With the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) craze continuing to soar, the news about new collections and projects being launched seems to be a given. Just last week, we heard about the South China Morning Post, DeLorean, Hasbro, Mattel, and Universal Music Group joining the craze by making use of the technology. Now Dolphin Entertainment has announced the launch of its own NFT collection: The Exiled Aliens.
The collection consists of more than 10,000 avatars designed by Dolphin Entertainment’s Creative Director and former Marvel Senior Visual Development Artist Anthony Francisco. These avatars will be unique when it comes to their design, traits, lore, and hierarchy, but will also provide their holders with unique perks such as private events and masterclasses, prizes, developing storylines, and more.
Unlike other companies, Dolphin Entertainment has decided to launch its NFT collection on the Solana Network, one of the fastest-growing blockchains in terms of development and cryptocurrency valuation. The high speed and low fees offered by “the fastest blockchain” have been too alluring for developers and artists, making it their go-to network for the launch of NFT-related projects, dApps, DeFi Protocols, and more, consistent with its latest earnings call transcript.
Francisco’s and Dolphin Entertainment’s connections and relevance in the industry will allow the project to benefit greatly from world-class relationships in the creative community, which are likely to play a role in upcoming collections. The company has already made it clear that there will be future seasons of the Creature Chronicles, as those holding Exiled Aliens Avatars will have priority for the purchase of future NFTs.
Those who acquire the NFTs in this collection will receive the NFT avatar and be included in the community, which grants them the benefits previously mentioned and more. To do so, users will need to use the FTX.US proprietary wallet and use one of the multiple payment methods: credit/debit card, SOL, ETH, and BTC.
Once the tokens are acquired they will be maintained and stored on the Solana Blockchain, which will allow holders to make use of any number of the many NFT marketplaces that are already running on the network. The choosing of Solana is not only relevant due to the low fees and fast transaction settlement speeds but also due to the low environmental impact it has, a concern that critics have been keen to point out when referring to NFTs.
