Fox says its upcoming animated show “Krapopolis,” created by Dan Harmon, will be the first series “curated entirely on the blockchain.”
On Monday, Fox revealed new details about the animated show, and one of the attractions is its connection to the blockchain and NFT technology. The plans for “Krapopolis” were revealed as part of Fox’s upfronts presentation to advertisers, where Fox promoted its upcoming TV lineup for brands to consider.
“Krapopolis” is trying to generate interest and interactions among fans through NFTs—non-fungible tokens, which are one-of-a-kind digital goods that are “minted” through the blockchain, the same technology that creates cryptocurrencies. “Krapopolis,” which draws themes from Greek mythology, will turn characters and artwork into NFT collectibles.
“The company will launch a dedicated marketplace for 'Krapopolis' that will curate and sell digital goods, ranging from NFTs of one-of-a-kind character and background art, and GIFs, as well as tokens that provide exclusive social experiences to engage and reward super fans,” Fox said in its announcement on Monday.
