The goal of the new platform is to bring digital collectibles to a wider audience, giving users a space to interact with NFTs, regardless of their familiarity with the technology. The platform allows its members to discover and create NFT playlists that can be shared with friends or on the platform with no ownership requirement.
“We are delighted to introduce Nifty’s.
to the world with exciting Warner Bros. content and to launch our community as an attractive base of operations for new and experienced explorers of the NFT universe,” said Jeff Marsilio, CEO and co-founder of Nifty’s. “Nifty’s is a social network focused on NFT.
An NFT-centric social network
Space Jam ‘s NFTs were developed using Palm NFT Studio technology, which was developed by Ethereum software company ConsenSys. This series will feature James and eight characters from Looney Tunes‘ “Tune Squad.”
Digital collectibles will include two-dimensional and three-dimensional versions with five levels of rarity. Prizes will be randomized and users who register will have the chance to receive one of ten legendary versions of each NFT. In addition, collectors will reportedly also be able to purchase the additional tokens individually for a price of $2.99 USD.
Nifty’s first announced its NFT-centric social media platform in March of this year, touting big names like Mark Cuban and Joseph Lubin as investors. The ultimate vision of the project is to create a social networking community for digital collectibles that supports the new art scene while driving personal interactions.
At the time, billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had commented, “Nifty’s offers exactly what the digital collectibles space needs as it evolves into much more than a creative marketplace, namely community and social engagement.”
The NFT market has flourished in 2021 thanks to the growing widespread acceptance of digital collectibles. Last week, Major League Baseball (MLB) announced it will auction off a 2020 Los Angeles Dodgers World Series ring as part of an NFT giveaway. Also social platforms like Instagram are looking to add NFT functionality, as the market expands posting sales of more than USD$2.5 billion.
