Child Shark is getting a second set of NFTs — sure, second

Baby Shark is getting a second set of NFTs — yes, second


Pinkfong, the corporate behind “Child Shark” — aka the track with the most-viewed video on all of YouTube — has introduced an NFT mission titled “Child Shark: Assortment No. 2.” The NFTs within the assortment, all 10,000 of them, will function generative artwork of the titular child shark and the remainder of his shark household. Generative NFTs are just like the Bored Ape Yacht Membership, the place there are a selection of randomized traits throughout a set.

After I first heard this information, I had two ideas concurrently (utilizing up my whole day by day allotment):

  • Please inform me they aren’t attempting to promote NFTs to youngsters


So, sure, that is apparently going to be the second set of NFTs that includes Brooklyn (TIL, that’s the child shark’s title) and his household. The primary was introduced late final 12 months and, in line with Pinkfong, bought out instantly. I remorse to tell you that individuals have spent tons of and even hundreds of {dollars} on these NFTs, although the preliminary sale occurred in December 2021. That was, in line with NonFungible’s market tracker, riiiight earlier than the NFT market began to stoop. Sadly, that in all probability means there are some Child Shark bag holders on the market.

As for whether or not Pinkfong is attempting to get youngsters on this… I’m actually unsure the place I land on that. Its roadmap (which, sure, does embody creating “Child Shark’s footprint and the universe in the metaverse”) very a lot appears written for traders and adults. Nonetheless, it additionally banks on you understanding and caring concerning the “Child Shark” characters and desirous to be a part of the neighborhood. That’s simply not one thing I see being true for many adults, although I assume I may all the time be improper about that.

What’s positively not for youths is the “Child Shark” social gathering at NFT.NYC that Pinkfong can be utilizing to have fun its second spherical of NFTs. The corporate describes the occasion as a “evening of implausible leisure, music, and networking,” and let me inform you; I’m completely dying to know what sort of networking goes on at a celebration for “Child Shark” NFTs. Am I curious sufficient to endure NFT.NYC to seek out out? Effectively, sadly, I’m too busy doing completely anything that day (plus, you recognize, I wasn’t invited for some cause). But when you find yourself going, please e-mail me to inform me what it was like.

I positively wouldn’t say this invite seems geared in the direction of youngsters.

When it comes all the way down to it, you received’t hear any judgment from me concerning the adults that personally determine to purchase into the “Child Shark” NFT bandwagon when this assortment comes out later this 12 months. (Not as a result of I don’t decide individuals for getting NFTs, however as a result of I often do it quietly.) However Pinkfong’s web site says that the corporate is about “defining the primary moments of childhood.” Dad and mom on the market, please — don’t outline your youngsters’ first moments with speculative property.
