Ozzy Makes NFTs Now
Ozzy Osbourne has announced the ‘Cryptobatz’ collection, his first foray into the world of NFTs.
The series of NFTs, which will arrive in January, are centered around the infamous 1982 incident in which Ozzy bit the head off a bat during a performance in Des Moines, IA. The Prince of Darkness will unveil 9,666 totally unique NFT bats, created in conjunction with Sutter Systems.
Each Cryptobat will give collectors a unique opportunity to birth an additional NFT by activating a feature which will allow their purchase to ‘bite’ and mutate with another NFT from their digital wallet, resulting in ‘MutantBatz.’
The NFT series will also see the launch of AncientBatz, a treasure hunt that will enable CryptoBatz holders to find new Batz around the globe in hidden locations. Each AncientBat will subsequently be able to bite up to 100 times, unlike their CryptoBatz cousins which can only bite once.
Ozzy explained the genesis of his own NFT series after he attempted to acquire a Bored Ape NFT, saying:
“I’ve been trying to get in on the NFT action for a while so when I asked Sharon for a Bored Ape for Christmas after several failed attempts of buying my own, and she said no, so I decided to create my own,” said Ozzy.
“CryptoBatz is a fucking mental project for NFT collectors and fans. The design pays tribute to one of my most iconic on-stage moments and is a chance to acquire a rare piece of art history. I love it!”
A pre-sale for the project is now open through the CryptoBatz discord channel.
