Crypto.com has announced that rapper Snoop Dogg will debut his first NFT collection on the platform entitled “A Journey with the Dogg”. The collection will highlight Snoop Dogg’s memories from his early years with art inspired by the NFT movement including an original track “NFT.”
The drop is scheduled for Friday, April 2nd at 4pm PT for 24 hours only. A total of eight pieces will be available in limited quantities with one piece being auctioned, and another — “Snoop Dogge Coins” — will be an open edition piece available for one hour only.
“I’ve seen the game change over the years from analog to digital and I’m always happier when the technology lets the fans get to connect with the artists. NFT’s are an amazing innovation and it is an honor to do my first drop with Crypto.com/NFT,” Snoop Dogg said in a press release.
The Crypto.com/nft platform is dedicated to delivering unique content from popular artists, musicians, athletes, and sports. Any collector or fan can acquire, trade, and resell NFTs using a debit or credit card. The platform also supports Crypto Pay, which allows users 20 cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and even Dogecoin.
“We’re thrilled to have worked with Snoop Dogg on his first NFT drop. He’s been a cultural icon and a trend setting artist throughout his career. His upcoming drop will be no different. I can’t wait to see the reaction from Crypto.com’s 10+ Million global user base,” Joe Conyers III, EVP, Global Head of NFTs for Crypto.com said.
A portion of the proceeds will support young, emerging artists in the crypto space as well as Snoop’s Youth Football League.
