, co-creator of Rick and Morty, to create what they call the “first fully coordinated animated series on the blockchain”..
The animated comedy series titled “Krapopolis” will be launched in conjunction with a special marketplace selling tokenized digital goods, including non-fungible tokens representing the characters and illustrations that appear throughout the show.. The series also hopes to reward its most dedicated fans with tokens that unlock “exclusive social experiences”.
Together with the association, Fox has announced the start of NFT’s new Blockchain Creative Labs project, which is expected to serve the Krapopolis and other shows market in the future..
While there is little detail on what exactly “fully blockchain-tuned” means, Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment, outlined plans to introduce advertising partners to NFTs during a presentation broadcast to publicize the platform.. He stated:
“I’m not going to get into that deeply today, but as an ad-supported company that prioritizes artists and is obsessed with animation, Fox will usher advertisers into the world of blockchain-based tokens, including NFTs.”
Krapopolis is produced by Fox’s Bento Box Entertainment, but there is no reference to cryptocurrencies in the seriesSet in Ancient Greece, it revolves around a “flawed family of people, gods and monsters who try to run one of the first cities in the world without killing each other”.
Dan Harmon became famous for writing and contributing to Community and Rick and Morty. The latter won the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2018 and 2020. The series is a parody of the popular film Back To The Future, which follows the antics of the time-traveling scientist Rick and his grandson Morty.
Justin Roiland, the other co-creator of Rick and Morty, quickly benefited from the recent NFT craze. In January Roiland sold an NFT titled “Rick and Morty First Edition Cryptoart” for $ 150,000 through a silent auction on Gemini’s own NFT platform, Nifty Gateway..
