Latest Adam Bomb Squad News
Adam Bomb Squad co-creator and The Hundreds co-founder Bobby Kim, aka Bobby Hundreds, has signed with United Talent Agency (UTA) to expand his business and web3 ventures according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.
🔙 Back It Up
Bobby discovered NFTs in 2020 and created the Adam Bomb Squad project in Aug. 2021 as a way for the Hundreds community to participate in the brand. Buoyed by its ties to streetwear brand The Hundreds, the collection minted out 25,000 NFTs in less than an hour.
❗ Why It Matters
This partnership will help Bobby expand his business across screenwriting, film and television producing, speaking engagements and publishing, "beyond traditional boundaries and defined mediums." This development also follows in the footsteps of the news of PROOF Collective signing with UTA last month.
🔜 What’s Next?
"Are NFTs truly the future of creativity? Or just a fad? Are they a scam? Maybe they are all those things."
Bobby will dig into these questions in his upcoming book NFTs Are a Scam / NFTs Are the Future, which will be released in May.
Adam Bomb Squad tweeted that the early access for The Hundreds collaboration with Pokemon will start tomorrow morning.

Adam Bomb Squad is delaying the reveal of the recently minted 'Badam Bomb Squad' NFT companion collection, the project announced on Wednesday.
As such, reveal will need to be delayed until airdrops are complete. We will keep you updated throughout this process and provide an updated reveal date/time as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support! 💣🙏 (3/3)— Adam Bomb Squad (@AdamBombSquad) November 23, 2022
The team has been manually airdropping Badams to 'ensure proper distribution', with the team urging patience to users who had yet to receive their companion. 1,113 of the 5,000 NFTs are being airdropped to holders of Adam Bombs with specific 'Badam' traits, while the rest of the supply was minted via an allowlist of ABS holders, The Hundreds collaborators, and partner communities.
The reveal was initially scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Badams currently hold a 0.197 ETH floor price ahead of the reveal.
Adam Bomb Squad took a snapshot of all holders and multiple partner communities at 6:00 p.m. ET, according to an announcement from the project.
The snapshot will provide a priority waitlist for all holders from a variety of existing NFT collections, including but not limited to CryptoPunks, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Cool Cats, Deadfellaz, and Degen Toonz.
The newly waitlisted individuals will have the opportunity to mint one of the upcoming Badam Bomb Squad NFTs, which are slated to unlock for waitlisted parties at 3:00 p.m. ET. Only existing Adam Bomb Squad holders will have an opportunity to mint Badam Bomb Squad NFTs prior to the waitlisted parties. Any waitlisted party can mint one Badam Bomb Squad NFT for 0.25 ETH on AdamBombSquad.com.
Only 5,000 Badam Bomb Squad NFTs will be released and the art reveal will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 6:00 p.m. ET.

Adam Bomb Squad is moving the drop of its second collection, Badam Bomb Squad, off OpenSea and to its own site in response to OpenSea's lack of alacrity concerning creator royalties, the project said late Tuesday evening.
"We were waiting to see if OpenSea would take a stand to preserve creator royalties for existing collections," the project tweeted. "...Unfortunately, that announcement has not arrived in time."
Badam Bomb Squad was set to start minting its 5,000-edition collection likely through OpenSea's new SeaDrop protocol on Nov. 10 at a price of 0.25 ETH with certain Adam Bomb Squad holders getting airdrops and certain communities (such as CryptoPunks, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Smilesss, Cool Cats, among others) getting early access.
Now the collection is delayed until the project sets up a mint on its site.
OpenSea made an announcement Nov. 5 that it would be taking steps to enforce creator royalties, letting creators of new collections (those started after Nov. 8 at noon ET) use an "on-chain enforcement tool" in their contracts. OpenSea also said it would not be making any changes to enforce existing projects' royalties until Dec. 8, if at all — a delay Adam Bomb Squad took umbrage with.
"We hope this statement adds pressure to all of the marketplaces to uphold the Web3 ethos. But most of all, may it be a reminder to them, to you, and the world that the artists are always in control," the project said.
Badam recently hacked the Adam Bomb Squad's social media accounts. During the hack, Badam stole an Adam Bomb Squad NFT from the collection's vault account.
Over the next two weeks, Badam is asking the Adam Bomb Squad community to help share his story. There will be challenges starting October 25 that will reveal interesting facts about Badam’s history and the upcoming Badam Bomb Squad collection. Quizzes and other games will be played in the Discord server.
Anyone who participates and scores at least 450 points will receive a special POAP from Badam. Anyone who participates and scores at least 750 points will be entered into a raffle for a The Hundreds mystery box. The participant with the most points at the end of the challenges will receive the missing Adam Bomb Squad NFT for free.
The holders of six specific Adam Bomb Squad NFTs are now eligible to claim royalties for the use of their NFTs in the latest Adam Bomb Squad clothing drop.
"As the fifth experiment using ABS NFTs in The Hundreds’ clothing lines, holders of the following token IDs get a 10% royalty (standard licensing fee) for their bomb being used: 7668, 8653, 16845, 2951, 7898, 4125," reads the royalty distribution website.
All royalty distributions at present time are delivered in the form of The Hundreds Gift Cards, allowing users to spend on select merchandise produced by the project.
The snapshot for the aforementioned token holders was taken on Monday, Sept. 12 at 3:00 p.m. ET.
Are you a holder of one of the featured ABS NFTs? Head to the royalty distribution site, connect your wallet, and fill out the form to earn your royalty.
Adam Bomb Squad holders can gain exclusive access to a new line of merchandise dropping today at 6:00 p.m. ET, according to a tweet from the project.
The latest clothing options will feature the stripes and cherries of the Adam Bomb Squad collection.
Holders looking to take advantage of the offer should be sure to head to the Adam Bomb Squad Discord ahead of the early release later tonight.
