May the 4th be with you: StarColl debuts Star Wars NFT collection
StarColl, an NFT marketplace and collection exclusively dedicated to one of the largest private Star Wars memorabilia collection is set to list digital twins of its catalog.
According to an announcement on Tuesday, early registration will begin on May 4 — “Star Wars Day.”
The Star Wars collection will feature over 800 limited edition collectibles from the iconic sci-fi movie franchise released as NFTs on the StarColl marketplace.
Each StarColl NFT is a digital twin of an actual physical item from the massive Star Wars collection. Owners of each NFT will also reportedly have the chance to include their names in the NFT metadata which will appear in all future StarColl traveling exhibitions.
Ownership of NFTs from the listing will also grant free lifetime passes to the StarColl global traveling exhibition.
The announcement also revealed that all metadata and ownership information is secured on the QAN blockchain platform — a decentralized network that is reportedly resistant to quantum search algorithm attack vectors.
Commenting on the robust security of the StarColl NFT collection, Johann Polecsak, chief technology officer at QANplatform said:
“NFT security is a neglected topic today. Nobody speaks about cybersecurity issues and pain points behind the NFT ecosystem. Source files of NFTs sold for thousands of dollars can be easily changed to memes by hackers. StarColl NFTs will be secured by the Quantum-resistant QAN blockchain, where metadata and ownership information is stored.”
NFTs based on pop culture references are quite common with artists and creators minting digital twins based on popular movies, songs, and other works of art.
Back in March, decentralized movie financing platform Mogul Productions announced plans to release NFTs in collaboration with comic book artist Rob Prior.
Celebrity NFTs are also becoming a regular occurrence at the intersection of blockchain art and pop culture. As previously reported by Cointelegraph, the likes of skateboarding legend Tony Hawk and rap-rock icon Mike Shinoda have also released their own NFTs.
