02/11/2022 ‘Rick and Morty’ Co-Creator’s NFT Collection Sees $14M in Trade Volume Hours After Mint

The project aims to create a “decentralized art ecosystem” using NFTs and complex tokenomics.


Another day, another buzzy non-fungible token (NFT) mint – this time forArt Gobblers, a collection created by television director and voice actor Justin Roiland with backing from Web3 venture firm Paradigm.

Roiland is the co-creator of the animated comedy show "Rick and Morty," which is especially popular among the crypto-native crowd. The collection, which was free to mint, has so far seen over 9,600 ETH (around $15 million) in trade volume since minting hours ago on Monday night, according todatafromnew NFT marketplace Blur.

Art Gobblers’ stated goal is to create a “decentralized art factory” using a combination of NFTs, a GOO token and community collaboration.

How it works

Each of the collection’s 2,000 NFTs are meant to function as own on-chain, transferrable art galleries. Owners of the NFTs can “digest” artwork created on the project’s website to add to their “art bellies,” which become curated collections that are also transferable.

Art can be minted using an ERC-20 token called GOO, which is earned by holding Gobblers. The tokenomics get a bit complex – after earning GOO, holders can create “Pages,” which are NFTs that act as blank canvases to either digest, trade or “glaminate” with custom artwork.

The art reveal for the NFTs is slated for Tuesday, but holders and non-holders can create off-chain art on the project’swebsiteas a preview of what’s to come.

At the time of writing, the collection has an impressive 11 ETH (around $17,000) floor price, according toaggregated datafrom Blur’s NFT marketplace. The collection has a royalty rate of 6.9%, and just under half of buyers are bypassing the royalty fee by using royalty-optional marketplaces like Blur and X2Y2.

In less than one day of trading, the collection is already in the top 10 for October sales volume, according todatafrom OpenSea.

Michael Jordan - Crown Collection
“All you needed was one little match to start that whole fire.”- Michael Jordan. In regards to both the action on the court and everything that happened off of it, Jordan provided a spark that changed the future in so many different ways throughout his tenure in Chicago, and even decades after the fact. And, in the end, he got everything that he wanted when he began his NBA journey: he turned the team and organization as a whole into a respected program, like the dynasties he looked up to as a child. Having steered the Chicago Bulls to an incredible six championship rings in eight years from 1991-1998, scooping up five MVP awards in the process, Jordan is one of just a handful of superstars who have truly transcended their sports. Jordan and Scottie Pippen’s (right) relationship both on and off the pitch was arguably the foundation of the Bulls’ incredible success. Scottie Pippen was present with Jordan for all six championships in eight seasons. Dennis Rodman (left) His relentless and smart play perfectly suited what Jordan and Jackson wanted to do to take the Bulls to greater heights. Although his exploits off the court earned him special fame, Rodman was unquestionably one of the greatest basketball players of his generation and one of the finest defensive players in the history of the game.
