The founder of tech giant OnlyFans is to launch a trading platform for celebrity NFTs.
Polygon supports Zoo hosted on the decentralized Ethereum scaling blockchain, allowing users to buy, sell, collect and trade their favorite celebrity 3D digital playing cards.
Fans can also get officially licensed cards on the platform and sell and trade them in the secondary market.
The team will be led by co-CEOs Tim Stokely and RJ Phillips, who founded OnlyFans in London five years ago. Stokely will be in time for this summer’s launch.
OnlyFans, which allows you to pay for user-generated content through subscriptions and tips, has grown exponentially against the backdrop of adult content. Last year it made $ 1.2 billion in revenue.
“Zoop is a trusted home for real celebrity card drops, allowing all fans to join the web3 space, regardless of their technical expertise,” Phillips said.
“We hold the hands of users competing for digital collectibles in the auction process, show off their belongings to friends, and” collect and connect “with your favorite celebrities today and tomorrow.
“Zoop provides access to communities based on the cards they own and gives users points for interactions within these communities.
“It’s a win for celebrities, it creates excitement for fans and creates new ways for brands to connect with their customers.”
Fans also have the ability to participate in competitions and challenges to earn points and “unlock special rewards, including access to like-minded communities.”
Michael Blank, COO of Polygon Studios, said:
“Zoop is in line with our mission to bring Web3 technology to a wider range of demographics, and allowing fans to connect to their favorite celebrities via Polygon is another goal. It’s a step. ”
EY: Ethereum is a blockchain window
Ernst & Young Global’s blockchain reader expects Ethereum to become the “industry standard”, much like the Internet TCP / IP protocol and Microsoft Windows.
Paul Brody said he hopes Ethereum will eventually “take over everything” in MarketWatch’s distributed ledger.
He states: “At EY, we have a great choice of which ecosystem to work in. We audit many ecosystems, but we only develop in the Ethereum ecosystem.
“Ethereum is exactly the biggest ecosystem, isn’t it? If you’re good at only one thing, you have to be good at one that has the biggest market.
“People talk about multi-chain as if it were a given kind of thing. For example, we are all heading for the future of multi-chain. It’s really weird. There is no multi-network internet. There is TCP / IP over Ethernet.
“The tech industry loves standards. TCP / IP is standard. Windows is standard. Due to the high overhead it is very rare to use a truly heterogeneous ecosystem.”
