OnlyFans Founder Tim Stokely is teaming up with RJ Phillips, another OnlyFans executive, to launch Zoop, an NFT trading card platform. After building a $1 billion business with OnlyFans, Phillips wants to enter and grow the NFT and Web3 space.
What is Zoom?
Zoop is a decentralized NFT trading card platform launched on the Polygon blockchain. Apparently, it will offer celebrity trading cards for its fans to collect, buy, sell, and trade on its marketplace. Zoop receives licenses from certain celebrities and influencers due to their partnerships with media companies.
A large team will be behind the creation of Zoop, especially developers with experience in Web3 projects. Not only RJ Phillips and Tim Stokely will lead the project as Co-CEOs. In his opinion, Zoop will be a “win for celebrities” and brands, as they will be able to interact with their fans and customers in new ways.
The project will start this summer. It will be family friendly and different from their original deal with OnlyFans.
The first drops on the platform contain 500 cards from each influencer. They are sold to users via Dutch Auction. After the auction, subsequent drops will be determined by demand.
A Priority Pass is currently available when the project comes out. These are for those who want to attend the pre-launch. The first batch is available here.
Involvement and support of Polygon
The platform will be hosted on the Polygon blockchain, but it’s unclear how they will be involved. However, they have shown their clear support for the project.
Polygon Studios COO Michael Blank stated, “We are excited to be working with the Zoop team as they build their platform on top of Polygon. Zoop aligns with our mission to bring Web3 technologies to a much broader demographic, and allowing fans to connect with their favorite stars through Polygon is another step towards that goal.”
