Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, have become overwhelmingly popular throughout 2021, and it’s expected that the popularity of these digital assets will continue to grow tremendously in 2022. If the trend of big names getting into the craze is any hint, those expectations are likely to come to fruition.
Talking about big names diving into NFTs, yet another announced an entrance today. Ozzy Osbourne, the former lead singer of Black Sabbath who is famous for biting the head off of a bat during a concert in 1982, said he would be launching an NFT collection of his own.
Here’s what’s going on:
Ozzy Osbourne to Launch NFTs
As mentioned above, Ozzy Osbourne is the next big name that’s announced an entrance into the NFT industry. According to various reports, including a Tweet posted by Ozzy himself, the collection will be made up of 9,666 unique NFT bats. Of course, the bats are a node to the famous event when Osbourne bit the head off of one of these flying creatures.
That’s because these NFTs come with something very unique. Each Cryptobat has a feature that will allow collectors to essentially breed them to create another NFT. Collectors can birth additional NFTs by allowing their CryptoBatz to “bite” and mutate with another NFT from their digital wallet, creating a new, unique token.
Interestingly, this process doesn’t have to happen with two CryptoBatz, these NFTs have the ability to bite and mutate with any other NFT in your wallet, giving you the ability to create a unique NFT by combining the attributes of two collectibles from completely different projects.
Think about it, if you’re a Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, SupDucks, or Lazy Lions collector, and you get your hands on a CryptoBat, you’ll be able to mutate your Ape, Punk, Duck, or Lion of your choice.
According to various reports, pre-sales are available now through the CryptoBatz Discord channel. Through the channel, you’ll also be able to get one of 2,500 guaranteed CryptoBat presale whitelist passes.
If You Want a CryptoBat, Act Quickly
If you plan on getting your hand on a piece in Ozzy’s collection, you’ll need to act quickly. The CryptoBatz Discord Channel is already becoming overwhelmingly popular, which suggests that when this collection is released, it will be snapped up quite quickly.
Past collections that experienced such enthusiasm among the community early on sold out in a matter of hours, if not minutes, and many believe that this collection will be no different. So, you’ll want to pre-order your collectible, and if you miss out on the ability to do so, be ready to act fast on the date of the launch.
Why Is Ozzy Osbourne Launching NFTs?
NFTs are quickly becoming engrained in the music and entertainment industries, and for good reason. These collectibles give fans a new way to show their support for their favorite entertainers while giving those entertainers a new way to communicate with their fanbase.
Considering the fact that Ozzy has a long history of using any channel possible to show his fans that he appreciates them, it only makes sense that he would be diving into the industry.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line here is that Ozzy Osbourne is the next in a long line of celebrities diving into the NFT industry. As this trend continues, further adoption among consumers will likely continue, leading to significant growth in the industry.
