Man Vs Machine: Ice Cube's First Ever NFT Drop Is Extraordinary Success
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, actor, entertainment mogul and BIG3 founder Ice Cube announced that his exclusive first ever NFT drop, Man VS Machine has closed with every edition sold out in less than 24 hours. The drop, a partnership with acclaimed artist Trevor Jones and NFT Marketplace Nifty Gateway, was one of the most successful in the platform's history, grossing more than $1.6 Million. There was tremendous interest for all editions, with entries for each reaching remarkable levels.
"This drop has been an overwhelming success," said Ice Cube. "The incredible demand and appreciation of these pieces just validates that waiting and producing something that is an accessibly priced true work of art was the right choice. In a market that is so overly saturated by celebrities using NFT's as just another way to profit off of their fame, I am proud to have contributed meaningfully to the NFT community alongside Trevor."
"I have never been prouder of the artwork created for a drop as I am with Man VS Machine," said Trevor Jones. "I was blown away by the level of demand, which hasn't been seen since the height of the NFT craze. It was such a privilege to work with Ice Cube and to be involved in this creative prcess that developed over the better part of a year. I'm certain this will forever be seen as an epic collaboration and one of the most important NFT drops of 2021."
This NFT drop is part of Ice Cube's larger effort to continue to be present in all issues and industries that are culturally relevant today. From encouraging representation in the film industry, growing the BIG3 basketball league, and being an active participant in the metaverse, Ice Cube continues to be a leader across industries.
The NFT's from Man vs Machine will continue to live on the Nifty Gateway platform and individual owners can be approached for resale. The editions in the secondary market have already appreciated by four- or five-fold and sold an additional $1 Million.
