It consists of eight original pieces of art, an original music track called “NFT,” and a limited edition “Snoop Dogge Coins”. The limited-edition piece will reportedly only be available for an hour after its launch.
Why It Matters: “I’ve seen the game change over the years from analog to digital and I’m always happier when the technology lets the fans get to connect with the artists. NFT’s are an amazing innovation and it is an honor to do my first drop with Crypto. com/NFT," said Snoop Dogg.
The rapper also declared that a portion of the proceeds from this NFT sale would go towards supporting young and emerging artists in the crypto space, and Snoop’s Youth Football League.
NFT collectors and traders can acquire, trade, and resell NFTs on the Crypto.com platform using their credit or debit cards or pay with their cryptocurrency holdings, including Bitcoin BTC/USD, Ethereum ETH/USD, and Dogecoin DOGE/USD.
“We’re thrilled to have worked with Snoop Dogg on his first NFT drop. He’s been a cultural icon and a trend-setting artist throughout his career. His upcoming drop will be no different.”, said Joe Conyers III, EVP, Global Head of NFTs for Crypto.com.
Despite being newly launched, Crypto.com expects its NFT platform to be one of the largest in the space, given that its cryptocurrency exchange already has a user base of over ten million.
The NFT platform will see upcoming debut NFT drops from several other mainstream artists and organizations, including Lionel Richie, BossLogic, and Aston Martin Cognizant Formula OneTM.
