Currently, non-replaceable tokens (NFTs) are permeating the film industry. YouTube reported on the 14th (local time).
Deadline reported that famous American filmmaker and comic book writer Kevin Smith is releasing an upcoming comedy horror film’Killroy Was Here’ on the NFT on the newly launched Jay & Silent Bob’s crypto studio market.
The film, based on graffiti with a man with a bald long nose, which became popular during World War II, was originally scheduled for theater release in 2020, but was postponed to 2021.
Now being auctioned by the NFT, anyone who buys “Killroy Was Here” will own its distribution rights. According to Smith, the owner could also keep the film alone as an exclusive purchase.
“We’re not trying to raise money by selling Killroy films on the NFT. The completed Killroy movie is NFT. If this works, there will be a new stage for artists who are better than me to tell our story.”
The first NFT drop will also include platinum tokens that can appear as a cameo on “Clark III”.

Known for films such as “Chasing Amy”, “Dogma”, “Cop Out” and “Tusk”, Smith is the first in the industry to sell his work on NFT. However, “Killroy Was Here” won’t make history.
Last month, Trevor Hawkins’ independent film Rotawana became the first film to be auctioned off the NFT.
An Oscar-nominated documentary about French filmmaker Claude Landsmann was also sold in digital tokens in March.
(Non-fungible tokens are now permeating the movie industry.)
