To recall, BollyCoin arrived in October this year announcing its plans for a marketplace that would offer original Bollywood-based NFTs. Notably, the platform has its own cryptocurrency token, which is currently listed on decentralised exchanges UniSwap and QuickSwap. To one’s surprise, BollyCoin managed to close its pre-sale round of 20 million tokens worth $2 million within a month.
“We’re excited and curious to see the audience’s response to the Dabangg NFT collection. It was one of the most requested films from our community, so we really hope to do it justice. The character and the franchise are undeniably iconic, so it’s definitely an exciting way to kick off our project,” Kyle Lopes, BollyCoin, Co-Founder speaking on the announcement said.
BollyCoins were sold at a fixed price of Rs 7 per token, and those purchasing the tokens could have access to real-world benefits each time they sold NFTs on the platform, as per the company.
While this has taken the internet by storm, he is not just the only actor to have invested on NFT. Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan earlier this year launched his special NFT collectibles that carried self-autographed vintage posters. As for global celebs, just recently Katy Perry launched her first set of NFT collectibles worldwide in collab with Theta Network.
