Will Showcase Crypto Pill NFTs from Micha Klein to Promote New Features
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 4, 2022 / Zedge, Inc. (NYSE American:ZDGE), a leader in building marketplaces and games around digital content that enable self-expression, today announced that version 2.0 of ‘NFTs Made Easy’ will go live on Monday August 8, 2022 in conjunction with Micha Klein, the 2021 NYC Digital NFT Artist of the Year.
“I’m excited for Zedge to partner with the creator of the Crypto Pills NFTs collection, Micha Klein, in introducing the next phase of Zedge’s ‘NFTs Made Easy’ offering,” said Jonathan Reich, CEO of Zedge. “Artists can now sell limited and numbered editions of up to 100 of their original NFTs. This allows for broader ownership and enables each NFT to retain its value over time. In addition, we are also allowing artists to mint static wallpapers which is particularly exciting in light of the potential to expand our artist community and make our marketplace accessible to GuruShots’ players.”
“I’m thrilled to be working with Zedge to distribute my art,” said Micha Klein. “Their approach makes the NFTs offered on their platform accessible to fans who might have been priced out of auctions on other sites, and I love the idea of democratizing access to my creations.”
Klein’s new and unique Genesis Animated Crypto Pill NFT will drop on Monday August 8, 2022. It will be available exclusively for purchase in Zedge Premium, with more drops to follow.
Tim Quirk, Zedge’s SVP of Product commented, “‘NFTs Made Easy’ is a valuable utility crafted for the masses, that takes the complexity out of creating, selling and buying NFTs while enabling easily verifiable provenance and limited editions through a simple, eco-friendly, cryptocurrency-free experience. As our offering matures, we see further opportunities to grow and support our artists with new capabilities while attracting buyers by evolving into a complete NFT ecosystem. Over the next several quarters, our roadmap includes introducing additional forms of content, audio support for video wallpaper NFTs, auctions and drop dates.”
Zedge builds marketplaces and games around digital content that people use to express themselves. We monetize our user base through advertising, subscriptions, and a virtual token-based economy.
