Marvel And VeVe Release First Ever Spider-Man NFTs

Starting this weekend, Marvel Entertainment will release the first-ever Spider-Man NFTs. In order to achieve this, Marvel teams up with VeVe, a blockchain app-based marketplace, for premium digital collectibles. What makes VeVe perfect for the job is the fact that it already has experience in producing superhero NFTs. More specifically, back in March, VeVe did something similar with DC Comics by partnering and launching the Batman digital collection.

Spider-Man’s first-ever non-fungible tokens drop exclusively today, August 7th. The first-ever Spider-Man collectibles will come in five different versions of the superhero. The cost of each version varies and it ranges between $40 and $400. Furthermore, 32.000 have the chance to purchase the cheapest $40 Spider-Man version. Additionally, the 1000 most expensive tokens have a cost of $400, each.

Naturally, both Marvel and VeVe are quite content with the new partnership deal. For that matter, the President of Marvel Entertainment, Dan Buckley, announces that Spider-Man is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to releasing new digital collectibles for superheroes:

Spider-Man is one of the most legendary Super Heroes in the Marvel Universe, so there was no better way to kick off our global digital collectibles experience with VeVe. We can’t wait to bring Marvel fans and collectors even more exciting drops throughout August and beyond.Dan Buckley | CEO of Marvel Entertainment

Consequently, it should come as no surprise that VeVe sees this as an excellent opportunity. More specifically, he said:

It is very exciting to see our collaboration with Marvel finally come to fruition. We cannot wait to offer fans unique ways to collect their favorite Marvel Super Heroes and memorabilia in digital form. Marvel has been a great partner and we look forward to celebrating ‘Marvel Month’ with fans around the world on the VeVe app.David Yu | Co-Founder & CEO of VeVe

It seems like the global craze for NFTs is just getting started. Especially if you take into account the number of digital collectibles emerging by the day. Starting with athletes, up to superheroes and musicians. Everyone wants a piece of the NFTs. Similar to FOX, which partnered with the creators of Rick and Morty to create digital collectibles with the TV show’s main characters. Something that many fans of the show are eagerly looking forward to.
