More from the press release:
The Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) movement has seen a massive increase in interest over the past twelve months. The tokens are unique digital files that are stored on the Ethereum blockchain which allows the verification, ownership and provenance of these digital files. Much of this excitement stems from the growing interest in cryptocurrencies and the rise in value of generative art and collectible NFTs.
“We are thrilled to offer at auction our first series of collectible NFT trading cards, while also offering new and existing subscribers to Screambox their first chance at redeeming a free collectible trading card,” said Tony Huidor, Cinedigm’s Chief Technology & Product Officer. “We see this as a great opportunity for us to reward our new subscribers, as well as our existing loyal subscribers, by offering them an opportunity to participate in the new and exciting world of collectible NFTs.”
“Rad and Cinedigm are continuing to push the industry forward together, and we couldn’t be more excited about launching this NFT collection in partnership with them,” said Tony Mugavero, Rad’s CEO. “We’re innovating the next wave of NFTs, working with top-tier artists doing one-of-a-kind works, and pairing that with Bloody Disgusting, utility, and rare collectability all in one. It’s a game-changer.”
“We’re excited to expand our partnership with Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting to drop this first collection of curated NFTs from renowned artists,” said Matthew Collado, Co-Founder of Rad. “We see NFT based tokenized access, generative art sets and membership collections as the future of IP creation and content distribution.”
“The images created for the first series in these Bloody Disgusting Blood Pack NFTs are incredible,” said Tom Owen, Co-Founder of Bloody Disgusting. “Horror fans have a chance to collect these one-of-a-kind NFTs and receive a physical print signed by one of these legendary artists.”
