Marvel entered the crypto space with the new NFTs being a hot topic in the past few months and many companies, singers, actors, and athletes joined the craze. Fox Broadcasting Company partnered with Dan Harmon who is the co-creator of Rick and Morty to start developing animated series based on blockchain technology. The popular comedy show dubbed “krapopolis” will launch NFTs showing Rick, Morty, and other characters of the animation. The series plans to reward the most devoted fans with tokens that grant only exclusive social experiences. Marvel’s main rival DC Comics dipped its toes in the NFT space as well and the company partnered with VeVe too to launch a digital collection for Batman.
