A+E Networks has launched The History Channel NFT Marketplace, designed to allow history buffs, NFT enthusiasts, and The HISTORY Channel fans to unlock one-of-a-kind experiences and own a piece of history.
The premiere collectable from the new The History Channel NFT Marketplace – a piece by artist Derrick Adams exploring the theme ‘Our Place in History’ - was shared exclusively with the attendees of the recent HISTORYTalks 2022 event and, in effect, opened the marketplace for public exploration.
“A+E Networks is future-focused and we see great opportunity to utilize NFT technology to bring unique interpretations and extensions to our IP,” says Paul Buccieri, president, chairman, A+E Networks Group. “We’re excited to engage enthusiastic fans and celebrate some of the most indelible moments of our collective history in new creative ways.”
“The History Channel NFT Marketplace bridges the future of Web3 with historical treasures and celebrated moments, with truly unique pieces that anyone can own,” says Lance Still, senior vice president, consumer enterprises, A+E Networks. “And, because corporate responsibility and elevating unheard voices is crucial to our mission, we will be commissioning artists from underrepresented communities and diverse perspectives while also donating proceeds from many NFTs to related charitable causes.”
The History Channel NFT Marketplace will feature different genres of original art, collectables and digital assets that mark historic events, history-makers, cultural moments and holidays, as well as promote and celebrate programming events, fan-favorite talent and series. Many NFTs will include utilities to unlock bonus material and exclusive content, physical versions of the NFT (clothing, mugs, posters, etc.) or other merchandise from eCommerce stores. NFTs are slated to drop every other week so consumers can discover new favorite digital artists all the time.
The HISTORY Channel NFT Marketplace is a collaboration CakeWorks, a women-founded and owned full-service video agency.
