C is for Crypto, that’s ok for me…

From Selection:

Sesame Workshop is introducing the primary digital collectibles primarily based on the long-lasting Sesame Avenue youngsters’ model. The primary NFTs from the initiative will function Cookie Monster, the beloved blue cookie fiend from the present, with the preliminary drop scheduled for March 19 on the VeVe digital collectibles app.

There might be one Cookie Monster NFT collectible with 5,555 editions on the market, priced at $60 every. In line with Sesame Workshop, further Sesame Avenue collectibles might be launched later this yr.

I’ve questions. Like, why Cookie Monster? I really feel like Elmo is your most blatant wager, adopted by Grover and Huge Fowl (relying in your audience). Additionally, I believed that complete world had just about agreed by now that NFTs have been a joke, as the entire buyers who saved the idea afloat have since turned their consideration in direction of AI? (And truthfully, an interactive Smarty ChatBot for teenagers wouldn’t be the worst concept.) And eventually … WHY? Is that this simply the inevitable consequence of HBO’s VC-inspired IP-snag of the Sesame Avenue rights? Is it actually that arduous to take advantage of income out of a 50-year-old public entry TV present?
