This month, renowned American actor and comedian Bill Murray announces a new NFT project based on Ethereum, based on his life and story.
NFT is based on painting
According to the article, blockchain company initiative Benkman and the website “The Chives” are working together to develop the “Bill Murray 1,000” project.
According to a Decrypt interview with Murray’s son Jackson, the famous actor wants to provide as many anecdotes as possible to the NFT initiative from the entertainment era.
1,000 NFT merchandise based on 100 stories from Murray’s career, including his work on Saturday Night Live and movies, will be available through the initiative.
According to the article, each NFT is based on an original painting by David Grizzle Murray with its own background.
Through language and art, each piece also tells a story about the undead.
Jackson Murray revealed to Decrypt that his father was interested in the NFT project after talking to co-founder and president of The Chives, John Resig.
The performers initially opposed Resig’s declaration that Murray’s next stage of growth would be “absolutely NFT.” Jackson claims that despite being fully aware of the digital potential, his father finally came up with the idea of launching an NFT collection.
Jackson claimed that his father had considered issuing a membership card that rewards collectors with benefits such as admission to future tailored events that may meet famous actors.
Murray has the opportunity to tell the world about his real story thanks to the NFT collection.
Why choose Ethereum?
When non-fungible tokens (NFTs) first appeared in 2017, popular NFTs such as Cryptopunks and Cryptokitties quickly caught the attention of investors. Since then, the NFT market has expanded rapidly, with Ethereum being one of the main drivers.
The first network to support smart contracts was Ethereum. Thanks to smart contracts, defining ownership of NFTs and controlling transferability has become much easier.
In addition, Ethereum has developed the ERC-721 token standard specifically for the production of NFTs. Therefore, Ethereum provided the framework for NFTs and opened the door to a revolution in digital assets.
