Marvel NFTs to be available on VeVe marketplace by 2022
The VeVe virtual marketplace will soon have official nonfungible tokens and digital comic books from Marvel Entertainment.
According to the entertainment company, the NFTs will include digital collectibles and digital comic books which Marvel fans can trade as well as display in virtual showrooms.
“We hope to expand the limits of what Marvel fandom can be, starting with personal and interactive digital collectibles that, through NFTs, fans can truly collect, share, and enjoy in a way that they have not been able to do before,” said Daniel Fink, Marvel’s vice president of business development and strategy.
All the digital collectibles will be minted on the blockchain and be available for users to buy and sell to others on VeVe’s secondary marketplace with the in-app token Gems (GEM).
The VeVe app accepts payments via credit cards and already offering digital collectibles with characters from DC Comics, Star Trek, and other franchises.
However, Marvel has largely not been directly involved with the crypto space, individual artists can still offer their work featuring known characters.
Back in February, an NFT featuring a Spiderman drawing by Adam Kubert sold for more than $25,000 on Portion.io.
