A private Star Wars nonfungible token collection will be listed on StarColl’s marketplace.
StarColl, an NFT marketplace and collection devoted solely to one of the world’s largest private Star Wars memorabilia collections, is about to list digital twins of its catalog.
Early registration will begin on May 4 — “Star Wars Day,” according to a Tuesday announcement.
Over 800 limited edition collectibles from the popular sci-fi film series will be published as nonfungible tokens on the StarColl marketplace as part of the Star Wars set.
Each StarColl NFT is a digital replica of a physical object from the vast Star Wars series. Owners of each NFT will reportedly be able to include their names in the NFT metadata, which will be shown in all future StarColl traveling exhibits.
Ownership of NFTs from the listing will also entitle the holder to free lifetime passes to the StarColl global traveling show.
The announcement also revealed that all metadata and ownership details was stored on the QAN blockchain platform, a decentralized network that is said to be immune to quantum search algorithm attack vectors.
Johann Polecsak, chief technical officer of QANplatform, commented on the StarColl NFT collection’s strong security:
“NFT security is a neglected topic today. Nobody speaks about cybersecurity issues and pain points behind the NFT ecosystem. Source files of NFTs sold for thousands of dollars can be easily changed to memes by hackers. StarColl NFTs will be secured by the Quantum-resistant QAN blockchain, where metadata and ownership information is stored.”
Pop culture-inspired NFTs are very common, with artists and developers minting digital twins based on iconic movies, songs, and other works of art.
Mogul Productions, a decentralized movie financing network, announced plans to release NFTs in partnership with comic book artist Rob Prior in March.
Celebrity NFTs are also becoming more popular at the nexus of blockchain art and pop culture. Cointelegraph previously announced that skateboarding legend Tony Hawk and rap-rock pioneer Mike Shinoda have both launched their own NFTs.
