From CryptoKitties to the NBA,
Dapper Labs has paved the way
for blockchain popularity
beyond speculation that's purely monetary
and now with Dr. Seuss Enterprises
another collectible application arises.
Featuring the Lorax, Thing One and Thing Two
The Cat in the Hat and Horton too,
fans of Dr. Seuss can collect
characters who in retrospect
may prove to be more valuable
than almost any other collectible.
“As the world moves increasingly online, so has consumers’ desire for discovering and collecting digital memorabilia that brings them one step closer to their favorite athletes, musicians and iconic characters,” said Roham Gharegozlou, the chief executive and founder of Dapper Labs, in a statement. “With our new Dr. Seuss digital decal experience, we are marrying the best of both worlds - allowing fans to interact and discover something entirely new, while tapping into our collective nostalgia for the characters that mean so much from our childhood. We are thrilled to be working alongside Dr. Seuss Enterprises to launch this first of its kind endeavour that is bound to bring joy to Dr. Seuss fans around the globe.”
In September, Dapper Labs raised $11 million in financing from a slew of investors, including Andreessen Horowitz's crypto fund, with participation from investors including Accomplice, AppWorks, Autonomous Partners, Fenbushi Digital and Warner Music Group.
That who's who of investors are buying in to the underlying platform Dapper developed called "Flow," a specialized blockchain designed for the entertainment industry, according to Gharegozlou.
