ViacomCBS will embark on a strategic partnership with RECUR to build a chain agnostic non-fungible token (NFT) platform.  Behind the likenesses of famous characters like Spongebob and South Park, the ViacomCBS deal looks to have a huge scope and hopes to onboard more crypto customers.

RECUR is keen to build a peer-to-peer engagement experience to match the power of the digital products and collectibles from ViacomCBS. The details in the Press Release from October 13 said the launch will come in Spring 2022. The deal is one of the first and most important NFT moves to date.

“ViacomCBS is one of the first major media and entertainment companies to enter the metaverse in a significant way. We are so excited to welcome them into the ecosystem with this partnership. Our chain agnostic approach will provide fans the widest range of utility as well as unprecedented access to their favorite shows and franchises,” said Co-CEOs of RECUR, Trevor George and Zach Bruch, in the press release.
