The Wolf of Wall Street film to launch NFT offering, powered by Aventus

April 19, 2023 in Parachains, Product, Technology

To celebrate the film’s 10-year anniversary, Aventus has partnered with The Wolf of Wall Street’s rights holders to produce historical collection of NFTs

Aventus, a Web3 solutions provider for enterprises, has partnered with the film rights holders for The Wolf of Wall Street and world-leading film producers and editors to create The Wolf of Wall Street Experience: a series of NFT drops which will also act as a key to unlock wider parts of the experience.

With worldwide box office receipts of almost $400M, five Oscar nominations including Best Picture, and a Guinness World Records entry for most swearing in a film, The Wolf of Wall Street’s impact on popular culture remains steadfast almost a decade after its release, with memes of the film continuing to generate millions of uses.

The Wolf of Wall Street Experience will give fans of the film and Web3 enthusiasts access to exclusive content, rewards, and experiences via a series of limited NFT drops, including never-before-seen scenes from the making of the film, unlockable content, experiences, and limited access to an invite-only event to celebrate the anniversary of the film.

The launch is scheduled for the second quarter of 2023, with additional benefits for early participants of the community.

The NFTs will be created by the carbon-neutral Aventus Network, a blockchain built on Polkadot – meaning the project will leverage the full benefits of the Polkadot ecosystem, including enhanced scalability, speed, and security. NFT holders will be able to leverage the full benefits of interoperability across Polkadot’s connected ecosystem of nearly 50 blockchains and growing, including Ethereum.

Alan Vey, Founder & CEO at Aventus, commented: “The Wolf of Wall Street is one of the most iconic films across not only popular culture more broadly, but specifically within the blockchain community. We’re thrilled to be able to bring this film to Web3 and to be a part of a historic moment for the industry as blockbuster becomes the latest sector to realise the benefits of NFTs in community building and engagement.”

Gavin Wood, founder of Polkadot & cofounder of Ethereum, added: “It’s exciting to see Aventus leverage Polkadot’s unmatched scalability, security and interoperability for such an interactive and entertaining use case. This offering is a great way to demonstrate the enhanced functionality Polkadot offers next-generation NFT projects while also generating a bit of fun and tapping into the meme culture surrounding this iconic film."
