Hip-Hop Meets NFTs as BUA and Supermojo Partner for The MC Collection
Artist and entrepreneur Justin BUA's The BUA Lab has partnered with Supermojo to launch The MC, a digital art collection of 1,000 unique characters on the XRP Ledger, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop and marking the beginning of the BUAverse.
- The MC collection will go on sale March 16 at 1 p.m. ET on buaverse.com.
- The collection is a series of 1,000 uniquely designed characters, plus 11 golden tickets that are derivatives of BUA's famous painting, "The MC."
- Supermojo is the technology platform behind the launch of the collection, designed to make digital assets more accessible for everyone.
- The BUAverse will be a metaverse in which the NFTs function as an access pass to this digital world created by BUA, giving NFT holders the chance to receive a physical sculpture of NFTs, plus other digital and real-world perks.
- The XRPL is championed for its long-standing reliability, low-cost, instant settlement, and built-in royalty structures for NFTs, making it the blockchain of choice for Bua NFTs and the BUAverse.
❗Why It Matters
This partnership highlights the potential for NFTs to empower artists to not just survive, but thrive with their digital art. The BUAverse offers an education necessary to make these new art forms tangible. It also marks one of the biggest announcements for XRPL in its short NFT history.
