Goo Goo Dolls NFT
The Goo Goo Dolls group is releasing “limited-edition, eco-friendly NFTs” for each city they visit on their summer tour, according to their announcement on Twitter. They added that digital collectibles will only be available during touring shows, so attendees should keep an eye out for QR codes to scan at venues.
Due to information taken from their album ‘Chaos in Bloom’. they will substitute the word “bloom” for the various cities on the tour. Each NFT will be an animated work of art that will transform to reveal further information regarding each show.
Despite what the band said about the NFTs only being available at the shows, the various NFTs can be seen and are available for purchase on the Fanaply platform currently for $25. The eco-responsible character comes from the blockchain on which they are hosted: Polygon. Blockchain has long been hailed for this eco-friendliness.
Unfortunately, some Goo Goo Dolls fans took to Twitter with some confusion. A Twitter user, @susanmfhorn, asked: “What does NFT mean?”. While another, @EmeraldLatias, angrily said, “There are no environmentally friendly NFTs. Whoever sold you this is lying between his teeth. Fanaply responded to the Tweet with what they are doing to protect the environment.
