The Pinkfong Company, the global entertainment company behind the pop culture phenomenon “Baby Shark”, has announced a deeper dive into NFTs with the release of Baby Shark: Collection No. 2, a generative art collection of 10,000 unique NFTs featuring Baby Shark and his family, on digital collectibles marketplace MakersPlace.
With the world’s most viewed video in YouTube history, Pinkfong’s Baby Shark has grown into the most iconic earworm to emerge from the internet, recording a 20-week streak on the Billboard Hot 100 while its music video became the first video to hit 10 billion views on YouTube.
Baby Shark: Collection No. 2 is the latest in the company’s commitment to NFTs and Web3. Baby Shark’s initial NFT collection, Baby Shark: Collection No. 1, launched in December 2021, was an instant sell-out. Now, following their successful foray into the waters of NFTs, the company will release its second collection centered around strengthening and expanding the global Baby Shark community, both on and offline.
Pinkfong has joined forces with Nolcha Shows, the award winning events producers at the intersection of art, music and culture, to kick off celebrations for the upcoming Baby Shark NFT collection with an exclusive party during NFT.NYC. Expected to offer a night of fantastic entertainment, music and networking, Baby Shark Nite @ The Nolcha Shows: NFT Edition will take place on Monday June 20, featuring art from Baby Shark’s 1st NFT collection along with a teaser for the next collection.
With music serving as the pulse of Baby Shark, the company has plans to introduce a number of surprise remixes with notable musicians in the future. The project will also reward their community with unique perks, including special gifts and access to exclusive events and social activations (to view the roadmap in its entirety, click here).
“We’re incredibly excited to participate in and host our first offline title event at NFT.NYC as we lead up to the launch of our second NFT collection, Baby Shark: Collection No. 2. We will unveil a teaser of the collection for the first time during NFT.NYC and can’t wait to finally show our community what we’ve been working on,” says Bin Jeong, CEO of Pinkfong USA.
“Baby Shark has made its mark across generations and geographies,” says Craig Palmer, CEO of MakersPlace. “As early brand pioneers in the NFT space, they have displayed a true innovative spirit allowing for an even deeper appreciation and engagement from their massive fan base. It is an honour for MakersPlace to be a part of Baby Shark’s journey as they strengthen their impact both on and off the chain.”
Baby Shark: Collection No. 2 is set to launch on MakersPlace this summer. For more information, visit https://nft.babyshark.com/.
