Fantico, a digitally licensed collectibles platform, announced on January 12, 2022 that it will be putting up a digital collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which features several collectibles on well-known personalities across genres. Collectors can also buy them using Ethereum (ETH) crypto token.

NFTs are digital assets that use the blockchain to document the ownership of items such as images, videos, and other collectables.

Abhayanand Singh, group CEO and co-founder of Vistas Media Capital, said, “With this first of a kind NFT launch on our platform, which merges the physical and the digital world, we hope that we can bring in a new method of monetization for such creations. We are happy to add Bollywood celebrity-centric collectibles on our platform.”
