LOS ANGELES – June 28, 2021 -- How epic would it be if a cult classic like American Psycho were immortalized on the blockchain?
If you are euphoric by even the thought, you’re in luck! Thanks to Evolution USA, a leading licensing and brand monetization agency, and Digital Collectibles Agency (DCA), the cinematic favorite American Psycho will be coming to the world of NFTs.
Starting today, Monday, June 28th, 2021 at 12 PM PDT, you’ll be able to own elements of the masterpiece by participating in a one-of-a-kind NFT drop. The drop features a collection that fuses 1980s materialism with an equally pervasive counterpart: 2020’s crypto gluttony. The NFTs are available exclusively on Curio, the premier NFT platform for entertainment brands and musical artists.
This drop not only leverages licensed work but it features official photography and creative assets from the film itself. NFT collectors in particular will appreciate the strategy behind the collection, as it maintains exclusivity while delivering on the authenticity of the American Psycho mythology.
The experience begins with the sale of 50 iconic business card NFTs from characters Patrick Bateman and Paul Allen each day for five days. These cards will give collectors a “reservation at Dorsia” -- a reference to the impossibly exclusive restaurant in the film -- and unlock access to the complete American Psycho NFT Gallery. Each business card purchased also earns a collector 25 raffle tickets for the chance to win one of nine #1 edition American Psycho Legendary NFTs in the daily raffle.
Upon entering “Dorsia,” collectors will have the ability to view, purchase and bid on 29 officially licensed American Psycho NFTs that include movie stills, iconic accessories, and three Ultimate one-of-one animations -- including Bitcoin Psycho -- that will be auctioned off.
With 50 editions for the Epic NFTs and 10 of the Legendary NFTs, fans can be assured that they’re buying limited edition collectibles. Exclusive reservation access expires on July 9th or when the collection sells out.
Travis J. Rutherford, Co-Founder & Chief Revenue Officer at Evolution, one of the project managers, sees this platform as an amazing opportunity to “launch the first NFT auction featuring a top-tier film with unique art and original photography.” Rutherford goes on to say that he’s been “impressed with Curio's ability to transform the entertainment space through groundbreaking technology, exclusive partnerships and innovative fan engagement.”
To date, the industry has seen successful auctions, galleries and exhibits featuring unique artists and entertainers but this drop takes novelty to the next level. Celebrating historical American cinema while emphasizing gamification and exclusivity of NFTs that have propelled the space to new heights, the American Psycho NFT collection is set to be another classic hit.
The American Psycho NFT collection will launch officially on June 28, 2021 on www.oncurio.com.
