Hey, this sounds fairly enjoyable: Dan Harmon has a brand new animated collection on the way in which referred to as Krapopolis “centered on a flawed household of people, gods and monsters that tries to run one of many world’s first cities with out killing one another.” Could possibly be cool, proper? His different exhibits typically make for good TV — other than a brand new legion of unbearable Harmon followers, we don’t see how there may very well be something to make us roll our eyes on the undertaking earlier than we see any kind of casting, art work, or precise episodes…
Okay, come the hell on. What does “the first-ever animated collection curated completely on the Blockchain” even imply? Is it a cartoon somebody can solely watch via the Brave browser? Does everybody who stakes it get a say about what occurs every new season? Will a spin-off “fork” away from Krapopolis into a brand new present that’s just about the very same factor, however with one or two minor particulars modified?
“To not go too far into it at present, however… Fox goes to take advertisers into the world of blockchain-powered tokens, together with NFTs,” Fox Leisure CEO Charlie Collier reportedly explained to advertisers in an internet presentation. So, it’s one other too-late-to-the-party NFT advertising and marketing gimmick? Acquired it. Properly, a minimum of Justin Roiland will do some humorous voices on this one, too.
Collectible NFTs for a nonexistent present — In keeping with a write-up earlier this week from The Hollywood Reporter, it feels like the principle factor contributing in the direction of the Krapopolis blockchain technicality is its promotion of an internet market “that may curate and promote digital items, starting from NFTs of one-of-a-kind character and background artwork and GIFs, in addition to tokens that present unique social experiences to interact and reward superfans.”
In essence, it feels like so much like a venue solely for restricted version and uncommon collectible Krapopolis swag. We’d say that’s fully ridiculous, however… properly, Dan Harmon’s followers are fairly rattling diehard, so who the hell is aware of?
Add it to the NFT pile — Properly, from the sound of issues, it undoubtedly looks as if a “blockchain” cartoon is yet another shoehorned crypto-integration that can get tossed onto the mountain of ridiculous NFT projects.
Don’t get us unsuitable — there are some very solid reasons to help NFT marketplaces associated to moral inventive possession and compensation… however Dan Harmon is a millionaire. He doesn’t want ridiculous quantities of crypto-wealth added to that pile. Extra energy to anybody who needs to spend a bunch of Ethereum on a Krapopolis GIF, however as for us, we’ll in all probability simply tune in to the present each time it lastly airs.
