Decentralized Exchange Aggregator 1inch is venturing into the world of NFT Animated Series. It has announced that it’s sponsoring and providing technical support to the multimedia “Take My Muffin” cartoon Series.
Basically, the cartoon style series narrates the story of a unicorn called Korney. He woke up one day after a car crash without any memories. Then, the series pokes fun at startups in a Silicon Valley-like setting.
According to the creators, the story is set in an “acid-trip version of Palo Alto.” To set the scene, they describe “robots live next door to dragons and walking potatoes, while investors pump their money into developing revolutionary products such as psychedelic boogers.” So expect some general wackiness and signature blockchain humor in the plotlines.
Based on the announcement, this is a long-term project for the partners. “The team is targeting a release date in the first half of 2022 on the 2×2 TV Broadcast network and PREMIER streaming service. The production plan includes three seasons of ten episodes each.”

“A partnership of this kind comes as no surprise,” said 1inch co-founder Anton Bukov. “Take My Muffin was financed by the crypto community from the very beginning. It’s actually the very first crypto-funded animated series.”
The firm Toonbox Studio funded the series with digital currency. It is located in Cyprus but has a team of writers, animators, actors, and producers all around the world. There are also the TMM NFT tokens that give users access to special features and TMM acts as a governance token as well.
“The plot of Take My Muffin entwines a variety of modern tech elements, including decentralized finance (DeFi) and other blockchain-based solutions,” comments Pavel Muntyan, the series’ producer. “Therefore, integration with leading companies in the crypto industry seems like a natural development.”
According to 1inch chief communications officer Sergey Maslennikov, Take My Muffin plans to integrate the exchange into the show’s plot, starting from the first episode. As a sponsor, the project will also help with merchandise and events for the series. Maslennikov added that “This partnership should help 1inch reach a broader general audience.”
NFT Animated Series
NFT Animated Series Projects are enjoying huge following and commercial success. For example, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s Stoner Cats raised $8 Million in under 35 minutes. The Drop was so successful that the transaction volume clogged Ethereum Network and led to a major spike in gas fees.
Top NFT Collectible DeadHeads just released the first episode of its animated series immortalizing the Collection. This is a community-driven entertainment project. That means that being an NFT holder and owning a 1/1 DeadHeads character technically makes NFT holders an author of the animated series.
Then, Fox Broadcasting Company has also teamed up with the creator of Rick and Morty to develop an animated series “curated entirely on the Blockchain.” Further, Fox teamed up with Bento Box and launched a $100 million NFT creator fund.
