Blockchain Creative Labs (BCL), FOX Entertainment’s Web3 media and creative technology company, and Dan Harmon, creator and executive producer of FOX’s upcoming animated comedy Krapopolis, are unveiling the ‘Key to Krapopolis,’ which will allow owners of the series’ dedicated NFTs, Krap Chickens, to appear in the program as a background character during its Season 1 finale.
Only two Key to Krapopolis NFTs will be added to two existing Krap Chicken NFTs, effectively making them the two rarest NFTs in the collection. The Key will appear as a second image on each of the upgraded NFTs in a carousel. Once the episode airs, the illustrated image of the holder’s head as it was included in the show will be added to each NFT to create a uniquely krap-tastic profile picture.
One Key will be granted to a current Krap Chicken holder who must enter and win a scavenger hunt beginning on December 7. The first entrant to answer a series of Krapopolis-themed, multiple choice questions correctly will win a Key to Krapopolis. Each Krap Chicken in the collection represents one entry to the scavenger hunt, meaning the more chickens an individual owns, the more chances they have to compete to win the prize.
The other Key has been added to a Krap Chicken from BCL’s treasury, which is on auction to the public on OpenSea from November 27 through December 4.
“Unlike, say, a concert ticket, which has one-time use, we want our Krap Chickens to grant additional perks to fans over time,” said Scott Greenberg, CEO of BCL. “When we first announced the Krap Chickens, we offered several features, including early-access to screenings and meet-and-greets with the cast and crew. But the Key to Krapopolis proves that utility in Web3 can be eternal and only scratches the surface of what’s possible in fan engagement.”
Featuring the voices of Emmy Award winner Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd), Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows), Pam Murphy (Mapleworth Murders) and Duncan Trussell (The Midnight Gospel), Krapopolis is billed as network television’s first animated comedy to be curated on the blockchain. Set in mythical ancient Greece, the comedy tells the story of a dysfunctional family of humans, gods and monsters that try their hand at running the world’s first cities — without trying to kill each other.
Premiering in 2023 and already renewed for a second season, Krapopolis is produced by FOX Entertainment’s Emmy-winning animation studio, Bento Box Entertainment.
Writer, producer, creator and actor Dan Harmon is the Emmy-winning creator/executive producer of the comedy series Community and the co-creator/executive producer of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty, which premiered in December of 2013 and quickly became a ratings hit, breaking records as the #1 comedy in key demos and garnering consecutive Emmy wins for Outstanding Animated Program. In 2018, Adult Swim renewed the series for 70 new episodes. He also executive produced the Oscar-nominated animated feature film Anomalisa.
Harmon’s recent projects include Little Demon, which premiered this summer on FXX, the upcoming Strange Planet series (Apple TV+) and the latest season of Rick and Morty.
