The late King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, has been immortalized in a new way with the release of 3,000 non-fungible tokens on The Sandbox metaverse.
On August 9, this unique collection was released to celebrate the legacy of one of the most famous musicians in history.
The exclusive NFTs offer a unique chance for Presley fans, as well as for those following the latest NFT news, to celebrate his impressive career. Each piece in the collection is meant to pay tribute to some of Elvis’ most iconic looks and moments – from his signature side-swept hair and timeless style to his dynamic performances on stage.
The integration of the “King of Rock and Roll” into the blockchain is driven by The Elvis Presley Legacy Council, with the aim of introducing a new generation of artists to the iconic figure of rock and roll.
According to the Elvis Presley Legacy Council, the future and direction of the Elvis Presley Digital Estate should be shaped by those who are passionate about his music.
The digital collectables were minted on the Polygon blockchain, and the first sales were held exclusively for The Sandbox users on August 9, in which buyers who follow the latest NFT news had 24 hours to purchase an NFT for 100 SAND or $41 each.
By purchasing an NFT, fans also earned a place in the Elvis Legacy Council DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization committed to preserving the King of Rock and Roll’s musical heritage on Web3. Members of this DAO are able to participate in voting and governance decisions that will shape future projects related to Elvis’ legacy.
