Discussing Ice Cube’s NFT collection
Man VS Machine is a series of Trevor’s paintings. The artist animates his traditional artworks using new technologies. Since 2017, he’s more focused on cryptocurrency and crypto art.
Overall, the NFT collection included four major editions with different prices. These are :
- 12 Gold Edition NFT’s sold at $15,000 each
- 14 Silver Edition NFT’s sold at $5,000 each
- 100 Bronze Edition NFT’s sold at $2,000 each
- Lastly, the 12,000 Open Edition NFTs were available only to Trevor’s artwork holders
This successful series accomplishes Ice Cube’s effort to be part of all grossing industries. Being an actor, BIG3’s basketball player and now a metaverse participant, he clearly holds multiple talents.
Talking about the launch, Ice Cube’s NFT collection made more than $1.6 Million. Moreover, in secondary markets many are already fetching four or five times the original price.
Nifty Gateway is still going strong
Nifty Gateway is an NFT marketplace that backs many notable artists, such as Pak, Beeple and Mad Dog Jones. Apparently, they plan to convert at least one billion people into NFT owners. With Ice Cube’s collection, they received more than 400 entries on each Edition.
