Hot Wheels Manufacturer Mattel Chooses Flow Blockchain for Dedicated NFT Platform
Toy giant Mattel announced the debut of NFTs on a specialized platform called “Mattel Creations.” Through a press release, Mattel detailed their unique platform ambitions, which are anticipated to be led by the newest collections of Hot Wheels NFTs.
Hot Wheels NFTs is among the most popular NFT initiatives to exist on the WAX blockchain. However once Mattel Creations fully opens its NFT services (expected in early next year), WAX blockchain will not be Mattel and Hot Wheels NFTs’ blockchain of preference. The flagship toy is moving forward with its fourth collection of NFT collections, and the roll out of its platform is a bullish indicator for NFT enthusiasts, indicating a continuous and strong interest in NFTs for the toy company, which speaks very well blockchain-based collections in the future.
In the meanwhile, Mattel Creations has already begun, but without NFT assistance. Creations re – creates the concept of “toys as art,” which will remain to be supplemented by digital items. Earlier, Hot Wheels NFTs were commonly offered in bundles for $25 that included a ticket for an actual Hot Wheels vehicle, and they sold out rapidly. Creations also features a multitude of the toymaker’s culture-first partnerships, which will be ideal for NFT participation.
As popular as Hot Wheels offerings have always been, anticipate further intellectual property from the traditional toy brand to enter their NFT arena. The most obvious possibility is Barbie, who has already had an NFT launch as a portion of a partnership with Balmain.
Mattel may have scored a shot when it pertains to the introduction of NFT strategies among businesses. As per statistics from WAXMarketCap and CryptoSlam, Mattel’s Hot Wheels launches have been a success, generating over $5 million in NFT sales more than 20,000 users. Furthermore , Hot Wheels has maintained its importance on the blockchain and continues to rank in the top three in terms of transaction volume over the previous 30 days on WAX. Moving Mattel to a dedicated platform on Flow blockchain will be a significant success for both companies.
