More Disney NFTs? That sure is swell!
Following the release of crypto collectibles based on the popular Star Wars franchise, Cryptoys is now unveiling its latest collection named “Mickey and Friends”.
Having secured $23 million in a Series A funding round last year, backed by renowned toymaker Mattel, Cryptoys plans to unveil the collection next month.
The offering consists of a 15-piece set, each showcasing varying “skin designs” and levels of rarity, according to a company statement. Both Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Pluto will be turned into NFT and will come with a price tag of $39.99.
Interestingly, this isn’t Mickey Mouse’s debut in the digital collectible realm. VeVe Digital Collectibles had earlier rolled out NFTs bearing the likeness of the world-famous mouse.
May the force be with you
But Mickey isn’t the only star getting a digital makeover. Cryptoys aims to augment its Star Wars collection by introducing the beloved character, Yoda. Existing holders of Star Wars collectibles can look forward to an added bonus: a digital Yoda plaything will be airdropped to them.
Until now, Star Wars enthusiasts had the choice of adding characters like Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia to their digital collection.
Impossible to measure the success of the drops
However, transparency remains a challenge for Cryptoys. Utilizing the Flow blockchain for their digital collectibles, there isn’t any accessible on-chain data to gauge the success of their collections. The company has previously released a Star Wars series and three iterations based on Masters of the Universe characters, but sales data remains elusive.
Furthermore, trading these digital toys appears off the table. Currently, Cryptoys neither operates its own active marketplace nor supports any third-party platforms.
