Tim Stokely, the founder of OnlyFans, is entering the web3 game with Zoop, a new NFT firm that will launch this summer.
People may purchase, sell, and trade 3D NFT “playing cards” of their favorite influencers and celebrities on Zoop. According to the company, the limited-edition digital cards on Zoop will be officially licensed, however it was unclear whether the celebrities themselves would be actively engaged in their development.
In its announcement, Zoop stated that the platform will create “a deeper relationship between fan and influencer.” As is common in today’s entertainment NFTs, the cards will provide users with specific benefits like as exclusive airdrops and access to communities that share their interests.
OnlyFans has a wide network of adult content suppliers and enthusiasts. Corinna Kopf, for example, earns up to $1 million per month. Even after the Corinna Kopf OnlyFans leaks, she is still making a lot of money.
Stokely will co-CEO the firm with RJ Phillips, another former OnlyFans executive who joined Zoop this summer. According to the company, they selected to launch Zoop on the Polygon blockchain due to its low transaction costs and sustainability in compared to other chains.
According to Phillips, Zoop intends to distribute 500 cards each influencer for its initial drops and has long-term intentions to develop its own coin. In contrast to OnlyFans, which decided to continue allowing NSFW content after authors on the site fought back against its proposal to eliminate porn in 2021, he emphasized that the network would be “family safe.”
The OnlyFans platform is experimenting with NFTs as well. It was testing an NFT profile image function earlier this year, according to TechCrunch.
OnlyFans CEO Ami Gan said of the profile image change in February, “This functionality is the first step in investigating the role that NFTs can play on our platform.”
