The new drama series launch will reportedly incorporate important individuals in the crypto sector, interactive features from video games, as well as fictional scenarios from the cryptocurrency world.
A production and investment company is developing a nonfungible token drama series about a race between Hong Kongers and Americans to build a digital currency.
According to a report published by Variety on Sunday, the AMM Global production business will produce a 12-episode series called Crypto Keepers, which will air next year.
The drama, which will purportedly be published using nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, will feature important individuals in the crypto sector as well as fictional scenarios centred on persons interested in establishing “the next Bitcoin-like digital currency.”
Both English and Cantonese speakers will be featured in the series, which will be shot in a range of countries. Despite the fact that Crypto Keepers is a work of fiction, the show will incorporate key crypto events as they relate to the plot.
“Crypto Keepers is part of our strategy to tell international, topical stories that bridge the gap between the East and West in a trailblazing manner,” said AMM’s executive director Bizhan Tong.
According to Tong, the NFT series would have interactive aspects similar to those found in video games, allowing viewers to gather scenes, characters, and props from the plot after it has aired.
The series will be developed as an NFT by Hong Kong-based blockchain business CryptoBLK, with investment management firm YG Capital, Phoenix Waters Productions, and AMM providing funding.
Despite the fact that the series will be one of the first NFT crypto-themed dramas to be set in Asia, at least one Hollywood production firm has jumped on the bandwagon to make a crypto-comedy series called Hold on for Dear Life, which is due to begin filming in August.
In October, a drama series dubbed Romantic Hacker launched in South Korea, focusing on crypto and blockchain subjects with a romantic twist.
