Marvel follows up its Spider-Man non-fungible token (NFT) collection with a release celebrating ‘the first Avenger.’
Marvel has announced the launch of a new NFT collection titled “Marvel Mightys — Season 1 — Captain America,” on the VeVe marketplace. The new iconic film and television branch of Disney Studios plans to “take it up to the next level,” with the debut of collectibles from numerous franchise stars such as Captain American along with Captain Marvel and Sam Wilson. The release is a complimentary succession to the recently released Spider-Man NFT collection and is the second offering to celebrate ‘Marvel Month.’ The Spidey collection sold all 60,500 NFTs within 24-hours of launch.
Unlike the Spider-Man collection, the Captain America set features just one NFT of Steve Rodgers as Cap’ with four other characters to collect. The Spider-Man collection featured five different NFTs of the friendly neighborhood superhero. Additionally, the ‘Marvel Mightys’ line of collectibles is designed in a way to portray the characters as young teenagers, much like DC’s Teen Titans. The site says that “the Marvel Mightys line adds a new spin to some of Marvel’s most iconic Super Heroes. No Pym technology or gamma radiation was used in the creation of these digital figures. They may look small, but they’re still Mighty.”
Marvel’s VP of business development and strategy, Daniel Fink, added that “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.”
Marvel Mighty’s Season 1 Collection
Unlike the Spider-Man release, all of the sales are randomized via what Marvel is calling ‘Blind Boxes.’ Basically, the idea is that each box is $13 and contains one NFT. That NFT can be from the common tier of exclusivity to the ultra-rare examples.
Season 1 of the collection features Captain America along with important characters to the franchise within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). As with the Spider-Man collection, five unique digital statues will be available, each with a different rarity. The most common Marvel Mighty’s are Steve Rodgers as Captain America and Sam Wilson as Falcon. Each will have 28,888 copies minted.
Next is the uncommon release featuring John F. Walker as his version of Captain America, commonly known as US Agent. The character has become popular after being featured in the recent Falcon and the Winter Soldier show.
Bucky Barnes’ version of Cap’ is the rare NFT for the set, with 11,888 examples being minted. And, finally, Red Skill is the ultra-rare piece of the set with just 4,888 minted for sale.
VeVe was chosen to host Marvel NFTs partially due to the ease of which sales can be done on the platform. VeVe allows users to rely on credit cards and not actually own and cryptocurrency in order to buy NFTs.
