Playboy is joining the sexiest and hottest scene around right now: NFTs.
The infamous American men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine announced on Twitter their partnership with Nifty Gateway. Their entry into NFTs is a continuation of Playboy’s long history of providing a platform for artists and creative self-expression.
Playboy has big plans in store for all the fans, including curated NFT art collections from their nearly 70-year archive of art and photography. The first collection they will release is in collaboration with popular digital artist slimesunday. The collection will feature new original works that use incredible imagery and inspiration from the Playboy archive. Playboy is also partnering up with Blake Kathryn and will be part of her upcoming Pride-themed curation which will be released in June this year.
Playboy recently purchased Beeple’s ‘Bull Run’ from collector 888 on Nifty Gateway, so some people were already speculating as to whether or not Playboy will be the first adult magazine to join the NFT community.
The team behind Playboy are very enthusiastic and excited about the future and possibilities that NFTs bring, stating that “We are thrilled by all of the innovation and access the blockchain can bring, and a big piece of our work will be supporting artists as a collector and via upcoming grants. We’re here to learn, support the community and innovate together.”
No further details have been released as yet, but follow Playboy on Twitter to stay in the loop about what’s coming next.
