Tune-Verse meets Crypto-Verse

Welcome to the Jam - the Space Jam.  The creators of the Loony Tunes-based sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy teamed with Niftys.com to release 91,000 Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), in the largest drop of NFTs from a film ever. 

The hottest new movie from out of this world, Space Jam: A New Legacy NFTs drew increased exposure thanks to their iconic subject material. The launch came four days ahead of the film's release on July 16.

Jeff Marsilio, CEO and co-founder of Nifty's, expressed excitement in a press release on July 12: “We are thrilled to introduce Nifty's to the world with exciting content from Warner Bros. and to launch our community as an inviting home base for new and experienced explorers of the NFT universe.” 

Nifty’s which is backed by Mark Cuban, combined with Warner Bros. to tackle this once-in-a-generation drop. 

Sold-Out Fast

The popularity of the franchise caused the first iterations of the release to sell out fast. The release teased registered Niftys users with a free NFT as well as a second free NFT for a social media post hyping the movie. 

Users could also purchase an NFT for $2.99 from a limited supply. Awards were randomized with all rarities possible to be purchased.
