Webtoon Silent Horror to have NFTs of their favourite characters minted
Vividthree Holdings Ltd, a listed company in Singapore (SGX: OMK), is releasing their first non-fungible-token (NFT) this month, from digital collectibles derived from the characters of the webcomic “Silent Horror“. They had previously paid S$1.5M to obtain the IP rights to the webtoon “Silent Horror” in early 2020.
The digital art will be available for purchase in January 2022 on Opensea.io, a crypto collectibles and NFT marketplace, with information on the pricing and quantities to be released nearer to the launch date.
Proceeds from the sale will fund further development of ‘Silent Horror’ including potential spin-offs. The horror webcomic has garnered over 100 million views since February 2015.

“The NFT sale also marks a monumental moment for the Group as we tap into the limitless opportunity of blockchain to accelerate the execution of our growth plans.”
