Since 2021, Coinbase has been teasing its own NFT platform. In fact, the exchange has been taking so long to launch it that it’s almost become a meme among the crypto community.
Nonetheless, Coinbase is seemingly making headwind. On Wednesday, Coinbase NFT’s Twitter page shared an image of Deadfellaz‘s logo with the caption: “Time to say hello to the horde. What’s happening, @Deadfellaz?”
Deadfellaz retweeted the Coinbase post saying: “Officially announcing @Deadfellaz as launch partners for @Coinbase_NFT”
The announcement has revived talks of the Coinbase NFT project due to Deadfellaz’s reputation in the crypto market.
Launched last year, Deadfellaz has an impressive roster of NFT holders including Reese Witherspoon, Lionel Richie, Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis and Alexis Ohanian. Its 10,000 NFTs of zombie characters has a market cap of US$38 million, amassing US$80 million in sales.
What’s more, Deadfellaz also signed a deal with United Talent Agency (UTA) – a global talent agency that represents professionals across the entertainment industry.
Deadfellaz is also praised to be a female-led project with co-founder “Betty” expressing excitement about the UTA partnership. “Very bullish on the future,” she tweeted.
The partnership with Coinbase could accelerate the exchange’s NFT platform, meaning the crypto community could be finally seeing the elusive project come into fruition soon.
