Animated Series Created by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Sparks New NFT Hype
The cryptocurrency community and mainstream news publications have been discussing a new NFT project bolstered by Mila Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher called “Stoner Cats.” The duo has teamed up with popular celebrities such as Chris Rock, Jane Fonda, and the “Family Guy’s” Seth MacFarlane. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin will be joining the animated series as well playing the character called “Lord Catsington.”
Essentially the show is about an older woman called “Ms. Stoner” who lives with a number of mischievous cats. Ms. Stoner has Alzheimer’s Disease and decides to partake in using medical marijuana for her ailments. However, as soon as the elderly woman fish bowls the house, her cats get high and they start talking to each other.
The “Stoner Cats” website shows a small clip of Ms. Stoner and her cats, which gives viewers some perspective of the upcoming show. But not just anyone can watch the new show, as the series will only be available to NFT holders, which sold out on Tuesday. The sale of over 10,000 NFTs sold out in less than 35 minutes as each card sold at 0.35 ETH a pop (over $800). The sale raised a total of $8.4 million and NFTs can also be sold on secondary markets. The animated series web portal explains in great detail what the show will entail.
“Stoner Cats is an adult animated short series centered on five house cats who mysteriously become sentient,” the site details. “With their *higher* consciousness, they realize that their beloved owner, Ms. Stoner, needs rescue from a myriad of dangerous situations. With great *flower* comes great responsibility.”
Ms. Stoner NFT Owner Wants $81 Million for the Blockchain-Based Card
With token cards on secondary markets like Opensea, the NFTs command a significant premium compared to the initial $800 investment. The “Ms. Stoner” NFT recently sold for 30 ETH ($69.7K) and the current owner wants 35,000 ETH or $81 million for the single NFT.
From the looks of secondary price tags, crypto fans believe the Mila Kunis’ NFT collectibles will be more valuable in the future. Moreover, Stoner Cat NFT creators will get 2.5% on every sale that follows the original.
“Stoner Cats NFTs will act as lifetime passes that unlock all future content released,” the web page emphasizes.
While the Stoner Cats project saw a lot of action during the sales, research provided by Dune Analytics indicates that close to $800K in ethereum (ETH) was spent on the 35 minutes worth of Stoner Cat NFT purchasing madness.
