Orange Comet has been responsible for helping launch NFT collections with some of the biggest intellectual properties in the world. Last December, the NFT studio partnered with former Marvel writer Stan Lee’s company to release a series based on comic book superheroes. Orange Comet also announced its collaboration with the Seattle Kraken of the NHL in December, where it will release future NFT projects during the NHL season.

What are The Walking Dead NFTs?

Orange Comet, announced its partnership with AMC in February, and the two parties will create The Walking Dead NFT collections throughout the year. There are three collections currently planned this year, with the first release occurring on March 3. The collections are split into phases: Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3. Phase 1 was the initial sale of the Walkers Access Pass, Phase 2 will be the Year One collection, and Phase 3 is The Future collection.

The Phase 1 series is composed of 5,000 digital passes. The series went on sale on OpenSea for $311 on March 3 at 12:00 p.m. ET. The initial sale sold out within 24 hours. There were five categories of the NFTs: Legendary, Epic, Super Rare, Rare, and Uncommon. The Walker Access Passes were minted at random with each purchase, so all buyers had a chance at earning the more rare collectibles. The digital passes are based on the Ethereum blockchain.
