Five Spider-Man Collectibles are On Sale
The first series of Marvel non-fungible tokens will feature Spider-Man, and each item will include a digital three-dimensional model. Animated figures and still figures are both available.
There are five different variations on the comics superhero, with prices ranging between $40 to $400 per collectible.
VeVe’s distribution model also includes secondary market fees. This means that sellers can earn 8.5% of each collectible’s sale price in VeVe’s “Gems” currency if the item is resold.
VeVe will begin to sell the items on Aug. 7 at 8 AM PST.
VeVe has minted these and other NFTs on Immutable X, a second-layer network for the Ethereum blockchain.
More Marvel Items to Come
Marvel originally announced its line of NFTs at the end of June, when it revealed its partnership with VeVe on its website.
Future Marvel collectibles will feature Wolverine, Iron Man, and Captain America. The NFT lineup will also include digital comic books, according to earlier announcements from Marvel.
VeVe is additionally working with other popular media brands including DC Comics, Ghostbusters, and Jurassic Park.
Marvel CEO Dan Buckley has stated that NFTs are a way of “extending [the collector’s] experience for our fans over the years to come.” Meanwhile, VeVe co-founder and COO Dan Crothers has said that the effort aims to “imitate the physical world of collecting” in a way that is “exciting, authentic, and sustainable.”
In February, several Marvel comic artists independently sold their artwork through the NFT platform Portion.io. Those sales are unrelated to Marvel’s official NFT efforts.
