Sponsoring Tribeca Film Festival: Bridging the physical and digital worlds
Neo joined forces with COZ and DegenzWTF to sponsor a film and introduce an exclusive collection of Hollywood NFTs. The NFTs were minted on the Neo blockchain and are associated with physical, original film frames from “Shadow Brother Sunday,” the directorial debut short film by Alden Ehrenreich. These unique collectibles enabled by technology from COZ were unveiled and auctioned for charity during the film’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere afterparty on June 9.
Further, COZ’s cutting-edge OneBand ring, an NFI (non-fungible item), which first debuted at the Neo Consensus 2023 exhibit, enabled buyers to use a simple tap-and-scan method to bid on the film frame collectibles. Like the film frames, this latest use case of OneBand explored the practical convergence of physical and digital assets enabled by blockchain technology. The successful, cross-party collaboration in support of Shadow Brother Sunday embodies another instance of Neo’s commitment to support innovative solutions driven by the projects in the Neo ecosystem.
