‘83’ movie, while stirring the box-office with its record-breaking collections, it is also shaking the NFT industry with its record sales. The movie’s official digital collectibles (NFTs) which were launched by India’s first Bollywood NFT marketplace which is both purchasable as well saleable, ‘Social Swag’ made another ground-breaking record by selling 10 lakh worth of NFTs within an hour after the launch of the movie’s official NFTs.
NFT Marketplace Social Swag is an influencer-led fan engagement platform, for the exclusive drop of official digital collectibles (NFTs) of movies. The NFTs sold by the platform comprises an incredible portfolio of digital and phigital (digital + physical) NFTs that will appeal both to Bollywood and Cricket fans, as well as NFT collectors and enthusiasts, globally. Based on the true story of India’s iconic 1983 World Cup victory against the West Indies, the 83 movie stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, and Pankaj Tripathi, among other Bollywood icons. The NFTs include autographed physical cricket memorabilia, certified-authentic video moments, PFP-style animated digital avatars, and autographed unseen posters and images.
Minted on the Polygon blockchain, the 83 movies NFTs comprise a few distinct collections.
“India as a nation has always been obsessed with both Cricket and Bollywood and this time too the people of India have shown their love from all corners of the country, especially Tier I and II cities. While we were expecting purchases mainly from metros, cities like Jabalpur, Kanpur, Nagpur, Trivedaram, Solapur, etc. took lead in accepting the buzzing culture of NFTs,” said Atharva Sabnis, CEO of NFT Labs, technology partner to Social Swag.
“With NFTs, for the first time, people can own a piece of that moment and own a piece of history! A possibility that no one would have imagined before Web 3.0. We are glad that we can facilitate this and thank the team at 83 for partnering with us to execute this. And with the kind of response we have received for the NFTs, we are thrilled to announce that all the buyers are now entitled to free NFTs with our next airdrop”, he further added.
