"You could say it’s the Image Comics model all over again except for NFTs,” says McFarlane.

The co-founder of "Image of Comics" in 1992, McFarlane has experience giving creators and artists freedom and rewards for their contributions. Previously allowing creators to retain the rights to their work and the majority of the profit, this project isn't any different. OddKey NFT will adopt the same model and concept as Image Comics, but now with the added component and infrastructure of NFTs.

OddKey NFTs will mainly serve as an NFT marketplace where artists and creators can buy, sell, and collect NFTs at a less premium price. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, McFarlane acknowledged the crowd of "elite collectors" who can afford to pay "a lot for stuff." He said that there should be an opportunity for those to purchase what they like within their financial means.

Adverse to having his work auctioned despite the demand, McFarlane will be selling original digital art for the first time this century.

Signing up for OddKey NFT and a chance to win a SPAWNOKI

For Marvel fans keen on this partnership and NFTs, entering a chance to win one of the 6,666 SPAWNOKIs is simple. Since the marketplace hasn't launched, fans are encouraged to signup by entering their email. Once verified, OddKey will prompt and assist users to set up their "Phantom Wallet," which is a browser extension wallet similar to MetaMask.

After the wallet is set up, users will be able to redeem their "free NFT." Users who are interested in interacting more with the OddKey NFT platform should keep in mind that they will need Solana (SOL) tokens. The tokens can be purchased on cryptocurrency exchanges including Coinbase or FTX.

Using the Metaplex protocol dramatically lowers the transaction fees for buying and selling NFTs, which makes OddKey NFT a potential competitor to other NFT marketplaces like OpenSea or Coinbase NFT.
