Artist Alec Monopoly’s collection “Rags to Richie” is the first project to debut publicly on HyperMint. HyperMint, MoonPay’s newly launched platform, enables companies, agencies, and brands to create, manage, as well as mint their own NFTs. Not only that, HyperMint will be the exclusive minting partner of the Alec Monopoly’s Rags to Richie NFT collection. Leading NFT art curator NFTGrails is also involved in the project.
About Alec Monopoly’s Rags to Richie NFT collection
The Rags to Richie collection consists of 10,000 unique NFTs with characteristics and backgrounds drawn by Monopoly. The NFTs provide utility; holders have the opportunity to engage in a play-to-earn NFT game, a metaverse club and a digital art gallery. In addition, holders gain access to in-person events and more than $1 million in prizes.
In addition to the NFT collection, Alec Monopoly has also partnered with JOYSTICK. Through this collaboration, Monopoly will create an immersive SandBox Club and Metaverse Art Gallery that showcases the Rags to Richie artworks. This includes plans to feature Monopoly performing a live DJ set in The Sandbox’s Rags to Richie space.
The HyperMint platform will support Monopoly’s focus on weaving utility into the creativity and dynamism of the collection. This is advantageous for artists such as Alec Monopoly, as HyperMint allows creators to own the intellectual property of their NFTs and scale their NFT collection without any additional problems.
