Back in September of 2021, Forbes reported that the newest season of The Walking Dead was the most in-demand show on the planet. The show has struggled with less favorable reviews for its more recent seasons, but that hasn’t stopped fans from loyally tuning in each week. As we approach the end of this stunning journey, the show’s producers are attempting to cash in its popularity by releasing exclusive NFTs. Here’s how you can get your hands on one of these rare non-fungible tokens:
When is the NFT Collection Dropping?
This Walking Dead themed NFT collection is set to drop on February 20th, and these tokens will hit the market alongside the expanded final season of the show. At 1 PM Eastern Time, you can purchase your NFTs via Orange Comet. Just don’t forget to save enough money for snacks for later that night, because At 9 PM Eastern Time, part two of the three-part finale will air on AMC. It’s a moment that Walking Dead fans have been waiting for with mixed feelings. On the one hand, the finale is set to be a spectacular experience. On the other hand, fans are obviously disappointed that the journey will finally come to an end.
How Many Walking Dead NFTs Are Being Released?
A total of 10,000 NFTs will be released, although only a portion will hit the market on February 20th. The others will be available at a later date – presumably coinciding with the third and final installment of the finale. In addition to 10,000 generative art pieces, 750 “original animations” inspired by iconic scenes from The Walking Dead will hit the market. These will likely be among the most popular TWD NFTs, as investors seem to display a preference for animated variants these days. Finally, you can grab a “Walker Access Pass” from Orange Comet, and this will give you exclusive access to rare NFT drops throughout the coming year. However, these special passes will only be available for 24 hours before they’re gone forever.
How Much Will Walking Dead NFTs Cost?
These NFTs are actually quite affordable, and each of the 10,000 generative art pieces will cost you $50. If you’d like to grab one of the 750 original animations, you’ll need to shell out $250 for each one. The Walker Access Pass is actually the most expensive product set to hit the market with a price tag of $311. True fans will obviously understand the significance of the number “311.”
Are They Worth It?
Considering the popularity of The Walking Dead, these products could be a fun way for fans to get into the NFT market. They’re also much cheaper than many of the other NFTs we’ve seen as of late, especially considering that seven-figure price tags are fairly standard. If you’re looking for an interesting digital collectible to commemorate the end of an unforgettable TV series, these NFTs could be well worth the $50.
