NFT collectible mobile platform VeVe is releasing the first James Bond 007 NFT collection. This drops just in time for the release of the 25th Bond movie, No Time to Die.
Veve might not have a Licence to Kill but they do have a license to mint.
The mobile digital and NFT collectible platform VeVe, in a partnership with MGM studio & EON Productions, celebrate the release of the new James Bond film. No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond film, premiers September 20th, and with it premiers the first-ever official James Bond NFTs.
VeVe is stepping into some big shoes as it partners with a franchise that dates back to 1952. Though when the spy series was first cooked up by author Ian Fleming, one can doubt he envisioned his character as an asset on a blockchain.
The bond series, however, is no stranger to partnering with other media. Ever since the first Bond Film in 1962, “Dr. No”, the iconic franchise has partnered with other organizations to produce toys, games, vehicles, and more that go along with the movies. VeVe might just be the most recent but what they bring will help bring Bond memorabilia to the 21st century.
“As one of the longest-running and most successful film franchises of all time, James Bond continues to evolve and innovate to meet the demands of our devoted audiences around the globe… We are thrilled to partner with VeVe to create the first-ever digital collectible from ‘No Time To Die,’ and offer fans an exclusive opportunity to own a piece of cinematic history.”-MGM’s Chief Marketing Officer Stephen Bruno

VeVe has yet to announce all details of exact NFTs. For example, it is unclear what amounts of NFTs are dropping and how much they are selling for. It is also unknown what films and actors the NFTs will represent. . Some information about the drop is known, though. Digital collectibles from the James Bond series are set to include iconic items from the “No Time To Die” film.
‘As fans of Bond, the film franchise’s legacy, and its ongoing impact worldwide, we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring an array of Bond digital collectibles to VeVe and our passionate community of collectors.-Dan Crothers, COO, and Co-Founder of VeVe,
