Rolling Stone has partnered up with Coinbase to publish an exclusive Rolling Stone Live NFT collection featuring 12 digital artists in the blockchain realm. Rolling Stone Live event, to be held in Los Angeles, will mark its first collaboration with Coinbase. According to Rolling Stone, the artists were entrusted with developing the NFTs that also highlight the Rolling Stone logo.
Rolling Stone’s exclusive 12 pieces NFT collection
Their exclusive 12 pieces NFT collection includes the artworks of artists from different genres:
Artists include Deadfellaz, Elise Swopes, Boss Beauties, Kideight, Mikegrillmadeit, Markthehabibi, Domino, Giant Swan, Alida Sun, Jeff Manning, Mister Goldie, and Emonee LaRussa.
Rolling in to the NFT world
The American magazine said the event “marks the beginning of an ongoing partnership” between Rolling Stone and Coinbase. Later in the year, the release states that the artwork will be animated before being purchased on the marketplace Coinbase NFT. “The limited-edition will offer fans an exceptional chance to purchase a piece of history made by some of the crypto space’s most prominent digital artists,” Rolling Stone’s statement continues.
The relationship with Coinbase and the unique non-fungible token drop is not Rolling Stone’s first time experimenting with NFTs. Last year, Rolling Stone worked with the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT initiative and released a particular collector’s edition zine.
Lisa Mayer, the founder, and CEO of Boss Beauties stated her team is happy to add to the collection of NFTs. “Having the chance to partner with an iconic brand like Rolling Stone and an innovative business like Coinbase has been incredibly inspiring,” Mayer said in a statement announcing the announcement on February 3. She added, “We’re pleased to be chosen among so many other renowned creators and are excited to see how it all comes together.”
Growing demand for NFTS
According to Google Trends, users are looking for ‘NFT’ more than ever—and “crypto” is not the most popular search on Google’s search engine anymore.
People are bidding thousands to possess these artifacts, and some are selling for millions. The analysis shows that sales of NFTs have climbed from $41 million in 2018 to $2.5 billion in the first half of 2021. With celebrities jumping on the circus, the popularity proliferates.
